As the sun dips below the horizon, take a twilight expedition to meet the ‘locals’ and soak up the history of the early island settlers at Grassdale, a historic island property nearby to the lodge and where wildlife including kangaroos and wallabies congregate to graze.

Observe the endemic ‘Kangaroo Island kangaroos’ in their natural environment, while sipping premium South Australian beverages and sampling canapes featuring seasonal island produce. Surrounded by the quiet stillness of the bush, the lodge guides share the fascinating – and heartbreaking – story of the original landowners and their persevering spirit.


Providing great photo opportunities with these shy-by-day marsupials, Kangas and Kanapés provides a moment of reflection as the animals emerge from the bushes to graze on green pastures. As the last rays of sunlight cast a dusky glow over the historic cottage, a sense of the rugged landscape’s isolated beauty takes hold.

This signature experience is included in the tariff and is provided on an intimate shared basis with fellow guests at scheduled times. Private touring can be arranged at additional cost subject to availability.
