Swimming with Sharks in South Australia – Tonight on TRAVEL GUIDES


In this episode, it’s a wild and wacky, off-the-beaten-path home journey through South Australia.

From Kangaroo Island to the Southern Ocean and the underground city of Coober Pedy, it will be a week to hit, pack and stack it.

Our travel guides take their wheels and descend the scenic Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jarvis, where they board a car ferry to Kangaroo Island – Australia’s third largest island, offering a land of Natural wonders of green hills, pristine beaches and abundant wildlife.

They’d better make their own home in King Island Living Honey’s beehive, where they get up close and personal with nearly 10 million bees.

Next comes a visit to the Gin Distillery on KI, including a cocktail-making masterclass and, for real gin junkies, a lesson on blending your own drink.

For daredevils of all ages, guides head to the Little Sahara Adventure Center to sandboard the 70-meter-high sand dunes, then to experience the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, home to over 600 native animals and saved.

Next up is an adrenaline rush as they brave shark cage diving off the coast of Neptune Island, the only place in Australia where you can dive with the great whites. But first, they must survive the night sea voyage.

Chic retirees Kevin and Janetta were hoping the ship’s accommodation would be worth jumping into the sea with sharks, but instead they’re faced with the unthinkable – bunk beds!

Back on dry land with all limbs intact, our guides head inland around nine o’clock. Will they get rich in Coober Pedy? Trying their luck, they visit Tom’s Working Opal Mine, where anyone can play prospector for the day.

Finally, our travel guides take off for a scenic flight of the Outback crossing the vast breeding station of Anna Creek and Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre), the largest salt lake in the world and the largest inland lake in Australia. .

How will they rate their wild and wacky road trip in South Australia with five stars?
