Stranraer Homestead, Kangaroo Island
Located on a 1290 hectare working sheep station in the centre of Kangaroo Island, this delightful homestead has been immaculately restored to provide four beautiful guest rooms – each decorated and furnished in a warm, romantic style reminiscent of the Victoria era, with polished antique furnishings and rich colours.
The property has been in the Wheaton family since 1911 – and was so named by Robert and Mary Wheaton because Mary’s ancestors resided in Stranraer in Scotland. Today’s owners, Graham and Lyn Wheaton, are the perfect hosts – providing a warm welcome, a special insight into life on their beautiful island home and, perhaps most importantly of all, delicious home-cooked meals (Lyn is a passionate cook and uses local Kangaroo Island products where possible, including herbs and fresh fruit from her own garden).
Although most guests choose to spend their days discovering the natural wonders of Kangaroo Island (we highly recommend specialist operator, Exceptional Kangaroo Island for this), it is well worth making time to explore Stranraer and experience life and work on a sheep station.
