TAKE • A • HIKE The clifftop circuit is an energising loop trail, 4km door-to-point return. The inland track is the KI Wilderness Trail which crosses lodge land and extends along the south-west coast for 66kms. Hikers’ heaven! 📷 @airloft

SEAL • THE • DAY An encounter with sea lions at sunrise is the latest way to start the day for our guests. A new experience guarantees private access to Seal Bay Conservation Park in the quiet of the morning before it opens to the public and a chance to encounter the 'residents' in just the company of a partner, family or friends and the lodge guide. 📷 @sealbay



STOKES • BAY The perfect discovery just in time for summer, a private rock pool in which to kick back and castaway. 📷 @airloft

SHINE • ON We wished... and today, Southern Ocean Lodge makes the cover of The Australian's WISH magazine. It's also the annual watch and jewellery special, with the latest high fine jewellery from @tiffanyandco set against a stunning backdrop...

GEN • CUTE Kangaroo Island is a nursery at this time of year, the land and sea abounds with native wildlife - including newly emerged Western Grey joeys - out of the pouch and into the world! 📷 @animalparaid

IN • FLUX It’s easy to become mesmerised in Janine Mackintosh’s works. This hand stitched assemblage titled ‘Flux’ made from Purple-flowered Mallee-box leaves, recently travelled home with guests to remind them of the resilient wind-swept coastal plants along KI’s cliff tops. An exquisite memento... 📷 @janine_mackintosh_artist 🍂

REST • STOP If a restaurant can be cool, calm and collected, its this one - perfect for long, lingering lunches overlooking the rolling Southern Ocean swell.
