“Please, don't tell anyone”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

My family and I called the wonderful Parndana Lodge in the Flinders Chase National Park for five days "Our home". For me it is the best and most wonderful place not only on Kangaroo Island, but of whole Australia. This is really an insider's tip!!! Therefore I only reluctantly tell you about it, because I wished it only belonged to me! There is no TV, no phone, no internet connection and no food store around the corner. You have to bring everything what you like to eat with you. But there is a big refrigerator and everything (pots, pans, cutlery) you need to cook fantastic meals in the lodge. When my family and I were there, it rained for two days cats and dogs. We used this time to play board games and talked, talked, talked. When the sun came out we walked some of the many trails that the Flinders Chase National Park offers. You will see so many animals!!! One day we visited the Kelly Caves and another we made one trip outside the Flinders Chase National Park and were at the Raptor Domain and the Seal Bay (both are extraordinary wonderful places!). We will definitely go back to Parndana Lodge and not only once!!!

A brilliant place to stay to teach kids what life was like 'pre-WIFI'... Relaxed 10 minute walk to Admirals Arch and a 5 minute drive to Remarkable Rocks. Great value if booked through Sealink as a package including ferry transfers. Stay at least 2 nights to really get the most out of it. Clean, comfortable, and enough 'mod cons' (gas oven / stove, fridge, microwave, and a brand new bathroom) to keep the whole family happy. We would go again.

We stayed at Parndana Lodge for two nights with friends. What a wonderful experience! Flinders Chase National Park is lovely, and these keepers cottages provide terrific access to Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks. The Lodge was well equipped and very comfortable. Don't miss the chance to experience historic and enjoyable lodging in a truly remarkable natural setting.

We loved the cottage: the old house and the modern bathroom are a great mix. Kitchen has everything you need like a plunger, microwave, sharp knives, a masher etc. Suited us to a T. the location is remote, beautiful, full of wildlife, fantastic. We didn't realise that the 3 cottages were so close together, you could have a huge amount of fun with 3 families, one in each house.
I wouldn't change a thing, just stay there for longer!

We stayed 2 nights in the lovely traditional lodge with all modern comfort. A perfect place to visit the western part of Kangoroo Island and to explore the national park Flinders Chase with ist great nature and unique wildlife, a huge colony of seals is nearby at the rocks. We enjoyed it very much, even the cooking in this old kitchen which has the charme of an old british house.

We spent 2 nights at the Karatta Lodge at Cape du Coudic and it was amazing. It was meant to be the highlight of our 10 day tour from Melbourne through Adelaide, and it was. My children aged 6, 8 & 11 loved exploring the grounds and observing the wallabies. And as we were the only renters at the time, it really did feel as though we had the place to ourselves. The kitchen is very well equipped and the bathroom very modern. The gas fireplace was welcome as it was cold and stormy during our first night. It did feel as if the cottage would come loose from its foundation at times during the night. But that just added to the sense of adventure for us. The staff at the Info Centre were very helpful. And there was so much to do in that section of the island, that we only ventured to the eastern bit on the last day out. If you are planning to stay at Kangaroo Island and want an authentic but comfortable experience, then stay here. It is a treasure.

Room Tip: If you are worried at all about the remoteness, then request Troubridge Lodge. That is where the em...

We are a family consisting of nanna, mum and dad and 3 children aged 9 years down to 22 months. We loved the cottage which had plenty of space for us all and had everything you could require for all ages. It was clean, with good facilities. The cottages are in a wonderful position down in the scrub which had masses of wildflowers right behind the lighthouse and only a short walk from Admiralty Arch and the spectacular scenery of the south coast which includes wild seas, high cliffs, rocks and fur seals. The remarkable Rocks are a short drive away. It was quiet but at times windy. It was only a short drive to the visitor centre. I can highly recommend these beautifully preserved cottages which are also good value.
