Highlights & Reviews
- The Lodge
- The Lodge works closely with Kangaroo Island's multi-award winning, internationally renowned team of expert guides led by Craig Wickham at Exceptional Kangaroo Island. Informed with an impressive knowledge of Kangaroo Island’s natural heritage and great tales of the island’s history, EKI guides lead the Southern Ocean Lodge signature half-day Wonders of KI tour to the vast wilderness Flinders Chase National Park and have an uncanny skill at spotting wildlife including koalas, kangaroos and echidnas amongst the dense scrub along the way. EKI also offer a range of full day private tours to Southern Ocean Lodge guests seeking a tailored, private experience, a specialist itinerary or to explore further afield.
- The remote location is what sets this hotel apart. Perched above Hanson Bay on the south-west of Kangaroo Island, the lodge is the last outpost between Australia and Antarctica. The island itself is Australia’s answer to the Galapagos Islands – sea lions, seals, koalas, wallabies, and of course, kangaroos, are abundant across its 4,500 kilometres of wild terrain and coast.
- Each of the 21 suites are cantilevered to ensure every one has a prime oceanfront view. Glass walls extend from the living rooms to the bathrooms, with the hand-crafted free-standing bath in the signature Osprey Suite the pick. Televisions are all but absent, however every other mod-con is there, with luxuriant beds and sunken loungers raising the comfort stakes. Each of the suites are named after the different ships that have come a cropper on this island - for there can be few better place to be shipwrecked.
