Getting to Your Cruise Ship
Get on board
Board cruises in four charming locations across South Australia: Adelaide, Kangaroo Island, Port Lincoln and Robe. All offer different gems for you to discover. No matter where you board or explore, you’ll see why South Australia is such a popular destination.
Getting to Adelaide
Adelaide has a vibrant mix of culture, sport and history. Renowned for festivals; it seems that there is something being celebrated every day in this beautiful city.
Adelaide Airport is a six kilometre (approximately 15 minute) drive from the city. Airport shuttle services operate regularly and drop you at the door of most city hotels.
Overnight and day buses are available from many metropolitan and regional areas. Buses arrive in the west end of the city and plenty of accommodation options are within a short walk. Make sure you stroll through Chinatown and visit the Adelaide Central Market on your way.
Signs will direct you through the city and there are parking facilities available. Public transport services the entire city, so it is often more efficient to jump on a bus or tram.
The Port Adelaide Passenger Terminal at Outer Harbor is 20 kilometres from the city and only 150 metres from the cruise terminal. On most days, trains run regularly to Adelaide Railway Station on North Terrace. The train is a great way to get into the city of Adelaide.
All interstate trains arrive and depart from the Adelaide Parklands Terminal, three kilometres west of the city. Taxis and shuttle buses meet every train. Airport shuttle buses operate between the rail terminal, the city and the airport.
Getting to Kangaroo Island
Fly to Kangaroo Island with Regional Express (REX). The airport is about 13 kilometres from Kingscote. There is no public transport. You can hire a car or join a tour that will pick you up from the airport.
The bus to Kangaroo Island leaves regularly from Adelaide. The bus meets the ferry at Cape Jervis on the Fleurieu Peninsula. It takes a little longer than driving yourself but you can admire the great scenery on your way to one of Australia’s premier islands.
Drive to Cape Jervis on the Fleurieu Peninsula and catch the connecting ferry to Kangaroo Island. There are several ferries each day but make sure you have a booking so you don’t miss out.
Getting to Port Lincoln
Regional Express flies to Port Lincoln and light public transport is available within the regional centre. An afternoon door-to-door "Dial-A-Ride" service is also operated in Port Lincoln. Bookings must be made two hours in advance.
Regional bus services operate to and from Port Lincoln every day of the week. It is a long trip but more flexible than some other options.
The drive to Port Lincoln is a long one from Adelaide but there is an option to take a ferry from Lucky Bay to Wallaroo. This shortens the journey significantly and is highly recommended.

Getting to Robe
State and regional buses service Robe regularly. Buses can be caught from many surrounding towns and regions. If you are travelling a long distance though, you may need to get to Adelaide first.
Robe is approximately 350 kilometres from Adelaide. The drive is scenic and travels through the Coorong National Park. Once you arrive in Robe, you can experience great South Australian wine regions or relax by the sea.
