Caravan Parks on Kangaroo Island

There are only four privately owned, managed caravan parks on Kangaroo Island, so at peak times it is wise to book ahead.  These are located at Penneshaw, Parndana, Kingscote (Brownlow) and Western Kangaroo Island near the entry to Flinders Chase National Park. For further information and bookings - call 13 13 01.

Taking your campervan or caravan to Kangaroo Island

Taking a van on the SeaLink ferry is no problem at all.  You must however pre-book your travel and specify the exact length of the caravan from tow bar to end of caravan.  The total length including your towing vehicle will also be required.

SeaLink ferries can accept any size/length vehicle and if you have any fears or troubles reversing it onto the ferry, don’t worry, our Crew will be happy to assist and do the maneuvering for you.

If towing a large van over 5 metres in length, please be aware that due to restricted turning room, low branches and road conditions, there will be some towns, areas and campgrounds on Kangaroo Island that may be generally inaccessible or only accessible dependent on road conditions e.g. American River, Murray Lagoon, D’Estrees Bay, Western River Cove, Antechamber Bay.

Campgrounds & Fires

Camping is only permitted in designated areas on Kangaroo Island and some can be booked ahead.  Campfires are only permitted in designated locations and wood fires are not permitted in National or Conservation Parks at any time.  Only gas and liquid fuel stoves are permitted.  No fires are permitted in any locations on a total fire ban day.

For road conditions, fire restrictions, campground booking information, you can contact the Gateway Visitor Information Centre in Penneshaw on arrival from the ferry or call 08 8553 1185.
