Itinerary

Day 1 : Adelaide to Kangaroo Island - Seal Bay
From our comfortable bus, you’ll appreciate the fantastic coastal views as we head towards Kangaroo Island along the Fleurieu Peninsula. After driving for 90 minutes, we hop aboard the ferry for the 45-minute cruise to the picturesque beach side village of Penneshaw, where we stock up on supplies. Our first stop will be at Pennington bay for a fantastic photo opportunity on one of the most scenic Kangaroo Island beaches, and who knows, if we are lucky we might spot a few dolphins! The highlight for many is the guided tour along the pure-white beach of Seal Bay, where you can walk within metres of countless Australian Sea Lions snoozing on the sand or frolicking in the surf. Or maybe your favourite part will be the Flinders Chase National Park in the far west of the island, which hosts two extraordinary geological features: the Remarkable Rocks and the Admirals Arch, which is also home to a colony of New Zealand Fur Seals. Our dormitory style accommodation is located within a farm on the edge of the national park. After dinner, we sit around the campfire swapping stories and maybe spotting wildlife, such as kangaroos and possums.
Meals :Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 : Flinders Chase National Park
After breakfast, our wildlife adventure continues! In the cooler morning weather, we can hike one of the many walking trails on the island where you can watch kangaroos hopping about the bush, koalas nesting in their favourite gum trees and possibly spot a shy echidna shuffling past. In the summer months, we spend some time swimming and snorkelling in search of the elusive leafy sea dragon which resides off the coast. You can laze about Vivonne Bay, Hanson Bay, Stokes Bay or one of the other superb beach spots with their pristine sand and clear water, or alternatively you can follow the nearby trail along the beach and river to search for more wildlife. The action packed afternoon starts with sand-boarding down the Little Sahara dunes. We leisurely paddle with kayaks along the Harriet River, but if you do crave something more adventurous, quad-biking along rocky paths through dense scrub is an optional extra. From Penneshaw, we reluctantly take the ferry to Cape Jervis for the drive back to Adelaide to arrive at around 8:30pm.

    This 2 day and 1 night tour allows you to discover Kangaroo Island's fascinating wildlife, spectacular coastal scenery, stunning landscapes and unique native wildlife. The walks are easy to medium, with some rugged terrain but not long hikes. The sandboarding maybe challenging for some, you have the option to just try it once and then relax on the sand dunes. The accommodation is on a farm stay, so comfortable and basic. Private single or double rooms can be booked if you prefer.
