  • What is the update with the bushfire on Kangaroo Island?

    As a result of the Kangaroo Island bushfires that started on 3 January 2020, approximately 48% of the Island’s mass was affected. It is, however, a very big Island (Australia’s third-largest!), much of the land is still open, accessible and very much intact. For current information about the bushfires, please click here.

    Here is a specific Kangaroo Island FAQ sheet from our local tourism association.

  • Has Ecopia Retreat been affected by the bushfires?

    Ecopia Retreat has been unaffected by the bushfire on Kangaroo Island. Our Villas and the Residence are all still standing, and our wildlife sanctuary and natural wilderness are very much intact.
