Carly and Adam Bussenschutt have explored just about every inch of Kangaroo Island.
Carly is the third generation of her family to live on the Island, growing up on a farm on the outskirts of Parndana. The ‘mainland’ beckoned for school and university studies and employment as an agronomist, before she returned to Kangaroo Island and a farming career. As a prime lamb producer, Carly spent time abroad on a Nuffield Farming Scholarship in 2013 and has travelled extensively overseas on numerous personal trips.
Adam grew up on a broad acre cereal farm on South Australia’s beautiful Yorke Peninsula. A builder by trade, Adam has hand crafted many of the quality finishes featured throughout the Stowaway retreats. When he’s not managing his flock of 2,500 Merino sheep, Adam takes care of maintenance at Stowaway.
Carly and Adam are fun, enthusiastic, salt of the earth types and generous hosts. Relaxed and laid back, they will go that extra mile to ensure that your stay exceeds expectations – nothing is too much trouble. They are passionate about sharing this breathtaking part of the world with you – and letting you in on some of the more undiscovered secrets of Kangaroo Island.
The Stowaway Kangaroo Island concept is an extension of Carly and Adam’s passion for exceptional travel experiences and a way for them to share their love of the Island and authentic Australian hospitality with guests from across the globe.
