Southern Ocean Lodge - At a Glance

Baillie Lodges regrets to advise that Southern Ocean Lodge was destroyed in the bushfires that ran across Kangaroo Island in early January 2020 and the property is now closed.

Baillie Lodges is immediately committed to rebuilding the lodge and to taking a leading role in helping to rebuild the tourism industry on Kangaroo Island. However, a reopening date has not been determined at this time.

Planning is underway to rebuild the iconic clifftop retreat signalling a new chapter for Southern Ocean Lodge.

In tribute to Southern Ocean Lodge, the original website is still very much live and is a wonderful source of memories, Kangaroo Island information and inspiration for planning return trips in the not-so-distant future. To discover ways to contribute and be part of the KI recovery story, keep abreast of news and ultimately plans for the rebuilding of Southern Ocean Lodge, be sure to check-in regularly.

Southern Ocean Lodge’s sister properties Longitude 131Silky Oaks Lodge and Capella Lodge, along with fourteen other lodges across this vast continent, are welcoming guests daily, and operating as normal, to deliver their amazing and uniquely Australian experiences.
