Enjoy a spectacular sunset and the peaceful seclusion of a heritage listed light keeper's cottage at Cape Borda or Cape du Couedic and be mesmerised by the continuous flash from the lighthouse beacon, warning mariners of the land ahead. Alternatively, there are rustic huts and other heritage cottages available in the park.
Cape Borda Lightstation
There are three types of accommodation available here. Flinders Light Lodge is a spacious, comfortable limestone cottage that once housed the light keeper and his family. Ideally situated with extensive sea views, the lodge sleeps up to seven people.
Hartley Hut is a cabin that sleeps three people. The hut originally served as the relieving keeper’s quarters. It’s cosy with sea views and abundant wildlife nearby.
Woodward Hut is a quaint, single room stone cottage that sleeps two people. It is Kangaroo Island’s most affordable heritage accommodation. The toilet is a short walk away and there are no shower facilities included.
Cape du Couedic light keeper's cottages
Parndana, Karatta and Troubridge lodges are classic light keepers’ cottages, large and roomy, built in 1907 from local limestone laboriously carved into solid building blocks. Magnificently restored, featuring slate roofs and polished pine floors, these three-bedroom cottages are heritage listed and can comfortably sleep six people. Tea and coffee making facilities are included in the roomy fully functional kitchen.
May’s Homestead is a heritage-listed, four-roomed stone cottage, built in the early 1890s. During its early history, the occupants were the nearest source of help whenever a ship was wrecked along the rugged coastline.
A one-roomed stone hut built for the mailman who would call and stay overnight once a fortnight. The cottage is located next to May’s Homestead, near the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre.
