ITINERARY

Day 1 – Welcome to Kangaroo Island

Your Kangaroo Island adventure starts with your ferry from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island. From here it is a 30mins transfer to Sea Dragon Lodge.

Your accommodation is in a Luxury Ocean Villa for the next three nights, architecturally designed to provide luxury and a strong connection to the natural Australian bush. The rooms offer open plan living with a relaxing ambience and provide spectacular and sweeping ocean views.

 

 

Day 2 – Kangaroo Island Natural Wonder

Spend the day on this small-group tour with your professional guide exploring the diverse natural attractions and wildlife of Kangaroo Island, one of Australia’s premium nature-based destinations.

Enjoy short walks, a picnic lunch and close up wildlife encounters while learning about the history and nature of this amazing island.

Departing from Sea Dragon at approximately 9.00 am, our day of adventure begins travelling west across the island towards the first stop, Seal Bay Conservation Park. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife on the roadsides as you drive through a variety of vegetative areas.

Seal Bay Conservation Park is home to the endangered Australian sea lion. With only an estimated 12,000 sea lions left in the world, Seal Bay is the third largest colony of this species. Walk through the striking sand dune system and along the pristine beach with your experienced guide or knowledgeable Park Ranger for approximately an hour, learning all about these beautiful mammals.

On the way to famous Flinders Chase National Park keep an eye out for Rosenberg goannas lazing in the sun, where we’ll view the stunning rejuvenation of native bush species from the devastating bushfires of 2019-20. A stop at Remarkable Rocks will give you the first views of the rugged coastline in this diverse national park. The amazing rock formations and distinct red rocks are a photographer’s delight.

After stopping for lunch, the afternoon will be spent at other known attractions in the park, namely Cape Du Couedic, Weirs Cove and Admirals Arch.

Learn about the early maritime history of this wild environment, all the while spotting other native animal species including long-nosed fur seals at Admirals Arch, echidnas, kangaroos, tammar wallabies and a range of birds and reptiles.

Did you know that Kangaroo Island has its own kangaroo? A sub-species of the western grey kangaroo, the Kangaroo Island sub-species is darker brown colour, shorter and stockier.

On the return to Sea Dragon we will stop for a swim or a short walk at one of the many picturesque beaches (temperatures permitting), arriving back at approximately 5.30pm.

 

Day 3: Taste of Kangaroo Island

Enjoy this small-group tour visiting a diverse range of predominantly small businesses and providores on Kangaroo Island – home to some of Australia’s premium Ligurian honey, beers and spirits.

Departing from Sea Dragon at approximately 10.00 am, the next hours are spent visiting a variety of venues specialising in food and drink production. The specific locations will vary depending on time of year, seasonal produce, operating hours and other operational factors, however a highlight of the day is no doubt a visit to KI Spirits, Australia’s first dedicated gin distillery.

Join a guided tour of the garden with a distillery host, learning about the native botanicals that go into the specially crafted gin. Afterward, take some time to appreciate samples of gin and mixers and enjoy lunch in the garden. As a Sea Dragon guest you will access special rates for any KI Spirits products you wish to take home with you.

For those that are not partial to alcohol you will receive an alternative tasting option.

Other locations visited in the day might include: an organic honey farm to learn about Ligurian bees and taste their honey, a KI Brewery for a tasting paddle of their craft beer or a visit to Emu Bay Lavender Farm, home to an estimated 7,500 plants.

We return to Sea Dragon mid-afternoon at approximately 3.30pm.

 

 

Day 4: Farewell to Kangaroo Island

Wake up early this morning to enjoy a farewell walk of this amazing wildlife haven.

Sea Dragon Lodge offers several nature walks and extensive wildlife. Its 250 acre wildlife sanctuary is the home to most species of animal living on Kangaroo Island. Most animals are more active in the early morning and late afternoon so an early morning walk is the perfect time to see these iconic Australian wildlife.

Your transfer will then take you back to Penneshaw for your ferry back to the mainland.
