Kangaroo Island to the Barossa

Hello,

I'm travelling from Sydney with my husband and parents. We have 5 nights to see Kangaroo Island (staying at Southern Ocean Lodge) and the Barossa Valley and are wondering how to break it down!

We are planning to do 3 nights at KI, and then arrive back to Adelaide around 11am Tues and drive via Adelaide Hills to the Barossa for 2 nights, having to get back to Adelaide at dinner time on Thursday night.

Do you think this is enough time, or shall we swap it around and do 2 nights at KI and 3 in the Barossa....

Help appreciated!!..Claire

Bump.. ..

Your itinerary looks okay to me.. I would consider using most of your time on KI. 3 nights KI & 2 nights Barossa.

Lucky you staying at Southern Lodge !!

Are you driving from Sydney with your own car ?? or are you hiring a car from Adelaide to drive to KI ?

My TR which may also assist you.

Thankyou!

I just read your review and I hope it's not too windy or cloudy in Nov when we're there!

We're flying from Syd to Adelaide, and then hopping on a rex flight to Kingscote. I think with the weight restrictions, we will need to leave luggage in a locker at Adelaide airport, which I notice you did - did you find them easy to locate and use? Thanks for that!

And you didn't happen to travel to the Flinders Ranges by any chance?! We head there after the Barossa...Claire

Yes; the luggage lockers are very easy to find across the road from the airport outside the car rentals.

Yes.. we just went to the Flinders a few weeks ago. Here is my other TR on the Flinders.
