Currawong Cottage is nestled in the dunes, adjacent to the coastal reserve.

It has its own track, winding through the scrub to the beach. You can hear the sounds of the ocean from every room.

The cabin comprises a large living area with 2 single fold-down sofa beds, modern, well equipped kitchen, three bedrooms one with a double bed and trundle, the other with a queen-sized bed, ensuite and ante-room, and a sleepout with a single bed and double bunk.

The main bathroom has an old fashioned bathtub, with shower.

There are extensive verandahs and decks with a gas barbeque and outdoor dining areas. You can catch the morning sun or settle down with a book and an apple in the afternoon after wearing the kids out on the beach.

A lovely rustic feel, with all the comforts of home.

Local Attractions

Vivonne Bay has everything for the beach-lover. Situated on the mid-south coast, it offers both seclusion and proximity to the many attractions of the central and western end of the island. These include Flinder's Chase Conservation Park including a terrific visitor's centre with great coffee, food & souvenir shop Remarkable Rocks, Admiral's Arch, Kelly Hill Caves, Seal Bay, Raptor Domain birds of prey & reptile displays not to be missed, Rustic Blue Cafe & Gallery a stunning collection of unique & beautiful items in the gallery/shop & a perfect place to relax & enjoy delicious food & drinks, in gorgeous, peaceful surroundings The Little Sahara giant sand dunes, Andermel Marron Farm delicious menu & local wine-tasting and Clifford's Honey Farm all your Ligurian honey needs & home-made honey ice-cream to die for. Vivonne Bay, which has been voted Australia's best beach in a survey conducted by Sydney University, offers safe swimming, snorkelling, surfing, and fishing. Nestled between Vivonne Bay and Seal Bay Conservation Parks, Currawong Cottage is a bushwalker's or birdwatcher's paradise. The lovely sandy-bottomed Harriet River is a safe spot for a cool-off, a paddle and a safe splash-about for children. Canoes can be hired locally if you wish to explore further upstream.

Wild Life

Seals and dolphins are regular visitors to the bay, penguins can be seen near the jetty and in winter, you may be lucky enough to see a whale. Wallabies, possums, echidnas and heath goannas may be seen in the coastal reserve and around the beach houses. The beautiful coastal scrubland provides an everchanging display of wild flowers and a haven for birds. Vivonne Bay is an excellent base from which to explore the island, or just chill out, stay put and let the beautiful surroundings work their magic on you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our stay Overall we enjoyed our stay, comfortable home, well equipped, but no TV reception or mobile phone connection and there was a very bad smell outside on the verandah right near the front door. Otherwise a great seaside cottage in a lovely remote setting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peaceful, private retreat Comfortable family-sized home. The kitchen is great, incredibly well equipped and modern, if in a somewhat rustic way. Having multiple rooms with double beds (well, a double and a queen) was great for the multiple adults staying here! (most places someone ends up in a single bed). A large kitchen table and comfortable couch area were great for a quiet night in. Beds were comfortable overall, although the showers felt surprisingly small (considering how they look). The location is really good, you feel embedded in the bush! Tucked away from the world it's your own quiet corner of the island. Watch out for the local roads, though! Unfortunately while we were there, there were mouse-issues (known issues, judging from the traps that had been set!). A note from the owner/manager indicating this would have been helpful, so we didn't lose some of our supplies to it on the first night!. Communications were generally lacking, especially regarding check-in and out, which was about the only down-side to our stay here. Overall a really nice place, good value for money, and we would stay here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic! What a wonderful property! Currawong Cottage was perfectly positioned on Kangaroo Island for easy access to all attractions. The house itself is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and fully equipped with anything that you could need. Its a short walk to the beach and in a beautiful location. We loved our stay and only wished that we had more time to relax and enjoy the cottage. A fantastic property that we would definitely stay in again if we were visiting KI and we will be recommending it to everyone we can!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic getaway Currawong Cottage is the perfect beach getaway for those seeking a comfortable, rustic home away from home. All the creature comforts (tv, dvd, air con, running water, washer/dryer) set in an idyllic location just minutes from a stunning beach. Highly recommended for families - we were two families with two kids each. Even the family dog had a wonderful time!
