- Duration: 9 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: WSC1
Your tour begins immediately after pick up at Kingscote Airport (0925 flight) or island selected accommodation. We head for Seal Bay where your driver / guide takes you on the beach for a fascinating, informed walk amongst the sea-lions, a colony of 600 bulls, cows and pups.
Afterwards, we take a welcome morning tea break with home-made biscuits, freshly ground coffee, and tea.
On to spend a wonderful few hours in the Island’s largest park, Flinders Chase, 74,000 hectares. We have the opportunity to see an abundance of Australian native wildlife at Rocky River, headquarters of the Park. From there we drive through dense forest of Eucalyptus and Casuarina to Admirals Arch and the colony of New Zealand fur seals. Their haul-out area at the Arch itself provides a wonderful viewing area of the colony at play or rest. The ocean views are fantastic as we progress towards Remarkable Rocks. Marvel at this geological natural wonder of “modern art” formed over 500 million years ago!. Here we wander through the sculptures of granite, carved by natural forces. Head back to Rocky River for a BBQ lunch of marinated steak, onions and potatoes, cooked in front of you by your guide (now turned chef!). This is complimented by fresh salads, local KI wines and other refreshments. For dessert spoil yourself by indulging in our special Pears poached in KI red wine, accompanied by KI’s unique Sheep’s Milk Yogurt. All this served in the bush, nestled amongst the beautiful tall Gum trees.
After our meal, we head for Koala Avenue just outside the Park where Koalas are easily seen in the ‘Manna Gums’ that grow in the area.
Our tour concludes with your departure at the airport (1830 flight), or at your Island accommodation.
