Get acquainted with the wildlife of South Australia on this three-day coastal trip. For the adventurous, choose to swim with Great White Sharks and playful sea lions, while those seeking a little rest and relaxation can enjoy secluded bush walks.
Get active on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula and get among its beautiful scenery, fascinating native wildlife and plethora of exciting activities on offer. Meet some of Australia's famously unique residents, including kangaroos and emus on land, then soak up the serene ocean atmosphere while cruising on a series of catamarans, ferries and boats.
Day one begins with a 5am pick up in Adelaide. Head north around Spencer Gulf, headed for the Eyre Peninsula, driving via Port Augusta and Whyalla. The Eyre Peninsula is one of those great Australian secrets that many people havenâ??t yet discovered. Itâ??s teeming with some of countryâ??s most amazing and outstanding real wildlife experiences. After you arrive in Port Lincoln and check into your accommodation, head out to Mikkira Station to try and spot koalas!
Day two gives you the opportunity to be a little more adventurous! For those that dare, thereâ??s the optional experience ($395 per person) of coming face-to-face with a Great White Shark. Climb aboard at the Marina Hotel Pontoon and get a safety briefing from the skipper, throw off the ropes and set sail for the Neptune Islands. If the season is right the boat will often be accompanied by pods of dolphins and even the odd whale. Drop anchor at the islands of Thorny Passage. Groups enter a new, spacious cage six at a time. Get some (welcome) human company, while still enjoying plenty of room for prime shark viewing. Those not wishing to be quite so extreme have a choice of free activities to choose from. Walk the Investigator trail from North Shields back to Port Lincoln, visit the Railway Museum, browse the Art Gallery at the Nautilus Theatre, or try the Parnkalla trail.
For your final day you can choose to cruise out to Hopkins Island for one of Australia's most unique wildlife experiences; swimming with Australian sea lions. This memorable activity involves a half-day boat cruise out to Seal Cove at Hopkins Island, where youâ??ll don a snorkel and dive into the water after a short safety introduction. Wild but not shy, these new flippered friends will often bound into the water, keen to show you their tricks as they duck, dive, roll, race and somersault in their efforts to show off. There is nothing that can parallel the feeling of swimming among these inquisitive, gentle creatures.
