Just purchased tickets to Australia for next month with intentions of visiting Kangaroo Island for at least three nights, probably four.
We (couple in early 30s, no children) prefer to renting vacation home to staying in hotels, and often vacation in secluded locations. Ideally we would like seclusion, but more importantly, we would also like an ocean view and wildlife near our porch if possible. So far in my research Penneshaw rentals appear to show the prettiest water, offer wallabies and penguins nearby, and be the most reasonably priced. Is there a better area for ocean and wildlife views? Is Penneshaw too far for a day trip to the Remarkable Rocks and other parts of the island? We hope to see as much as possible in our time there.
Regarding the weather, I realize that August is winter and one of the rainier months in KI. Are rain showers usually short or prolonged? I plan to take a raincoat. Do I need to bring rain boots too?
