Enjoy a delicious four-course Mediterranean menu consisting of Antipasti, two small taste plates, pasta, two large taste plates and dessert, each accompanied by wine chosen by a Sommelier. Callum will talk through each dish, explaining its origin and carefully selected ingredients – all as it is being served to you.

For your final day in Adelaide, you’ll embark on a ferry journey to Kangaroo Island, home to a plethora of nature-based activities. During a full-day tour of this magnificent island, you’ll get to experience some of the famously picturesque landscapes this region has to offer including the beautiful beaches of the Seal Bay Conservation Park, as well as sample some of the delicious flavours.

Next, you’ll embark the paddlewheeler PS Murray Princess, at Mannum, where you’ll settle in for a wonderful voyage that harks back to the river cruises of yesteryear.

Sample their award-winning red and white wines and spot the flora and fauna of the surrounding wetlands on a vintage truck.

You’ll then sail to Swan Reach where you’ll head on a walking tour to the Swan Reach Museum, and then Sunnydale with its Native Wildlife Centre – a great place to see the local wildlife up close. After a barbecue feast on the river bank, choose from one of two nocturnal experiences that either take in the wildlife after dark or the marvels of the night sky.

Before disembarking back in Mannum tomorrow, you’ll also spend some time at the fascinating Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal Reserve, a sacred indigenous site that’s the ancestral home of the Nganguraku people. Learn about their culture and history and witness their ancient rock art.
