The Sun is usually intense for most months of the year and good sun protection is important such as long sleeve shirts, hats and skin coverings as sunburn even on a cool day can happen very quickly without people really becoming aware of it until much later.
Drinking water is also important as Kangaroo island does not have a lot of places / shops in more remote areas of the island to purchase drinks and refreshments. This is changing over time but with country travel if your car breaks down you don't want to be uncomfortable and thirsty too. Travelling those dirt roads you won't see many locals and mobile phones can't be relied upon yet down the western end of the island.
Starting out with sunscreens / proper covered clothing, jackets etc for all weathers and good drinking water is a basic we just don't leave home without.Find out More! Send us an Email!
