Kangaroo Island 2 nights
Day 1 Adelaide/Kangaroo Island: Collect your car and drive to Cape Jervis for the 45 minute ferry journey to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. The island is a pristine wilderness with soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes, wetlands and massive arcs of white sandy beaches. It’s also where sea lions bask on the beach, koalas doze in lofty eucalyptus and pelicans fly over shimmering lagoons.
Day 2 Kangaroo Island: A full day to explore at your leisure (or if you opt to stay at Southern Ocean Lodge, you will have a choice of signature experiences). Highlights include Flinders Chase National Park, where you can view Admiral’s Arch and the Remarkable Rocks; Seal Bay for an unforgettable wildlife experience; Hawson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary; book a tour in search of dolphins and be sure to allow ample time to savour some of the island’s fine gourmet cuisine, whether at one of the many restaurants, cafés, cellar doors or at a farmers market. Lovers of the past will find a rich history with a multitude of stories to be discovered across the many galleries, museums and collections on the island.
Day 3 Kangaroo Island/Adelaide: Enjoy some final sightseeing before the return ferry to the mainland. Your tour concludes as you return your car in Adelaide or, why not carry on down the Great Ocean Road?
