Stranraer Homestead

Stranraer Homestead is a 3500-acre property offering a unique insight into life on Kangaroo Island, one of Australia’s most famous wilderness destinations.

The property has been in the Wheaton family since 1911, now run by your hosts, Graham and Lyn Wheaton, who executed a glorious restoration of the homestead.

The farm still operates as a fully functional property, (producing prime lamb) but its many landscapes are never less than beautiful – including the two large lagoons, which support over 45 species of birds.
Stranraer Homestead’s speciality is country peace and tranquillity; its central location on the Island also offers convenient access to the island’s many natural attractions, charming villages and stunning beaches.
Relax in one of just four guest rooms, all with cosy fireplaces, and indulge in gourmet meals served in the elegant dining room. The parlour is the perfect place to end a relaxing day with a glass of your favourite drink.

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is famous for its abundant wildlife species and natural beauty. Covering almost 4500 sq km (a third of which is conservation land), the island is relatively free of feral species allowing animal and bird populations to thrive.
See koalas in millennia-old native forests, walk among sea lions on pristine white-sand beaches, dive historic wrecks to see the famous Leafy Sea Dragon, watch Ospreys wheeling over rocky headlands…
Rich farmland and fertile seas have supported spirited island communities that are rich in history, culture and cuisine. Today, the passions of art communities, wine growers and artisan food producers help complete this extraordinary off-shore escape.
