Kangaroo Island – Southern Ocean Lodge, Part Two

In my last post at Southern Ocean Lodge, I took you through a review of the property and its immediate surroundings. Today, I’ll show you some of my favorite activities and dining.

Like Wolgan Valley, and because of its isolated nature, Southern Ocean was fully inclusive of both food and activities (with options to pay more for certain “extra” experiences, specific alcohol, spa treatments). We spent our entire stay in the care of the lodge.

Each morning, we’d begin with a nice breakfast. My favorite was the banana french toast.

After our feeding, we’d set off on our day’s activities! On one morning, we set off to visit the “Remarkable Rocks,” a set of naturally formed granite boulders. The drive there alone was stunning.

Honestly, I never thought that I would find a collection of “rocks” very interesting, but the Remarkable Rocks truly lived up to their name. They were incredible, and the design was inspiring. Another plus was that there was barely anyone else there, so we could have easily had a picnic lunch or nap out on these rocks. Pretty darn cool, right?
