More Details:

Leaving Adelaide at 6.15 am we make our way to Cape Jervis and transfer to the Sealink Ferry. The journey across the Backstairs Passage is aboard a modern and comfortable vehicle ferry. Once on the island we first make our way to the Clifford’s Honey Farm, which is home to the purest strain of the Ligurian bee. Here you can buy fine honey and other products, which is produced from the Island’s diverse flora. Before lunch we visit Emu Ridge Eucalyptus distillery. An old farming industry where gum leaves are processed to extract the eucalyptus oil for medicines, soaps, skin lotions and more. After a fish and chips lunch at Kingscote we travel along to Stokes Bay along the North Coast Rd, here we enjoy the one of the Island’s most beautiful beaches. The idyllic Aussie beach gives us opportunities to search in rock pools, play beach cricket or just walk along the shores to enjoy the atmosphere. Driving the roads around the area provides plenty of kangaroo spotting too.

Next stop is at our comfortable accommodation at Flinders Chase Farm. A big Aussie BBQ is planned around a bon-fire. After dinner, there will be an optional tour to see the night wildlife and the amazing stars of the Southern Hemisphere. After breakfast, we explore some of South Australia’s premier natural wonders. First stop is the Flinders Chase National Park home to the Remarkable Rocks, Cape De Couedic and Admirals Arch. The south coast has many weather worn natural structures, and as we will see, some have become home to large sea lion colonies. After a Steak sandwich picnic lunch in the Flinders Chase National Park, we head off to Hanson Bay Koala Sanctuary. Here you be  able to see close up koalas in their natural habitat. Later in the afternoon we head to Seal Bay Conservation park. A ranger-guided walk amongst a rare colony of Seals will teach us all we need to know about these charming animals. Late afternoon we head back to Penneshaw depart Penneshaw so as to transfer onto the 5.30pm Sealink Ferry Connection. Light Pizza dinner will be on offer at Yankalilla on the way back to Adelaide. Arrival will be around 8.00pm.
