  • We walked our way around many trails and loved this beach too. So uncrowned and raw with beauty. Just go and see for yourself, the wildlife, and winter is so specs in here.  more »
  • Teeming with tourists but doesn't detract from this beach and its drawcards. Secret passage; rock pools; natural children's pool and great surf. We always visit at least once. Addictive.  more »

Where to stay in Kangaroo Island

Although most of Kangaroo Island remains relatively underdeveloped in a commercial sense, you'll find lodgings that include everything from spacious suites to economical hostels in communities like Penneshaw and Kingscote. The most expensive accommodations on the island, private cottages and beach houses near the water generally require a two-night minimum stay. For something more flexible and less expensive, consider one of the local campgrounds, many of which offer powered and unpowered sites, as well as cozy log cabins ideal for couples and families with kids.
