DAY 1 - Arrive Adelaide


Welcome to Adelaide, the sophisticated city blessed with gorgeous Victorian architecture, a buzzing cultural scene and soulful beach vibes. We'll meet the rest of our group this afternoon before embarking on a walking tour of this tiny city. Adelaide has some amazing eateries, and tonight you can opt into experiencing some of them on our Peel Street dinner experience. Or you can trust your instincts and find your own feed for the night before checking out some of the legendary night life.

DAY 2 - Adelaide


We've got another day in Adelaide. Lucky us! There are plenty of eateries, beaches, and historic buildings to explore, but our recommendation? Join us on a quick drive to the Barossa Valley, one of the best wine regions in the world. This optional experience will allow us to explore this spectacular valley today, taking a wine tour and sampling some of the most awarded drops in the world, meeting winemakers and soaking up all of that incredible scenery.

DAY 3 - Adelaide to Kangaroo Island


This morning we're headed over to Cape Jervis to hop on a ferry to the iconic Kangaroo Island.

Kangaroo Island

Across the Backstair Passage we'll swing to Kangaroo Island, a pure wildlife paradise. From dolphins, to echidnas, seals to the titular 'roos, this place has a laid back pace, incredible food and even better wildlife. We're lucky enough to have 2 full days of adventure on the island ahead of us, where we'll get to visit a Wildlife Sanctuary, Dudley's winery, and even have an option to go sand boarding at Little Sahara.

DAY 4 - Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island

Wake up, you're in paradise! And we have plenty of adventures awaiting us on Kangaroo Island today. You could opt to go kayaking, quad biking, or if you're feeling more zen vibes, head to KI Spirit and learn to blend your own gin. We'll take an included tour of Seal Bay Beach, a conservation park that preserves a natural habitat for the majestic sea lion. We'll also visit the island's showstopper - Flinder's Chase. This National Park is home to the world-famous Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. We'll wind along the walking trails, spotting wildlife and admiring the rugged coastal scenery.
