Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third largest Island located 16 km off the coast of South Australia. Brimming with wildlife, Kangaroo Island offers an intimate experience with the Australian wilderness amid the idyllic backdrop of beaches and bushland. Nature lovers and walkers alike will regale in this ‘zoo without walls’ that has been likened to the Galapagos Islands with its natural charm. Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat is the only accommodation complex at the entrance to Flinders Chase National Park.
The retreat is the ideal location for exploring the western part of the island, home to Remarkable Rocks (voted number 6 best view in Australia) and Admirals Arch (colony of New Zealand fur seals). The retreat is situated on 113 acres of natural bush land and works in harmony with its natural surrounds. Management is committed to the principles of environmental protection and tourism sustainability and as we are operating in one of the most pristine natural environments, we require the assistance of our guests to ensure we preserve this environment for future generations to come.
The heart of the retreat is a natural bush courtyard where guests can relax amongst native flora and experience the multitude of bird and other local wildlife. We are a family friendly retreat and ideal for children of all ages. Bask in azure crystal waters and trek across cliff tops by day, then feast on local produce and Kangaroo island wines by night; Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat takes you to the center of Australian wildlife for a unique holiday experience.
