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.

Excellent trip, could not recommend it higher. Kangaroo Island is a fascinating place with lots to see. The guide was local and very knowledgeable. An extremely good tour.

This was a very full day and long tour even though we returned to Adelaide by plane which I highly recommend. Kangaroo Island was wonderful and we saw a lot of wildlife. There is quite a bit of walking that would be strenuous for people with walking difficulty.

Although a very long day picked up from our hotel @ 6.20am and returned at 10.30pm, it was a very enjoyable day which was thoroughly enhanced by having a very knowledgeable and funny driver / guide in Garry. His ongoing commentary was brilliant and he made everyone feel most welcome on the island as he pointed out the island's highlights and inhabitants. The highlights tour only wet our appetite to return to Kangaroo Island for a more thorough visit which we will do in the near future. A highly recommended tour for anyone visiting Adelaide and South Australia

Sehr schöne Reise, wurden sogar in Glenelg abgeholt! Wie heisst die Insel? Kangaroo Island? Wir haben leider nur 4 Kängurus gesehen, dafür viele Koalas uns Seehunde.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

This trip required an hour long bus trip to the ferry, a ferry ride, transfer to another bus, and then all over again back to our hotel and was worth every minute. The buses were comfortable and the hotel pickup was prompt. Every transfer and aspect of the day was expertly overseen by SeaLink. Our guide for the tour was knowledgeable as he had lived on Kangaroo Island for many years. We saw kangaroos, koalas, and seals. The National Park guide who led us to Seal Bay was informative and loved her job. The lunch provided was good, if not great, but satisfying. Kangaroo Island itself is beautiful and in a 24 day trip, this day was one of our highlights!

Un circuit complet très bien organisé qui permet en une seule journée de découvrir la faune et les plus beaux sites de l'île.
Les différents transits aller et retour et le repas sont parfaits.
