Kingsgate Haven were pleased to be able to provide accommodation to displaced tourists and emergency personnel during January. Now that autumn is officially here, the Kangaroo Island community is focused on recovery from the devasting summer fires and rebuilding homes, businesses and tourism. At Kingsgate we have been preparing to open our restaurant to the public for coffee/tea, cakes and light meals. April school holidays is our planned start date.
Tony and Jane Scammell are your new hosts at Kingsgate Haven, and looking forward to sharing the delights of Kangaroo Island with you.
