Year Round

Australia is an all-year-round destination, but during the summer, December to February, it is hot in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. At the Great Barrier Reef, most rain falls in January and February. In northern Queensland and parts of the Northern Territory, roads may flood during the 'green' season, January to March. The ski season takes place during June to October in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Australia's seasons are the opposite of those of the Northern Hemisphere.

Local Info

As Australia's third largest island, Kangaroo Island is 155km long by 55km wide. In many ways, the Island remains today just as English explorer Matthew Flinders found it more than two-hundred years ago. Kangaroo Island boasts outstanding natural beauty and its relative isolation since European settlement has ensured an abundance of wildlife in a stunning and protected natural environment. With twenty-one national and conservation parks covering more than thirty percent of the Island's total area, Kangaroo Island has established itself as a premiere destination for nature lovers of all types. Southern Ocean Lodge aims to provide a level of style and sophistication not currently found on Kangaroo Island. Set in natural bushland overlooking a spectacular section of coastline, the organic luxury of the contemporary Lodge will ensure guests have every opportunity to relax and explore the Island's wonders with a dash of indulgence.
