At the western end of Kangaroo Island, right next to Flinders Chase National Park, lies the Western KI camp grounds.
Upon arrival, it seems like a quiet place with little to offer. However the lack of distractions may be the very thing that makes this the perfect place for a holiday.
The pace is laid back and relaxed. We were welcome to cruise around and find our own camping site. We settled on one under the trees, just a little sun and shade, set up the deck chairs and began to relax.
There are walking trails and you can purchase a small stock of supplies in case you forget something. The prices reflect the isolation, so bring most of what you need with you.
The first night we stayed here, I couldn't believe how loudly the man in the caravan next to us was snoring. Unable to sleep, I got up in the middle of the night, only to discover some Cape Barren Geese snorting loudly underneath our sleeping awning.
The next morning, Dot the kangaroo set her sights firmly on our rubbish bag, grabbing it and wrenching wildly with both paws, I grabbed hold of her and a tussle ensued. Eventually we compromised, she got the corn leaf and I got the bag back (with a few holes in it).
If you like all the creature comforts, this may not be for you. However, if you don't mind animals sharing your life, a few spiders in the bathrooms and showers that don't stay hot for too long, you'll be quite at home.
The trick with the showers is to turn the hot on full blast for a few moments - this gets the furnace going and if it goes cold, turn it off and do again to restart the heater.
Check your shoes for spiders before you pop them on and don't leave food or rubbish around outside.
