Middle Island Tour

A focus on native wildlife and secret beaches, the Middle Island expedition is complete with a private beach tour at Seal Bay and gourmet picnic lunch in an historic Shearing Shed.
Your Kangaroo Island Touring Company Guide, will collect you from your accommodation where you will begin the day by heading to the South Coast of the Island, for a private guided beach tour of Seal Bay, to see the endangered Australian Sea Lion in their “bedroom”.

Considered one of the best immersive nature experiences, enjoy the opportunity to see these playful animals in their breeding colony.

Observe the adorable pups, watchful mothers, breeding bulls, and adolescent males trying to impress, as they surf the waves, or shelter in the dunes, depending on the weather and time of year. Hear first-hand about the research that is being undertaken, and efforts to learn more about this endangered species.

Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch in the historic Eleanor Downs Shearing Shed, served by your guide and accompanied by South Australian wine. Eleanor Downs is our private lunch site, and a working farm still in the original Soldier Settler family. After lunch, your journey continues through Parndana, the central township of the Island, towards the magnificent northern coast of the Island, keeping an eye out for native wildlife along the way. Explore stunning Stokes Bay, recently named Australia’s best beach for 2023, before returning to your accommodation.
