ARTICLE | With many of our outstanding urban experiences filling up quickly and well in advance, we’ve put together a new list of 5 unforgettable New Year’s Eve getaways to enjoy around Australia.
Former wildlife ranger, Craig Wickham has assembled an expert team of guides who want to show you the best of South Australia’s Kangaroo Island. The motto of Exceptional Kangaroo Island is: ‘Good food, good wine and wildlife in the wild’. Armed with his passion for tourism, conservation management and farming, as well as three years’ experience as a National Parks and Wildlife Service ranger, Craig has designed a range of day touring experiences that cleverly blend understanding, environmental awareness and hospitality.
Of course, with knowledge and experience comes connections and access, so you get to visit natural habitats to see the animals that have made Kangaroo Island famous around the world. In 2015 Craig was named one of the five best travel guides in the world by OutsideGo in the United States. Food is an essential part of every Exceptional Kangaroo Island tour. Depending on the focus of the tour, lunch might be taken in a private bush setting (perhaps a seafood barbecue of King George Whiting and grilled local haloumi cheese) or a picnic served on a clifftop taking in the magnificent views of the Southern Ocean.
