    Would suit couples or two friends travelling together. Our farm is located 25km from Kangaroo Islands main town of Kingscote so your own transport would be a great advantage, although there is a bus going past the farm gate twice a day. Wifi is available & if you have a Telstra mobile phone you will have signal at the farm.
