Port Lincoln to Port Lincoln

It is one of few places that three large species of kangaroos can be seen together, and in amazing numbers. Together with over 100 species of birds, wild koalas at Port Lincoln and swimming with sea lions and dolphins at Baird Bay, there is almost everything in wild animal types all on a three or four day tour. What to bring: • We recommend good walking shoes and a warm jacket • Don't miss any photo opportunities • Swimwear for swimming with Sea Lions Please note: This is a tailormade tour and dates given are just an example.

You will be met at Port Lincoln 08:45 by your tour leader. First 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. You will pass Wudinna Rock as we travel into the outback to Kangaluna Camp. After a rest at Kangaluna, your wildlife experience continues with an afternoon tour to see the outback animals that thrive in this natural environment. You can expect to see three species of kangaroos, emus and many birds, returning to Kangaluna after sunset drinks at Kolay Mirica Rocks (organ pipe formations). Overnight at Kangaluna Camp.
Visit an ochre pit, once used by the indigenous people of this area, on the morning drive to spectacular Lake Gairdner. This lake is like a piece of Antarctica, with its glistening white salt pan, set in the stark landscape of the Australian outback. Here you can walk on the surface of Lake Gairdner and look north to see the endless white plain and the striking red surrounds and islands. Enjoy the stunning scenery with its vibrant colours and reflections. The red dunes along the lake are covered with flowers in Spring, unique vegetation and bird life and yield many animal tracks. Photo opportunities are endless. In the afternoon you drive through a changing landscape, including cigar shaped volcanic rock formations, and an abundance of wildlife. You may see emus, red, western grey and euro kangaroos as we drive through the ancient outback range to Kangaluna Camp. After dinner you can enjoy stargazing with a computerised telescope. Overnight at Kangaluna Camp.
Morning is leisurely and allows plenty of time to walk through the bush near camp. This morning you will walk on Lake Sturt in the Corrobinnie Depression and see the array of colours and patterns in the bed of the old lake. This is a geological marvel, with many interesting rocks. Continuing around the lake to Mt Sturt taking short walks in the bushland, you observe a diversity of Australian plants and trees. Early arrival back to the camp gives the extra chance to spot some of the 110 species of birds at Kangaluna and the visiting animals, or relax in the stunning surrounds. Sunset drinks will finish the day at Sturt’s Lake. Overnight at Kangaluna Camp.
Early morning drive to Baird Bay where we 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, it’s an amazing experience. After lunch on the beach, we leave Baird Bay, visit Venus Bay and Elliston and enjoy the magnificent coastal scenery on your return to Port Lincoln.
