Centrally located on Kangaroo Island, Pardana is a hub that provides access to the north and south coasts of the island, Seal Bay and Flinders Chase National Park.

Often described as a typical Australian country town, wildlife can often be seen on road verges and, in late winter and spring, they are covered with wildflowers. The Soldier Settlement Museum is also here, with a historical display of the early years of the development of the island’s heartland by returned soldiers. Parndana was the town centre for the Soldier Settlement Scheme, which commenced in 1948 when the country was cleared for rural purposes.

The town has a small shopping centre and bakery, churches and a community hotel which can offer evening koala tours by foot.

Parndana is on the Playford Highway, 40 kilometres from Kingscote.

The Spinners and Weavers Guild conduct a wool spinning demonstration and sell hand spun knitwear each Thursday afternoon.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
