2 Day Kangaroo Island Tour - Emu Bay
DAY 1: Depart Adelaide approximately 7:00AM for Kangaroo Island. We travel along some of South Australia's magnificent coastline to Cape Jervis where we board the Kangaroo Island Sealink to Penneshaw. We now follow the coast to Kingscote. On the way to Kingscote is Pennington Bay which is a wonderful surf beach. We now head to the south coast of the island. It is now onto Seal Bay , a large sandy beach and dune area where Australian sea lions rest and nurse their young. We see these rare sea lions under the guidance of a National Parks Ranger. We walk on the beach within a few metres of the resting sea lions, basking in the sun. We now head to Little Sahara, an area of spectacular white sand dunes surrounded by bush vegetation. Overnight Flinders Chase farmstay.
DAY 2: Today we visit Flinders Chase National Park, one of Australia's largest covering 74,000 hectares. Here you will see many of the animals and birds you have come to see. At Rocky River it is possible to view koalas in the nearby trees. At Cape du Couedic we proceed down a walkway to Admirals Arch, the home to a colony of New Zealand Fur Seals. We travel east to Remarkable Rocks; a cluster of huge, weather sculptured granite boulders perched on a granite dome that swoops 75 metres to the sea. We now take in the sights around Kingscote including Cygnet River and Duck Lagoon and Emu Bay. This long beach is one of the most popular spots on the island with safe clear water for swimming. We head to Penneshaw where we board the Kangaroo Island Sealink for trip back to Cape Jervis. We now head to Adelaide, arriving approximately 10:00PM.
