Bungalow Bay Koala Village
Eco-friendly place to stay
Declared Australia’s best backpacker accommodation, this low-key eco-accredited resort, with pool and family-style restaurant, has 2.8 hectares of camping area and 30 A-frame bungalows, 25 of which are doubles/twins. The others are dormitories. The young enthusiastic owners started one of the first recycling programs on the island, have revegetated a creek that runs through the area, and revegetated public land across the road. They help care for injured and orphaned wildlife, and have a focus on protecting and preserving the cultural and natural values of the area. You can do tours of the resort’s small wildlife park, where the emphasis is on teaching people about the environment and their impact on it, a guided bushwalk into the pandanus and melaleuca forest, or have a champagne and bush-tucker breakfast with native bush tomatoes, rosella jam, native honeycomb and green-ant tea.
