Kangaroo Island Eucalyptus Oil and Products

About Us

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus and Craft Gallery
Farmers and Distillers of 100% Pure Australian Eucalyptus Oil

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus The Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil distillery and retail shop has been a popular Kangaroo Island tourist attraction since 1991, and we are now the only Eucalyptus Oil distillery in South Australia.

We manufacture 100% pure Australian Eucalyptus Oil, which we sell – along with a large range of associated products – through our online store.

Orders for goods can be placed online, or via phone, fax or email, and price lists are available by request for easier ordering. Orders around the Island are regularly home delivered at no extra charge.

The business provides a craft gallery retail area not only for our own art, craft and products, but also provides an outlet for over 30 other local producers. We have a huge range of locally produced souvenirs available for you to buy, and we market a range of other Australian made oils and products. Emu Ridge proudly employs many Kangaroo Island locals.

Emu Ridge has around 40,000 visitors per year. Guided tours of the distillery are available during school holidays and tours for groups are available all year round. Bookings are essential. People visit Emu Ridge to experience the heart and soul of the Australian spirit and marvel at our developments; some come back every few years to see what is new.

Sixty five percent of our customers are international. We are proud to provide additional services to meet their requirements, with information sheets in 13 different languages.

We offer self guided tours all year round, which are very handy for families and international visitors, or visitors that may not have time for a guided tour but would still like to see the distillery.

All visitors are offered a short DVD that is available in 6 languages; this gives visitors more of an insight into our business. We also have a lovely display of history and memorabilia in our retail shop.

Our business also houses the Cellar Door for Rookery Wines, complimented with a full bar license, Cheese Platters and Tea and Coffee facilities. For your comfort we provide public and disabled toilets, a shelter and BBQ area, as well as a general picnic area.

We built our business from scratch with our children Mel, Tristan and Tiff, learning and growing, working and helping alongside us. We are proud to have raised in the process, three awesome young adults who are now making their own way in life. Mel our oldest daughter is now part of our business as well as owning her own. The other two still have a connection with Emu Ridge and Kangaroo Island and we enjoy having them when they make the journey home.

For Tristan it is a very long way to come home, as he now lives and works in the Northern Territory, but Tiff is just across the water in Adelaide, where she leads a very busy life, fulfilling her creative dreams. In addition to performing and creating unique digital artworks, Tiff now runs her own Kids Party business in Adelaide, creating amazing parties for all occasions.

When visiting the Island be sure to look up Mel’s website and book a luxurious pamper from Mel’s Balance, Beauty and Massage.

  1. Hi . I have been using your pure emu oil for at least 10 years +. Great product. There is a but . The last bottle of emu oil I purchased last month may June, is different. It’s like vegetable oil., and when it gets really cold it’s not setting like it used to . It used to go white like a thick buttery consistency. This bottle is looking like vegetable oil ,it also doesn’t smell like emu oil,my other emu oil from you usually had a granular feeling. Have you changed your production techniques. I had a little left from my last bottle, two completely different consistencies, looks smells, not the same .

    • Hi Christine, thanks for your continued support over the years, Emu Oil really is an amazing product. That is very strange, we have changed nothing, can i ask you to put it in the fridge overnight to see if it goes solid, the granular feeling you get is when it is changing consistency from temperature. It certainly is 100% pure. Please see this info and I look forward to your reply once refrigerated.

      Emu Oil is naturally a creamy semi-solid consistency and only begins to liquefy above 24 degrees C. When your Emu Oil becomes very thick simply warm it under hot water. It will return to its natural consistency again when it cools. As ambient temperature varies, the consistency of Emu Oil will vary from thick at cold temperatures to completely liquid at high temperatures. If left undisturbed at room temperature for a number of weeks, Emu Oil can naturally divide into 2 fractions, one liquid and the other more solid, creamier form. The longer it is left, the more separation occurs. Together, these two fractions contain the entire benefits of Emu Oil. Separated, they do not contain all the beneficial components of the oil.
      Some companies offered only the top liquid component, touting it as the “best” of the Emu Oil; however, we now know much more about the oil and research has concurred that both fractions should be present to be most beneficial for softening skin and reducing pain and irritations. When your oil separates, simply shake it together. https://www.emuridge.com.au/emu-oil-australian/

      • Hi Bev, I got the oil out of the fridge this morning and it had set.The above information is interesting. Thanks for your help.

  2. Hi Bev, I picked up some eucalyptus oil when I was on KI a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to get the little booklet that gives me more detailed uses for the oil. Any chance of mailing one to me (or is it perhaps available online somewhere?). I live in Adelaide. Thanks.

  3. Is there any chance that you have free shipping after a minimum amount Purchase. I am located in the US and purchased your products while visiting Kangaroo Island. I have had several friends try the product and would like to order some. Thanks!

    • Hi Alice,
      Our products are already discounted as much as possible and the postage goes by weight via the Australian Post app. Therefore, we don’t have free shipping sorry. Hope to hear from you again. Have a great New Year! Kind regards, Ella.

    • Hi, Hope you have a great trip, we are open from 8.30 – 3.30 atm, if you would like a tour it would be great if you could book an approx time otherwise we offer Self Guided tours at anytime. We look forward to your visit. Regards Bev

  5. We bought a litre of Emu Oil while we were on KI.

    Can you mail another litre to Canada? Postcode V8S3G6

    How much would it cost. I still have an AUD account.

  6. We have almost run out of your eucalyptus oil. Do you have stockists in Adelaide? I am reluctant to pay exorbitant postage prices. I’d like at least 1 litre – would consider buying more

    • Hi Pam, thanks for your enquiry. We only sell our products direct so that our customers do get better prices. I will send you an email re prices and postage. Kind regards Bev
