Day 1: Arrive Adelaide
Upon arrival in Adelaide, make your own way to the hotel to begin your cosmopolitan adventure. Known as the city of churches and home to renowned museums, Adelaide is bursting with arts, culture, flavours and entertainment. Get a taste of world-famous wine regions and award-winning restaurants right at your fingertips.

Day 2: Kangaroo Island Full Day Experience (B, L)
Early morning start with a boxed breakfast before your transfer to Kangaroo Island. This comprehensive 16 hour tour takes you to the best of Kangaroo Island’s natural attractions. Visit Seal Bay Conservation Park where you can walk on the beach amongst wild sea lions. After a two course lunch, spend the afternoon in Flinders Chase National Park for breathtaking views of its regenerating trees, plants and coastal scenery. Then, travel along the rugged southern coastline for a walk around Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch where you may spot fur seals. Conclude the day getting up close to kangaroos and koalas at Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park before your return ferry to the mainland arriving late at night.

Day 3: Barossa & Hahndorf Highlights Tour (B, L)
This full day tour takes you to South Australia’s premium wine region, to sample some of the Barossa’s finest wines including the world-famous Jacobs Creek Visitor Centre. Enjoy a sumptuous 2 course lunch and wine tasting at the Lambert Estate before winding your way through to the picturesque Adelaide Hills to Hahndorf, Adelaide’s oldest German settlement where you will visit Beerenberg and have free time to explore the many shops and galleries full of local arts, crafts and produce.

Day 4: Transfer to Mannum, Murray River Cruise (B, D)
Enjoy a pick up from your hotel at approximately 1:30pm bound for historic Mannum, the birthplace of the Murray River trade. Step aboard PS Murray Princess for a mid-afternoon departure and enjoy a Welcome Dinner as we cruise under floodlight to our overnight mooring. Keep your eyes out for nocturnal wildlife such as kangaroos, wombats, tortoises and egrets on the riverbank.

Day 5: Murray River Cruise (B, L, D)
In 1879 the first bridge to span the Murray River was built at Edwards Crossing, which quickly became the bustling township of Murray Bridge. After a hearty breakfast, choose to join a guided tour of the town’s historic landmarks and local attractions or go on a wildlife tour at Monarto Safari Park (additional cost). Those who choose to experience Monarto Safari Park will arrive back on board the Murray Princess in time for lunch then join us in the Sturt Dining Room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the Riverland. This afternoon, we continue our journey upriver and tonight we moor at Salt Bush Flat. After dinner, enjoy being entertained by our talented crew.

Day 6: Murray River Cruise (B, L, D)
This morning, join a guided nature walk where our guide will share the secrets of the local flora and fauna. Near Fromms Landing, we turn and head downriver to River View Lodge (near Piggy Flat/Coolcha) where your discovery vessel awaits for a wildlife tour. Travelling in small, personalised groups, we explore the maze of the river and the birdlife is amazing. Watch for darters, herons and egrets feeding along the river’s muddy edges. The afternoon offers a choice of bocce or fishing challenges before a delicious final dinner in the Sturt Dining Room.

Day 7: Disembark at Mannum, Transfer to Adelaide Airport (B)
Cruise back to Mannum where you will disembark after breakfast. You will be transferred to Adelaide airport arriving at approximately 12:00pm for flights departing in the afternoon or evening.
