What You Can Expect

2-Day Kangaroo Island Tour from Adelaide

Seal Bay

With two days to explore Kangaroo Island, you’ll travel around the island and enjoy several wildlife encounters including Seal Bay, Cliffords Honey Farm, Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. You’ll stay the night in a sea-view room, and your accommodation includes a full cooked breakfast.

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 Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, before enjoying more up-close encounters with Australian native animals at Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

Enjoy a 2-course lunch at the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat before continuing on to 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.

A highly recommended tour. The guide Glen Wilson was a local KI and he knew the place in and out. Ask anything and you had an answer for it. A breathtaking place to get lost for eternity. Only felt 2 days was far less. Also felt the eucalyptus tour could be replaced with something related to farming. A must do tour for all the holiday enthusiast.

Best of my three week stay in Australia. Lunch on one day was very iffy only could pick from two a Caesar salad or calamari and I dont eat either. Definitely thought a more normal lunch would be provided. But with that aside everything about this trip was wonderful. Watching the Seaguls being fed was really neat. Everything from our guide to Seal Bay to the spectacular birds of prey could not have been better. Well worth the trip.

We did the tour in late November and the weather was lovely--not too hot. There were 40-50 people on the tour and that seemed like a manageable number. We never had to wait for anyone to get back on the bus and we kept on schedule. The activities/sites that were chosen for us were great. We liked visiting with the owners of the bee farm and the eucalyptus distillery and sampling/buying their wares. We especially enjoyed the wildlife portions of the tour. The lunches were delicious and the lodging was nice. Our tour bus driver told us all about Kangaroo Island and answered all our questions. The pick up from the hotel and delivery to and from the airport was so easy and convenient.

At the beginning there was a mix up with the pick-up point in Adelaide causing some fraught moments and a rather disgruntled, though very polite, driver.
Thereafter the tour was the highlight of our trip to Australia, with many sights, animals and good food and accommodation. Overall, excellent.

We really enjoyed this excursion. It was a rather early start but that meant we had a full day on the island even after a long drive and ferry crossing. The bus driver and guide was excellent. The tour made the most of the features of the island and it was particularly exciting to see the wild life. We were glad we flew home and arrived in Adelaide a bit early than the bus as a result.
