Day 1: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island (Lunch and Dinner included)
You will be picked up from your accommodation and transferred to Cape Jervis for your ferry to the Island. On arrival at Kangaroo Island, your guide will welcome you with an island introduction before set off on your wilderness adventure. First we drive through Penneshaw on route to glorious Pennington Bay. After an early picnic lunch at a secluded location, we have a unique wildlife encounter where we wander amongst the rare Australian Sea Lion colony at Seal Bay. The opportunity to watch the Sea Lions up-close is an experience not to be missed. Next we trek over the sand dunes of Little Sahara before we head off to explore the underworld of Kangaroo Island! Under a vast expanse of native bushland, a maze of caves and tunnels will take your breath away. The Kelly Hill Caves are a hidden secret and you’ll enjoy a 1 hour guided tour of the caves taking in the ornate calcite formations. Onward we journey along the South Coast road seeking out the fluffy looking gumleaf eater – better known as the Koala. We then make our way to our overnight accommodation. Tonight after dinner we will have the opportunity to seek out the nocturnal wildlife once more or swap stories under the clear starry skies.
Accommodation: Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat – twin share
Day 2: Kangaroo Island to Adelaide (Breakfast and Lunch included)
It’s an early start today so that we are amongst the first to experience Flinders Chase National Park, visit the magnificent formation of Admirals Arch and get up close with New Zealand Fur Seals as they frolic in the Southern Ocean. In the months of May-September you may even be lucky enough to spot Southern Right Whales from this spectacular view point. After a short drive, we then wander through the geological monuments of Remarkable Rocks, an incredible display of millions of years of wind and ocean weathering. Next stop is Rocky River Headquarters where, through the interpretive centre we learn more about the island’s habitat including the recent find of Mega-Fauna in the nearby locality. After lunch take a short wilderness trek on any one of three
bushland trails. Here we allow plenty of time for photos of the exquisite flora and fauna, taking in the contrasting river and coastal scenery. We then head to one of the beautiful secluded beaches of the North Coast of Kangaroo Island, Western River Cove, Snorkelling Beach and Stokes Bay are dotted along the island’s North Coast. Late in the day, there is further opportunity for viewing Kangaroos and Tammar Wallabies as they come out to graze in the open fields. To finish off our day we’ll enjoy the Pelican Feeding spectacle at Kingscote Wharf. Armed with the best photos of wildlife & scenery imaginable, we head to your point of departure for your return back to Adelaide.
