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.

    The itinerary is quite flexible and tonight we will look for all those creatures who are more active at night time. Most of the wildlife is active after sunset, specially in Summer time. We will be able to observe kangaroos and wallabies grazing in to the grassland, shy possums climbing trees and mayne a solitary own flying around. At the end we will go to a secure beach where we will look for the little penguins borrowing in to the wild.

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 helps you 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 at your hotel.
