Head to Cape Jervis from Adelaide and sail across Backstairs Passage to set foot on Kangaroo Island. Amazing scenery and an abundance of wildlife await, with a full 2 days to enjoy. Overnight accommodation is comfortable farm stay, watch the kangaroos feed off the lawn if you are lucky. The highlights of this tour are the seals at Seal Bay, the Remarkable Rocks, the Admirals Arch and a night at the Flinders Chase Farm Stay.
Day 1: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
We make our way out of Adelaide through the scenic hills of the Fleurieu Peninsula. When we arrive at Cape Jervis, we board the Sealink ferry across Backstairs Passage (45 minute trip) to Penneshaw, where we meet your local island guide. It's not far to our first stop at Pennington Bay; one of the Island's stunning surf beaches. Get amongst sea lions in their natural habitat on our guided walk at Seal Bay – an experience you won't forget!
Scramble up the white sand hills at Little Sahara and get up close to more wildlife (including koalas) at the Hanson Bay Koala Sanctuary. We arrive at our farm-stay accommodation late in the afternoon. After dinner, get ready to spot kangaroos, wallabies and possums on a guided nocturnal walk. (LD)
Day 2: Kangaroo Island to Adelaide
We spend the morning in Flinders Chase National Park. Clamber on the huge granite outcrops of Remarkable Rocks, sculpted by nature over hundreds of years. A colony of New Zealand fur seals resides at Admirals Arch on Cape du Couedic, watch while they frolic in the ocean or lap up the sunshine!
We'll have lunch at Rocky River Headquarters, where there's time to check out the Information Centre; start point for the Snake Lagoon and Platypus Walks (seasonal choice). After lunch, we travel through the central farming region to the North Coast, visiting Stokes Bay, where a rock runnel leads to an idyllic beach (seasonal). We then return to Penneshaw, with time to purchase dinner (own expense) before returning to the mainland and Adelaide. (BL)
