Eighteen months on from the summer bushfire of 2020, the Southern Ocean Lodge site on the wildly beautiful coast of Kangaroo Island has been cleared.

Small teams of friends and industry colleagues helped remove remaining bush in a series of working bees called ‘Camp SOL’ led by our intrepid Lodge Managers John Hird and Alison Heath. The hard work, laughs, sweat and (happy!) tears shared at Camp SOL weekends proved powerfully cathartic not only for the land but also for everyone involved.

The rise of SOL 2.0 will be documented by Adelaide-based filmmaker Paul Ryan of 57 Films and the latest edit tracks the progress of Camp SOL – take a look here: https://vimeo.com/571535032
