Kangaroo Island is the third largest of Australia's islands, situated just a few miles off the South Australia/Adelaide coastline. The island is famous for its nature reserves, being home to an array of diverse animals and plants. It has a variety of stunning scenery, much of which is provided by Flinders Chase National Park, as well as the Kelly Hill Conservation Park and Caves. Tourism is huge business here, and car hire on Kangaroo Island is popular due to the location's compact and driveable geography. Hiring a car on Kangaroo Island is available from Kingscote Airport and Penneshaw Wharf.
Most visitors to Kangaroo Island will arrive via Adelaide, then ferrying to Penneshaw Wharf. In Penneshaw you'll find some of the island's famous beaches - Brown Beach, Baudin Beach etc. - as well as Cape Willoughby Lighthouse. Visitors often go about hiring a car on Kangaroo Island, and then travel to destinations throughout, including Kingscote, which being the island's capital, is something of a commercial hub. Flinders Chase National Park and its surrounds are a tourist hotspot found in the west, but for accommodation, the North Coast and South Coast are both good to head to. The South Coast features the famous Seal Bay. Rent a car on Kangaroo Island and explore a limitless nature reserve of flora and fauna.
Visitors to Kangaroo Island 'KI', have free reign of the island's diverse territories if they hire a car - flitting easily form coastline-to-coastline, region-to-region. Some will be drawn to wonders like Kelly Hill Conservation Park and Caves in the west of the island - found via a combination of the Playford and West End Highways. Others will head for Vivonne Bay on the South of the island both for relaxation in the daytime, and for an evening stroll. For shops, hotels, restaurants and bars, Kingscote is definitely the place to be. On the North Coast you'll find Emu Bay and some highly scenic drives if you're hiring a car on KI.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
