Kangaroo Island Experience
4 Day Island Retreat
Kangaroo Island is a large Island located off the coast of South Australia. Whether you’re interested in wildlife, photography, food & wine, the local art scene, celebrating a honeymoon or bringing the family, there is something for everybody. Kangaroo Island is a wildlife hotspot. Despite a strong agricultural industry, over one third of the land is protected across 30 National and Conservation parks. This provides a fantastic habitat for a huge range of wildlife species, with some now endemic to the Island.
Day 1: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
Early departure from Adelaide and transfer to Cape Jervis (2 hours). On arrival board your Ferry Service to Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island. You will be met and transferred to the Aurora Ozone Hotel for three nights in a Executive Sea View Room including breakfast. The hotel is perfectly situated on the beautiful foreshore at Kingscote, and is within walking distance to the main street and features its own restaurant and bar overlooking the sea. Afternoon at leisure to relax or explore.
Day 2: Kangaroo Island (BL)
Depart on a full day guided tour to see the highlights of Kangaroo Island. Take a guided walk on the beach among a colony of rare and wild Australian sea lions with a National Parks Ranger at Seal Bay Conservation Park. Get up close and see these wild creatures frolic and laze about – a truly amazing and unforgettable experience. Then enjoy a delicious two course lunch at Vivonne Bay Bistro, located on the south coast of Kangaroo Island. Then onto Flinders Chase National Park, as you travel through the park, keep an eye out for echidnas, wallabies, reptiles, and koalas. See the rugged coastline from walks around Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. Remarkable Rocks provide great photographic opportunities, and the Admirals Arch boardwalk takes you down a rugged cliff face to reveal the spectacular rock archway, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful Long-nosed Fur Seals. Your last visit of the day is to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park to feed some kangaroos and get up close to the Kangaroo Island Koalas while listening to the Keeper talk about the cuddly mammals. There may be a photo opportunity to hold a koala, if time permits (additional cost). There is also a possibility that you will see more kangaroos and wallabies. Return to the hotel for overnight.
Day 3: Kangaroo Island (BL)
Depart this morning on a full day Kangaroo Island Sip and See Tour. Aside from the amazing wildlife, Kangaroo Island is also well known for its thriving food and wine industry. Your local guide will introduce you to some of the island’s leading producers, where you’ll have the chance to find out about their products, history and sample their range. On this tour you’ll visit the incredible Raptor Domain for the exciting and educational “In-Flight” Birds of Prey display.
