      Day 1: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island

      Today, an early start is required to catch your SeaLink bus transfer from Adelaide CBD to the ferry terminal at Cape Jervis. Board the ferry for a 45-minute cruise to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Your Untamed Escapes Guide will meet you here and give you an overview of the adventure ahead for the next few days.

      Hop on board the bus and take a scenic coastal drive to Pennington Bay on the island’s south coast. With powerful swells rolling in, this beach is famed for its epic surf breaks. Climb the 500 steps to the top of Prospect Hill, the highest point on Kangaroo Island, for rewarding views and to get your bearings.

      Next, travel to one of the island’s most breathtaking beaches, Emu Bay. Here we will have lunch and time to cool down with a swim in the turquoise waters before weaving our way through a labyrinth of caves and emerging at Stokes Bay. Voted the best beach in Australia in 2023, enjoy some free time to snorkel among the rock pools or soak up the magical landscape surrounding you.

      Visit Kangaroo Island’s first cellar-door microbrewery – the perfect place to relax. Come late afternoon, arrive at our eco-campsite at the eastern end of the island, where the isolation, ruggedness and beauty are striking.

      After dinner, head out on a nocturnal wildlife-spotting adventure. Nighttime is when many of the native animals found on the island are at their most active. Tonight, roll out your swag underneath the billions of stars of the Milky Way and feel an incredible connection with nature.

      Today we drive approximately 240 km.


      * Note – camping or dorm accommodation will be at Pelican Lagoon Lodge until our new eco-campsite is completed in 2024. Please see the Know Before You Go information below.

      Day 2: Kangaroo Island

      After breakfast, we’ll set our coordinates for Flinders Chase National Park, located at the northwestern point of the island. This park is renowned for its rock formations, impressive beaches, and abundant wildlife.

      At Admirals Arch, wander along a boardwalk as you soak up the serenity and keep your eyes peeled for the resident New Zealand fur seals. Marvel at the iconic Remarkable Rocks, shaped by nature for over 500 million years. Take a bush walk at Weirs Cove before a picnic lunch to refuel.

      This afternoon you will have the chance to make your journey meaningful by taking part in a volunteer conservation effort at the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. This 2,000-hectare wilderness sanctuary is a haven for native wildlife such as koalas, kangaroos, possums, echidnas, reptiles and birdlife. Like most of Kangaroo Island, it was devastated by the 2020 bushfires and has since become a story of resilience, recovery and regeneration. Our conservation work depends on the time of year but may involve seed collecting, tree planting or counting wildlife.

      Next, it’s time for an incredible wildlife encounter. Seal Bay is home to the third-largest colony of endangered Australian sea lions, with around 800 calling the bay home. Join a 45-minute tour with the National Parks & Wildlife guides, who know pretty much everything there is to know about these beautiful creatures. Follow a boardwalk through the dunes down to the beach, and on the way, pass sea lions snoozing or even lying in the middle of the beach path and learn about conservation efforts to save this endangered species.

      After a full day, head back towards camp to reflect and relax over dinner before rolling out your swag and counting shooting stars.

      Today we drive approximately 295 km.

      Day 3: Kangaroo Island to Adelaide

      It’s up early today to take the short drive to Penneshaw for your 8.30 am ferry back to the mainland. But we have time for one last bush walk before farewelling your Guide. Once you arrive in Cape Jervis, your SeaLink bus connection will have you back in Adelaide at 11 am.

      Where will I sleep on tour?

      Accommodation is at Pelican Lagoon Lodge until our new eco-campsite is completed in 2024. Here you can roll out your swag and camp under the stars in their camping area. Or choose to upgrade to a four-share dorm with shared facilities for two nights at an extra cost of $50 per person.

      Planning for our eco-campground in Cape Willoughby is underway, and it will hopefully be ready for guests in the first half of 2024. This purpose-built site nestled in lush bushland will feature swag huts, a camp kitchen, firepits, toilets and showers. Therefore the upgrade will only be available until March 2024, as the new site will not have accommodation.
