Day 1: Kangaroo Island (L)
Early morning pick up from your Adelaide or Glenelg hotel for a scenic coach journey to Cape Jervis taking in the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula with its vineyards, coastal views and rolling hills. On arrival, board the SeaLink Kangaroo Island ferry for the 45 minute crossing to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Here you will board your luxury SeaLink coach and your local driver/guide will take you on a tour of South Australia's premier nature-based tourism destination.
Your first official stop will be Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery where you will listen to an introductive talk about the history of the oil distillery and take a guided tour. Finish off with some free time in their souvenir shop where you will find an assortment of Eucalyptus products. Continue onto Vivonne Bay Bistro located on a 260 hectare bush property, for a delicious two course lunch.
After lunch visit Seal Bay Conservation Park and enjoy a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger amongst a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian sea lions. Your tour will then visit another amazing wildlife attraction, the fascinating In-flight Birds of Prey Display at Raptor Domain. Enjoy a delightful interactive experience and meet an array of birds and raptors.
From here you will travel to Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park where you can get up close with Koalas, see Penguins swim and play, hand feed Kangaroos and Wallabies, learn about endangered species, interact with Snakes, Crocodiles and reptiles and experience Kangaroo Island Wildlife at your fingertips! Your coach will return to your choice of overnight accommodation in Kingscote, American River or Penneshaw.
Day 2: Kangaroo Island to Adelaide (BL)
After your morning hotel pick up, your second day of touring begins at Clifford's Honey Farm to enjoy an informative talk by the beekeeper, followed by tastings and an opportunity to sample homemade honey ice-cream and honey beauty products.
Next, travel to Hanson Bay Visitor Centre Cafe for a scrumptious two course lunch. After lunch you will have the chance to look for Koalas nestled u pin the eucalypts and see an abundance of native birdlife in the Wildlife Sanctuary.
Next, travel to the western most part of the Island and Flinders Chase National Park, one of Australia’s largest and earliest conservation parks. One third of Kangaroo Island has never been cleared of natural vegetation and the thick eucalypt scrub is the habitat of many species of wildlife, much of which is uncommon or extinct on the mainland. After a short stop at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre travel through the park and enjoy breath-taking views of its unique trees, plants and coastal scenery. You will be taken to the rugged southern coastline for a walk on Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. Remarkable Rocks provide great photographic opportunities and stunning sea views. Admirals Arch boardwalk takes you down a rugged cliff face to reveal this spectacular arch, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful Long-nosed Fur Seals that can be seen swimming and playing in the waves, or resting on the rocks.
There is also a possibility that you will see more kangaroos and wallabies as we return to Penneshaw for the return journey to Adelaide.
