About this activity
With pick up from selected accommodations or Kingscote airport between 9 and 10am, this full day share tour explores some of Kangaroo Island’s highlights and lesser known backtracks of Flinders Chase National Park - a wilderness covering nearly 75,000 hectares (200,000 acres). It is home to kangaroos, wallabies, possums, goannas, echidnas, koalas, platypus and many birds including rare Cape Barren Geese. Over 50 of the plants on the Island are found nowhere else on earth. In addition to the wildlife habitat the park also protects important geological features and cultural heritage sites.

The drive to Cape du Couedic takes in dramatic dune country with a complex fire history and an interesting range of vegetation types. The road alignment follows the original horse trail between the ranger station and the lighthouse settlement on the tip of the peninsula.

At Cape du Couedic visit a fur seal colony which now flourishing after being decimated by hunting in the early 1800’s. These animals can be observed at rest on the rocks or frolicking in the surf under Admirals Arch - a spectacular coastal grotto. On the headland above is a beautiful stone lighthouse where three light keepers and their families lived, maintaining a warning for ships. With no road access until 1940 life was tough - supplies came by sea only every 3 months.

Another impressive stone structure had a different architect - nature. Huge granite sculptures known as Remarkable Rocks, have been carved by relentless winds, rain and salt from the Southern Ocean. The end result looks like a meeting of the minds of Henri Moore and Salvador Dali!

Good wines and local produce features highly in the picnic lunch provided which you can enjoy out in the bush before exploring more of the Island. In the afternoon visit “Grassdale” which is an historic farm in the heart of Kelly Hill Conservation Park where some of the Island's pioneer heritage is explored as well as being an excellent location for wild kangaroo encounters.

Around 6pm you will be returned to your original departure point - actual time will depend on logistics on the day.
