Leaving Adelaide at 7.15 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, 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 the south coast which has many weather worn natural structures, and as we will see, the home to large sea lion colonies. Here at the Seal Bay Conservation park there is a rangerguided walk amongst a rare colony of Seals that will teach us all we need to know about these charming animals. Late afternoon we head to the little Sahara for some sand boarding fun. Next stop is at our comfortable accommodation at the KI Woolshed farm stay. 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. After a Steak sandwich picnic lunch in the Flinders Chase National Park, we travel along the North Coast Rd to Stokes Bay. Here we enjoy one of the Island’s most beautiful beaches. This idyllic Aussie beach gives us opportunities to search in rock pools, play beach games or just walk along the shores to enjoy the atmosphere. Driving the roads around the area provides plenty of kangaroo spotting too. Late afternoon we head back to Penneshaw so as to transfer onto the 4.30pm Sealink Ferry Connection. Light Pizza dinner will be on offer at Yankalilla on our way to Adelaide. Arrival around 7.30pm.
