Kangaroo Beach Lodges were built in 2010 and sit on De Mole River Farm, which is an 8,000 acre working cattle estate.

  6. Day 5 - 7 Kangaroo Island

    The next three days are yours to do as much or as little as you please. Explore the island at your own pace or we can arrange for an expert local guide to accompany you for a day or two. The island covers almost 4,500 sq km and is abundant with native wildlife, natural beauty and it feels like you are a million miles away from civilisation. The island is known as Australia's Galapagos and it is a birdwatchers paradise with over 275 known species, many of which are easily seen in spectacular locations. Seal Bay is an absolute must where you will be privy to watching the big bulls, who seem to have been neglecting their waistlines and the sweet and more dainty females who are half their size. Enjoy a delicious picnic on a deserted beach, fish for your supper and barbeque on your private terrace, spot kangaroos, wallabies and koalas and wake up each morning to a magnificent view.
