DAY 1 ADELAIDE – FLINDERS RANGES (Monday or Friday)
Your Flinders Ranges Odysseys guide will pick you up from your Adelaide hotel around 7.30am to commence your 3 day tour into the majestic Flinders Ranges.

Sit back and relax while you travel through the mid-north region of South Australia stopping at the old copper mining town of Burra for morning tea and then Orroroo for lunch.

Enjoy view of Mount Remarkable as you head to the towns of Wilmington and Quorn. The majestic Flinders Ranges come into view as you get closer to the small outback town of Hawker.

On the way, stop at Kanyaka Station Homestead Ruins and see what’s left of this once massive sheep and cattle station of about 950 square kilometres before arriving at Rawnsley Park Station, your home for the next two nights.

Rawnsley Park Station overlooks the southern side of Wilpena Pound and provides the perfect base for exploring the Finders Ranges.

Late afternoon enjoy a Sunset on the Chase tour where you’ll watch the stunning sunset reflect on the Chase Range as you sip on local wine and enjoy delicious canapes. The 40-minute drive through the property provides a great opportunity to see native wildlife then finish your day with a delicious 2-course dinner in the Woolshed Restaurant, an authentic Australian converted woolshed serving delicious Modern Australian cuisine.

DAY 2 FLINDERS RANGES (Tuesday or Saturday)
Early this morning there will be time to take a 30 minute scenic flight with Chinta Air, to gain an appreciation of the scale and beauty of Wilpena Pound and the Heysen Range (additional cost – please ask for details).

Then spend the rest of the day touring around the southern Flinders Ranges including the local sights, picturesque Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges and peaceful walks taking through the creek beds.

Stop at the Prairie Hotel, recognised as an “unmissable outback experience” and enjoy one of their signature Antipasto Platters for lunch, before taking the Moralana Scenic drive back to Rawnsley Park.

This evening, join a tour of the old woolshed and enjoy a 3-course Lamb Tasting food experience where local lamb from the property will be showcased, and prepared in three different and delicious courses. Clare Valley wines will be matched with each course. The dinner will finish with South Australian port and local cheeses (vegetarians will be catered for).

DAY 3 FLINDERS RANGES – ADELAIDE (Wednesday or Sunday)
This morning farewell your hosts and Rawnsley Park Station and head to Mt Remarkable, where you will enjoy some morning tea.

Continue your journey through to the charmingly secluded Clare Valley, one of Australia’s oldest wine growing regions. With its picturesque, rolling countryside, unique geography, and climate you will see why it is a premium grape growing area.

Here you will enjoy wine tastings and lunch before returning to Adelaide, arriving approximately 5.30pm at your chosen accommodation

DAY 4 ADELAIDE – KANGAROO ISLAND
Early this morning you will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the Adelaide Airport for your flight to Kangaroo Island.

On arrival at Kingscote Airport, meet your local guide and your island nature experience begins with an introduction to Kangaroo Island.

Tour through several island habitats and see wildlife in their natural environments. Listen to the distinct sounds of the native birdlife as they chorus from the tall eucalyptus trees. As you travel the island keep an eye out for echidnas, wallabies, reptiles and wildflowers.

At the spectacular Seal Bay Conservation Park, your guide will escort you on a memorable walk along the beach. Home to a healthy Australian sea lion colony, walk amongst them as they bask on the beach or in the sand dunes after their extensive fishing expedition. With your guide you are able to stand at a safe distance to these wonderful endangered creatures and hear them sigh and watch them at play. This is a truly unforgettable experience — one that you will treasure forever.

Enjoy a delicious gourmet picnic style lunch with local KI wine in an exclusive Heritage-listed natural bush property.

Follow lunch with a pleasant bushwalk or a stroll along the beach. Explore the spectacular beaches of the north coast and enjoy a bushwalk. Listen for Australia’s rarest cockatoo, the Kangaroo Island glossy black cockatoo and watch out for the Tammar wallaby, in its natural habitat.

Later in the afternoon, as the day draws to a close, see the kangaroos leave the safety of the bush to begin grazing on the open pastures. Your tour concludes at your choice of accommodation for your overnight stay on Kangaroo Island.

DAY 5 KANGAROO ISLAND – ADELAIDE
Travel to the western end of the island and discover the Flinders Chase National Park, one of the oldest and most important national parks in South Australia. The park incorporates almost 20 percent of the island and much of it is a Wilderness Protection Area, home to a variety of fauna and flora unique to Kangaroo Island.

Enjoy the opportunity to walk through the park in search for kangaroos, wallabies and a variety of
birdlife. See some of the 10,000 healthy Long-nosed Fur Seals in their colony at Cape du Couedic and discover the formation of Remarkable Rocks.

These large granite boulders balance dramatically on the cliff edge, which plunges 75 metres into the turbulent Southern Ocean below. At Admirals Arch see where the powerful forces of nature have cut through the headland to create a natural geological formation.

Today your gourmet style picnic lunch will be served in a secluded bush setting.

By special permit, enter the Kelly Hill Conservation Park to see kangaroos and other native wildlife emerge from the safety of the bush land to graze on the open plains. Your tour concludes at Kingscote Airport for your return flight to Adelaide and transfer to your chosen accommodation.
