Kangaroo Island vs Flinders Ranges or Both - October

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

So as part of a larger trip, I have taken ideas from these forums and decided to skip Ayers Rock and instead try to visit Kangaroo Island and Flinders Ranges.

I will be driving the Great Ocean Road for about 3 days, and was thinking of continuing on to Kangaroo Ferry crossing point (Cape Jervis), and then from there up to Flinders Ranges.

I have 8 days total for Great Ocean Road, Kangaroo, and Flinders.

Day 1 - Melbourne Drive out to Great Ocean Road - stay Apollo Bay
Day 2 - Great Ocean Road - stay at Port Cambell
Day 3 - Great Ocean Road to Port Cambell to Cape Jervis - that's 9 hours which is a little rough in one day - take 7 pm ferry to Kangaroo Island - stay overnight
Day 4 - Explore Kangaroo Island for most of day, ferry then drive to Adelaide (1.5 drive). Stay overnight there
Day 5 - Drive to Flinders Ranges - 6 hours!
Day 6 - Flinders Ranges - Wilpena Pound
Day 7 - Flinders Ranges - other stuff
Day 8 - Flinders (some time here) then drive back to Adelaide for flight out next day

Any thoughts of how to do this better? Am I trying to do too much?

Should I shorten Ocean Road part to give more time in Kangaroo?

Tough, there is just too many great things to explore and not enough time.

Thanks for any help.

Chris
