Lighthouse Cottages

One of the three Cape du Couedic Lighthouse Keepers Cottages

The Australian Walking Company’s development proposal includes taking over the three Cape du Couedic Lighthouse Keepers Cottages – a beloved holiday experience for generations of South Australians and a cherished part of island life. There was no community consultation.

This was never part of the original proposal for commercial accommodation to be built in close proximity to the four existing campsites along the trail. The Australian Walking Company decided that their target market would not want to walk the full five day trail, reducing it to three nights – Sandy Beach, the Cape du Couedic Cottages and Sanderson Bay – none of them located near the existing campsites.
