Getting to Sunrise on Falie

Sunrise on Falie is located in a township called American River, located on Kangaroo Island - a pristine island just off of the coast of South Australia, famous for its unspoilt natural scenery, fine food, dining, wildlife and adventures.

There are 2 common ways to come to K.I.



Sealink operate South Australia's ferry service between the mainland, leaving from Cape Jervis, across to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island.

Many ferries leave throughout the day, carrying passengers and cars. It takes about 15 minutes for a ferry to be loaded and then again unloaded the other side. The crossing itself takes about 45 mintues, depending on the weather.

SeaLink passenger boarding ramps have wheelchair access and there is also a restroom onboard each ferry which allows wheelchair access.  Should you require a wheelchair an electric one is available  upon request when booking.  

Full details on schedules and pricing can be found on the Sealink Website

Their site allows you to book passenger and vehicle trips either online or by phone (Australian number 131301).   Ask us about our Family and Friends discount.  We suggest a morning ferry to arrive as there is so much to see near the Ferry arrival point that you will want to take your time heading to us.

Once arriving on Kangaroo Island at Penneshaw, it takes first time visitors about 30 minutes to drive around to American River to locate Sunrise on Falie. This is not a crowded Island and for some International Visitors its a bit surprising to have the roads so free of traffic.   Take your time. Along the way, why not stop off at Pennington Bay (5 minutes off main road) for your first look at the Southern Ocean in whatever mood it has in mind at that very moment.  Its well signposted.
