Enjoy a lovely trip through some of Kangaroo Island's most significant food and liquor producers. If you're a true foody, this is the perfect way to make the most of your cruise stop and get to know the island through its diverse culinary offer.

After getting picked up from the port, begin with a scenic drive to Pennington Bay. Take in spectacular views of the Penneshaw coastline as you arrive at a stunning beach, where dolphins and whales can often be spotted. Snap some amazing photos and head out on your food journey.

Hear how the distillation process takes place before going over to Emu Bay and the Lavender Farm for morning tea. Stop at Kingscote for some time off to wander around and make your way to Bay of Shoal Wines for a great wine tasting.

Finally, visit Kangaroo Island Spirits for some gin, vodka, and liquor tasting, then be driven back to the cruise ship terminal at Penneshaw.

Important information

Not allowed

  • Luggage or large bags

Know before you go

  • Wine and liquor tastings are only available to people over 18.
  • Travel Insurance is highly recommended as sometimes, due to severe weather, the tenders cannot come across. Our tours are non refundable if cancelled within 48 hours of travel regardless of reason due to the expenses involved in preparing for the shore excursions including bringing buses over from the mainland on the ferry. For Australian Residents, you can take out Travel Insurance with Nib for Cruising in Australian Waters and it does cover tour cancellation fees and severe weather.
