Kangaroo Island stands out as one of Australia’s truly remarkable natural landscapes, with gorgeous beaches, rugged bushland and abundant wildlife just the very beginning of what is always an unforgettable adventure!
For Adelaide visitors looking to experience some of the fine nature that surrounds the city, you will be stoked to know that you can most certainly take a day trip from Adelaide to Kangaroo Island.
A day tour from Adelaide to Kangaroo Island and back takes roughly 16 hours, in which you will experience some of the island’s most famous sites and experiences, including Flinders Chase National Park, Vivonne Bay and the marvellous Seal Bay Conservation Park!
So, let’s take a closer look at this iconic day trip, and why it will be one of the most memorable days in your travelling life:
Flinders Chase National Park
Flinders Chase is southern Australia’s answer to the Top End’s Kakadu, a sprawling natural wonderland comprising amazing Aussie wildlife, gorgeous views and some truly fascinating landmarks!
You can take your time to meander the stunning national park, where the likes of kangaroos, koalas, echidnas, reptiles and all kinds of birds cruise around through their respective habitats.
Next, it’s onto the unmistakable Remarkable Rocks, a series of bizarre rock formations that appear to have impossibly reached their gravity-defying forms over aeons of development.
Finally, to the Admirals Arch, an intriguing cave opening with stunning vistas out onto the raging Great Australian Bite!
Vivonne Bay is one of Australia’s few beaches to ever be crowned the most beautiful in the whole country, and it’s easy to see why: Vivonne Bay is a truly sublime stretch of white sand and turquoise blue waters, a marvellous expanse that encapsulates the island’s unparalleled majestic beauty… you will then experience a gorgeous two-course meal at the famed Vivonne Bay Bistro before continuing the journey.
Seal Bay Conservation Park
Seal Bay Conservation Park is exactly as it sounds: a wondrous place for Kangaroo Island’s adorable Australian sea lion colony to hang around and frolic peacefully in the bay’s cool waters.
The conservation park houses Australia’s third largest sea lion colony, making it an amazing place to see plenty of these uber cute sea/land animals in their natural habitat.
Wow, all that in one day? It’s easy to see why the Adelaide – Kangaroo Island day tour is one of the most exciting going around!
