Have our trip booked to KI and very excited

We're very appreciative of all the info to be found on this site. We're a party of 3 and heading over on Sat 24th for 4 days. We're having 2 nights at Vivonne Bay and 2 nights at Kingscote with a car to self tour. Have scoured all the iniformation available and think we've got it covered. All we have to do now is pray it's not too rough on the ferry (have already bought the Kwells)! Even so, I think it'll be worth a bit of seasickness if it's half as good as what I'm imagining. We'll round off with 4 days in Adelaide and back to Qld. It's great to get the oil from people who've been there.

It will be cold and quite possibly wet - be sure to bring plenty of warm clothes and rain gear.

Glad that we've been able to help. Hopefully you will find the weather great but I also think that the Ruggedness of KI's coastline in winter has its own appeal. If you find an inclement day, simply head off to Kelly Hill Caves and spend some time underground ! Make sure to see the Remarkable Rocks early in the morning or late afternoon for best light. Ensure you have a king george whiting burger at the Vivonne Bay local store and try the Honey Ice cream at cliffords honey farm if you can.. :) The local galleries are also well worth a visit, may be tempting to take a souvenir home with you.

If staying at Vivonne Bay, remember that supplies down that end of the island are limited so take any MUST HAVE's (ie particular brand of coffee, tea ) with you .
