Kangaroo Beach Lodges, Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Beach Lodges are three designer holiday hideaways located in a remote, rarely visited cove of Kangaroo Island. Surrounded by 8000 acres of family-owned land, this beautiful white sandy cove, flanked by soaring headlands has been a secret for decades. It remains pristine, peaceful and private. With each lodge catering comfortably for 2-8 guests, Kangaroo Beach Lodges is ideal for a romantic getaway, a family get together, special occasion or corporate incentive.
Kangaroo Beach Lodges - Kangaroo Island
|Kangaroo Beach Lodges are three elevated retreats designed to enjoy privileged views - the sight of summer sunshine playing on turquoise shallows, winter seas hammering ancient rocks, White-bellied Sea Eagles riding thermals, dolphins surfing swells, and a beach without footprints.
You are invited to be one of the few to share this experience!
Acclaimed architect, Phil Harris of Troppo Architects, has designed Kangaroo Beach Lodges for stylish living, open-air indulgence and barefoot relaxation. The three lodges are set 50m above the cove on pastured slopes. The country here is wild, rugged and home to the largest sea cliffs in South Australia.
Each is fully isolated and oriented to enjoy its own uninterrupted views, space and privacy. Your Kangaroo Beach Lodge offers 240m² of luxurious holiday living and is fully-furnished with all high quality furnishings and fittings.

Lifestyle at Kangaroo Beach Lodges
Diving - The northwest coast is famous for its gropers, the remarkable Leafy Sea Dragon and its shipwrecks (one lying in the bay next to Kangaroo Beach). For an unparalleled offshore dive we will recommend the local dive company or for some gentler encounters off the beach, be sure to bring your snorkeling gear.
Walking - You are welcome to explore De Mole River Farm with its sea-frontage of nearly 10 kilometres - coves, cliffs and stunning views are waiting to be discovered. For those wanting to really go the distance, walking tours with a professional guide can be arranged, taking you through spectacular cliff and bush scenery into the Cape Torrens Wilderness Protection Area.
Island Tours - Local operators offer guided tours of the island’s many sights including famous Seal Bay, historic Kingscote, Little Sahara Sand Dunes and Flinders Chase National Park. Specialist tours are also available for lovers of art, food, wine, wildlife and history. Just ask us.
Sunset drinks - Take your favourite tipple to the western headland around from Little Kangaroo Beach, or, if you’re feeling energetic, scale the high ridge to the east - both vantage points offer sublime views of the setting sun.
