Spent 4 nights and wished we had the opportunity to stay longer. Great location, quiet and scenic, and not too far from the park facilities and the beach at Hanson Bay. The accommodations are rustic but very spacious and comfortable and an excellent choice for a family on Kangaroo Island. We were well prepared with supplies purchased ahead of time, and the visitor center and cafe in the national park were even better than expected. Even during the busy Christmas season, this location is quiet since most visitors are there only during the day. It's a long drive to/from the other end of Kangaroo Island, so if you're doing a variety of activities on the island you may want some time at this end and more time at the other end. Overall, for wildlife (wallabies, kangaroos, fur seals), secluded beaches, and scenery, this place is the best on KI!
