Roll-on/Roll-off terminal

Another relic of bygone days in Port Adelaide is this purpose built facility for the Troubridge; a vessel that provided an essential link for freight, vehicles and passengers to Kangaroo Island.

The Troubridge commenced service in 1961 and continued until 1987 when it was replaced by the Island Seaway which itself was withdrawn from service in 1995. Now the only sea link to Kangaroo Island is a ferry that runs from Cape Jervis, 107 km south of Adelaide.
