The Itinerary
Day 1: Home Port / Kangaroo Island                                                                           Meals: Dinner
This morning we make our way down to Cape Jervis before boarding Kangaroo Island Sea Link Ferry at 10.00am for our
crossing to Kangaroo Island. Arriving at Penneshaw we are met by our Kangaroo Island guide and begin our adventure
as we arrive at the Maritime and Folk Museum as we slip back in time and wander into the former Penneshaw (Hog Bay)
School and find a collection of items relating to the History of the Dudley Peninsula district. Also found here is special
nautical section highlighting the shipping history of the Island. After lunch in town we visit Clifford’s Honey Farm and
hear about the placid Ligurian Bees, their breeding and the production of over 10,000 kilograms of pure honey annually.
Kangaroo Island is thought to be the only place in the world where a pure strain of the Ligurian bees exists. We enjoy a taste
of the different varieties as well as the chance to purchase some of Jenny’s famous honey ice cream. We then stop at
the Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil Distillery where we will learn the distilling process, operating the same way it began in the
1890`s. While here we may like to purchase a bottle from the only commercial distillery still in operation in South Australia.
Later in the afternoon we arrive in the delightful American River and check into the Kangaroo Island Lodge before dinner.

Day 2: Seal Bay / Flinders Chase National Park                                        Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Today we travel into the famous Seal Bay Conservation Park, the only place in the world where we can stroll with our guide
through a wild seal colony. Seal Bay is home to around 600 of the rare Australian Sea Lions. After leaving Seal Bay we travel
into the magnificent Flinders Chase National Park enjoying breathtaking views of Yacca Flat and coastal scenery on our
way to the Cape du Couedic Lighthouse and keepers residences. Built in 1909 it is considered to be the Islands finest
structure. With the automation of the lighthouse, the nearby keeper’s residences are now available for accommodation.
This area is home to a colony of New Zealand Fur Seals and the natural land bridge that is “Admirals Arch”. After taking
the boardwalk down to the arch we may witness the amazing sight of New Zealand Fur Seals frolicking in the water and
on the rocks under the arch. We then travel a short distance to Weirs Cove as our guide explains the history of the ruins of
the storage huts and the steep jetty. We then view the spectacular Remarkable Rocks. We are able to take a walk around
these unusual huge boulders, which have been carved, into many different weird and wonderful shapes by the wind and
ocean spray over many centuries. Later in the day we travel back up to American River for dinner.

Day 3 continued:
The Rare Breeds Farm is a unique collection of rare and unusual breeds of domesticated farm animals, many of the
breeds kept are on the brink of extinction and not on public displays any where else in the world. Here you will find breeds
of Cattle, Sheep, Pigs, & Poultry in forms and colours that you never previously knew existed. Our next stop is at Bay Bush
Gardens where we are able to wander through 7 acres of beautiful native flowering parklands with 2 delightful walking
tracks. After leaving Stokes Bay we travel into Emu Bay arriving at the Emu Bay Lavender Farm where we enjoy a delicious
bbq lunch and time to browse through the range of products and gifts made on site. This afternoon enjoy a stroll along the
beautiful long sandy beach situated in the Emu Bay area. We then visit the Island Pure Sheep Dairy enjoying an audio
visual before seeing the sheep being milked with up to 300 milked at any one milking and some may be surprised to learn
that there are more sheep milked worldwide than cows. We also have the opportunity (if game) to taste their world class
cheeses and yoghurt made at the dairy, which include Spanish, Greek, Italian and Cypriot recipes. Later in the day we
return to the Lodge for a Pre Dinner Sunset Soiree as we enjoy a stunning KI sunset, while tasting succulent American
River Oysters with a glass of bubbly or wine to pass in the most beautiful time of the day. We take in Pennington Bay’s
spectacular views, the glow of colour on the Redbanks or the peaceful serenity of Eastern Cove. After sunset we enjoy
dinner back at the Lodge.

This morning we make our way to Kingscote stopping at the Hope Cottage and Folk Museum one of three cottages built
by the Calnan Brothers in the 1850`s, called Hope, Faith and Charity, with only Hope and Charity still erect. We tour
Kingscote which is Kangaroo Island’s main town with a population of approximately 1,800. Kingscote was originally known
as Queenscliffe and is a short distance from Reeves Point, the birthplace of South Australia. We enjoy time to purchase
lunch in Kingscote before calling into the Sunset Winery to enjoy the stunning views and ambience at Sunset Winery while
sampling Kangaroo Island wine at the Island’s only cellar door outlet. We make our way back to the Lodge to relax and
enjoy an early dinner before we take in some of the Island's nocturnal wildlife, including Kangaroos, Tammar Wallabies
and Brush- tailed possums, be amazed at the southern hemisphere’s brilliant night skies. We enjoy the added value of a
cheese platter with a glass of local dessert wine whilst en-route to the Penneshaw Penguin Centre. An informative talk
and a wander along the boardwalk will treat you to the magnificent site of penguins as they waddle in from the sea to roost.
The behaviour and number of penguins observed varies with seasons - as explained by your guide. Later in the evening we
travel back to the Lodge for a good nights rest.
