Exceptional Kangaroo Island is one of Australia’s leading nature-based tour operators, and for over 28 years we have provided high-end small group or private experiential touring which promises good food, good wine and wildlife in the wild.

In addition to luxury small-group and private tours, Exceptional Kangaroo Island also offers specialist event-management.

The professional team have provided experiences ranging from fossil expedition support for the South Australian Museum through a private dinner party at Cape du Couedic lighthouse to an elegant wedding and reception for 150 people.

We cater for leisure, conference, executive retreat and corporate incentive clients with every file tailored to suit individual interests. Proposals are built up to a standard not down to a price in a complete package including:

  • Adelaide transfers
  • Flights or ferry service
  • Accommodation
  • Touring and activities and
  • Exceptional quality food and wine at spectacular outdoor venues
  • Experiences made to order

We work collaboratively with other Island suppliers to showcase the best the Island offers. For example, we can link up with LifeTime Private Retreats for elegant accommodation, food and beverage services; KI Marine Adventures for ocean rafting and wild dolphin swims; Dr Peggy Rismiller for wildlife lectures; Kangaroo Island Fishing Adventures for blue water escapes; and Cygnet Park for hands-on environmental rehabilitation and wildlife habitat restoration.

Technical touring

In addition to the world-class wildlife encounters and diverse landscapes which are central to any visit to Kangaroo Island, our staff use their excellent contacts for behind the scenes experiences which link directly with the interests of our guests. Examples of previous inclusions to guest itineraries include:

  • Penneshaw Desalination Plant – guests with a technical interest in innovative water-management solutions
  • Mark Capon – private gallery visit with a celebrated ceramic artist
  • Kangaroo Island Waste Transfer Station – for an understanding of leading rural waste management
