  • Is there a shuttle available to get to the closest beach nearby? What are the other transportation options?
    Generally you'll get the most out of Kangaroo Island with a car as there is no formal public transport. Local drivers are available as well as excellent bus tours provided by Sealink.
    Answered on January 23, 2021
  • How can I get to the closest beach from the property?
    Walk for 15 minutes to Penneshaw Beach along the main road or drive and be there in 4 minutes. There is also a small beach in the Christmas Cove area which is less than a 5 minute walk. The ocean is out the front but the rocks are a little sharp.

  • Any chance we can pay extra to bring our small dog?
    Sorry due to the abundance of wildlife in the town, we do not allow pets at The Hideaway. Penguins can be seen almost all year (low numbers in Jan/Feb) nesting around the house and across the road down by the rocks after dark.
