Arrive into the beautiful city of Adelaide, the perfect spot to recharge your batteries after a long flight, where you'll spend 2 nights. Here you'll find stylish architecture, boutique shopping, sandy beaches safe for swimming, exciting arts events, nightlife, fine dining, and some of Australia's best café culture - all on hand to keep you occupied before you get ready to head to wine country. Your home for the first 2 nights of your journey is the Playford, an upmarket boutique hotel in the heart of the city and perfectly located for exploring its attractions. These include the Central Market, where you can whet your appetite for the foodie journey that awaits you with a selection of culinary treats from across the world; and the National Wine Centre of Australia, which, as the name suggests, is a great place to learn about and experience the country’s famous wines and get you geared up for your trip into the Barossa Valley.

With accommodation in luxurious villas, this is the perfect base for exploration of your surroundings, with 4WD tours, walking and mountain biking all options for exploring local landmarks like Wilpena, St Mary Peak and the beautiful Blinman Pools.

Departing Flinders after 3 nights, you’ll board a charter flight to Port Lincoln, a charming fishing town surrounded by the unspoilt beauty of the Eyre Peninsula. Proudly known as the ‘Tuna Capital of the World’, Port Lincoln is certainly a great destination for lovers of seafood, with a range of top-class restaurants; you can even embark on seafood cruises around the peninsula. You’ll spend the next 2 nights at Port Lincoln Hotel, an upmarket property overlooking the ocean which even has its own wine cellar and bottle shop, where you can sample the best the region has to offer. An unforgettable way to experience the Eyre Peninsula during your time here is through a customisable safari, where you can meet local fishermen and savour their catches; head inland to spot koalas, emus and kangaroos among the eucalyptus trees; tour local wineries; or even dive with great white sharks.

The final stop on your Australian food safari is Kangaroo Island, the country’s third-largest island and a haven for lovers of wildlife and food in equal measure. A third of the island is covered in national parks, where creatures such as fur seals, koalas and echidnas roam alongside the eponymous kangaroos. The island is also something of a gourmet hotspot. Making the most of the abundant marine life in the surrounding ocean, there’s a number of top-class seafood restaurants, and plenty of cheese and honey courtesy of the island’s many highly-rated artisan producers. Kangaroo Island also punches above its weight when it comes to viticulture, with several wineries producing acclaimed wines. You can experience the best of Kangaroo Island’s nature and gastronomy with a food & wildlife safari, taking in walks and drives in the national parks as well as visits to wineries and producers. You’ll spend 4 nights at Lifetime Retreats, a luxurious collection of villas surrounded by pristine wilderness on the island’s northern coast. Your journey has then reached its end, and you’ll be taken by private transfer to Kingscote for your onward journey.
