Small-Group Kangaroo Island 4WD Night Tour

Overview
Experience the sounds and sights of Kangaroo Island after dark on this tour via 4-wheel-drive vehicle. Venturing out into the island's wilderness at nightfall on your own is a daunting prospect, but the presence of a guide and the hardiness of your all-terrain vehicle makes it easy and stress-free. Learn about the island's nocturnal wildlife, such as boobook owls, echidnas, brushtail possums, and tammar wallabies.
Highlights
  • Guide gives in-depth commentary on nocturnal animals on Kangaroo Island
  • A small group ensures personalized attention and time to ask questions
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off for a stress-free experience
  • Travel in a 4WD vehicle, customized to the rugged terrain
What to Expect
After dinnertime, be ready for pickup at your hotel in Kingscote or American River. Climb in to a 4-wheel-drive vehicle, which allows easy access to the rugged terrain of Kangaroo Island, reaching places that traditional tour vehicles can't. As you head out into the dark, listen to your guide's commentary on the biology and behavior of the island's animals that are most active after dark. The drop in temperature and light after dark signals to many of these creatures that it's safe to come out; keep your eye out for Western grey kangaroos grazing in the open grasslands and wallabies coming out from the cover of small shrubs. Your guide will help spot even more elusive creatures, such as echidna, stone curlews, boobook owls, or even penguins in their land burrows. End the tour with drop-off to your hotel.

Hi rpdavies, I'm glad that you did really enjoyed the tour. Nocturnal tours are very popular because we usually see a lot of wildlife and specially in summer most the animals will venture out only at night due to the mild temperature and lack of predators. I'm really sorry if you din not enjoy the accommodation, unfortunately the accommodation was not part of the tour and we did not booked it. We can assure that in Kingscote we do have a lot of nice hotels and airB&B available and they are all very good. We highly suggest to check the reviews on Tripadvisor before booking any accommodations. Due to the itinerary and the time of the Nocturnal Tour we do offer pick ups only in Kingscote. Regards Luca

Luca has perfected a brilliant night tour - knowledge, entertaining stories, comfortable transport and even keen eyesight to ‘spot’ such a variety of animals. All those mentioned as possible were seen at close range (& not just fleeting looks). Even we Aussies learnt a lot
