Planning our trip to Australia we came across the Southern Ocean Lodge when we "Google" Australia wild life. What a wonderful surprise! While many of our friends from Australia and none of our American friends had visited Kangaroo Island, We have to say, we are very glad we did, and especially decided to stay here. It is hard to find...

From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, the coastal views, service, fantastic facilities, friendly staff and excellent food, will remain in your holiday memory forever. Truely, "Heaven on earth". We had the family trip of a lifetime to Australia, but staying at the the Southern Ocean Lodge was the highlight of the experience. Paul G Toronto

The flight to KI is only 20 minutes, but the hour-long drive to Southern Ocean Lodge takes you into another world. This beautiful, rugged, critter-filled island has so much to offer visitors. S.O.L. meets you at the airport or ferry, and takes care of everything during your all-inclusive stay. You are welcomed into the great room by a young staff...

Aside from one of the most spectacular coastal views, and the friendly, helpful, professional staff, the Southern Ocean Lodge offers an incredibly comfortable environment with an emphasis on feeling like this is your home. I only wish it were our home for more than the three magical days we spent. The prearranged outings were also all worthwhile, even considering the...

We just spent 3 wonderful and relaxing days at the stunning Southern Ocean Lodge. From the moment you are ushered in the front doors, to the amazing views and going to sleep every night hearing the ways crashing, our stay was everything we had hoped for. The food was delicious with a strong regional flavour which was accompanied by a...

Having not been to Kangaroo Island for a number of years I was looking forward to the whole Drive / Ferry and the stay at SOL experience. Being involved in the Construction Industry I was taken back by the Architectural design and how the building marry itself into the landscape. Well the landscape was breath taking matching the design of...

We had 3 days here to mark a 'significant' birthday. We don't think of ourselves as 'wealthy', so the cost was a major consideration, however from the moment of arrival we felt that it was really value for money. The staff make you feel so welcome in such a relaxed manner - nothing is a problem. Through clever design each...
