In addition to the countless sights on mainland Australia, we love to inform you on two gems, Tasmania and Kangaroo Island. A visit to either of these islands is the ultimate addition to a trip through South Australia. Tasmania is a rugged island where nature still has the upper hand. Although it is the smallest state in Australia, it does contain the most natural parks and protected areas. Kangaroo Island is the third largest island in Australia and gives a completely different insight in the daily lives of the Ozzies. Eco tourism is booming here, and the island is known for its honey, wine and wool.
Although ferries between the mainland and both islands sail on a daily basis, it is advisable to book the ferry crossing in advance. This way you are guaranteed a spot on board. By booking in advance you must determine the number of days on the island in advance. But that way you can be sure that you will not get stuck on one of the islands because the ferry is fully booked. We will of course be happy to help you book the crossing.
TotallyCampers not only helps you hire a campervan in Australia. Your personal travel advisor is also happy to arrange other aspects of your trip. Booking the ferry crossing from Melbourne to Devonport, Tasmania for example. Or the ferry to Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island from Cape Jervis in mainland Australia. But our service goes further.
Fill in your desired dates in the specific quotation form for your desired crossing and specify which type of vehicle you will take along on the crossing. Your personal travel advisor will then make you an offer. If you have already received a quote and want to book it, you can do so through the booking form.

Tasmania is perhaps best known as the home of the Tasmanian Devil. But with over 30% of the island designated as protected nature reserve, nature lovers will have a blast here. The ferry crossing takes about 10 hours and sails, except in the high season, at night. Accommodations are available for a varied budget. For example, there are Deluxe Cabins where you lack nothing. There is everything in between before you come to the cheapest option, the Ocean Recliners. We will of course be happy to help you choose your ideal accommodation on the ferry.
In addition to its own Kangaroo Island kangaroo, the island has a lot to offer. A glimpse into the undisturbed Australian nature for example. As the exotic red foxes and European rabbits do not occur here, this is what Australia looked like before the European settlers set foot on land. The island, of which a third is protected, has never been fully cultivated and is still largely overgrown with eucalyptus forests and tree savannas.
Unlike the ferry to Tasmania, the one to Kangaroo Island is a lot faster. With a 45-minute sail from Cape Jervis you are in Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island. Two ferries sail to and from the island daily, sometimes up to twelve crossings a day. All facilities for a carefree crossing are available. The chance that you will miss a spot is smaller, but especially in the high season it is smart to book the crossing in advance. Of course, we are happy to help you with this.
