Itinerary in brief:

- 2 nights Adelaide
Day 1: Arrive Adelaide
On arrival into Adelaide Airport, you will be collected by a private driver and taken to your hotel in the city centre.
The rest of the day is at leisure to explore the city of Adelaide. Why not take a stroll around the Botanical Gardens and experience the beauty and diversity of the plants located there, both from Australia and the rest of the world? You'll feel a million miles from the city as you walk around the 50 hectares of beautifully manicured gardens and stunning architecture. The perfect way to relax on your first afternoon in Adelaide.
Day 2: Adelaide
You have a full day now to enjoy the city, so we suggest you take a tram down to the lively suburb of Glenelg, with its white sandy beach, charming heritage hotels, bustling shops and sidewalk cafes. Here you can swim with wild dolphins, snorkel or dive, or if you prefer to stay on land, explore Glenelg's history in the local galleries and museums.
Meet the locals at Cleland Conservation Park located just outside the city, feed the kangaroos, spend time with a koala and if you're brave enough head to the reptile area to hold snakes and lizards. Speak to your consultant if you would like to book this in advance.
Day 3: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island
Your tour vehicle will collect you from your hotel today and set off for Kangaroo Island. A scenic coach journey takes you down to Cape Jervis taking in the Fleurieu Peninsula and its stunning vineyards, coastal views and rolling hills.
A 45-minute ferry takes you to the island where you will visit Seal Bay Conservation Park, enjoying a beach walk with an experienced guide to get up close to these amazing creatures as they frolic and laze on the rocks. A two-course lunch in a bush setting is followed by a visit to a wildlife sanctuary and an afternoon in the Flinders Chase National Park rich in native Australian animals such as kangaroos, wallabies and koalas as well as spectacular natural scenery.
