Remarkably Wild

(on island only)

from
$167pp

After your morning hotel pick up, visit 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. Next, travel to Hanson Bay Visitor Centre Café for a scrumptious two course lunch.  After lunch you have the chance to look for Koalas nestled up in the eucalypts and see an abundance of native birdlife in the wildlife sanctuary.

From here, travel to the western most part of the Island, Flinders Chase National Park, one of Australia’s largest and earliest conservation parks. Travel through the park and enjoy breath-taking views of its unique trees, plants and coastal scenery. You will be taken to the rugged southern coastline for a walk around Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. Remarkable Rocks provide great photographic opportunities and stunning sea views. Admirals Arch boardwalk takes you down a rugged cliff face to reveal this spectacular arch, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful Long-nosed Fur Seals that can be seen swimming and playing in the waves, or resting on the rocks.

There is also a possibility that you will see more kangaroos, wallabies and wildlife on your return journey back to your overnight accommodation on Kangaroo Island or your return journey back to Adelaide.

Please note: To participate in this tour you must be on Kangaroo Island. There is no early morning connection from the mainland.

Service: Good service, quick and well-organized transfer ferry.

Product: Very kind and gentle guide and staff, but the Tour was a bit too quick and differed not much from what I made alone with my car at less than half the price. I recommend it only if you are not planning to bring your own car (4wd is not required, but mind the car insurance) on Kangaroo Island.

Response from SeaLink:

Thank you for providing some feedback regarding the Remarkably Wild Tour with SeaLink. Sorry to hear that you were not happy with the tour. SeaLink offers a number of different tours to cover some of the great attractions on Kangaroo Island. Our most popular tour is a One Day Kangaroo Island Experience tour that includes Seal Bay Conservation Park and Flinders Chase National Park. The Remarkably Wild Tour that you experienced is part of our 2-Day Best of Kangaroo Island tour and includes some of the island attractions that are not included on the one day tour. The best thing about travelling on a tour is that you get to hear about Kangaroo Island from our local guides and you can sit back and relax while someone else does the driving. A self-drive holiday to the island is also a great option for more independent travellers and you can take your own car or hire one on the island.

Thanks and kind regards,

Product: This is the second day of the 2-day Kangaroo island tour. It would be better if the tour finish a bit earlier and catch the earlier ferry back to Adelaide.

Service: Sealink computer programme gave some initial problems with booking, however this was solved when speaking personally to a helpful Sealink employee. It would be helpful to older people disembarking with luggage to be aware that there is a bit of a hill, and that a bus can be booked for that little distance.

Product: A great day out. Loved it! Just wonder if thought could be given to the Kingscote stop.... We boarded at Penneshaw and I'm not sure if it was a scheduled comfort stop at Kingscote but passengers seemed to go in all directions and took some time in returning. All other stops didn't have this problem. Good commentary and safe driving.

Service: Return service also carried a garbage truck and hundreds of sheep. The ferry absolutely stunk and many people were vomiting. Passengers should not have to pay such high fares when travelling with the stench.

Product: Very entertaining

Response from SeaLink:

Thank you for your feedback regarding your return ferry from Penneshaw. We are sorry that you had an unpleasant journey back to Cape Jervis due to the sheep and garbage truck on-board. You should have been advised at the time of booking that this ferry may have fuel or livestock on-board. If this did not occur, we apologize.

We are however pleased that you were able to enjoy your time on Kangaroo Island.

Thanks and kind regards,
