One Day Wilderness Wildlife Tour

One for the time poor animal lovers. Get up close and personal with our incredible Kangaroo Island wildlife with our Wilderness Wildlife one day tour.


The day begins with a meet and greet at selected Kangaroo Island accommodation or upon arrival at Kingscote Airport. Then we set off to Seal Bay Conservation Park.

There’s no waiting around for scheduled public tour times when on our tour. You’ll head straight down and wander through the seal colony with our experienced, accredited conservation guide, learning how these impressive creatures survive the rigour of the Southern Ocean.

Then you’ll journey further south and enjoy a pleasant, easy walk through the bush, coming out at the base of Kangaroo Island’s spectacular and vast sand dunes of Little Sahara. Climb the dunes and enjoy stunning views of distant bays and the serene, rural landscape.

From the South Coast, we’ll traverse the rural areas of the middle of the island via the Kangaroo Island Wildlife and Rescue Park. This park was set up as an ‘animal refuge’, where sick, injured, orphaned or unwanted animals could find a home. You’ll marvel at the colours of the Australian birds, pat a koala and feed a kangaroo. Your delicious lunch will be a picnic of marinated chicken and fresh salads, complemented by a selection of beverages. For dessert, you can indulge in some tangy lemon tart.

Next, we’ll enjoy the north coast beaches of Snellings and Stokes Bay, which are perfect for a leisurely stroll. Enjoy the sound of waves breaking on the pristine sandy coast, or if the weather allows, go for a swim in some of the clearest water you will ever experience.

Highlights include

  • Walk among the sea lions at Seal Bay
  • Feed kangaroos and hold a koala at the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park and Rescue Centre
  • Feast on a lunch of local produce
  • See the stunning north coast beaches

Travelling along the north coast we’ll seek out koalas and kangaroos near Lathami Conservation Park and take in the stunning coastal views.

Your day will end on a relaxing note, so enjoy resting on the scenic route as your driver returns you to your island accommodation or airport departure.
