Originally inhabited by Australia Aborigines and later settled by sailors and whalers in the early 1800’s, Kangaroo Island is a mere 30-minute flight (70 miles) from Adelaide. Only 93 miles long and 35 miles wide, over one-quarter of the island is made up of national parks and wilderness protection areas. This is a wildlife-rich island, including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, and sea lions. Seal Bay Conservation Park hosts a large colony of Australian sea lions. Kangaroo Island has recently added outstanding wineries and its genetically pure Ligurian honey bees to its list of compelling attractions.
Southern Ocean Lodge
We feel a stay at this luxury 21-suite, environmentally friendly lodge is reason alone to visit Kangaroo Island! Located between two national parks, the entire lodge offers striking ocean views in a dramatic setting—this is truly a very special place. The lodge features a contemporary design with limestone floors, glass-walled baths and outdoor terraces. Guided excursions to the nearby flora and fauna are included in your stay here. Recent clients were especially impressed with the lodge’s locally procured Australian cuisine/wine selection and the small, very nice spa.
