In a huge milestone towards the highly anticipated reopening of Southern Ocean lodge, reservations are now open as works continue on the rebuild towards reopening on December 6, 2023.

The reservations launch was forerun by an online auction campaign for ‘first in’ stays at the property, with funds raised for three community organisations, The Maggie Beer Foundation, The Royal Flying Doctor Service and the KI Country Education Fund, reaching a total of $43,000.

There’s a lot to explore at the new-look lodge. Southern Ocean Lodge’s original architect Max Pritchard and his team have led the recreation of the property and have included all the features our guests loved best along with some considered extras, set for a new era of travel on Kangaroo Island.
