From Sydney to Adelaide and Kangaroo island


My friend want absolutely see Kangaroo island. We don´t have so much time but would like to do two-three days trip from Sydney to Adelaide and Kangaroo Island during Ester time.

Does anybody know good company who make this kind of trips? And we are not wealthy and famous so price should be on reasonable level.

Hello do you mean a road trip or are you flying to Adelaide?

A two to three day road trip from Sydney to Kangaroo Island would not leave you a lot of time on the island.

Whist one can "tick off " some of the main places within a day tour I personally believe that the Island deserves more time if one wishes to really experience it.

Your options are to fly into Adelaide and either fly directly down to the island (30 mins) and then explore via hire car OR a booked tour with someone like Craig Wickham from Exceptional KI Tours as an example

OR fly into Adelaide, and taxi to catch Sealink Bus at Adelaide Central Bus station for a 2 1/4 hr trip to the Island and optional Tour by bus.

Take a look at SEALINK for information re tours and transfers


Also.. remember that Easter is a PEAK season for the island so accommodation etc books out fast. I would not leave it too much longer to book your transfers and transportation requirements.
