Kangaroo Island 1 night
Day 1 Adelaide/Kangaroo Island: Early morning departure through the south coast, taking in the Fleurieu Peninsula, to Cape Jervis for the 45 minute cruise to Kangaroo Island. On arrival, board the coach and your first visit is to the Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery where you will listen to an introduction talk about the history of the oil distillery and take a guided tour. Continue onto Vivonne Bay Bistro for a delicious two course lunch. Afterwards, visit Seal Bay Conservation Park for a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger amongst a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian sea lions. Continue to the fascinating in-flight birds of prey display at Raptor Domain for a delightful interactive experience with an array of birds and raptors. From here, you will travel to Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park for the chance to get up close with koalas, see penguins swim and play, hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, learn about endangered species, interact with snakes, crocodiles and reptiles.
Day 2 Kangaroo Island/Adelaide: After breakfast drive to Clifford's Honey Farm for an informative talk by the beekeeper followed by tastings and opportunity to sample homemade honey ice-cream and honey beauty products. After lunch at Hanson Bay Visitor Centre look for koalas nestled up in the eucalyptus and see an abundance of native birdlife in the wildlife sanctuary. Later, travel to the western most part of the island, Flinders Chase National Park, one of Australia's largest and earliest conservation parks. Travel through the park and enjoy breathtaking views of its unique trees, plants and coastal scenery. You will then be taken to the rugged southern coastline for a walk around Remarkable Rocks and on Admiral's Arch boardwalk, which takes you down a rugged cliff face to reveal a natural nursery and safe haven for playful New Zealand fur seals.
