10 Nights | Departing Adelaide 6 Nov 2022 & 4 Nov 2023 | Onboard Coral Geographer
This voyage offers the opportunity to explore and hike South Australia’s wild islands, where forested National Parks give way to sheer wave-carved cliffs and sweeping white-sand beaches.
A highlight of the itinerary is a series of guides trekking excursions through coastal nature trails and to rugged island outlooks where guests will be rewarded with sweeping ocean vistas. Hosted by expert guides, including Kangaroo Island resident and well-known writer and photographer Quentin Chester (traveling on 2 December departure only), learn about the flora, fauna, and history of this remote habitat. Cool down with an invigorating ocean swim or enjoy kayaking in the beautiful turquoise waters at destinations such as Antechamber Bay on Kangaroo Island. Less-visited islands, such as Flinders Island and Wedge Island, offer the opportunity to encounter charismatic native wildlife – inquisitive seals, shore birds, bettong, rock wallabies, and many more. Along the way, enjoy the tastes of South Australian and indulge in fresh regional seafood and hand-selected local wines.
