How many days would you recommend for a bus load of year 9 students?!

by Melbournite

Hi KI,

What kind of accommodation is available on Kangaroo Island for maybe 30-35 year 9 students travelling by bus? They are about 14 years old and we'd be looking at taking them to varied places for different activities. Any suggestions? It would be in November. Thanks!

I would suggest that you check out the itineraries of the Wayward Tours group.

We tavelled with them and I can definitely recommend it for young teens too.
Marvelous experience.

We also stayed at a great hotel/hostel. They had dorm rooms and private rooms both, clean, rustic, new and pleasant. Great dining hall for breakfast as well.

Hi unaS,

Thanks for your tips. I've looked up Wayward Bus- nice website. Was the hostel you stayed in the farmstay they mention for the two day Adelaide-KI-Adelaide trip? Were you rushing from place to place on KI in two days- or did you stay longer than that?

We did take the 1n/2d trip, but spent an extra night there on our own to see the fairy penguins. They let us return the next day on the ferry and coach w/o paying extra for that (for travelling separately, w/o the group).

With the group we stayed at a motel/hostel, not a farm - Kangaroo Island Wilderness Resort - it was very near to where we stopped to watch the wild Koalas at sunset. They may have changed that since.

For the extra night, on our own, we chose a nice B&B - Seaview Lodge, Lot 3 Willoughby in Penneshaw - not suitable for a group, I think.

There was very little rushing. We spent sufficient time at each stop to get a pretty good intro and to spend some time walking around. The only stop that was perhaps a bit too short for me was the Remarkable Rocks in Flinders Chase Nat'l Park.

For me the highlight was the Seal Reserve where one gets up close to them and sees them in their natural state, not in a zoo, performing.

Travel Tips for Kangaroo Island

Selecting a Tour

by Kathrin_E

In case your travel time is limited, a tour can be a good option to see a bit of the island in a carefree way. There are plenty of different tour operators, there are 1-, 2- and 3-day tours, there are expensive private tours for two or four people and there are affordable coach tours, tours starting on the island and tours that include transfer from and to Adelaide.

Check carefully what is on the itinerary of the tour. Many involve stops at a sheep dairy, honey farm, eucalyptus oil press or whatever - places where you are expected to shop. They might be interesting to see if you have enough time but with just one or two days on an island full of natural wonders you may consider shopping or long lunch breaks at remote restaurants a waste of your precious time.

Sealink, for example, the company that also operates the ferry from Jervis Bay, offers two different day tours. One is of the 'shopping' type (which Germans would call Kaffeefahrt) with honey farm and eucalyptus oil press. Ours, however, was a different and much better one that was sightseeing only and no shopping. We booked the tour with Gray Lines but it turned out to be a Sealink tour.

Animal orphanage

by kyoub

Emu Ridge Is the only commercial Eucalyptus Oil Distillery left in South Australia and are totally self sufficient. generating their power by steam.
They also have an animal orphanage there, So many Kangaroos and other animals are hit by cars leaving babies behind.
they take them and keep them until they are adults and some can go back in the wild.
There was a baby Kangaroo in the gift shop when we were there. It's momma had been killed on the road.

Bird Sanctuary

by kyoub

DUCK LAGOON BIRD SANCTUARY
is home to a range of birdlife, including Mountain, Shell and Musk Ducks, Ibis and Spoonbill. Wooden hides allow close viewing without interrupting birdlife.
We saw several Black Swans with their chicks.

Pelican feeding

by kyoub

Halfway between Kingscote and Penneshaw is a settlement called American River.
It was named by the American sealers who built a trading schooner there in 1804.
The calm bay is called Pelican Lagoon.
Daily at 4:30pm you can watch the pelican feeding down on the wharf..

.

Seal Bay

by didgeridorien

It's actually Sea Lions that live in this bay. You can have a walk around on the beach and visit the visitors centre. This place can be very touristic, our tour guide knew when to come. If you want it to be quit, you'll have to come really early.
