We will be visiting Adelaide soon but only have 4 days to spend, we will be doing the Barossa Valley for sure but looking to fill another day or two, would really like to do Kangaroo Island. Is it possible to visit Kangaroo Island in one day? A friend I have asked said you need to stay overnight to do it properly but I was looking at prices of overnight stay and it looks prohibitively expensive!
Can we fit KI into our itinerary and still have a good time do you think? Thank You
Hi @WA_Traveller, welcome to the community!
In regards to Kangaroo Island, it IS possible to do KI in a single day but it becomes a VERY long day that requires an early wakeup and a lot of travel as you'll be spending a couple of hours each way. We do offer a single-day tour here: http://www.experienceoz.com.au/kangaroo-island-day-tour/ that attempts to cover as many of the highlights of Kangaroo Island as possible, however given its size it's hard to fit everything in and you'll be tired (but impressed!) by the end of the day.
Given that your itinerary is 4 days only, it also might be better to do alternative trips such as Hahndorf, McLaren Vale, Victor Harbour or the Fleurieu Peninsula (assuming you are interested) instead.
KI is amazing however, so if you're really set on seeing it, go for it! :)
