Day 1: Kangaroo Island (LD)
Depart Adelaide and enjoy a scenic coach trip through the Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis where you will board the SeaLink ferry for the 45-minute journey across Backstairs Passage to Kangaroo Island. On arrival in Penneshaw meet your local Driver/Guide.
First stop is Rob's Shearing & Sheep Dogs to enjoy a sheep shearing demonstration by a real Aussie character before heading to Pennington Bay, a spectacular beach and a great photo opportunity. Continue to Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, the only commercial eucalyptus distillery in South Australia and visit stunning Seal Bay where you will have the opportunity to get up close to a wild breeding colony of rare Australian sea lions. At Little Sahara explore the huge white sand dunes and test your skills at sandboarding.
Arrive at Vivonne Bay Lodge, where you will have the opportunity to spend some free time kayaking on the Harriet River, swimming at Vivonne Bay Beach, take a self-guided walk through the property tracks, go trail bike riding or simply relax. Back at camp there are complementary activities to keep you occupied before and after your BBQ dinner. As darkness sets, see Kangaroos, Tamar Wallabies and Possums, relax around the fire (except in summer months) or kick back on the deck with a glass of local wine before retiring to the comfort of your bed.
Day 2: Kangaroo Island to Adelaide (BL)
After breakfast get up close to more wildlife at Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary where you will look for koalas nestled up in the eucalypts and see kangaroos grazing on the open fields. Continue onto Flinders Chase National Park where you will marvel at Remarkable Rocks; huge granite boulders sculptured by nature. Enjoy the spectacular coast and seascapes as you head around to Admirals Arch at Cape Du Couedic where we watch the resident Long-nosed Fur Seals frolic in the ocean or sunbake on the rocks. Enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre.
Head to the beautiful and secluded ‘secret’ beach of Stokes Bay and take a walk at Ironstone Hill (time permitting) to find wallabies and admire the spectacular view back to the mainland. If time and weather permit, several stops may be made en route to Penneshaw, allowing time to purchase dinner (own expense) before the return journey to Adelaide. Return flight from Kingscote Airport to Adelaide available (KI2CF Option only - additional cost).
