Day 1 – Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
Traveling through the Fleurieu Peninsula and arriving at Cape Jervis you board the SeaLink ferry to cross the Backstairs Passage (45 minute trip) to Penneshaw. If you are luck you will see an escort of local dolphins that can be viewed from the dolphin deck on the vessel.
Your first stop is Rob's Shearing, where you will view and learn how to shear a sheep. Travel to Pennington Bay, one of the Island's stunning beaches or Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery before having lunch and visiting Seal Bay. At Seal Bay there is a guided walk along the beach amongst the Sea Lions. The tour will then travel to the white sand dunes of the Little Sahara and you have the opportunity to have some fun on the sand boards and toboggans before arriving at your exclusive accommodation at Vivonne Bay Eco-Adventures.
Here you have the chance to spend some free time kayaking on the Harriet River or boogie boarding and surfing (included). As an alternative option, you can have a swim or snorkel, take a self-guided walk along the property's tracks, go trail bike riding or simply kick back on the best beach in Australia. There are plenty of complimentary activities to keep you occupied before and after your BBQ dinner. When dusk falls you can take part in a nocturnal wildlife guided walk.
Day 2 – Kangaroo Island to Adelaide
On your way to Flinders Chase National Park, get up close to more wildlife at Hanson Bay Koala sanctuary. You arrive at Remarkable Rocks ahead of the crowds to climb over and marvel at the rugged scenic coast and seascapes. We head around to Admirals Arch at Cape Du Couedic where we watch the resident fur seals frolic in the ocean or sun bake on the rocks. After lunch at the Rocky River Visitors Centre, you have the option of several walks (seasonal choice/guide discretion) before going to the spectacular North Coast and its many idyllic beaches (seasonal). If time and weather permits, several stops may be made en route to Penneshaw where you can purchase dinner before your departure back to Adelaide.
