Travel to remote places can be sometimes make finding vegan options tricky but there are many vegan dining options on Kangaroo Island as well as some vegan wineries!

Vegan restaurants on Kangaroo Island
I’m just home from a lovely birthday trip to Kangaroo Island and found a few unexpected little vegan spots and options, I know people quite often ask where to go in KI so hopefully, this might be useful to someone… – Kat
Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil Distillery
Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil Distillery has a cute little cafe with permanent vegan options of a burger and a Thai salad (pictured and both yummy). They sometimes have specials of arancini balls and/or mushroom and tofu dumplings (all sold out when we were there ). They also do cider-tasting which is fun.
Emu Bay Lavender Farm
Emu Bay Lavender Farm offer a vegan Buddha bowl and can do a vegan smashed avo on sourdough – I didn’t try either of these but can confirm their coffee and fresh juices are very good plus it’s a really nice shaded outdoor seating area perfect for a hot day.
