SeaLink Offers New Scenic & Wine Kangaroo Island Tour for Market Lovers

  • Written by Brooke Tolar

SeaLink has partnered with Kangaroo Island Wildlife Safaris to launch an exciting new Dudley Peninsula Scenic and Wine coach tour on Kangaroo Island which can be combined with a visit to the islands Penneshaw Markets.

The fun starts with a ferry trip from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw before disembarking at SeaLink's Ferry terminal where the Penneshaw Markets are only a short walk away.  Enjoy the KI Farmer's Market and KI Community Markets which are combined to offer regional food direct from the producer, together with artisan crafts, arts and bric-a-brac.

Spend the morning meeting the very people who grow, farm or make Kangaroo Island award winning regional foods - taste the olive oils, wines and honey and learn why and how it is produced or try the Island chef's ready-to-eat Island produce and home baked snacks and biscuits.

Then board an air-conditioned SeaLink coach for a 3.5 hour tour of local landscapes around the magnificent Dudley Peninsula on the eastern end of Kangaroo Island.  All coach drivers are Kangaroo Island locals and provide informative, friendly and fun commentary throughout the tour.

The tour visits South Australia's first lighthouse - Cape Willoughby Light House, before heading to Zest & Thyme Cafe where guests can choose to indulge in home cooked foods, great coffee and local wines while enjoying one of the best views from the eastern end of Kangaroo Island.

Along the way relax on the coach and take in the amazing sights of Antechamber Bay and Chapman River. Look out for Kangaroos and Tammar Wallabies often seen lazing under trees with the occasional Short Beaked Echidna and Rosenberg Goanna wandering in the paddocks or alongside the road.

Another highlight is a visit to a local cellar door for some free wine tasting before returning to the township of Penneshaw or the SeaLink Ferry Terminal to catch the return ferry to Cape Jervis.

The Dudley Peninsula Scenic Coach tour operates on the first Sunday of each month when Penneshaw Market days operate and dates include 4th October 2015 (long weekend), 1st November 2015, 6th December 2015, 3rd January 2016, 7th February 2016, 6th March 2016 and 27th March 2016 (Easter Sunday).

A Penneshaw Market Day and Dudley Peninsula Scenic Coach tour is priced at just $112 per adult and $92 per child and prices includes a return SeaLink ferry from Cape Jervis departing at 10.00am and returning from Kangaroo Island on or before the 5.30pm departure, 3.5 hours of touring in a 21 seat coach and a personal commentary from the Driver/Guide.

Concession and student fares are also available.
