As this is a private tour, there are alternate activities which can be substituted, and we recommend setting up the priority activities in advance to ensure availability.
Head to Stokes Bay and seek out Kangaroos, Wallabies and Koalas in the bush. Take a walk to explore the hidden beach, before heading inland for lunch.
Enjoy a barbecue at a private bush camp in the Cygnet River valley. Take a walk to explore the surroundings, seeking out bush birds, waterbirds, koalas and colourful cockatoos.
After lunch, meet your skipper for an ocean rafting adventure and come prepared for a swim. The team from Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures assist in the dolphin watch programme, and they can share details about the visual recognition system used to track dolphin movement between pods.
Depending on weather conditions and the activities of any dolphins we encounter this experience may include swimming with dolphins in the open ocean.
Start the day at Vivonne Bay for a fun-fuelled ATV adventure with KI Outdoor Action. Take a private guided tour around the extensive property, traversing a range of habitat types include open grasslands, rock sand dunes and mallee woodlands. Keep an eye out for goannas, koalas, kangaroos and echidnas.
Leave the bikes and drive to Seal Bay and take a private guided tour of the Australian Sea-lion colony.
Break for a picnic lunch and then take a beach hike into the Cape Gantheaume wilderness at Bales Bay – along the way we will collect any marine pollution we can manage and remove it from the park.
End the day at D’Estrees Bay and explore the bays, beaches and wildlife habitat on this sweeping coastline.
Begin the day in the island’s north-west in an important private wildlife refuge with Kangaroo Island Land for Wildlife. Here, gain an insight into (and take part in) the fantastic conservation work being done by Pat, Heidi and their team to assist some of the lesser-known (and often nocturnal) native animals.
Lunch is a picnic enjoyed in the bush and consists of marinated poached chicken, fresh salads, cheeses and fantastic South Australian wine, beer, soft drinks and spring water.
After lunch, travel into Flinders Chase National Park and explore the massive natural sculptures of Remarkable Rocks whose abstract forms look like a meeting of the minds of Henry Moore and Salvador Dali. Perched on the cliffs with panoramic views, this offers great photo opportunities.
A short drive away, a boardwalk leads to Admirals Arch – a coastal grotto which is home to a large colony of long-nosed fur-seals who swim effortlessly through the crashing waves. Look for seals swimming in rock-pools and resting on smooth rock ledges.
At the days end, spend some time gaining an understanding of the earliest human occupation of the Island. Discuss what our Indigenous Australians survived or even thrived on across the Island – a selection of items foraged, hunted and fished from the local environment.
