Why you'll love this trip
  • The island is known for some of Australia’s best beaches – hop your way between the white sands of Emu Bay, the famously stunning Vivonne Bay, and the secluded Stokes Bay, voted as Australia's best beach 2023.
  • Dive into the culture of Kangaroo Island, from learning about the rebuild of a 1803 boat to visiting a 'true blue' sheep farmer and his kelpie dogs.
  • Spend a morning with some of the island’s most delightful creatures, the colony of sea lions that have resided at Seal Bay for hundreds of years.
  • You’ll feel like you’re in the deserts of North Africa when you visit Little Sahara, impressing with rolling sand dunes (you can even surf down them if you’re feeling adventurous!).
  • Explore the unique landscapes of Flinders Chase National Park, including the naturally sculpted Remarkable Rocks and the dramatic Admirals Arch.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip includes time spent travelling in a private vehicle with your group. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. It’s all part of the adventure and a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. Please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • This trip explores Kangaroo Island over 5 days, taking in as many of the sights and experiences as possible. This means that there is little free time for independent exploration and plenty of distance to cover.
  • If you are looking for a shorter snapshot of what Kangaroo Island has to offer, you might like to consider our 2 day Kangaroo Island Short Break Adventure. Search trip code PZAI-C on our website.

Kangaroo Island is absolutely gorgeous and so tranquil, and our leader Kevin was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and seemed very engaged in the local communities and he clearly loves what he does. If you are a vegetarian, get ready to eat a lot of veggie burgers and vegans may need to bring their own provisions unfortunately though.

A really comprehensive trip of Kangaroo Island. We got a good view of nearly all the island, and saw many things. Well worth doing this trip.

Good trip. Scenic and Interesting Island. If a fellow traveller brings Covid to the tour, they will not be asked to test, or leave the Van. You will be stuck for days with them coughing and blowing their nose, in a sealed environment. Said sick person, only advised positive, after the end of the tour. Deliberate selfish behaviour. Intrepid Covid policy is Smoke and Mirrors. Guide will ignore illness. I have seen this guide behaviour on two tours. Maybe it is even Intrepid policy. I think we all suspect this, as a reality, ($), but it was demonstrated on this tour, and I believe half the van tested positive, 1- 2 days after the tour. I know you won’t print this, lol. Just want Intrepid to read it.

Kangaroo Island was amazing, you could even say remarkable! There was so much to see and do with some many unique industries sharing the island. The flora and fauna were populous, close enough to touch. The included tours were fabulous, and a highlight was the shearing and sheepdog demonstration.

Our trip to Kangaroo Island was excellent ! The island is still very natural and has not been overdeveloped for tourism. It was a pleasure & fun to travel in a small group and have a very informative tour guide.
