This tours travels from from the Outback to the sea and offers unique opportunities to observe South Australia's finest wildlife, including koala, red, western grey and euro kangaroo, Australian sealion, glossy black cockatoo, echidna and if you are lucky, platypus.  

Beginning in the Gawler Ranges National Park, this area is known for its spectacular rock formations and breath-taking landscapes including Wudinna Rock, Lake Gairdner and Baird's Bay - where there are opportunities to share the shallow waters with sealions and dolphins.

The adventure continues on Kangaroo Island - a haven for Australian native species, where guided activities allow you to explore Flinders Chase, Seal Bay and Ravine des Casoars Conservation Areas. During explorations of the island, you may encounter an abundance of kangaroos, koalas and with a little luck you may even see glossy black cockatoo and echidna.
