Detailed Itinerary
Day 1
Depart Adelaide and enjoy a scenic coach trip through the Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis, where you’ll board the SeaLink ferry for a 45-minute journey to Kangaroo Island. On arrival in Penneshaw you’ll meet your local driver/guide.

The first stop is Rob's Shearing & Sheepdogs, where you’ll watch a sheep-shearing demonstration by a real Aussie character before heading to Pennington Bay, the site of a spectacular beach and a great photo opportunity.

Continue to Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, the only commercial eucalyptus distillery in South Australia, and then visit Seal Bay to get up close to a wild breeding colony of rare Australian sea lions. Later, at Little Sahara you’ll explore the huge white sand dunes and test your skills at sand boarding.

Return to your overnight accommodation and enjoy a tasty BBQ dinner.

Day 2
After breakfast continue to Flinders Chase National Park and marvel at the Remarkable Rocks – huge granite boulders sculpted by nature.

Take in the spectacular coast and seascapes as you head to Admirals Arch at Cape Du Couedic, where you'll watch the resident long-nosed fur seals frolic in the ocean or sunbathe on the rocks. 

Enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch and head to the secluded beach at Stokes Bay and enjoy a walk at Ironstone Hill (time permitting). Be on the lookout for wallabies and admire the spectacular views of the mainland.

If time and weather permit, several stops can be made en route to Penneshaw, allowing time for dinner (at your own expense) before the return journey to Adelaide.
