Check out the itinerary for the Wilderness outdoor tour in Kangaroo Island:

DAY 1 Wilderness Wildlife
Guests are picked up from the airport or accommodation. Then, off to Seal Bay Conservation Park. Learn how the Australian sea-lion survives the rigours of the Southern Ocean. The colony of bulls, cows and pups rests on the beach where you can walk amongst them.

Journey further south and enjoy a pleasant, easy walk through the bush and come out at the base of KI’s spectacular and vast sand dunes of Little Sahara. Climb the dunes and enjoy stunning views of distant Bays and the serene, rural landscape. Fascinate in the wonder of its formation. From the South Coast, traverse the rural areas of the middle of the Island via the Parndana Wildlife Park. This park was set up as an ‘animal refuge’, where sick, injured, orphaned or unwanted animals could find a home. Marvel at the colours of the Australian Birds here, pat a Koala and feed a Kangaroo!

Lunch today is a picnic of marinated Chicken breast, fresh salads, tangy Lemon Tart, complimented again by the above beverages. The north coast beaches of Snellings and Stokes Bay are perfect for a leisurely stroll. Enjoy the sound of waves breaking on the pristine sandy coast, or if the weather allows, go for a swim in some of the clearest water you will ever experience. Later in the day enjoy a nature walk through the drooping she-oaks of Lathami National Park and observe the kangaroos and wallabies. This is also the habitat of the rare Glossy Black Cockatoo, and great country for the elusive echidna (spiny anteater).

The first day’s touring concludes with your return to your Island accommodation.

DAY 2 Wilderness Wildscapes
Guests are escorted to Rocky River, headquarters of the Flinders Chase National Park. Here, kangaroos laze and Cape Barren geese graze. The Chase is home to all our varieties of native animals and birds. On to Admirals Arch, ancient limestone formations close to the ocean, a perfect haul-out area for an active colony of the New Zealand fur seal. From here you are carried into Remarkable Rocks; via the spectacular coastline Cape du Couedic, where the forces of nature have carved modern sculptures out of the granite. Then take a short bush walk searching for the Echidna (spiny ant-eater) and observing the colourful Kangaroo Island endemic Crimson Rosella.

Head back for a BBQ lunch of marinated steak, onions and potatoes, cooked in front of you by your guide. This is complimented by fresh salads, local wines and other refreshments. For dessert spoil yourself by indulging in our special Pears poached in KI red wine, accompanied by KI’s unique Sheep’s Milk Yogurt. All this served in the bush, nestled amongst the beautiful tall Gum trees.

After dining, head for Koala Avenue just outside the Park where Koalas are easily seen in the ‘Manna Gums’ that grow in the area. Your guide will then take you down a bush lined track and into ‘Grassdale’, part of the Kelly Hill Conservation Park. Here you will enjoy viewing the large ‘mob’ of Kangaroo’s that graze the grassy flats and shelter in the surrounding bush. Also listen for the many parrots and other bird species that live in the tall gum trees. Wander through some of the old relics that speak of a bye-gone era of early pioneer farming. Head for Vivonne Bay, with its crystal clear turquoise water; your guide will take you to Point Ellen where you can fossick for shells on the beach and possibly sight a penguin in its rookery

The outdoor tour concludes with your departure at the airport, or return to your Island accommodation.
