Southern Ocean Lodge

Above the crashing surf of the Southern Ocean on Kangaroo Island, this stunning lodge boasts beautiful panoramic views and adjoins two National Parks. Each of the twenty-one luxurious suites features lavish king sleeping areas, sunken lounge, dramatic glass walled bathroom and an outdoor terrace from which to enjoy the spectacular view.

Why we like it

Exclusive without being pretentious, Southern Ocean Lodge is one of the most awarded, luxurious and exclusive retreats in Australia. The views from the hotel are simply stunning with nothing but ocean between you and Antarctica.


  • A gastronomic restaurant with panoramic views
  • Infinity-edge plunge pool
  • Outdoor seating area
  • Library and game room
  • Mountain bikes
  • Spa


Touring is included during a stay here and is designed to highlight the wildlife and marine life of the island. Home to sea lions, fur-seals, dolphins, kangaroo, echidna and possum to name a few, Kangaroo Island is often referred to as Australia’s Galapagos. Try out additional activities such as beach fishing (the chef will be delighted to cook your catch), stargazing, walking or just relax and enjoy one of the lodges signature spa treatments.


Kangaroo Island sits just 15 kilometres from the shores of mainland South Australia and Southern Ocean Lodge is perched above the cliffs that line the south-west coast of this island. Southern Ocean Lodge is reached in just a 50 minutes drive from the airport or 90 minutes from the ferry port.
