Take the time to explore Kangaroo Island, one of Australia’s finest nature-based tourism destinations and one of Australia’s National Landscapes.

DAY 1

Visit Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery where you will learn about the history of the oil distillery, and take a guided tour and stay for a delicious lunch amongst the gum trees.

After lunch visit Seal Bay Conservation Park and walk amongst Australian sea lions on a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger. Continue onto the fascinating In-flight Birds of Prey Display at Raptor Domain where you can meet an array of Australian birds and raptors. 

From here, travel to Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park where you can get up close with Koalas, see Penguins swim and play, hand feed Kangaroos and Wallabies, learn about endangered species, interact with Snakes, Crocodiles and Reptiles and experience Kangaroo Island Wildlife at your fingertips! You will then be transferred back to your chosen overnight accommodation for a good nights' sleep.

DAY 2

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.

Enjoy a two-course lunch and then 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.

Service: My husband and I made our booking online for a package that included ferry to Kangaroo Island, accommodation, flight back to Adelaide and pick-up by SmartCar back to our hotel in Adelaide. We got a clear write-up for each item with the Tax Invoice, and everything went very smoothly as planned. All the Staff involved were courteous, efficient and professional.

The accommodation arranged for us at the Kingscote Seaside Inn with breakfast included was great. The island tours gave us a fairly good idea of the Island as a whole, were pleasant and comfortable and value for money.

Even at the end of this trip, when the plane back to Adelaide was delayed (through no fault of Sealink), the SmartCar pickup was re-arranged for us and we highly commend the SmartCar driver, Robin.

Service: The driver-tour guide was excellent. Kevin's knowledge and love of Kangaroo Island added to the enjoyment of the 2 day tour. I booked, by phone from Sydney myself and chose a room with a sea view. I was very distressed to find that, in the dark following a long travelling in inclement weather, that the motel was a long way from the township, and did not serve an evening meal. Fortunately, the owner offered to drive the 4 guests into town to have a meal, and then collect afterwards. During the crossing to Kangaroo Island I was able to look at one of your brochures which set out that you collected from the Cancer Council Motel. I was staying next door at the CWA accommodation and was told I had to catch a taxi to be at the city collection hotel by 6.10 am for a 6.20 start. The driver, on my return from the 2 day tour very kindly dropped me at the Cancer Council Motel at 10.00pm.
Product: Felt that $700+ was a little on the high side for a 2 day trip, but as I did not individually cost the trip, I should not comment. It is always more expensive to travel as a single person. Kangaroo Island was on my 'bucket list' so am very pleased that I have now visited the island.

Service: The two day tour was great all the staff were very friendly. Mick our bus driver was exceptional & went the extra mile.
Product: I would have rated 5 star only for one problem. Everything on Kangaroo Island was exceptional but our journey back fo Adelaide from Cape Jarvis was not good. We had no choice but to sit in the back lower seat in the mini van and what a hell of a bumpy & noisey ride. To end our wonderful two day tour this way was disappointing.

The whole experience ran smoothly: from the early morning pick up; the transfer to the ferry; coach waiting at Penneshaw/return etc.
This experience was made so enjoyable especially by the careful driver, Albie, who was also our tour guide. He was knowledgeable; had a well modulated voice; polite; did not favour any particular passengers. In fact if he had offered a trip around Australia, I would have booked it!
The venues chosen for lunch were excellent; enjoyed being in the "bush" setting for lunch where the avenue of gum trees housed koalas in their natural habitat.
Was not impressed with the breakfast at Ozone?

Service: The booking service was very user friendly and despite hiccups with my computer receiving Sealink's emails, the staff were very obliging and patient with me. I travelled to KI with three friends and we all agreed what a fun time we had. The coach driver, Kevin, was well-informed and communicated his knowledge of the island very well. It was a pleasure to have him as our coach driver the the 2 days of the tour. The only negative was on the return trip to Adelaide's CBD where all other passengers were delivered to their hotel but as out accommodation was in Kent Town, the driver would not take us (4 senior/elderly ladies) there.
Product: It was good value for the 2 day tour and the one night's accommodation at the Ozone Hotel, Kingscote was of a reasonable standard

Service: Absolutely everything, professionally done, organized, knowledgeable,
Service was above and beyond our expectations.
Will definitely recommend to everyone that I know. And hope to require your services in the future.
Recommend that all - day tours have a toilet on board . From conversations that I have had with a lot of people ( younger,older & elderly ) it’s a deterrent. In the long run I think that it would be beneficial to your business.
This was written by one of Jan’s travelers Harold Wurst.

We enjoyed our two-days trip very much. We had an opportunity to come quite close to the seals and spotted Koala, kangaroos and echidna living in their natural habitats. The arrangement of the whole tour was smooth. Our guide Jacquelyn is very professional, we learnt a lot from her about the plants and animals on the Island. She took good care of everyone in the group. The package is a bit expensive but we considered it worth the money.
