Top tips for finding the perfect Kangaroo Island hotel

  • For a budget-friendly stay on Kangaroo Island, consider a B&B or holiday unit. The Fig Tree B & B in Penneshaw includes breakfast, making it even more economical. However, if you’re planning on cooking your own meals, self-contained accommodation like Baudin Beach Apartments will give you everything you need.
  • Travellers who’d like to be close to the main airport on Kangaroo Island should consider staying in and around Kingscote. Though the Kingscote Airport (KGC) is a little inland from the town of Kingscote, spots like Kingscote Tourist Park and Family Units will still place you within 10 km of the airport while also giving you easy access to the beach, shops and other amenities.
  • Travellers looking for a luxurious stay on Kangaroo Island may enjoy one of the more secluded waterfront hotels, like Mercure Kangaroo Island Lodge. Here, you can treat yourself to a spacious room with uninterrupted ocean views. You can also take advantage of the hotel’s pool, restaurant and bar.
  • If you’re hoping to squeeze in as many rounds of gold as possible during your stay on Kangaroo Island, consider booking your accommodation in Parndana. Hotels like Parndana Hotel and Ficifolia Lodge offer comfortable accommodation in a natural setting that’s about as close as you can get to Parndana Golf Course.
