American River Township on Kangaroo Island
The name is slightly misleading! American River is both the expanse of water and the township.
The town of American River, where Sunrise on Falie is located, is situated about half way between Penneshaw (where the Sealink Ferry docks) and Kingscote (Kangaroo Island's capital town) - each about 25 minutes drive either side of American River.
The River itself is popular for recreational fishing and sailing. Plus there are Oyster Farms producing beautiful fresh oysters due to the strong ocean tidal flows and fresh, clean water.
Docks, Moorings and a Boat Ramp make it easy for all manner of boats to launch or visit American River township.
The town is serviced by a General Post Office/ General Store, Community Shed and Oval, Community BBQ's, Recreational Tennis & Basketball Courts + much more.
A quiet town, American River is the perfect place to unwind. Go for a walk around the beaches. Visit the local Oyster farm and buy some fresh Oysters for dinner. Head down to the dock on a Friday night for dinner at "The Shed" with the locals.
And if you like fishing, American River is renowned for its protected waters, abundant with Whiting and other species of fish. If you get an opportunity to get out on a boat, you won't be disappointed with your catch!
Take the time to enjoy the wildlife around American River. Locals include the Kangaroo Island kangaroo, Tammar Wallaby, Pygmy Possum, Brushtail Possum, Echidna, Pacific Barn Owl, Southern Boobook Owl and the endangered Glossy black Cockatoo.Find out More! Send us an Email!
