POOL/GYM: There's a small, infinity-edged plunge pool on the outdoor terrace, and hot tubs in some suites. Alternatively, you can have a swim in the surf below. No gym on property, but there's still plenty of physical excursions which will allow you to complete your daily exercise quota.
RESTAURANT: Under the direction of Executive Chef Jack Ingram, the sole restaurant incorporates local ingredients into their delicious dishes, with a menu that changes daily. There's also an incredible selection of Australian wines and beers, all of which are included in the rate.
VIBE: Chic, intimate, secluded, adventurous.
BAR: There's a self-serve bar located in the main gathering area. There is also a nightly happy hour with the hotel mangers, so they get to know all the guests. It's a great way to meet new people and share stories about your day of exploration!

- A few things -
With more than one third of the island declared as conservation land or national park, Southern Ocean Lodge not only offers an extraordinary luxury lodge experience at the hotel, but they also offer one-of-a-kind experiences off property. Included in the rates, the signature itineraries of selected guided island excursions are designed daily allowing guests to encounter abundant wildlife in a ‘zoo without fences’ and discover the island’s unique natural attractions, often with exclusive access and always with a touch of luxe.
A personal favorite was the Kangaroos and Canapés excursion -- we got up close and personal with the kangaroos, and learned a great deal about what makes them such unique and fascinating animals.
