Day 1 Kangaluna Camp and Wildlife
Depart Adelaide Airport with Qantas Airlines arriving at Port Lincoln 08:45 to be met by your tour leader. First we visit a colony of wild koalas at Mikkira Station near Port Lincoln before travelling through farming land to Wudinna, population 600, stopping for lunch along the way. We will pass Wudinna Rock as we travel into the outback to Kangaluna Camp. After a rest at Kangaluna there is an afternoon tour to begin our wildlife experience, the outback animals thrive in this environment. We expect to see three species of kangaroos as well as emus and many birds, returning to Kangaluna after sunset drinks at Kolay Mirica Rocks (organ pipe formations).
Overnight at Kangaluna Camp with a bush dinner.[Lunch & Dinner]
Day 2 Lake Gairdner and Gawler Ranges Wildlife
Visit an ochre pit on the morning drive to spectacular Lake Gairdner, which is like a piece of Antarctica, with its glistening white salt pan set in the red landscape. Here you can walk on the surface of the lake and look north to see the endless white plain and the striking red surrounds and islands. The red dunes along the lake yield many animal tracks, flowers in spring, interesting vegetation and birds. Photo opportunities are endless.
Afternoon we drive through a changing landscape, cigar shaped volcanic rock formations 1600 million years old, and lots of wildlife. You may see emus and red, western grey and euro kangaroos as we drive through the ancient outback range to Kangaluna Camp.
Overnight at Kangaluna Camp. [Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner]
Day 3 Swimming with Sea Lions at Baird Bay
Early morning drive to Baird Bay we will board the boat for an unforgettable wildlife experience. On the 5 kilometre journey to a lagoon at Jones Island near Cape Radstock (at 160 metres, it is one of the highest sheer points on the southern coast of Australia) you can watch Bottlenose dolphins ride the bow wave of the boat, and join these magnificent mammals in shallow water.
Cross the bay to visit a resident colony of rare Australian sea lions and experience playing face to face with these agile and friendly mammals as we wade in protected shallow lagoons. You may very well be smooched by these animals. After lunch on the beach we leave Baird Bay and visit Venus Bay, Elliston and enjoy magnificent coastal scenery on the journey to Port Lincoln.
Depart for Adelaide on the 18:20 flight with Qantas Airlines. (BL)
