We stayed in a cabin for 3 nights in a cabin.
Location was great for flinders chase (this was our evening sunset photo location), swimming at Hanson bay, vivonne bay & even seal bay.
We saw koalas right next to our cabin, wallabies, kangaroos & lots of bird life - fantastic!
The cabin was spacious, clean and well equipped (theres even a coffee plunger).
Very quite, no noise from other campers etc. No complaints.
Some cooking oil & salt + pepper in the cabins would make it perfect.
Nb Cooking a BBQ is an easy option.
As one of the cheaper accommodation options on the island, we would definitely recommend this

We stayed 3 nights at Western KI Caravan Park in the Banksia cabin. We were six people and it was tight accommodations. We didn't spend much time in the cabin as the location to Fiinders Chase and other attractions is excellent. The grounds are well maintained and the wildlife is abundant. There were kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and echidnas right on the grounds. The location is great but be isolated so be prepared to bring your own food.

We have just returned from 5 days (4 nights) at the Western KI Caravan Park. It is an awesome base to do Flinders chase; little Sahara; Seal bay and Kelly Hill caves and the Raptor Domain as well as quad biking and horse riding. The sites are roomy enough for tents and camper trailers and the place is alive with wildlife as the sun sets and beyond - which the kids thought was great. the downside is the layout of the amenities blocks (toilet/shower and basin) in one room means continual waits for showers......

This is our third year in a row to stay here. We use a site for our camper trailer and the wildlife, tranquility and access to local attractions is awesome.

Amenities are clean as a whistle and everything is maintained well. This a family business and they really care about their guests. The park is also spread out with heaps of space for everyone with some really nice shaded spots. Heaps of wildlife with koalas above you but possums and wallabies to rummage through your food at night, so lock away your food at night out you'll have some unwelcome visitors.

Stayed there for 3 days but wish we had longer. There were still walks and places we didn't get to see. We had 3 people in an non powered camp site for $10 p.p. That's cheap!
The highlight is all the wild animals! Kangaroos and koalas with in eye sight of the tent.

I'd definitely stay again.

Stayed here with my dad and we loved it. Haven't been to the western end of KI before so had not idea where to stay so took a chance with this place. Booked once of their cabins. It's right on the edge of flinders chase park. The caravan park is gorgeous, and in the evening, kangaroos are happy to wander around and feed. The cabin was spotless and more than adequate. Loved this park and would definitely stay there again. It is up for sale, and I just hope whoever buys it takes care of it as much as the current owners.

We stayed in the Maccas Studio for 1 night. It was spacious and reasonably clean, a lot of kitchen equipment, efficient heating. We just weren't sure what to think about a note on the door asking guests to leave the cabin as they found it - otherwise there could be a cleaning fee. There was a mop, a bucket and litterbin liners so it really looked like we were expected to clean it. Maccas Studio is specially designed for the disabled so the bathroom was basically one big shower space with water running everywhere and it took quite a lot our precious time to mop it up. We felt that for 163 AD we should not be asked to do the cleaning ourselves. Maybe we misunderstood but then the confusing notice should not be there at all. I know we could have asked but we checked in late and checked out early and there was noone to ask.

Besides this, our stay was pleasant and we loved the place. We saw some koala bears on the Koala Walk (thanks to the and loved the Lagoon walk as well - magical sunset views. Kangaroos and wallabies can be watched right on the premises, day and night. Best possible location to explore the Flinders Chase NP.
