Is this trip right for you?
This trip is made up of two seperate tours and you'll be traveling with a different Guide on each Kangaroo Island and the Great Ocean Road. Each Guide specialises in their region of touring
The Kangaroo Island portion of the trip are two full days of touring. Whilst there isn't too much physical exertion, there are early starts and arrival back into Adelaide on the second day is late in the evening around 10:30pm.


Day 1: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
Adelaides one of those cities that has a little bit of something for everyone: award-winning gardens, 19th century churches, fresh seafood and enough good wines and wine bars to send a sommelier giddy. Think about arriving in town a day or two before kick-off to see everything Adelaide has to offer. Weve got an early start this morning from your Adelaide or Glenelg accommodation (selected hotels/hostels), before travelling along the picture-perfect Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis for the 45-minute SeaLink ferry ride to Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island. While crossing the water, look out over the side of the boat its no unusual to be joined by a few dolphins along for the ride. Touch down on the island then make your first stop at Rob's Shearing and Sheepdogs to see firsthand a very Aussie occupation sheep shearing. Continue on to Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery the only commercial distillery of the infinitely useful eucalyptus oil in South Australia. Next up is the Seal Bay Conservation Park, where youll have the chance to see rare Australian Sea-lions up close in a wild breeding colony. From the sea to the desert head to the white sand dunes of the Little Sahara and give sand boarding a shot, before arriving at our exclusive accommodation in Vivonne Bay Lodge. Youll then have a spot of free time for kayaking on the Harriet River, taking a walk along one of the propertys tracks, hopping on a bike, dipping in for a swim, or just kicking back on Vivonne Bay beach. Youll spend the night in eight-person dormitory rooms with shared bathrooms (bed linen provided).

Note: The coach transfer from Adelaide to the ferry is approximately 1.5 hours, with a sailing time of 45 minutes. On the Island, you will spend approximately 2 hours in the vehicle with frequent sightseeing. Walking and active time will depend on which optional activities you choose in the afternoon..

Next up its Flinders Chase National Park, where youll find a collection of boulders that really live up to their name the Remarkable Rocks. Youll arrive ahead of the crowds that come to see this signature sight of giant weathered stones that guard the view over Kirkpatrick Point. Ramble across the rocky coastline, admire the seascapes, then stop in at Admirals Arch on Cape Du Couedic to see the resident fur seals frolicking in the ocean or basking on the rocks. Depending on the time and weather, make a few stops en route to Penneshaw, where you can purchase dinner (own expense) before our arrival back in Adelaide where you will be dropped at the Adelaide Central Bus Station, a short walk to the Adelaide Central YHA where you will be staying this evening.
