Southern Ocean Lodge
Exceptional Kangaroo Island

Exceptional Kangaroo Island

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 possess an uncanny skill for spotting wildlife including koalas, kangaroos and echidnas amongst the dense scrub – be prepared to jump out of the vehicle at a moment’s notice!

EKI 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. Key itineraries include an Epicurean Adventure, an exploration of the North West Wilderness and a day at the galleries for Art Lovers. A private tour with EKI may be arranged during a stay, or in conjunction with an arrival or departure from Kangaroo Island.

The Lodge joins with Exceptional Kangaroo Island to present two expedition-style offers including accommodation and two days’ private touring. Designed to maximise the Island experience over a two and three night stay, itineraries are customisable and seamless, delivering an unforgettable encounter of Kangaroo Island.
