Located on the stunning Kangaroo Island and overlooking Southern Australia’s rolling hills, cliffs and ocean, the Southern Ocean Lodge is the ultimate destination for luxe mini-break. The Lodge is also home to the Southern Spa, a peaceful oasis that combines spectacular views, highly oxygenised air and cutting edge treatments. Manned by head chef Tim Bourke, the restaurant is renowned for its modern menu made with fresh local produce and is inspired by South Australian artisan growers.
Signature package: You can’t top the Southern Ocean hampers, which allow you to find the best view on the island and have your own private picnic.
Although it doesn’t have a spa, Bamurra Plains provides the untouched luxury of nature instead. With its range of suites and bungalows overlooking the flooplains and wetlands, the beauty of Bamurra Plains is in its seclusion. The only noises you’ll hear are the cry of the Kookaburra in the morning and the splashing of the buffaloes trying to cool off in nearby pools.
Signature package: With a range of different packages and journeys available, from food safaris and wildlife adventures to photographic retreats, the Bamurra Plains offers some once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
