6 Day Hahndorf, McLaren Vale & Kangaroo Island Self Drive
Experience Kangaroo Island at your own pace, the scenic McLaren Vale region and accommodation in Adelaide and Hahndorf over six days on this self-drive package.
Day 1: Arrive into Adelaide and pick up your hire car from the Airport (or bring your own car). Spend the night in Adelaide and discover the sights of the city including the North Terrace Precinct, Rundle Mall shopping and the very popular Adelaide Central Markets.
Day 2: Travel to the picturesque Adelaide Hills, a region that produces some of the finest cool climate wines in Australia. Be sure to stop off at Mount Lofty Summit for spectacular views over Adelaide. Take time to explore the historic German town of Hahndorf with its many shops, restaurants and galleries located along the tree-lined street.
Day 3 & 4: Take in the Fleurieu Peninsula as you pass through the scenic Adelaide Hills region to Cape Jervis and join the SeaLink ferry service to Kangaroo Island. Kangaroo Island is over 155km in length and 55km wide and is Australia’s third largest Island.
With this package, you will have the opportunity to take in the spectacular coastal scenery, scenic landscapes and fantastic National Parks. Whilst Kangaroo Island is much celebrated for its wildlife, its food and wine are integral parts of the Kangaroo Island experience. Try sheep’s cheese and yoghurt along with a generous dollop of organic honey from the Island’s famous Ligurian Bee. Enjoy some of Kangaroo Island’s fine, home grown and award-winning wines and even some spirits from a boutique distillery. Sample some of Kangaroo Island’s freshwater crayfish – the Marron or savour the famous King George Whiting. There is nothing wild or untamed about the Island’s food and wines!
You can swim with dolphins or enjoy sailing, swimming, snorkelling, surfing and scuba-diving too. If you’d rather keep your feet on terra firma, then there’s caving, bushwalking, quad biking and sandboarding at Little Sahara. See the wonders of this great Island such as the Seal Bay Conservation Park where you will be taken on a beach walk tour with an experienced guide to be amongst a colony of rare and wild Australian sea lions – a truly amazing and unforgettable experience (activities and tours not included).
Visit Flinders Chase National Park, a sanctuary for native Australian wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and echidnas. Get some awesome photo opportunities at Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful Long-nosed Fur Seals that can be seen resting, swimming and playing in the waves or on the rocks (entry fee into the Flinders Chase National Park is an additional cost).
Day 5: Return on the ferry to Cape Jervis and travel to McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula for your final night. Take time to discover the many cellar doors and sample some local produce that the region is famous for, including Wirra Wirra Vineyards and d’Aranberg Winery.
Day 6: Spend the day further exploring the McLaren Vale region before returning your vehicle in Adelaide for your departure home.
