Definitely the highlight and best two days of our trip. From the outdoor teatime along the river to the unbelievable grilled fish, grilled cheese (yes, grilled cheese) fresh salad and wine, to the remarkable guide, the first day was truly exceptional. The things that we got to see up close and personal were sensational

Flinders Chase Focus
This full day share tour explores some of Kangaroo Island’s highlights and lesser known backtracks of Flinders Chase National Park - a wilderness covering nearly 200,000 acres. It is home to a wide array of wildlife species such as kangaroos, wallabies, possums, goannas, echidnas, koalas, platypus and many birds including rare Cape Barren Geese. In addition to the wildlife habitat the park also protects important geological features and cultural heritage sites.
Art of Nature
A full day private tour to introduce you to Kangaroo Island’s creative side - the solitude, wildlife and stunningcoastal landscapes have inspired many Islanders to express themselves artistically using a variety of media. A range of these artists have studios or galleries where we can gain an insight to their art, and explore their influences. Choose the art or studios you wish to visit - some of these require a prior appointment to ensure access.
A private tour visiting the pure source of Kangaroo Island’s extraordinary food. Discover the diversity of the produce, the passion of the producers, and experience the “paddock to plate” phenomenon.
