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 it’s 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 World famous Remarkable Rocks, Admiral’s Arch, Snake Lagoon 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

The Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail is now officially open for keen walkers to trek 53km across one of the most diverse, breathtakingly beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. See more on the trail by clicking here Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail Website

We are offering walkers the opportunity to be picked up at a different section of the trail, to be brought back each evening to the property. Here you can enjoy a nice hot shower, a fantastic evening meal, a well-earned glass of wine and a comfy bed to sleep in, before waking up to a continental buffet breakfast and a ride dropping you off at your next trail section.

When you book with us you can avoid the hassle of renting/bringing a car. Our accommodation packages include all of your transfers – as well as your airport pick up and drop off.

When staying with us you also avoid having to carry around a 20-30kg backpack as you won’t have to camp on the trail!

Once you have your dates in mind, get in touch and let us know when you want to come, we will book you in. All you then need to do then is book a flight! We will pick you up from the airport, and once you are here we will provide you with all the transfers necessary; drop offs and pick ups each day to wherever you are on the trail. Once you’ve finished the trail we even drop you back to the airport – so the whole time you’re here you won’t need to drive!
