Day 1: Adelaide -- Kangaroo Island (L)
After an early morning start, relax on a scenic coach ride from Adelaide to Cape Jervis on the Fleurieu Peninsula, where you’ll make the 45-minute ferry crossing to Kangaroo Island; all up, the coach and ferry trip to the island takes three hours. If you choose to fly, you'll be picked up from your Adelaide hotel and transferred to the airport for your 30-minute flight to Kangaroo Island.
If time and weather permit, your first stop on Kangaroo Island is a walk on the beach, followed by a visit to Clifford’s Honey Farm to meet the beekeeper and sample the company’s honey ice cream and beauty products.
After a delicious two-course lunch at Vivonne Bay Bistro, set on an expansive bush property, take a guided walk with a national park ranger on the beach at Seal Bay, home to a breeding colony of rare wild sea lions. Next stop is a birds of prey free-flight demonstration featuring Australian eagles and hawks, and pelican feeding on the beach at Kingscote, before being taken to your accommodation for your overnight stay.
Accommodation: Aurora Ozone Hotel in a SeaView room
Day 2: Kangaroo Island -- Adelaide (B, L)
Following breakfast at your accommodation, begin the second day of your Kangaroo Island adventure with a visit to Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, known for its therapeutic and fragrant oils. Then feed kangaroos or have your photo taken with a koala at Parndana Wildlife Park, before enjoying more up-close encounters with Australian native animals at Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
After a tasty two-course lunch at the sanctuary, visit Flinders Chase National Park on the island’s west coast. You’ll drop into the visitor center to hear about the wildlife that lives in this pristine, protected part of the island, and take a scenic drive through the park’s glorious coastal scenery.
Stroll beside Remarkable Rocks and along the Admiral’s Arch boardwalk to spy seals swimming in the waves beneath, before heading to Kingscote Airport if you’ve chosen the flight option or Penneshaw to catch the ferry back to Cape Jervis and coach transfer to Adelaide.

The tour was excellent from start to finish and was a wonderful overview of a superb Island. The very best thing was our driver, Les, he was quite simply OUTSTANDING and you should cherish him!! On all our travels we have never had a more informed, friendly, humerous and talented guide. The hotel we stayed at also added to the great value for money of a well conceived tour. Congratulations Viator!

What a FANTASTIC time! This had to definitely be the highlight of our tour in Australia. We had Liz as a tour guide and we couldn't have asked for a better person! He was funny, nice, thoughtful, and knew the land like the back of his hand! The only thing that I really wish wasn't part of this tour was the Parndana Wildlife Park. The birds had no room to fly, the place was in terrible condition, the koalas only had a stump of a tree and had people poking and prodding them all day long. What a prison for these animals. It was a really sad place to visit and almost all of the other guests on the tour thought the same thing. If you love animals, DO NOT go to this place! Why not have the tour see the penguins instead?? I was really disappointed that this was not part of the tour. Other than that, it was great! I LOVED the sanctuary itself!
