About the neighbourhood
We are centrally located on Kangaroo Island allowing easy access to all major attractions.
Getting around
Although our central location makes for easier access to Kangaroo Island attractions, please bear in mind that KI is 4,405 square kms. At 150km long (93ml) x 56km (35ml) wide it is the 3rd largest island in Australia.

We recommend a 3 night stay to see the major attractions however we do have a 2 night minimum during off peak and 3 night during peak season.
