Luxury Kangaroo Island Experience

4 Day Island Retreat

Overview

Kangaroo Island is a large Island located off the coast of South Australia. Whether you’re interested in wildlife, photography, food and 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.

Itinerary

Day 1: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
Depart Adelaide on a short flight to Kangaroo Island. On arrival you will be met and transferred to Oceanview Eco Villas for 3 nights including breakfast and dinner daily. Afternoon at leisure to relax.

Oceanview Eco Villas: Oceanview Eco Villas comprise of two contemporary luxury villas, each of which are two bedroom/two bathroom and feature private baths with windows opening up to the ocean. Floor plans are mirrored either side of the central open-plan living area comprising a common dining and lounge area. Oceanview is family-run and guests have access to the private beach and farmland which is run as a sheep-grazing property and has retained a significant amount of wildlife habitat ensuring plenty of views of animals particularly in the evening. Located only minutes from American River, Oceanview is completely self- sustaining in terms of rainwater harvesting and renewable power is a hybrid system of wind and solar. The property offers local ingredients on the menu and the wine list features the best of Kangaroo Island and South Australian wines.

Day 2: Full Day Island Life Tour
Welcome to Island life – where things take time, drivers wave as they go by – or even stop for a chat. Have a cuppa with some home-made treats before taking a walk down a country track through tall Eucalyptus trees where koalas snooze overhead or wake briefly for a feed. Listen for the sounds of the bush – brightly coloured honeyeaters and brilliant parrots, cicadas or perhaps just the sound of silence. Travel through the Island’s most productive country to the north coast. Walk through the bush with your guide – through strangely shaped trees learning what makes that noise, whose tracks are those, and who left THAT little pile there? Look for small wallabies almost extinct on the mainland, a kangaroo found only on Kangaroo Island and a variety of other birds, plants and animals. Break for lunch at a private bush camp and enjoy a delicious meal featuring King George whiting (local sea fish), fresh salads and fine South Australian wines. At Seal Bay Conservation Park take a private tour with your guide among Australian sea-lions on a beautiful sandy beach – an experience similar to that of the Galapagos. Watch pups nursing or playing in the surf, see old bulls bearing the scars of territorial disputes and learn about their unique breeding biology. Return to the hotel for dinner and overnight

Optional upgrade to a private tour – $460 per person

Day 3: Flinders Chase Focus
Begin the day in the island’s north-west in an important private wildlife refuge with Kangaroo Island Land for Wildlife. Check out wildlife surveys targeting tiny endangered mammals and get an introduction to the bush, so the fire ecology experienced later in the day has context. Break for an elegant picnic lunch in the bush, featuring marinated poached chicken, fresh salads, cheeses and fantastic South Australian wine, beer, soft drinks and spring water. After lunch, travel into Flinders Chase National Park and explore the massive shapes of Remarkable Rocks, a natural sculpture perched impossibly on top of a dome of granite emerging from the ocean. Evidence of the power of the Southern Ocean swell continues at Admirals Arch – a coastal grotto which provides a haul out for a large colony of Long-nosed fur seals who swim effortlessly through the crashing waves.

Optional upgrade to a private tour – $460 per person

Day 4:
At leisure then transfer to the airport for your flight back to Adelaide.
