After the culinary and wine scenes of the Barossa Valley, you’ll continue on to Kangaroo Island, where you’ll have opportunities to explore the natural wonders of this island along the southern coast of Australia. At Seal Bay, you’ll be able to get up close to the bay’s namesakes and John has included a nocturnal walk at Hanson’s Bay Sanctuary allowing for opportunities to spot many of the island’s animals that are active after sunset. While your days on Kangaroo Island will be busy, John insists that everyone should leave some time to experience a treatment at the spa at Southern Ocean Lodge, one of Australia’s most refined luxury lodges where you’ll be staying on the island. Here, from its cliff top location, your massage comes with Southern Ocean views.
