Kangaroo Island Explorer

Marvel at the regenerative powers of nature while exploring Australia’s third-largest island from the comfort of your floating base camp. Following on from the devastating bushfires of January 2020 this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see new life bursting forth, the return of koalas, wallabies, echidnas and dunnarts. Each day you’ll choose from a menu of activities, from swimming with dolphins and sea lions, to exploring wilderness tracks and participating in post-fire ecological surveys. By ship, Zodiac or kayak, encounter spectacular granite coastlines and fossils of ancient sea creatures. Treat your taste buds with local fare, from gin and wine to fresh seafood and honey while gaining new insights into habitat restoration from renowned experts. Local artists will share their insights, and local guides will introduce their natural world on an expedition you will cherish forever.

This expedition is subject to regulatory approval and only open to Australian and New Zealand residents.
