• 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.

 

Uluru-Ayers-Rock

 

Day 1: Alice Springs/Kata Tjuta/Uluru (Ayers Rock)
First stop for the day is a working camel farm. Here you'll have the chance to hop atop one of these iconic Arabian creatures for a glimpse of how Australia would have looked through the eyes of early explorers. Yep, much of Australia's interior was first chartered with the use of camels. Enjoy lunch, then drive on to the giant red rock domes of Kata Tjuta. Late afternoon we head to Uluru, where dinner, sunset and a glass of bubbles await. Total driving time today is around 4.5 hours. Total walking time is approximately 1 hour. (L/D)

 

Day 2: Uluru sunrise
Rise and shine folks, you won't want to miss this sunrise. After watching the world's biggest rock gain its colour, set out for a walk around its base. When you get back there'll be the opportunity to learn about Uluru's local legendry on a cultural interpretative walk led by an indigenous guide. You might also want to check out the traditional arts and crafts on display in the on-site Cultural Centre. Tonight we camp out in Watarrka National Park - in an exclusive campsite, no less. Total driving time today is around 3.5 hours. Total walking time is approximately 2 hours. (B/L/D)

Day 3: Kings Canyon rim walk
If one were to build a canyon fit for a king, Kings Canyon would be it. As Ernest Giles, the first European to enter the place asserted, if Kings were transported to any civilized land its 'Springs, glens, gorges, ferns, zamias and flowers would charm the eyes and hearts of toil-worn men who are condemned to live and die in crowded towns.' During your time here we'll get you to the Amphitheatre, the Lost City, the Garden of Eden and the North and South walls. Then it's on to Erldunda for another night's camping. Total driving time today is around 3 hours. Total walking time is approximately 2.5 hours. (B/L/D)

Kings canyon rim walk

Day 4: Coober Pedy
Southbound we go, over the state border and into South Australia. Lunch today is in the tiny town of Marla - population 72 - and then it's on to Coober Pedy. While outwardly a little nondescript, this dusty desert outpost is the world's opal capital. It's also where Max Max: Beyond Thunderdome was filmed. Cool. Due to the region's intense heat, most of the town here is underground. You'll be taken through the main attractions on a guided tour and then meet the world's cutest orphans at Josephine's Gallery and Kangaroo Orphanage. In keeping with the local way of doing things, we'll be spending tonight underground. Also cool. And cooling. Total driving time today is around 4.5 hours. Total walking time is approximately half an hour. (B/L/D)

The Breakaways Conservation Park is a protected area in Northern South Australia, just off the Stuart Highway 33 km (21 mi) north of Coober Pedy.

Day 5: Quorn
The populations just keep getting smaller as we make our way south along the Sturt Highway: Glendambo, the day's first stop, has 30 residents (and 22,500 sheep). Central Australia's salt lakes make for another interesting pass-by, as does the military weapons testing site of Woomera. We're not allowed to visit here - presumably because it harbours top-secret military hardware or something - but this is your best chance of seeing Australia launch a satellite. Following lunch, we arrive in Port Augusta and carry on over the Pichi Richi Pass into Quorn, a sweet little historical railway township at the entrance to Richman Valley. Total driving time today is around 6 hours. Total walking time is approximately half an hour. (B/L/D)

 

Day 6: Adelaide
Get the day underway with a morning hike up the Flinders Ranges. Roos, wallabies, emus, goannas, wedge-tailed eagles and more call these Ranges home, so keep your eyes peeled and be vewy, vewy quiet… The final leg of the journey rolls through the lush, rolling hills of Clare Valley. This is wine country. And it's mighty pretty. The adventure wraps up on arrival in Adelaide. Total driving time today is around 3.5 hours. Total walking time is approximately 2 hours. (B/L)

 

Day 7: Adelaide
Enjoy a free day in Adelaide, 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. Discover the vibrant, eclectic, modern side of this city, with an emerging art and theatre scene to rival anything you'll find in Melbourne or Sydney. Hit Henley Beach, explore the nearby Barossa Valley, relax by the River Torrens, pick up some chocs at the Haigh's Factory, experience some Teutonic charm in the German neighborhood of Hahandorf, or just indulge in the world class food and coffee.

Day 8: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
This morning you'll need to make your way to the Adelaide Central Bus Station, 85 Franklin Street (Inside at the SeaLink check-in counter) at 6.45am. You'll be travelling by coach along the picture-perfect Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis for the 45-minute SeaLink ferry ride to Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island. While crossing, it is not uncommon to have an escort of local dolphins that can be viewed from the dolphin deck on the boat. Stop in at Rob's Shearing and Sheepdogs to witness sheep being shorn, then continue to Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery - the only commercial eucalyptus distillery in South Australia. Next up is a visit to the Seal Bay Conservation Park, where you'll have the opportunity to see rare Australian Sea-lions up close in a wild breeding colony. Travelling on to the white sand dunes of the Little Sahara, give sand boarding a shot before arriving at our exclusive accommodation in Vivonne Bay Lodge. Enjoy some free time to kayak on the Harriet River, go for a self-guided walk along the property's tracks, head out trail bike riding or swimming, or simply kick back along Vivonne Bay Beach. The locals will come to greet you in the evening, and by locals we mean the Kangaroos that give this incredible Island it's name. 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. (L/D)

Day 9: Kangaroo Island sightseeing, and return to Adelaide
After breakfast, pop into the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary for a walk among eucalyptus trees in search of lazing koalas. Next, continue on to Flinders Chase National Park, arriving at iconic Remarkable Rocks ahead of the crowds. Ramble across its craggy coastline, marvel at its dramatic seascapes, and 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. If time and weather permits, several stops may be made en route to Penneshaw, where you can purchase dinner (own expense) before our arrival back in Adelaide at the Central Bus Station, a short walk from the Adelaide Central YHA where you will stay tonight. (B/L)

Note: Driving time whilst on the Island will be the majority of the day, with constant stops for sightseeing. The ferry Journey is approximately 45 minutes back to the mainland with a journey of 1.5 hours back to central Adelaide. Arrival time will be approximately 10:40pm. Walking distances are several hundred metres at each location.
