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 trust your instincts and find your Trip Manager to find you a great feed 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 recommendations? Go swimming with dolphins (or admire them from deck), enjoy a relaxed afternoon tasting wine along the glittering coast, or head up to the roof of the Adelaide Oval to see the skyline from new heights - followed by a night in Adelaide’s stylish cocktail bars, of course.

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. 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. You'll be spoilt for choice if you're seeking a thrill this afternoon - you can opt to try Sandboarding, Tobogganing, or even a Buggy Tour.

DAY 5 - Kangaroo Island to Adelaide

Kangaroo Island

We're hopping on a ferry back to Adelaide today, as our trip comes to an end (sobs).


Our adventure is over, but swap deets and arrange your next adventure together. Maybe on another continent next time?
