It’s time to grab the kids and jump in the car for a great family adventure to Kangaroo Island, with kids travelling for free on SeaLink ferries from 1 September until 13 December, 2013.
While children aged under three have always travelled free to Kangaroo Island, during spring up to three children aged three to 14 can travel free on SeaLink ferries when travelling with two full fare paying adults and a vehicle – a saving of up to $150. School holidays and the October long weekend are also included but some conditions apply.
“Spring is an amazing time to visit Kangaroo Island and with this great special, you just can’t afford to miss out,” SeaLink General Manager, Donna Gauci says.
“And the entire island is an adventure playground for kids offering everything from sand boarding at Little Sahara to fishing from the many beaches, jetties or charter boats, quad biking, kayaking, ocean safaris, caving and much more.
“Imagine following an echidna train through the bush, spotting koalas in the trees at Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, feeding kangaroos at the KI Wildlife Park, tasting delicious Ligurian Bee honey ice-cream at Clifford’s Honey Farm, seeing sheep being milked and then tasting the delicious cheeses and yoghurts at Island Pure Sheep Dairy and then topping it off with a climb to the top of Cape Willoughby Lighthouse, the first lighthouse to be built in South Australia.”
Ms Gauci says with the weather warming up, migratory birds are on the move, Australian sea-lions are basking on the beach at Seal Bay with their pups and some of the most beautiful, tiny, terrestrial orchids are flowering across the island.
“From breathtaking natural beauty that will leave adults in awe, to the numerous sandy beaches that kids will love, Kangaroo Island is the ultimate setting for any family holiday,” Ms Gauci says.
“Kangaroo Island is really about getting back to the things that matter and having the ultimate family holiday where connecting has nothing to do with smartphones. The kids will have experiences that aren’t available on the mainland in a city or suburban area – it really is a special place.”
SeaLink is a one-stop-shop offering more than 120 different accommodation properties ranging from hotels and motels through to B&Bs, apartments, caravan parks, cabins and holiday houses.
“Whether you’re looking for a coastal holiday house just metres from a pristine beach or a rural property where kids can spot kangaroos from the verandah, SeaLink has it covered,” Ms Gauci says.
