Cape Jervis, SA

Cape Jervis is the departure point for the daily car and passenger ferry service to Kangaroo Island, where you can embark on a 45 minute journey across Backstairs Passage that reveals the rugged and spectacular coastline of this part of the Fleurieu Peninsula. This is a popular base for fishermen, with good boat, jetty and beach fishing, as well as various boating services available – even fresh fish for those without time or inclination to catch their own. There are also several local operators that provide fishing charters and boat cruises along the coast. Bushwalkers have nearby Deep Creek Conservation Park or they can walk from Cape Jervis to Victor Harbor, which is a section of South Australia's famed four-day Heysen Trail.
