Interesting

Only stopped for a coffee which was very good did not have time for a meal. The grounds are well kept with many interesting artfacts. The toilets were the cleanest I've ever seen.

We had a great simple lunch here today- toasted sandwiches for the kids and meatballs and salad for the adults. The menu was limited, but everything fresh and tasty. The property is obviously a labour of love, the garden setting gorgeous and the gift shop/gallery of a high quality. Highly recommended. Make sure to check out the photo albums documenting... More

The gallery is great and the gift shop. The place is owned by artists so it was not a surprising to see very artistic and... More

Took my children to Rustic Blue and had a lovely time. Late lunch sitting on the back porch on a comfy lounge, nice food and lovely atmosphere. Gallery is a must for visitors to Kangaroo Island.

after a 200 km drive and extensive sightseeing at Flinders Chase National Park as well as Henson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary we were quite hungry and stopped at Rustic Blue - which, from the outside looks very nice. We should have warned when we say the totally overprices showpieces at the gallery - but we were too hungry. So we ordered... More

Decided to have a pitt stop and came across Rustic Blue. Greeted by the owners Smiley and Coralie, such warm hospitable people. An old shearing shed transformed into a lively unique colorful place with pieces of art work, jewellery and gifts. Drinks and array of homemade food can be bought. We ordered some hot drinks and sat out in the... More
