There's a sense of isolation on Kangaroo Island. The island was booked out for the Easter weekend but mostly the beaches and streets were deserted. Even when the crowds gathered at the tourist highlights they were gone again if you chose to turn left instead of right and got off the beaten track. The port at Kingscote has seen better days. This would have been buzzing when the sealing industry was in full flight. Accommodation on the island is limited but not so much so that every venture succeeds. This is the abandoned motel at the American River settlement.
