Location + Surroundings
Situated right next to the beach in the middle of a wildlife sanctuary, this getaway cabin on the southern shores of Kangaroo Island in Hanson Bay, South Australia, is a nature lover’s dream come true. Right from their windows, guests can see the craggy coastline where the sparkling Southern Ocean fills the secluded cove of Hanson Bay and stretches forth to the horizon. However, the water is not just for looking at; walking only 100 meters from their front door, guests will find a beach that is safe for swimming.
Walking down a private beach path, guests can also reach an 8.6-mile stretch of the of the 38-mile Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail, which will take them to the appropriately named Remarkable Rocks—a towering cluster of rain, wind, and ocean-sculpted granite boulders that is among the island’s top natural landmarks.
In the wildlife sanctuary on which the cabin is located, guests will encounter a full array of Australia’s most unique fauna, including kangaroos, koalas, tamer wallabies, echidnas, opossums, and bats. In nearby Flinders Chase National Park, only 17 minutes away, they can see even more kangaroos and koalas, as well as platypuses and Cape Barren geese. At the southern tip of the park, they can also visit Admirals Arch—an erosion-created rock bridge where they can find a colony of New Zealand fur seals.
Other attractions in the area include Cape Borda Lighthouse, Cape de Couedic Lighthouse, Weirs Cove, Kelly Hill Caves, Kelly Hills Conservation Park, Little Sahara, Vivonne Bay, and Seal Bay. Home to southern right whales, the surrounding ocean is also an attraction itself.
While the area is remote, guests will find two cafes and a restaurant nearby, 15 minutes or less away. The nearest town with a grocery store is Kingscote, about an hour away, while Adelaide is about four and a half hours away via highway and ferry. Read More
