We pick up from the airport or the clients accommodation. We arrive at Rocky River, headquarters of the Flinders Chase National Park. Here, kangaroos laze and Cape Barren geese graze. The Chase is home to all our varieties of native animals and birds. On to Admirals Arch, an ancient limestone formation close to the ocean, a perfect haul-out area for an active colony of the New Zealand fur seal. To Remarkable Rocks, via the spectacular coastline of Cape du Couedic, where the forces of nature have carved modern sculptures out of the granite. A short bush walk searching for the Echidna (spiny ant-eater) and observing the colourful Kangaroo Island endemic Crimson Rosella. Head back 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. Your guide will then take you down a bush lined track and into ‘Grassdale’, part of the Kelly Hill Conservation Park. Here you will enjoy viewing the large ‘mob’ of Kangaroo’s that graze the grassy flats and shelter in the surrounding bush. Also listen for the many parrot and other bird species that live in the tall gum trees. Wonder through some of the old relics that speak of a by gone era of early pioneer farming. Head for Vivonne Bay, with its crystal clear turquoise water. Your guide will take you to Point Ellen where you can fossick for shells on the beach and possibly sight a penguin in its rookery Our tour concludes with your departure at the airport, or return to your Island accommodation.
