Our tour starts when we pick you up from Adelaide, and drive towards Kangaroo Island, via the Fleurieu Peninsula, experiencing some fantastic coastal views. We arrive at Cape Jervis, and jump on the ferry as we cross the Backstairs Passage, to Penneshaw on the island. From there we start our Kangaroo Island experience with panoramic views atop Prospect Hill.
Our days of action, wildlife and wilderness include up close encounters with sea lions on a beach walk at Seal Bay, sand-boarding at the Little Sahara, kayaking down Harriet River, snorkelling and swimming at beautiful North Coast beaches and optional quad biking around the bush at sunset.
Overnight is spent at our farm house accommodation, surrounded by koalas, kangaroos, possums and the occasional echidna. After dinner, whether an Aussie BBQ feast or some other “tour specialty”, we spend the night around the campfire, story telling, wildlife spotting and playing the didgeridoo. You will sleep inside in bunk beds, with all bedding provided.
We check out the famous Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, where we view a colony of New Zealand Fur Seals. We spend time in the Flinders Chase National Park, the largest on the island, where we choose a selection of short hikes. Flinders Chase is home to vast tracts of untamed wilderness, the elusive platypus and heaps of other wildlife, which we’ll do our best to see.
At the end of the day we make our way back to Penneshaw, for the return crossing to Cape Jervis and the drive back into Adelaide, usually arriving at about 8.30pm.
