Day 2 – Flinders Chase Focus
After breakfast depart for your second day of touring.
This full day tour complements our Island Life tour with a focus on the wilderness of Flinders Chase National Park, a series of wildlife encounters, an elegant picnic lunch and explores some of the most iconic coastal scenery of Kangaroo Island. The tour has a minimum of two and a maximum of twelve guests and two guides once numbers exceed six guests.
Travel to the wild west end – a wilderness of over one hundred thousand hectares guarded against development in a series of conservation parks, a national park and wilderness protection areas. Break for morning tea en-route and learn about a century of conservation activities.
Explore the massive natural shapes of Remarkable Rocks – looking like some dramatic natural sculpture perched impossibly on top of a dome of granite emerging from the ocean.
Evidence of the power of the Southern Ocean swell continues at Admirals Arch – a coastal grotto which provides a haul out for a large colony of long-nosed fur-seals who swim effortlessly through the crashing waves.
Lunch today is a picnic enjoyed on the cliff tops or sheltered in the bush (dependant on weather) and consists of poached chicken, local cheeses, fresh fruit, a salad prepared on the spot and a choice of fine Kangaroo Island wines.
After lunch, get off the beaten path to explore some of the lesser known places seeking out more wildlife encounters. Depending on season, we visit “Grassdale” to experience some pioneer heritage or seek out kangaroos amongst endemic Tate’s grass trees which look like they are inspired by Dr Seuss.
On conclusion of the tour, transfer to Kingscote airport to connect with your return flight to Adelaide.
Please note: On share tours, touring days may be interchanged to suit prior bookings.
