Experience Wildlife & Spectacular Scenery at a Leisurely Pace

from
$509pp

Take the time to explore Kangaroo Island, one of Australia's best nature-based tourism destinations and one of Australia's national landscapes.

This relaxed yet comprehensive two day tour allows you to discover Kangaroo Island's fascinating wildlife, spectacular coastal scenery, stunning landscapes and unique local produce.

The 2-day tour departs daily from Adelaide, Goolwa and Victor Harbor, Cape Jervis and from Kangaroo Island if you are already staying there. We’ll pick you up and return you to your Adelaide accommodation, or you can choose to board at the Adelaide Central Bus Station.

  • Selected Hotel pick up / set downs
  • Return transfers and ferry or flights
  • Two full days of touring in our air-conditioned coach with expert commentary from your local driver/guide
  • One night accommodation of your choice with options of penguin tours and other nocturnal walks depending on location
Day 1
An early morning pick up from your hotel for a scenic coach journey to Cape Jervis taking in the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula with its vineyards, coastal views and rolling hills. On arrival, board the SeaLink ferry for the 45 minute crossing to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Here you will board your luxury SeaLink coach and your local driver/guide will take you on a tour of South Australia’s premier nature-based tourism destination. Your first official stop will be Clifford’s Honey Farm to enjoy an informative talk by the beekeeper followed by tastings and an opportunity to sample homemade honey ice-cream and honey beauty products. Then travel onto Vivonne Bay Bistro located on a 260 hectare bush property, for a delicious two course lunch. After lunch visit Seal Bay Conservation Park and enjoy a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger amongst a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian Sea-lions. Your tour will then visit another amazing wildlife attraction, the fascinating Birds of Prey free-flight demonstration, an interactive and educational display of native Australian birds and raptors. From here you will travel to Kingscote to watch the pelican feeding and learn a little about these fascinating and ancient birds, before being transferred to your choice of overnight accommodation.
Day 2
After your morning hotel pick up, your second day of touring begins at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, an interesting bush engineered eucalyptus distillery that makes the most of its environmental resources. After testing and tasting the eucalyptus products, travel to the centre of the Island to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park where you can feed kangaroos, have your photograph taken with a koala, and enjoy a guided tour of the park. Next, travel to Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary to look for Koalas nestled up in the eucalypts, and then travel to the western most part of the Island, Flinders Chase National Park, where you will enjoy a scrumptious two course lunch at Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat. After lunch and a short stop at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre, travel through the park and learn about its unique trees and plants. See the rugged southern coastline, and enjoy a walk around Remarkable Rocks, providing spectacular photographic opportunities, before continuing on to Admirals Arch, where the boardwalk takes you down a rugged cliff face to reveal this spectacular arch, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful New Zealand fur seals that can be seen swimming and playing in the waves, or resting on the rocks. There is a possibility you will see more wildlife on your journey back to Penneshaw, where you will join the ferry and coach for your return transfer to Adelaide.

Service: staff were very helpful and friendly in the booking and giving information on the various options. The bus driver was very jolly as well ,and thoughtful for his passengers.

Product: we could only be there for one night. Your package was an excellent way to see as many special places as possible. Being on a tour, as we arrived at seal bay,Eucalyptus oil distillery, The Ligurian Bees, birds of prey, and more, a quide would be ready to give us information. We could not have seen so much if we had hired a car. We were very pleased with our choice.

The service was excellent. The commendatory provided by the SeaLink tour guide was great and you could always ask questions about the island.

The tour was well organised and if we were early, the tour guide would drive us to another location so no time was wasted.

I would highly recommend go on a two day tour instead of seeing the island in one day. There is just too much to see to appreciate it for just one day.

Service: The coach ride to Port Jervis was calm and informative, the ferry ride was a bit rocky (but that can't be helped) and the staff were all nice and happy to help

Product: We had a small group and every single moment was perfect. Fro the scenery, to the drive and people we were with. Greg the driver was very personal and informative. It was like we were all friends including Greg who knew each other before the tour and the tour felt like a scenic ride with friends. We joked, laughed, got to know each other and Greg went the extra mile and took us to attractions that weren't on the schedule and it was absolutely perfect in every aspect. I could not ask for a better driver and fellow passengers. I have been on tours before but this made me want to move to K.I. just from the tour and sense of community. I have already begun to recommend the tour to my friends and family.

Service: I booked the tour quite late and I requested for flight from KI to Adelaide, which flight appeared to be sold out. However, SeaLink went out of their way to check whether the flight could fit in another passenger. SeaLink quickly sent a follow-up email to inform me that the airline was able to arrange for another passenger on the flight. It was a last minute decision to go to KI, and I was very pleased that SeaLink was absolutely responsive to fulfill my requests in that short time frame.

Product: Guide was always punctual and very knowledgeable. Pace of tour was lovely and relaxed, allowing ample time for roaming and photo-taking.

Service: Really pleased with transport, itinerary, lunches and in particular our excellent driver/ guide, Larry. The accommodation at Kingcote Motel was OK but not great. Perfectly adequate, clean and friendly with a lovely seafront to enjoy a bracing walk. I would probably recommend people of my age group to upgrade to a better ( and more expensive ) hotel.

Product: An excellent insight into this fascinating island made even more memorable by our informative, personal guide, Larry. I have recommended this tour to other people.

Service: We enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to our friends in the U.S.A. Two days was just enough to get a taste of the island.

Product: Our tour had a good mix of natural beauty and native animals. Les, our guide, was knowledgeable and it was good to have a "local" show us around. The low point was our ferry trip back when we hit a storm, but we managed the best we could under the difficult circumstances. The boat crew was very helpful.
