Whilst Kangaroo Island is much celebrated for its wildlife, its food and wine are integral parts of the Kangaroo Island experience.

Sample some of Kangaroo Island’s freshwater crayfish – the Marron or savour the famous King George Whiting.
See the wonders of this great Island such as the Seal Bay Conservation Park where you will be taken on a beach walk tour with an experienced guide to be amongst a colony of rare and wild Australian sea lions – a truly amazing and unforgettable experience.
Visit Flinders Chase National Park, a sanctuary for native Australian wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and echidnas. Get some awesome photo opportunities at Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, a natural nursery and safe haven for playful Long-nosed Fur Seals that can be seen resting, swimming and playing in the waves or on the rocks.
Day 5: Return on the ferry to Cape Jervis and travel to McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula for your final night. Take time to discover the many cellar doors and sample some local produce that the region is famous for, including Wirra Wirra Vineyards and The Cube at d’Arenberg Winery.
