The managers were outstanding as hosts. As a large group, they extended themselves to provide two evening meals, a first for them and a stepping stone for future requests by other visitors. The dinners were excellent. The facility was clean and tidy and within easy reach of Flinders National Park.

We loved this campsite, right next to Flinders Chase national park. It’s the perfect place for nature lovers. We’ve actually seen more wildlife on our campsite than within the park, because the national park is more dense forest. This campsite has some great scenery for watching koala’s, possums, kangaroos, wallabies, and all kinds of colourful birds. There’s no need to... More

This is an ideal location for exploring all that the western end of Kangaroo Island has to offer. We stayed 5 nights in Hall's cabin - it was adequately equipped and in a more secluded part of the site. The site itself is a haven for wildlife: there are koalas, kangaroos, tammar wallabies, echidnas and lots of interesting birds -... More

My son and I picked up our camper in Adelaide and made our way to Western KI in a day, with a surf stop at Vivonne Bay. By the time we arrived at Western KI, it was 8pm and reception was closed. However our hosts Mark and Fiona had left us a note so we could settle in. Immediately surrounded... More

Friendly hosts Mark and Fiona made our stay a very warm and welcoming experience. We took in all the Island had to offer and visited the wonderful Snellings beach on Fiona's recommendation. The park facilities are very clean and tidy and the natural wildlife is amazing. Those Koalas are so cute. Great camp kitchen to strike up a friendly conversation.... More

We loved this caravan park. We stayed in the log cabin for four nights and we wish we had stayed longer. The cabin was nice and clean and well equiped but the highlight of the stay was the wildlife.
