One Day Wilderness Wildscapes Tour

It’s all about nature in this one day tour exploring the island’s north coast. Be awe-inspired by the rugged natural scenery, spot animals in their element and get up close to ancient works of art.

Itinerary

Today your guide will meet you at your selected island accommodation. Along the way to your first attraction, we may call past KI airport to collect new guests.

We’ll then visit Rocky River, the headquarters of Flinders Chase National Park, where you may see koalas and kangaroos laze and Cape Barren geese graze, along with many other bird, reptile and animals species.

Within Flinders Chase is Admirals Arch, an impressive, ancient limestone formation on the ocean which has survived against the elements. The natural structure in itself is awe-inspiring, but you’ll also get to witness the active colony of the New Zealand fur seals, who frolic and play here.

Remaining in the national park, we’ll travel to Remarkable Rocks, via the spectacular coastline of Cape du Couedic. Here the forces of nature have carved extraordinary sculptures out of the granite. You’ll get the chance to walk amongst these huge pieces of natural art and take some impressive photos.

Prior to your lunch, you’ll take a short bushwalk searching for the echidna (spiny ant-eater) and observing the colourful Crimson Rosella.

For lunch you’ll have a delicious traditional Australian BBQ with potatoes, fresh salads, local KI wines and other refreshments. For dessert spoil yourself by indulging in our special pears poached in KI red wine. You’ll enjoy all this served in the bush, whilst nestled amongst the beautiful tall Gum trees.

Highlights include

  • Explore Flinders Chase National Park including Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks
  • Spot New Zealand fur seals
  • Feast on a lunch of local produce
  • See the stunning north coast beaches
  • Search for native KI wildlife

After your meal, it’s time to say hello to some koalas, Tammar wallabies, kangaroos and if you’re lucky, an echidna.

Next stop is Vivonne Bay, awarded the best beach in the world, with its white sands and crystal clear turquoise water. Take in the majestic scenery of Point Ellen where you can collect shells on the beach and possibly see a penguin in its rookery.

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.
