Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia, has been described as Australia’s Galapagos. It’s a remarkable island of biodiversity, home to some of the country’s iconic marsupials (including the island’s namesakes) on dry land and dolphins, seals, and whales in the water. While you can spend your days here in pursuit of close encounters with wildlife, you’ll enjoy the luxe life when you return to your hotel. The 21-suite Southern Ocean Lodge has made numerous “best” lists of the world’s leading resorts and hotels with its cool contemporary design including floor-to-ceiling windows offering ocean views from its cliff top location. All this luxury, however, is paired with a serious environmental commitment embodied in the lodge’s rainwater reliance and composting programs.
