Emu Bay Lavender

Emu Bay Lavender’s humble story began in 2001 when a small lavender garden was first planted. The farm now runs over 51 acres of land and has an estimate of 7500 lavender plants including 12 different varieties of Lavandula Angustifolia and Lavandula Intermedia. The property is based in Emu Bay on Kangaroo Island which is one of South Australia’s pristine centres of agriculture, conservation and tourism. The business is owned by a 5th generation island family who are continually striving to increase the farms efficiency + sustainability.
During summer the lavender flowers are in full bloom and we begin harvesting. Kangaroo Island’s 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, and distil 10 kilograms of Essential Oil which is used in all our handmade therapeutic products. This may not sound like much, but it takes about 100 kilograms of flowers to produce just one kilogram of oil.
We are a working lavender farm now open all year around, and are always busy planting, pruning, propagating and making our in-house Lavender products. Our place is just minutes away from one of Kangaroo Island’s finest beaches Emu Bay, with crystal clear shallows, rolling hills and even a pod of dolphins.
Emu Bay Lavender Farm has a fully licensed cafe where you can indulge lavender-inspired, homecooked style breakfast and lunch. Our shop offers a range of unique lavender products.
