Leave the leafy terraces of Adelaide and drive south towards Cape Jervis, the mainland departure point for the 45 minute ferry journey to Kangaroo Island and the quaint seafront town of Penneshaw. The island shows nature at its wildest, with beautiful coastal seascapes, clear sea bays, and abundant fauna and flora.

A two night stay will give you time to explore the island, from the sea lion littered beach at Seal Bay to the rugged surf beaches in the south. And, of course, look out for the native wildlife, including wallabies and kangaroos, echidnas, koalas, penguins and over 200 types of native birds.

Leave the vineyards behind as you head north into true outback South Australia and the majestic Flinders Ranges National Park. The land here changes from green and fertile to dry, semi-arid bush. You will pass through many rural towns and communities on the way, such as Jamestown with its informative Historic Settlers Museum.

Wilpena Pound is one of the most beautiful spots within the Flinders Ranges and you have two nights here to relax and soak up the vast scale and shear wonder of your natural surroundings. As many of the attractions are away from sealed roads, we have included a half-day 4×4 tour of this unique part of South Australia. An optional helicopter flight over the Pound is also available.
