Fishing License in South Australia

Hello, is there anyone who comes from local South Australia? My father and my mom are planning a trip to Kangaroo Island and they want to experience the fishing trip, but I have heard there are a lot of sea areas that need a fishing license. For a traveler it could be more difficult? Are there any sea areas for open to go fishing? I'm so confused about the information in those fishing websites. Any Kangaroo Island tips and rules will be appreciated. . . .

Single mum wanting to travel with 4 kids need advice

Hi I'm a single mum with 4 kids. Son 12, daughter 10, twin girls 5. My son is meant to be starting high school this year and my twins primary school. But last year was an awful year with my husband leaving us. I am renting and thinking of selling all our furniture and car and either buying a converted bus or a car and caravan. I would like the children and myself to live life to the fullest. My ex husband is a man who doesn't believe in adventure and would never be willing to just pack up and go for it. So now that we are no longer together I am seriously thinking about doing it. The kids are really keen. I need advice please. Am I doing the right thing? We won't have much money to put towards the bus or vehicle and caravan so I would love . . .
