On this Short Break Adventure from Adelaide to Kangaroo Island, you’ll enjoy guided bushwalks, abundant flora and fauna and a huge coastline primed for some at-your-own-pace exploration. Over a third of Kangaroo Island is protected in nature reserves, meaning this place is home to thousands of sea lions, koalas, birds and native Australian wildlife. Take in the scenery of the Fleurieu Peninsula, explore bushland with a local guide, walk among the sea lions at Seal Bay Conservation Park and visit a Heritage-listed bush property for a picnic. Explore Flinders Chase National Park and Cape du Couedic, where 10,000 fur seals call home. If you’re looking for a nature-filled weekend away from Adelaide – this is for you!
