Southern Ocean Lodge aims to provide an iconic accommodation experience on Kangaroo Island and is designed to be a sanctuary of comfort, style and personal intimacy, redefining the Australian standard.
Located at Hanson bay on the Island's south west coast, the Lodge site adjoins both the Flinders Chase and Cape Bouguer / Kelly Hill National Parks. Set back from a cliff above the pounding surf the sensitive design showcases a full frontal panorama and is within easy reach of all of Kangaroo Island's major attractions. Modern luxury and design integrity meld with Kangaroo island vernacular and an amazing coastal color palette, creating a unique eco-chic style.
Its location, stunning views, contemporary environmental design, locally sourced food and beverages, personalized interpretative activities and modern wellness spa ensures its status as a South Australian icon.
Widely acclaimed as Australia's Galapagos, Kangaroo Island is home to an abundance of native wildlife and spectacular natural attractions. Covering almost 4,500 square kilometers it is Australia's third largest island and offers the best of the mainland on a smaller, more intimate scale. With more than one third of the island declared as Conservation or National Park, visitors readily come face-to-face with prolific bird and animal species such as New Zealand fur seals, koalas, kangaroos, Australian sea lions, ospreys, echidnas and much, much more. Flanked by the indomitable Southern Ocean, dramatic coastal vistas and sculptured landscapes lay unspoiled by development and riddled with sheer limestone cliffs, sheltered coves, rocky headlands and deserted stretches of sugar-white sand.
Against this stunning natural backdrop rests a distinguished epicurean culture, ably supported by a profusion of fresh seafood, unique local produce and the acclaimed vignerons of South Australia's Coonawarra, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley regions. A veritable feast for the senses, Kangaroo Island is a beacon for discerning travelers wishing to experience the very essence of Australia.
