Kids go free at Kangaroo Island’s national parks

Spring is a great time to visit Kangaroo Island as the weather gets warmer and the days get longer – and now kids can enjoy free entry to Flinders Chase National Park and Seal Bay’s popular boardwalk tour.

Kids go free at Seal Bay

As Kangaroo Island's premier tourist attraction, the award-winning Seal Bay offers visitors an unforgettable wildlife experience.

Purchase one adult ticket to receive one kid’s ticket free on the boardwalk self-guided tour from Monday, October 12 to Friday, December 11.

Boardwalk self-guided tours allow you to set your own pace along a 900m boardwalk (return) that features viewing platforms to watch Australian seal-lions surfing the waves or sunning themselves on the beach.

This offer is valid for children up to 15 years old and can be purchased on-site at the Seal Bay Visitor Information Centre. The boardwalk tour duration is about half an hour and can be taken at any time while the park is open from 9am with the last entry at 4pm.

Seal Bay is a 45-minute drive from Kingscote.

Kids go free at Flinders Chase National Park

Self-drive visitors to Flinders Chase National Park can share in the park’s bushfire recovery and stop at iconic tourist drawcards including Remarkable Rocks, Weirs Cove, Cape du Couedic lighthouse and Admirals Arch.

Book online before you go and purchase one adult ticket to receive one kid’s ticket free from Monday, October 12 to Friday, December 11 with the code 1FREECHILD.

You’ll have access to drive a safe route on Cape du Couedic Road – including the part which has become one of the most insta-famous roads in South Australia. Once at the sites you can browse around them on-foot.

The park is open from 9am until 5pm daily, with last entry at 3pm. Park gates are locked at 5pm, please allow 25 minutes' travel time from Remarkable Rocks/Admirals Arch to the gate.
