A short flight from Adelaide and the day is yours with kangaroos and koalas, wallabies and wine. Spend two days exploring an island that is teeming with native bushland, wildlife and pristine beaches. On day one, explore a colony of fur seals on a Seal Bay Discovery tour and at the Parndana Wildlife Park you can see, hear and touch native animals and birds. At Clifford’s Honey Farm you can dip your fingers in pure Ligurian bee honey and, at night, join little penguins on their nightly procession from the waters around Kingscote and Penneshaw to their beach burrows.
Hit the wild trail on day two. At the Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery watch how traditional Bush products like solvents and stain removers are made. Walk with wallabies and kangaroos at Flinders Chase National Park, have a picnic in the shade of Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, adding zing with cheese from the Island Pure Sheep Dairy.
Early morning pick up from your Adelaide hotel for a scenic coach trip through the south coast to Cape Jervis. There you will connect with SeaLink's ferry for the 45 minute cruise to Kangaroo Island to meet your tour coach.
Upon arrival on Kangaroo Island if time and weather permits you will get an opportunity to see and walk along one of Kangaroo Island's most picturesque beaches. Your first official stop will be Clifford's Honey Farm to enjoy an informative talk by the beekeeper followed by tastings and an opportunity to sample homemade honey ice-cream and honey beauty products. Then travel onto Vivonne Bay Bistro located on a 260 hectare bush property, for a delicious 2 course lunch.
After lunch visit Seal Bay and enjoy a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger amongst a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian Sea-lions. Your tour will then visit another amazing wildlife attraction, the fascinating Birds of Prey free-flight demonstration, an interactive and educational display of native Australian birds and raptors.
From here you will then travel back to Kingscote to watch the pelican feeding and learn a little about these fascinating and ancient birds. Your coach will return you to your choice of overnight accommodation.
After your morning hotel pick up your second day of touring begins at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, an interesting bush engineered eucalyptus distillery that makes the most of its environmental resources. After testing and tasting the eucalyptus products travel to the centre of Kangaroo Island to the Parndana Wildlife Park, where you can feed Kangaroo Island kangaroos, have your photograph taken with a koala, and take a guided tour of this wildlife and bird park. '
Next, travel to Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary where you will enjoy a scrumptious 2 course lunch before taking the time to look for Koalas nestled up in the eucalypts. There is also the possibility to get up close to kangaroos and wallabies.
Continue to the western part of the Island where Flinders Chase National Park is located. Flinders Chase National Park is one of Australia's largest and earliest conservation parks. One third of Kangaroo Island has never been cleared of natural vegetation and the thick eucalypt scrub is the habitat of many species of wildlife, much of which is uncommon or extinct on the mainland.
After a short stop at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre travelling through the park you will enjoy breathtaking views of its unique trees, plants and coastal scenery. You will be taken to the rugged southern coastline for a walk on Remarkable Rocks and Admiral's Arch. Remarkable Rocks provide great photographic opportunities and stunning sea views. Admiral's Arch boardwalk takes you down a rugged cliff face to reveal this spectacular arch, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful New Zealand fur seals that can be seen swimming and playing in the waves, or resting on the rocks.
