    Included: Breakfast, transfers, private charter flight, dinner, One Kangaroo Island

    Days 10 - 11: One Kangaroo Island

    One Kangaroo Island offers an exclusive, luxury retreat on the island – few buildings in the world are surrounded by such natural beauty. This sustainable eco retreat offers large decks with spectacular views, a lavish outdoor bath overlooking the ocean and the peaceful serenity of this private paradise. Included in your stay are three-course dinners prepared by your private chef, delicious breakfasts overlooking the ocean and premium Kangaroo Island and South Australian wines. You’ll have exclusive private access to the beach. Why not spend your time swimming and snorkelling in the clear water, kayaking along the shore, collecting shells and looking out for dolphins and eagle rays. Look out for kangaroos and echidnas, toast the scarlet sunsets with a glass of sauvignon and stargaze under the Milky Way each night.

    On your first day here, we’ve included a full day private tour learning about island life. Start the day with a cup of tea and some home-made treats before taking down a country track through tall Eucalyptus trees where koalas snooze overhead or wake briefly for a feed. Listen for the sounds of the bush – brightly coloured honeyeaters and brilliant parrots, cicadas or perhaps just the sound of silence.

    You’ll then travel through the island’s most productive country to the north coast. Walk through the bush with your guide, learning and asking questions - what makes that noise, whose tracks are those? Look for small wallabies almost extinct on the mainland, a kangaroo found only on Kangaroo Island and a variety of other birds, plants and animals.

    Enjoy a sensational lunch at a private bush camp featuring King George whiting (local sea fish), fresh salads and fine South Australian wines before heading to Seal Bay in the afternoon to see the Australian sea-lions. Watch pups nursing or playing in the surf, see old bulls bearing the scars of territorial disputes and learn about their unique breeding biology.

    On your final day on Kangaroo Island, you’ll head off on a full day private tour to Flinders Chase National Park. Travel into the national park and explore the massive shapes of Remarkable Rocks, a natural sculpture perched impossibly on top a granite dome plunging into the ocean. Break for an elegant picnic lunch in the bush, or if weather permits, on a spectacular clifftop. Lunch features marinated poached chicken, fresh salads, cheeses accompanied by local wine or beers. After lunch you’ll head to see the vast sweel of the Southern Ocean at Admirals Arch – a coastal grotto which provides a haul out for a large colony of Long-nosed fur seals which swim effortlessly through crashing waves.

    In the afternoon, you’ll return back to Kingscote and take a private charter flight back to Adelaide.

    Included: Breakfast, private touring, transfers, private charter flight, Eos by SkyCity
