What You Can Expect

Kangaroo Island in a Day Tour from Adelaide

Remarkable Rocks, Kangaroo Island

When booking this Kangaroo Island tour, you have four choices for transportation to suit your interest and budget. You can travel both to and from the island by ferry, travel to and from the island by plane, or mix it up to enjoy both experiences with one way by ferry and the other by plane, or vice versa.

If you’re starting by ferry, your day trip begins with pickup in Adelaide by coach for the 90-minute drive with your guide across the Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis, where you’ll catch the ferry for a 45-minute cruise across Backstairs Passage to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Upon arrival, board another coach for your tour of the island. If you’re starting by plane, land at the island’s Kingscote Airport, where you’ll be met by the coach.

Then begin your Kangaroo Island experience at Seal Bay Conservation Park to witness Australian sea lions lazing on the beach; take a coastal walk with a National Parks ranger for an up-close look at the colony. Continue to Vivonne Bay for a 2-course lunch at Vivonne Bay Bistro, where picture windows and a deck provide opportunities to watch for koalas and kangaroos in the surrounding bush.

After lunch, visit Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, where kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas roam free and koalas stay lazy in their eucalyptus groves, and then head to Flinders Chase National Park on the rugged southwest coast of the island to walk among the granite boulders known as the Remarkable Rocks. See the rock archway known as Admirals Arch, admire Cape du Couedic and watch long-nosed fur seals as they play and relax.

Throughout your tour, hear about the history of Kangaroo Island and learn interesting facts about the animals from your knowledgeable guide. When your time on the island is up, head back to the ferry landing or the airport, watching for more kangaroos along the way, for your ferry ride or flight back to the mainland.

This tour was ... visiting a little piece of unspoiled ecology on earth. Amazing flora and fauna!
We watched sea lions roaming around, koalas in their natural habitat and kangaroos jumping around. ... all.against the backdrop of the majesty of the surf and the soothing sounds of the ocean

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Once in a lifetime way to see seal beach, koalas, and remarkable rocks. Lunch was just ok. Tour was 50 people that day.

Did the fly in/fly out same day. The pickup was a little too early for my taste which left me at the gate for more than an hour before flying, but it was great to be done with the tour by 6:00 and back at the hotel having dinner at 7:00. I'm not a fan of small, propeller planes, but REX Express was more than fine and professional for the short 30 minute flight over.

We had a wonderful full and interesting full day
We chose to fly over in the morning rather than go by ferry. A little extra cost butt well worth it as it was a later start to the day. We were also able to spend time at the eucalyptus centre which is not possible if you start the day by ferry due to lack of time.
Our guide was excellent and the only disappointing aspect was the wildlife park where there was very little wildlife out during the day but did see 1 or 2 kangaroos
All in all we'd certainly recommend this day visit to Kangaroo Island
