Emu Bay Lavender

Worthy of a special occasion and a special treat, you will capture the scent of soothing lavender as you walk through the fields to the unique cafe and gift shop.

Emu Bay Lavenders humble story began in 2001 where a small lavender garden was first planted. The Farm now runs over 51 acres of land and is owned by a 5th generation Kangaroo Island family who strive to create an experience for each and every guest. The farm has an estimated 7500 lavender plants including 12 different species of Lavandula Angustifolia and Lavandula Intermedia.
We are a working lavender farm now open all year round. Busy planting, pruning, propagating and making our in-house Emu Bay Lavender products. Our place is just minutes away from one of Kangaroo Island finest beaches Emu Bay, with crystal clear shallows, rolling hills and even a pod of dolphins.
The shop holds our gifts and café, where you can indulge and experience our range of unique lavender products, homecooked style lunch and lavender-inspired food/drinks. The eating area is tranquil and peaceful adding to the relaxing atmosphere overlooking our pond area, lavender fields, general farming and a salt lagoon in the background.
During summer the lavender flowers are in full bloom and we begin harvesting. Kangaroo Islands famous Ligurian bees are busy pollinating the flowers and begin producing our signature lavender honey. We hand harvest and strip around 8000 bunches per year of lavender flower and currently distill around 8 kilograms of lavender essential oil which is use in all our handmade therapeutic products. It takes about 100 kilogram of flowers to produce just one kilogram of oil.
Emu Bay Lavender is continually expanding and working to improve and increase the farms efficiency and sustainability.
