Our commitment to the environment

The Baillie Lodges environmental commitment is best expressed by each lodge’s interaction with its local natural and cultural surroundings. View our sustainability policy.

The Baillie Lodges environmental commitment is best expressed by each lodge’s interaction with its natural environment, the local community and its culture. A dynamic environmental management plan featuring continually evolving technologies steers lodge operations and ultimately enhances each guest’s experience. How we support travelling for good.



A 20-metre wilderness buffer is maintained around the lodge and the area has been cleverly planted with fire-retardant native succulents and Kangaroo Island’s own endemic juniper. The bushland and coastal wilderness that surrounds Southern Ocean Lodge is protected to safeguard it for its wildlife residents and for future generations.



Investment in a large reverse osmosis system sees the use of solar power to convert bore water to fresh water and storage capacity is now 5.8 million litres of potable water. All rainwater is stored and harvesting produces some 12000L of drinkable rainwater from every millimetre that falls on the site.



Environmental sustainability is core to the design of Southern Ocean Lodge with significant hybrid solar and battery infrastructure allowing the lodge to generate its own power and continue to run off grid in its remote location on Kangaroo Island’s southwestern coast. A computerised building management system minimises usage.




The lodge actively engages with the island community, choosing to almost exclusively work with local growers and producers. Collaboration with a community network of small businesses provides a veritable boost to the regional economy and creates a homegrown identity for Southern Ocean Lodge.
