Day 1: Early morning pick up from your Adelaide hostel for a scenic coach trip to Cape Jervis to connect with SeaLink's ferry for the 45 minute crossing to Kangaroo Island. On arrival in Penneshaw meet your local Driver/Guide. First stop is Rob's Shearing, before heading to Pennington Bay. Continue to Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery before having lunch and visiting Seal Bay. Just down the road from Seal Bay are the white sand dunes of the Little Sahara where some fun is to be had on the sand boards.  Later this afternoon return to your accommodation in Penneshaw and enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner.  In the evening you may like to join a guided Penguin Walk around Hog Bay (additional cost).

Day 2: After breakfast travel to Flinders Chase National Park. At Remarkable Rocks marvel at the huge granite boulders sculptured by nature. Enjoy the spectacular coast and seascapes as you head around to Admirals Arch at Cape Du Couedic where we watch the resident fur seals frolic in the ocean or sunbake on the rocks. After lunch you have an option of several walks before hitting the spectacular North Coast and its many idyllic beaches. Time and weather permitting several stops may be made en route to Penneshaw, allowing time to purchase dinner (own expense) before returning to the mainland and Adelaide.

Please Note: Children 0-14 years are NOT permitted in Dorm Rooms & must be booked into a Private Room with an accompanied adult. 15-17 years can stay in the Dorm but must be accompanied by someone 18+.

Guests travel in small groups on a mid-sized coach for a fun and informal yet informative two days touring on Kangaroo Island.

NOTE (As at 15 Jan 2020):  In light of the recent bushfires, a modified itinerary for Day Two will be in effect until Flinders Chase is open to visitors, and will include the following - KI Wildlife Park, Raptor Domain, Emu Bay Lavender Farm, Pennington Bay and Prospect Hill.
