Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat

Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat is not just a hotel or resort, it’s an experience.

Nestled amongst 113 acres of pristine wilderness and adjacent to Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat is the perfect location to experience all that Kangaroo Island has to offer. The retreat offers a range of comfortable accommodation, walking trails, abundant wildlife and great food. Explore Remarkable Rocks, Admiral’s Arch, Hanson Bay, Snake lagoon, Cape Borda, Kelly Hill Caves and much more. With free guided tours, massages and a restaurant featuring local produce, experience all the creature comforts whilst immersed in nature.

Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third largest island, located 16 km off the coast of South Australia. Often described as a “zoo without walls” and likened to the Galapagos Islands, the island is famous for its abundant wildlife, natural beauty and local produce.

Whilst the island offers a wide range of features and activities, it is the western end of the island that offers the true wilderness and natural wonders. Flinders Chase National Park is home to the attractions name above and newly opened Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail.

Bask in azure crystal waters and trek across cliff tops by day, enjoy a massage then feast on local produce and Kangaroo Island wines by night whilst watching wallabies and possums in their natural environment. Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat immerses you in a uniquely Australian setting for an unforgettable holiday experience.

Accommodation

The retreat features a courtyard, flanked by cabin-like accommodation we have named Courtyard Suites, these rooms have balconies allowing our guests to observe the natural beauty & wildlife hub our courtyard becomes in the evening, whilst enjoying creature comforts. Other room types in the courtyard are the Bath & Spa Suites.

At the rear of the property and surrounded by a eucalypt forest is the newly refurbished Eco Lodge, featuring self-contained Eco Lodge Apartments and standard Eco Lodge Rooms.

Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail Packages

Since its opening in 2017, the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail has seen bushwalkers & nature enthusiasts from across Australia and around the world flock to Kangaroo Island. The trail follows the rugged yet breathtakingly beautiful coastline found on the south coast of the Island inside Flinders Chase National Park – one of the last few true wildernesses. The trail moves inland and covers sections featuring flora & fauna endemic to Kangaroo Island. Walkers can expect to experience close, uninterrupted encounters with some of Australia’s most famous wildlife such as kangaroos, koalas, echidnas, wallabies, platypus, and possums as well as 100s of bird species.

The 63km trail is sectioned off into 5 walks that are usually completed over 5 days. However, more experienced walkers have been known to finish the trail in 3 or 4.

Our packages range from stays between 3 to 7 nights and start at $393.75 per person and all include;
