Self-guided Tours

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil Distillery is a family-owned business and has been a popular Kangaroo Island tourist attraction since 1991. We are the only commercial Eucalyptus Oil distillery in South Australia. We invite you to take yourself on one of our informative and interesting tours to find out the history and how the unique Kangaroo Island Narrow-leaf Mallee is grown, harvested, and distilled to produce our amazing and versatile 100% pure Australian Eucalyptus Oil and natural products.

One of our friendly staff will get you started with a delicious Eucalyptus and Honey sweet, and provide you with a map and informative booklet that will lead you through your tour. You will get to enjoy taking in the sights and information at your own pace.

Beginning at the shop, you will head out to the distillery, passing our two curious resident emus and the original Macgillivray Post Office along the way while enjoying the natural bush setting and collection of antique farm implements, and equipment dotted about the grounds. When you return you will get to watch a brief  DVD showing historical and recent footage of the oil production process and the history of what was once the major industry on Kangaroo Island.

From here you have the option to enjoy the local produce while you wander in the shop or try out the Cafe for a coffee, meal, or cider tasting, or on the back deck, you may catch a glimpse of some local kangaroos. 

Family bookings are based on children over 6, if you have children under 6 use the adult and children under 6 options. If you are a family of 4+ then select family and add the number of actual family members with the + sign.

Please bring proof of your confirmation email for your booking, and show one of our friendly staff on arrival.
