Come face-to-face with sea lions, kangaroos, and koalas at South Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island, called "Australia's Galapagos" for its abundant wildlife.

Kangaroo Island is a bit removed. But that's the whole point.
Set atop a secluded cliff on a rocky stretch of Kangaroo Island coastline, South Ocean Lodge boasts breathtaking views of the Southern Ocean and the island's sheer limestone cliffs, sheltered coves, and deserted stretches of white-sand beaches.

The lodge's 21 eco-chic luxury suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the incredible view, sunken lounges that are perfect for relaxing, sandblasted limestone floors, and furnished outdoor terraces.

Experience close-up encounters with the island wildlife through the lodge's signature guided excursions. Watch sea lions at sunrise, explore the vast labyrinth of Kelly Hill Caves, sip champagne and nibble on canapés while watching kangaroos and wallabies cavort around historic Edward's Cottage.

The lodge is also well known for its excellent cuisine, with a dining room both expansive and intimate. The menu changes daily and features fresh local ingredients and an extensive wine list of vintages from all over the country.
