These comments are made without any liability whatsoever: We took the family to the rugged but beautiful west coast of Kangaroo Island and wanted a place that was close to the key sight-seeing places but secluded, comfortable and modern, could fit a family of 4 at a reasonable price. We found all of this staying at the 'rustic' Troubridge Lodge at Cape du Couedic. The cottages (there are a few to choose from) give you a real-life experience but with gas heating, electricity and large fridge (you can use the wood stove if you wish). We had the odd kangaroo hop by on the door step and the light house itself is 5 mins walk away. The Visitors Centre offers a great lunch 10 mins drive up a beautiful coastal road. Remember to bring your own food in.
