    This is the perfect place to stay for a great experience on Kangaroo Island. Kathy and Graeme are such a lovely couple who welcomed me and my friend Christine with open arms! We feel very lucky to have met them. They invited us to feed the kangaroos that you can see everywhere around the area - they came right up... More

    I'm still overwhelmed by the welcome we had at the Homestead. We stayed in Cathy and Graeme's own cabin on a B&B basis rather than the self-catering cabin. Location was perfect - very central for visiting everything on the Island. Our hosts could not have been friendlier and we feel very privileged to have been able to share this piece... More

    The cabin is less than 10km from Parndana and conveniently located in central Kangaroo Island. The property is a couple of kilometres off Gregors Road, providing a remote and secluded location. When we arrived at the cabin, my first thought was how perfect it would be for children (in particular) as there is so much space. The wildlife that visit... More

    We spent a week here and could have stayed forever. Sit by the fireplace and watch the resident wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas and even Kestrel. Our hosts Graeme and Kathy were helpful and welcoming. The homestead is secluded and perfectly positioned to visit all the wonderful island attractions. What a wonderful holiday.

    We chose Eleanor River as it was centrally located on Kangaroo Island and for the wildlife too - we were not disappointed! We only wish we could stay longer!! We had 5 days but I think you need more to immerse yourself in the beauty at staying at Eleanor River Homestead and Kangaroo Island! We really enjoyed feeding the kangaroo's,... More

    This was our first visit to KI despite living in Adelaide for over 10 years. We chose Eleanor Homestead for location and on the back of other positive reviews. What a great choice it was. The accommodation is fantastic and the location beautiful. Centrally located on the island it is also very handy to all the natural attractions the KI... More

    My husband & I arrived early evening...driving down an unsealed road...greeted by all kinds of nocturnal wildlife! Kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and so much more. We knew that we had found that "special" place. Beautiful sunrises with a wide variety of songbirds and kangaroos watching the sun rise as well, colorful sunsets with the silhouettes of kangaroos in the distance and... More

    We spent four nights here with three days -- not enough -- to explore KI. The cabin was huge for two, with a terrific kitchen, which we needed since Budget wouldn't let us drive their car after dark on KI. Each morning, we woke to kangaroos feeding in the field of grass-trees and in the evenings, we could stroll down... More

    We loved our stay at Eleanor River Homestead. We stayed for 2 nights but wished we had a little longer to rest and relax and enjoy KI. The cabin is well appointed with a great kitchen and living space in a cottage that sits in the middle of a farm. Local kangaroos graze on the driveway and front lawn of... More

    We spent three nights at the Eleanor River Homestead in January and absolutely loved it. We enjoyed the nightly visits from the kangaroos, and Genie the resident kestrel. And the night sky - holy moly - simply breathtaking. If you are coming from the ferry, stop in Kingscote to stock up at Foodland. The nearest store to the cabin is... More
