Adelaide, Kangaroo Island and the Murray River - what a stunning combination.
Travellers will discover South Australia's amazing food, wine, wildlife, history and attractions on Captain Cook Cruises' new eight-, nine- or 12-day packages.
The combo packages include three nights' accommodation at the historic Mercure Grosvenor Hotel in the heart of Adelaide, a full-day Ultimate Adelaide and Hahndorf tour, the two-day/one-night Ultimate Kangaroo Island Tour and the three-, four- or seven-night Murray Princess Cruise. SeaLink coach and ferry transfers are included.
On the Ultimate Adelaide and Hahndorf tour, you'll visit St Peter's Cathedral, Adelaide's cultural boulevard of North Terrace and its university, library, art gallery and museum, as well as Adelaide Oval, Haigh's Chocolates and North Adelaide.
There's a stop at the Mount Lofty Summit Lookout for extensive views over Adelaide, before heading to the quaint Beerenberg Farm Shop to stock up on jams, condiments and sauces.
At Hahndorf, Adelaide's oldest German settlement, there's time to enjoy afternoon tea or beer tasting at the Hahndorf Inn before discovering the town's many cafes, shops and galleries.
You'll fall in love with the wildlife and landscape on the two-day Ultimate Kangaroo Island Tour including overnight accommodation and breakfast at the Ozone Hotel, Kingscote, and two-course lunches both days.
Travellers will have the chance to get up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas and other nocturnal wildlife at the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, watch sea lions in their natural environment on a guided beach walk at Seal Bay Conservation Park, marvel at the Birds of Prey free-flight presentation at Raptor Domain and learn how delectable Ligurian honey is made at Clifford's Honey Farm.
There's also gin tastings at Kangaroo Island Spirits and a structured wine tasting at the new False Cape Wines cellar door on the Dudley Peninsula.
No trip to Kangaroo Island is complete without visiting Flinders Chase National Park including stops at Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch to witness the spectacular regrowth after the bushfires.
Leaving the island, there's another night at the Mercure Grosvenor Hotel before heading to Mannum for a three-, four- or seven-night Murray River cruise aboard the largest inland paddlewheeler in the southern hemisphere, PS Murray Princess.
Each day features exciting onshore day trips, with visits to historic ports, Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal Reserve, a native wildlife shelter, a woolshed shearing show, guided nature walks, wine tastings onboard or at a vineyard and cellar door.
You'll get up close to the river, its 20 million-year-old cliffs and amazing plant and birdlife on the Dragon-Fly flat-bottomed boat.
Hearty three-course meals are served onboard, and you can join the captain for a general inspection of the wheelhouse, play some bocce on the riverbank, wet a line or simply sit back and admire the towering limestone cliffs and ever-changing river scenery from the cosy Paddlewheel Lounge or open top sundeck.
Following the cruise, a complimentary coach will transfer travellers back to Adelaide or Adelaide Airport.
The eight-day Adelaide, Kangaroo Island and Murray River package starts from $1917 per person twin share; the nine-day itinerary is from $2268 per person twin share; and the 12-day package from $3029 per person twin share.
