how far from ferry and is there a bus
The ferry arrives in Penneshaw which is a 45min drive to the town of Kingscote, where we are located. Kingscote is the largest town on Kangaroo Island and is well located for touring the island. There is no public transport on Kangaroo Island but there are shuttles which can be arranged through the ferry company SeaLink or KI Transfers. More information is available on our website.
