Activity adventure | Beach | Eco-tourism | Natural world | Wildlife


Kangaroo Island is often referred to as Australia’s ‘Galápagos’ and this wildlife-rich environment, located just off the coast of South Australia, is easily reached with a 25-minute flight from Adelaide. Idyllically located on the cliffd above Hansen Bay on the edge of the Flinders Chase National Park, Southern Ocean Lodge is a 50-minute transfer from Kingscote airport. Alternatively, for those who like to travel under their own steam, you can take the 45-minute ferry crossing from Cape Jervis on the mainland and the lodge is a 90-minute drive once you arrive on the island. The lodge blends seamlessly with its pristine environment, curving along a ridge line, with uninterrupted, panoramic views of the mighty Southern Ocean...next stop, Antarctica!


Fully redesigned after the bush fires of summer 2020, the all-new Southern Ocean Lodge features 25 luxurious suites, which fan out along the curve of cliff top each with floor-to-ceiling glass walls opening to private outdoor terraces and a truly spectacular view. Interiors feature super comfy beds, limestone fireplaces, sunken lounges and in suite mini bars, which are packed with local goodies and treats. Generously sized bathrooms feature more of those floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as rain showers, twin sinks and freestanding bathtubs – perfectly positioned for to make the most of the fabulous view. For a real treat, the Remarkable Suite offers even more space and features a private spa bath on the terrace. Then, there's the Osprey Pavilion with its glorious 180-degree views and horizon-edge plunge pool while, for the ultimate in ultra-luxury the 625 square-metre, four bedroom Ocean Pavilion has been designed as a standalone owner's residence, ideal for multigenerational families.


Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in all room rates along with the in suite mini bar, pre-dinner drinks and canapés and an open bar with premium wines and spirits. The wine list is extensive with labels from Kangaroo Island and South Australia chosen to match the seasonally changing menu. Furthermore, guests are invited to explore the walk-in cellar and take their preferred bottle with them to the table. Kangaroo Island is becoming something of a food mecca and dining here take inspiration from the abundance of incredible local produce. Dine in the lodge dining room or outside on the terrace both proffering splendid views.


This is an environmentally sensitive and sophisticated sanctuary with an unrivalled location. Southern Spa is a tranquil space with soul-stirring views and an exceptional range of treatments featuring island botanicals. The signature itinerary of daily guided experiences, which are included with every two night stay allow you to encounter the wildlife and explore the unique natural attractions of Kangaroo Island. In addition, for those that wish to explore even further there is a menu of bespoke experiences available.
