Kaniva is located 20km's from the VIC/SA border, between the towns of Bordertown and Nhill, approximately 40km's in distance from both towns. When driving through the township of Kaniva, Western Highway is renamed Commercial Street. We are situated at 134-136 Commercial St, East, on the Melbourne side of town.
We are located in a residential area, in the quietest part of town, 1km from the roundabout. This means that our Guests do not have the noise of trucks and loud vehicles going through their gears and braking to slow down and then speed up.
When driving from Melbourne, as you come into Kaniva, we are on your left. Approximate driving time is 4 1/2 hours (409km's).
When driving from Adelaide, go straight through the roundabout, past all the shops and we are on your right, just before the end of town. Approximate driving time is 3 1/2 hours (317km's).
