About the neighbourhood
Emu Bay is a quiet coastal hamlet located on the northern side of Kangaroo Island 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.
