Kangaroo Island Hire a Guide 4WD Nocturnal Tour

4WD Nocturnal Wildlife Tours

$85 per child

Discover the very best this undisturbed path of Australia has to offer. KI Hire A Guide's personalised 4WD Nocturnal Tours get you out and about around twilight, sunset and immediately after, giving you an unforgettable look some of our state’s most exotic and beautiful animals. Available at one of the best prices on the island, you’ll never forget an evening with KI Hire A Guide.

​Run by experienced guides who live locally and know the area, you’ll love experiencing the sights and sounds of Kangaroo Island after dark. The drop in air temperature and light means the island buzzes with activity as day gives way to night. See how this 155km long island transforms as the sun goes down and the 'local nightlife' warms up.

​This tour gives you the chance to see the more elusive and furtive animals that call the island home, including Stone Curlews, Boobook Owls, Brush-tailed Possums and maybe even an Echidna. Spot Western Grey Kangaroos grazing in open grasslands, or discover Tammar Wallabies hiding in the shrub lands or amongst the undergrowth.

​Our group can even head over to the Kingscote coastline for the chance of seeing the adorable wild Fairy Penguins. Your wilderness tour guide will help you make the most of every minute you spend in the twilight of this island paradise, and our goal is always to give you the very best experience possible.
