Experiences Guide - Kangaroo Island
Globally celebrated and the winner of multiple, prestigious awards since first opening in 2008, Southern Ocean Lodge is set to reopen in just a few short weeks.
We now have a rewarding opportunity for an Experiences Guide to join our Southern Ocean Lodge family on Kangaroo Island.
Southern Ocean Lodge is part of Baillie Lodges - an Australia-based collection of 10 award-winning luxury lodges with properties in four countries and across three continents.
Your office is the outdoors, and you enjoy bringing people together to explore some of Australia’s most beautiful unspoilt wilderness. Where your day is spent being a true host to our guests, deliver high-quality tours and create the ultimate itinerary for all guests.
You’ll have extensive knowledge of Australian animals and plants, ideally those that are endemic to Kangaroo Island. Additionally, your understanding of the local history and indigenous culture will provide a balanced, educational experience for our guests.
This is an ideal time to join Baillie Lodges, with strong growth and career opportunities as the group continues to expand on a global scale.
