Experience the amazing giant cuttlefish on this 2-day, small-group trip to swim among them and their brilliant displays of luminescent patterns and colors. Learn about these colorful creatures from a marine expert, as well as go sightseeing through the spectacular wilderness of the Southern Flinders Ranges. You will also hike along the rugged Alligator Gorge in the Mount Remarkable National Park.

Day 1
Meet your guide at the departure point prior to 8am to begin your 2-day tour. Departing Adelaide, witness the change in scenery as you leave the city behind and travel through a landscape of fields and quaint country towns.

Stop briefly at Jitter Bean Oasis, a quirky café located in the township of Lochiel, to have a fresh cup of coffee and a piece of cake (at own expense). Right in front of the café, admire the pink salt lake before continuing on to Alligator Gorge, a very popular and scenic walking trail in Mount Remarkable National Park. Here, you will enjoy a gourmet packed lunch while admiring the surrounding bushland before putting on your walking shoes to explore the gorge’s beautiful rugged cliffs and amazing natural landscapes. The hike is a 2-kilometer circuit and is graded as moderate.

Then, get back on the bus to travel to Whyalla, the home of the giant cuttlefish. After dropping your bags off at your room, enjoy some free time, where you can explore the town, see renowned local dolphins, walk along the beach, or simply relax at the motel.

At sunset, sit down at the restaurant to a 3-course dinner with views out over the gulf. Later, learn about the giant cuttlefish and its changing colors and patterns, about their breeding antics and more in a fun and informative presentation from a marine expert.

Day 2
Start your day with a continental breakfast before heading to the bus to start your morning adventure. Stop at a local dive shop to be fitted with wet suits and snorkeling gear. On arrival at Stony Point, one of the best spots in Whyalla to see the giant cuttlefish, you’ll receive a full briefing before entering the water with your marine expert and snorkeling guides.

Swimming just a few meters from shore, you’ll start to encounter these unique and wonderful creatures in their natural environment. Observe their graceful gliding among the rocks and sea plants as you witness their changing shapes and colors.

Back on shore, change into some warm clothes and hop on the bus to head to the nearby facilities to freshen up (no shower available). Before hitting the road, enjoy a hot drink.

Next up is a short drive to the incredible Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden for a light lunch featuring local produce. Take some time to stroll around the Bush Food Garden where you will discover some of the medicinal and food plants that have been used by Aboriginal people for thousands of years.

Then, return to Adelaide through the rolling countryside of the beautiful Clare Valley wine region. Stop at the Clare Valley Wine, Food and Tourism Centre for an afternoon drink (at own expense) by the fire. You will arrive back to the original departure point in Adelaide at approximately 6:30pm.
