An experience, not just a resort
Nestled amongst 113 acres of native bushland on the entrance to Flinders Chase National Park, Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat is the perfect place for travellers to stay whilst exploring the “zoo without walls” that is Western Kangaroo Island.
Our aim here at the retreat is to deliver an authentic wild experience along with the creature comforts ensuring our guests experience the best of what Kangaroo Island offers. All our rooms boast outside decking areas where guests can sit and observe nature. Most of our rooms are simple, but comfortable and include the essentials; king-sized beds, tea & coffee making facilities, flat screen TV’s, DVD player, split cycle heating & air conditioning, private bathroom & showers. We also have apartments with kitchenettes; suitable for self-catering travellers or families, and we also have rooms with a bath or spa.
Our onsite restaurant stocks only Kangaroo Island made wines and our menu showcases a wide range of local produce such as; honey, cheese, meats, breads, olives, jams & chutneys. Our restaurant opens for breakfast where we serve an all you can eat buffet and then the bar is open in the late afternoon for snacks until our dinner service begins.
When guests arrive, they receive a map of our many walking trails and are encouraged to wander around our property and read the information displayed about the native flora & fauna. We have books readily available at the front desk – that guests are welcome to borrow.
We also run complimentary nocturnal night tours that start around sunset and last for approximately 45 minutes. And we also offer massages performed in a Filipino/Swedish style.
