Picked up and our first stop of the day was to Clifford's Honey Farm. Kangaroo Island is the only place in the world where a pure strain of Ligurian bee exists. These bees originated from Italy, they are very quiet and docile bees so easy to work with. we sampled some Honey fizzy drink, which was very nice then the owner explained to us the process he does for the keeping of his bees and the extracting of the honey. Over 10,000 kilograms of honey is produced from his farm each year. We then got to sample some of his honey....yum!!
We then hit the road and travelled to Kelly Hill Caves. We were met by one of the parks people that took us down into the caves. At first I didn't like it as it was pitch black, but then the guide realised she hadn't turned the lights on so it made it much better!!! It was amazing to see the cave system and the limestone formations, very pretty..
We had lunch at Beckwiths Farm and then had a wander around spotting Koalas and wallabies. We then headed to Flinders Chase National Park. Flinders Chase is one od Australia's largest and earliest conservation parks. Quite alot of it was still recovering from the fires in 2007 but it was still beautiful. We arrived at Remarkable Rocks. These are a cluster of granite boulders that have been sculptered by the weather. We took a walk around them, it was quite cold and windy and a bit to close to the sea edge for my liking but totally amazing to see. A couple of them looked like they were just balancing on small points of rock!!!
Then we drove up to Cade du Couedic Lighthouse, we couldn't go in it cos it is not open for tours. We parked up and then took a short boardwalk to the coastline were we spotted hundreds of New Zealand Fur seals. At first it was hard to see them as the blended in with the rocks... Some where sleeping others where riding the surf and others playfighting with eachother. We continued along the boardwalk and down some steps where we arrived at Admirals Arch. As soon as we turned the corner we all just went WOW! It was just so stunning. It is a natural arch that formed by erosion from the pounding sea. This was my highlight of the day, most possibly of the whole tour. I just didn't want to leave but we had to cos we had a 40 min bus drive to get to Kingscote to see the feeding of the Pelicans...
When we arrived all the Pelicans were there ready and waiting. The guy feeding them came out with a huge bucket of fish and they went crazy. He stood there for about 5 mins talking to us about the pelicans and then he started to feed some of the seagulls that were hanging around, the pelicans didn't like that.... then it was time for there feed. He just got a mass hand full and held it out the birds went crazy some getting more than others. They just filled there beaks up and then walked off and swallowed the whole lot!!!!
Time was up so we got back on the bus and took the 40 min bus ride to Penneshaw to catch the 7.30pm ferry back to the mainland. I finally got back to the hotel at 11pm I was shattered....
