TYPICAL ITINERARY

Day 1 – Island Life
This full day tour is our signature experience which combines a range of wildlife encounters, some of the north coast and south coast landscapes, and an elegant barbecue at a private camp in the bush. The tour has a minimum of two guests and a maximum of twelve. Two guides host tours with guest numbers of seven or more. 

On this tour, get an introduction to Island life – where things take time, drivers wave as they go by – or even stop for a chat.

Have a cuppa with some home-made cakes before taking a walk down a country track through tall Eucalyptus trees where koalas snooze overhead, or wake briefly for a feed. Travel through some of our best farming country to the north coast. 

Walk through the bush with your guide – through a variety of habitat-types learning what makes that noise, whose tracks are those, and who left THAT little pile there? Look for wallabies almost extinct on the mainland, a kangaroo found only on Kangaroo Island and a variety of other birds, plants and animals.

Break for lunch and enjoy a delicious meal featuring King George Whiting (local sea fish), fresh salads and fine South Australian wines at a private bush camp.

At Seal Bay Conservation Park walk with your guide among Australian sea-lions on a beautiful sandy beach. Watch pups nursing, or playing in the surf, see old bulls bearing the scars of territorial disputes and learn about their unique breeding biology. 

At the conclusion of the tour, transfer to your accommodation for dinner, bed and breakfast.

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.

At the conclusion of the tour, transfer to your accommodation for dinner, bed and breakfast.

Day  3

After breakfast you will be transferred to the Kingscote Airport to connect with your flight to Adelaide.
