Discover Emu Bay and the surrounding unique Kangaroo Island wilderness

Emu Bay is a quiet coastal hamlet located on the northern side of KI with safe swimming, a fishing jetty and a boat ramp. The Sealink ferry arrives from Cape Jervis on the mainland to Penneshaw. From Penneshaw to Emu Bay is approximately 75km, all on bitumen, sealed roads.

Emu Bay is 15 mins from the airport.

Kangaroo Island is one of Australia’s greatest iconic treasures and a must for anyone interested in travel to unique wilderness destinations.

Take pleasure in the wildlife to be found, including kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and the sounds of abundant birdlife whilst roaming through natural garden like native bush land over the private property. Walk to the beach over the dunes to swim and relax. Enjoy sunrise or sunset and you will often see dolphins along the shoreline.

Fishing Charters can be arranged. Visit the local Emu Bay Lavendar farm next door for lunch or a morning coffee.

A Dune Escape serves as an ideal base for touring this pristine environmental island, due to its central location and its proximity to the main town, Kingscote where you will find most services.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing What a beautiful home this was to stay, if only we had stayed longer. House is clean and well kitted out and in such a perfect location. Easy to get to everything on the island. View is amazing and the beach is an oasis with barely another soul to be seen. My family had a ball and will definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect! This property is spectacular! Its so stunning, relaxing, homely and private. It was just what we needed. Kris and Brian, I can not thank you enough for being so accommodating. Even though you were in Europe, you were available to speak with after we were stuck on the island due to terrible weather. And through luck alone, we could extend our stay until the weather died off. We just cant wait to come back and enjoy a vino in summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Private, peaceful, perfect! The only unhappy part of our stay was when it was time to leave! We stayed for five wonderful nights and loved it. Tucked in behind a dune and out of the wind, a stunning beach view was only a one minute walk away. Sitting on the peak of the dune, watching the sun setting while a pod of dolphins played in the bay below, was magical. Kangaroos peeking through the windows, wedge-tailed eagles and sea eagles cruising above - how marvellous! Modern, clean and comfortable with everything you need, Brian and Kris have worked hard to thoughtfully design and equip the house. They have been attentive to every detail. Brian checked in to see that all was well and urged us to call him if we needed anything. Great people to deal with and they clearly wanted us to enjoy our stay. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We had a lovely 2 night stay at dune escape. The house was modem and clean and had everything we needed. We loved the view from the house and from the top of the dunes and emu bay is a beautiful secluded beach. We really felt like we had the holiday we deserved. Thank you Brian and Kris
