Your first official stop will be Clifford?s Honey Farm to enjoy an informative talk by the beekeeper followed by tastings and an opportunity to sample homemade honey ice-cream and honey beauty products. Then travel onto Vivonne Bay Bistro located on a 260 hectare bush property, for a delicious two course lunch. After lunch visit Seal Bay Conservation Park and enjoy a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger amongst a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian Sea-lions. Your tour will then visit another amazing wildlife attraction, the fascinating ‘In-Flight’ Birds of Prey display, an interactive and educational display of native Australian birds and raptors. From here you will travel to Kingscote to watch the pelican feeding and learn a little about these fascinating and ancient birds, before being transferred to your choice of overnight accommodation.
After your morning hotel pick up, your second day of touring begins at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, an interesting bush engineered eucalyptus distillery that makes the most of its environmental resources. After testing and tasting the eucalyptus products, travel to the centre of the Island to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park where you can feed kangaroos, have your photograph taken with a koala, and enjoy a guided tour of the park. Next, travel to Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary to look for Koalas nestled up in the eucalypts, and then travel to the western most part of the Island, Flinders Chase National Park, where you will enjoy a scrumptious two course lunch at Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat. After lunch and a short stop at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre, travel through the park and learn about its unique trees and plants. See the rugged southern coastline, and enjoy a walk around Remarkable Rocks, providing spectacular photographic opportunities, before continuing on to Admirals Arch, where the boardwalk takes you down a rugged cliff face to reveal this spectacular arch, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful Long-nosed fur seals that can be seen swimming and playing in the waves, or resting on the rocks. There is a possibility you will see more wildlife on your journey back to Penneshaw, where you will join the ferry and coach for your return transfer to Adelaide.
