Car Rental Kingscote Airport

Kingscote will be your base of operations during your travels around Kangaroo Island. Kingscote is on the eastern tip of Kangaroo Island, around a 15-minute drive from the Kingscote Airport. Kangaroo Island is off the coast of South Australia, with a ferry connecting the two. It is around a 3.5-hour journey between Kingscote and the South Australian capital of Adelaide, making the drive and ferry trip between the two an ideal journey. Driving along the St Vincent Gulf offers stunning views with the gulf on one side and inland forest on the other.

Kingscote is the largest town on Kangaroo Island, by a large factor. Filled with restaurants and wineries, it is the ideal foodie travel location. Fresh produce is used by the restaurants year-round from the island, from seafood, wine, honey, spirits, and beer. The local produce is sure to surprise and delight with its world-class quality and flavour.

You can also find plenty of other attractions on Kangaroo Island, such as art galleries, museums, boutique shops and heritage-listed buildings. But the real surprise is the geography, with stunning rocky coasts, abundant wildlife, natural swimming pools and wilderness trails bringing locals and visitors alike out into nature for unforgettable moments and experiences.

Hop into your rental car to take in Kangaroo Island’s nature

Kangaroo Island has some remarkable scenery, with rugged cliffs, secluded pools and dense forests. Here, you will find opportunities to spot the smallest penguin in the world, the aptly named ‘Little Penguin’, with an average height of just 13 inches.

To pack in the best of nature on the Island, Flinders Chase National Park is a must. See long-nosed fur seals, rocky cliffs, stunning lookout points and secluded enclaves.

If you are desperate to get a guaranteed look at some of the island's native inhabitants, the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park has over 800 animals. Hand feed kangaroos and get an up-close look at wallabies and koalas. With daily talks and feedings, it’s a fun day out and a great addition to touring the island's nature.

Bound around town in Kingscote with a car hire

Fine Art Kangaroo Island is a gallery representing more than 50 of the local artists from the island.

Buy some artwork from the store and take home something to remind you of your travels on Kangaroo Island.

Stop by the Hope Cottage Museum and learn the heritage of Kangaroo Island. Originally built in 1859, the home is now the site of a museum, with period artefacts and furniture. The cottage represents early life on the island, with a blacksmithing forge, shearing shed, tractors and farm machinery and an extensive archive.

Come for nature but stay for the wine. A series of world-class wineries are dotted throughout the island, with 7 wineries open to the public. Guided tours and tastings are offered with cellar door; stroll through the winery grounds as you enjoy the unique flavour of each one. Also on the island are spirits, with Kangaroo Island spirits producing vodka, and gin, Kangaroo Island Ciders produce, well cider, and the Kangaroo Island brewery producing various beers from stout to ale. From larger wineries to boutique wineries, the weather and geographic position, and soil produce some incredibly diverse wine and spirits for such a comparatively small island. What could be better than responsibly sipping on a world-class one of your choice with sea views? All the wineries are accessible by road with your rental car and varying distances from Kingscote; some are a few minutes’ drive, others on the opposite side of the island. Driving across the island takes slightly over an hour, please make sure you drive responsibly and have a designated driver.
