Hello and welcome to our world.
We, Ken and Kim, previously of Brisbane, Queensland, are the current
owners of Casuarina Coastal Units - and the American River Post
Office to which they are attached. Our aim is to provide a friendly
service and clean budget accommodation to all travellers.
Don't underestimate the time you'll need to see Kangaroo Island.
It's about 155km east to west and varies from 2 Km to 45 Km north
to south. Seeing the island properly is not a task for a day! As
much of the wildlife, which is one of the main drawcards, is nocturnal
we recommend that you stay at least 2 nights.
Most evenings we have Tammar Wallabies on our lawns and possums
in the trees. An echidna visits occasionally. American River teems
with birdlife including pelicans, black swans, robins, finches,
blue wrens, cormorants, herons, sea eagles and of course the rare
glossy black cockatoo which is also a frequent visitor to the town
a twitterers paradise.
Fishing is excellent here and fisher folk are well catered for
as we provide a dedicated area for cleaning and a freezer to store
your catch. Please let us know if you're bringing a boat so we can
try to place you in a unit with boat parking immediately outside.
If you have any questions about the island, please free to email
us. We are happy to help.
