Full description
Explore Kangaroo Island on a personalized small group tour on a day trip from Adelaide. Ride in comfort on a coach from Adelaide CBD, board the ferry to access the island, then join a 4x4 small group tour to get up-close and personal to Australian native animals.

Be picked up at 06:45 from your Adelaide CBD hotel for a scenic coach journey to Cape Jervis. Then, board the ferry for the 45 minute crossing to Kangaroo Island. Your island nature experience will begin when you are met by your local guide. Tour through several island habitats and see Australian native wildlife in their natural environments. Visit Seal Bay Conservation Park, where your guide will escort you on a memorable walk among the sea lions. You are able to stand at a safe distance and see them up-close. 

Enjoy a delicious gourmet picnic style lunch with South Australian wine on a natural bush property. After lunch, go for a bush walk or a stroll along the beach. As the day draws to a close, see the kangaroos leave the safety of the bush to begin grazing on the open pastures. Your tour will conclude in time for the return ferry to the mainland then transfer by coach to Adelaide. Return to Adelaide around 10:45 and be dropped off at your Adelaide CBD hotel.
