Welcome to Don’t Delay Your Stay,’s campaign to support communities hard hit by this summer’s devastating bushfires. Many of these regions rely on tourism so one of the best ways to help is to visit and spend time in some of the most beautiful parts of our great country.

Top rated beach hidden from view

Secluded Stokes Bay is a hidden paradise on Kangaroo Island’s north coast, waiting to be discovered.

If your idea of a dream holiday is relaxing beachside, this picture-perfect cove is an idyllic spot to throw down a towel. You enter via a little labyrinth of caves before emerging onto some of the whitest sand and clearest water in Australia.

The town was devastated by the bushfires in January, and several popular spots – including the Stokes Bay Bush Garden – were completely destroyed by the blazes, and at this stage have no intentions of reopening.

One business that has gotten back on its feet is the beloved Rockpool Cafe.

Once you’ve built up an appetite wading in the turquoise waters, head to the classic beach kiosk with seaside views and enjoy restaurant-quality meals as well as traditional beach fare.

Half an hour’s drive away in Cygnet River, you’ll find Kangaroo Island Spirits, South Australia’s first boutique distillery.

Partners Jon and Sarah Lark produce a range of high quality liqueurs and spirits – including vodka and gin – with an emphasis on using local and native ingredients.

End your day unwinding in luxury at Stowaway Kangaroo Island or continue to another of Kangaroo Island’s pristine beaches and check into Lifetime Private Retreats at Snellings Beach.
