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

Emu Bay to Kingscote is 18km along a bitumen road and from Emu Bay to the airport takes 15 mins.

A Dune Escape serves as an ideal base for touring the island due to its central location and its proximity to Kingscote.

In Kingscote you will find most services including supermarket, post office, bank, tourist information etc.

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

"A wonderful introduction to Kangaroo Island" We had a fabulous time at A Dune Escape. Given the situation with the fires we weren't sure whether to come. Brian communicated regularly with us beforehand and answered every question we had. We are so pleased we decided to go ahead. Gorgeous house that had real heart. Stunning Emu Bay just over the dune and close to Kingscote and attractions. What more could anyone want? Thanks Kris and Brian.



"Great property in beautiful location" I would definitely recommend staying at a dune escape. The proximity to the beach is perfect and the place is well equipped with everything you could want for a getaway.

- Marsfield,


A Dune escape is in a beautiful location with expansive views of both the green hills and unbeatable ocean views. Perfect for KI’s stunning Sunsets and sunrises. Kris and Brian’s property is immaculate and so comfortable, they were the perfect hosts! Very highly recommend!

- Fremantle,


Location was spectacular and the property was modern. Very comfortable and furnished to a high quality. If you want to escape from it all in style this is the place for you. Lots of local wildlife, beautiful beach and not too far to travel to KI's attractions.



Stylish, and comfortable place in a truly outstanding spot--views to die for and maybe the best non-surf beach in Australia. Surf is 30 minutes away. Lovely hosts--what more is there to say?
