We are planning a two day break on Kangaroo Island when we are on our Adelaide recci in October.
Can anyone recommend places to stay, bearing in mind we will be with two children (6 & 3).
HI Fiona and Rory
We have not yet been to Kang Island but would love to soon. Might be worth looking at the tourist info site (not sure of address) and getting some info from there. Obviously you need to book the crossing too. Good luck with it - will watch this thread for info ....
We are off to KI in a couple of weeks, might be to late by then wiil let you know anyway.
Incidentally we were from up the road from you in Caversham Reading.
Came over in January.
If only here for a recci with two small children would not waste time on kI just look arround all the suburbs where you think you would like to live meet up with a few people here and take the kids to see a few animals if you are going to live here you have plenty of time 4 kI you need to think of your kids they have traveled a long way.
all the best alan and laura taylor woodcroft.
Really good point Laura - they are plenty of other places to see wildlife whilst you are here. Save this trip for when you are here and can go over for a week or so.

Wish I could be more positive about it all, but, still so unsure.
Thanks for all the info, cheers Fi

Thanks for your help Wendy. We only plan to visit the Island for two nights as most of the time in Adelaide we want to get a feel for the city and suburbs. I'll look on the web-site later today. Cheers, Fiona
