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.


OH • BABY A new member of the endangered Australian sea lion colony at Seal Bay. About 1000 of the threatened marine mammals live here - it's one of the only places in Australia you can see these adorable creatures up-close. 🖤 📷 @drdeschu


REMARKABLE • ROCKS Relatively unknown in the geological landmark stakes, this natural formation is a staggering monument to the power of the elements and KI’s equivalent to Uluru. 📷

STARLIGHT • STARBRIGHT Lodge Executive Chef, Asher Blackford, shone among the stellar line-up at the Starlight Children's Foundation Five Chefs’ Dinner in Adelaide recently. Asher created a dish championing local produce of slow cooked @southrocklamb lamb with celeriac, @islandpureki sheep's labna and mountain pepper - for 300 guests, no less! Southern Ocean Lodge is a long-time supporter of the charity and its mission to brighten the lives of seriously ill children throughout Australia. To all who contributed to the night's record breaking fundraising success for @starlightau - chefs, sponsors and generous patrons - thank you! 🌟

NATURAL • LUXURY Serene quietude, surrounded by the ambient sounds of the Australian bush, roos grazing, the moon rising. This is a place to feel the most desirable luxuries of today are space, time and the sweet sound of silence. 📷

VIVONNE • BLEU It's clear to see why Vivonne Bay was named Australia's cleanest beach in years gone by. And by gosh South Australia knows how to do a great jetty! 📷 @safromabove

NIGHTY • NIGHT Bespoke bed ➕luxurious linen ➕ocean lullaby = best night's sleep. Ever! 😴

ROLLING • ROAD The winding undulations of Cape du Couedic Road in Flinders Chase National Park make it a memorable drive - a bit like being on a natural rollercoaster! 📷 @milliebrownphotos

COASTAL • COOL Greatly influenced by the surrounding landscape, the main lounge is grand and light-filled, yet understated and comfortable. It's only natural to sink deep into a lounge and lose track for an hour... or maybe a day.

SERVICE • PHILOSOPY More than service with a smile, our wonderful team intuit guest needs before they are even thought of. Restaurant Manager Sahil perfects both attributes here. 🙂📷 @milliebrownphotos

SPA • SANCTUARY The clifftop Southern Spa hovers between earth, sea and sky. Inside a warm fire sparks and the ocean soundscape induces a natural meditation. Treatments harness Kangaroo Island's own nutrient-rich botanicals to relax and rejuvenate. It's a cocoon you won't want to leave. 📷 @truant_travel
