From $436 to $1836

Exceptional Kangaroo Island offers this scheduled small group tour which showcases the diversity of the Island’s wildlife and landscapes.

This full day experience, which operates more as a conversation than a commentary, takes you through the Cygnet Valley red gum forests seeking out koalas and birdlife, stopping for morning tea with loose leaf teas, fresh-ground plunger coffee and a selection of home-baked treats.

Travel up to Stokes Bay on the North Coast and explore the habitat of tammar wallabies, kangaroos and endangered glossy-black cockatoos.

Break for lunch on “Ellamatta” at a private bush lunchsite where your guide will prepare an elegant lunch served with premium Kangaroo Island wines, beers and soft drinks. The meal features King George whiting, grilled haloumi and fresh garden salad.

After lunch journey to the South Coast where you can take a private tour with your guide into the Australian sea-lion colony at Seal Bay where the breeding and feeding ecology of these engaging mammals is explained to you. Our guides are all local people with a passion for sharing their stories of living on Kangaroo Island and guests often liken our tours to be shown around by friends rather than a typical tour experience.
