Your Itinerary

Day 1 to 2 - Adelaide

Arrive into Adelaide on your scheduled flight from the UK. Discover Adelaide’s colonial elegance, streets and the museums. Take a day trip to the world-class wineries or shop till you drop in Rundle Mall.

Day 3 to 6 - Kangaroo Island

Head across to Kangaroo Island for a memorable three night stay. This nature lover’s island has plenty to see and do. Spot wallabies and kangaroos; also keep a look out for koalas, platypuses, echidnas, penguins, sea lions and native birds.

Day 7 to 10 - Great Ocean Road

After a night in Adelaide you will begin your Great Ocean Road self drive. Winding through 300km of rugged scenery past the imposing Twelve Apostles rock formations and the rainforests, the drive is one of Australia’s greatest touring routes. With endless photo opportunities and superb scenery around every corner, this is a must do for everyone.
