1 Arrive Adelaide
On arrival at Adelaide Airport you will be transferred to your hotel (flights to arrive prior to 9.00pm). The rest of the day is at leisure.

  • Standard: Chifley on South Terrace (2 nights)
  • Superior: Stamford Plaza Adelaide (2 nights)
2 The Barossa

Travel through the city of Adelaide northwards to the world renowned Barossa wine region. Enjoy the change of scenery as you make your way into the vineyards of South Australia’s premium wine region. Your first stop is Pindarie, a multi-tourism award winning cellar door, which feels more like an Australian Homestead than a cellar door. The friendly staff share their stories behind the wines as you sample their famous blends in the heritage stables. Sit back and admire their stunning vineyard views while you enjoy some morning tea.

The next stop is a visit to Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop, an absolute must whilst visiting the Barossa. Learn about Maggie Beer – the cook, writer and founder of 'Maggie Beer Products', and enjoy tastings of her full product range including limited edition seasonal produce. You can also browse amongst her personally selected regional specialty goods, purchase one of her signed books or simply sit back and take in the view.

On arrival at Lambert Estate at Angaston, you will enjoy a structured wine tasting whilst sampling local seasonal produce from gourmet platters. Main course follows, and is a feast for the senses, with two signature dishes, salad and vegetables. You may wish to purchase a glass of wine from the impressive wine selection, or enjoy a coffee accompanied with their popular Chocolatier (Chocolate Port). Leaving Lambert Estate, travel to Mengler Hill Lookout for sweeping views over the valley and then onto the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company your final stop for the day. Here you will taste house made chocolates paired with Vineyard Road’s handcrafted wines which will be a great way to finish off your Barossa Food & Wine Experience. (B/L)

An early morning pick up from your hotel for a scenic coach journey to Cape Jervis taking in the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula with its vineyards, coastal views and rolling hills. On arrival, board the SeaLink ferry for the 45 minute crossing to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Here you will board your coach and your local Driver Guide will take you on a tour of South Australia's premier nature-based tourism destination. Your first stop is Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, for a guided tour and introductory talk about the history of the oil distillery and the chance to purchase some eucalyptus products. Then travel onto Vivonne Bay Bistro located on a 260 hectare bush property, for a delicious two course lunch. Afterwards, visit Seal Bay Conservation Park for a guided beach walk with a National Park Ranger among a breeding colony of wild and rare Australian Sea-lions. You' ll then visit another amazing wildlife attraction, the fascinating Birds of Prey free-flight demonstration, an interactive and educational display of native Australian birds and raptors. From here you' ll travel to Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, where you can get up-close to koalas, see penguins swim and play, hand-feed kangaroos and learn about endangered species. (B/L)

“Kangaroo Island”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2017 2 Helpful Votes

Impressed with AAT Kings organisation. Overall the hotel accommodation was good and the meals provided were of good quality. Main complaint was that there were no separate shower recesses - only shower over baths. I find it difficult to get in and out of baths. Perhaps when filling in future details there be space to check that need.

“Adelaide & Kangaroo Island Adventure”
- NSW, Australia Nov 2016 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

I really enjoyed my stay in Adelaide. The tour showed me lots of different aspects of Adelaide from its churches and cathedrals to the beautiful wineries in the Barossa. Kangaroo Island was stunning and the Aurora Hotel was great. I loved all the fur seals, the sea lions and the koalas. I really loved all the beautiful scenery and the masses of colourful flowers everywhere. Especially all the roses. The tour drivers were very informative and looked after us all very well. I will be going more

“Tour was great”
- NZ, New Zealand Aug 2015 1 Helpful Vote

The itinerary which was sent beforehand was a little out of date. Not a major problem as I took the recommendation to ring and confirm pick up times when I got to the hotel but just as well I did. The Chiffley was looking pretty sad and in need of an upgrade and I would have preferred to have been somewhere more central. Walking down the road in the morning for breakfast was a new experience and I think the whole choice of hotel needs a rethink. The tour was great and the hotel on Kangaroo more

“We enjoyed ourselves”
- Australia Apr 2014 1 Helpful Vote

When booked I thought we were on an organised tour with AAT Kings. It turned out to be a couple of tours by other operators and accommodation before & after so it was a bit confusing especially as our first tour was changed and we weren't notified. We enjoyed ourselves though and would recommend Stamford Plaza Adelaide as they went out of their way to help us. Also the trip to Kangaroo Island was wonderful. I will get a quote from Global Journeys for my next trip which will hopefully be more

“We thoroughly enjoyed our tour”
- United Kingdom Jan 2013 2 Helpful Votes

Our Adelaide/Kangaroo Island tour was excellent and your Global Journeys Tour Consultant (Kirby O'Connor) was fantastic. Being of a certain age we had never booked anything like this online before but Kirby made everything so easy and was so efficient, it was a pleasure to deal with her. The Crowne Plaza hotel and staff were first class and the tour guides in Adelaide and Kangaroo Island were helpful and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
