Southern Ocean Lodge
Southern Ocean Lodge offers guests a complete and personal Kangaroo Island experience. A signature itinerary of selected guided island excursions is designed daily and included in the tariff, allowing guests to encounter abundant wildlife in a ‘zoo without fences’ and discover the Island’s unique natural attractions, often with exclusive access and always with a touch of luxe.
The Southern Ocean Lodge guide introduces sea lions at Seal Bay, hosts an exploration of the vast wilderness of Flinders Chase National Park and leads a journey through coastal flora along the limestone clifftops. A menu of Bespoke Experiences offers further exploration and excellent private charters are also available. Discover epicurean delights, visit local artists, or step off the beaten track to encounter wildlife in Australia’s own Galapagos.
“Let’s face it – with a lodge of the calibre of Southern Ocean on our doorstep, it’s likely to be some time before another superlative property arrives to challenge its supremacy.”
