Itinerary

Day 1: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island

Today, an early start is required to catch your 6.45am 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 great experience ahead for the next few days.

Hop on board the bus and start exploring Kangaroo Island! 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.

Kangaroo Island is the world’s oldest bee sanctuary and is home to the only pure strain of Ligurian Bee in the world. Pop into Clifford’s Honey to learn all about these fascinating creatures and, of course, do a tasting. Next, visit family-owned Dudley Wines, where you can sprawl out on their lush lawns and take in the incredible views over the ocean – the perfect place to relax and connect with your fellow travellers.

Come late afternoon, arrive at our eco-campsite, aptly named “Happiness”. Featuring private access to one of Kangaroo Island’s most stunning beaches – Antechamber Bay, you’ll be right at home here for the next two nights. Enjoy some free time to relax or take a walk down to the beach.

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.

  • Accommodation: Swag camping
  • Meals: L | D

Day 2: Kangaroo Island

After breakfast, add meaning to your trip 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, we’ll set our coordinates for the iconic 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 Remarkable Rocks, shaped by nature for over 500 million years. Take a bush walk at Weirs Cove before a picnic lunch to refuel.

After lunch, 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 340 km.

  • Accommodation: Swag camping
  • Meals: B | L | D

Day 3: Kangaroo Island to Adelaide

Start the final day of your tour with a morning hike before taking some free time in Kingscote to grab a coffee. Explore the island’s stunning north coast for the remainder of the day.

Weave your way through a labyrinth of caves before emerging at the beach voted best in Australia in 2023 – Stokes Bay. Have a picnic lunch, and if the weather is right, enjoy some free time to snorkel among the rock pools or soak up the surrounding landscape.

Today, you’ll also become a citizen scientist and contribute to conservation efforts and research on the island in partnership with Passport to Recovery.

This afternoon, head back to “Happiness” to freshen up, pack your things and head to Penneshaw for your 7.30pm ferry back to the mainland. But we will have time for one last dinner (at own expense), before farewelling your Guide. Once you arrive in Cape Jervis, your SeaLink bus connection will have you back in Adelaide at 11 pm.
