Kangaroo Beach LodgeKangaroo Island, South Australia
It says it all in the name. Kangaroo Beach Lodges is THE quintessential Australian getaway.
The beach your staying on is so secluded that you could probably walk down it naked down if you wanted (we're not advocating this but hey, you do you).
There's a bloody nice deck to sit out and enjoy a cold one, while watching the sun set over an extraordinary stretch of Aussie coast.
There'll be roos jumping around and probably other wildlife too.
The lodge itself is a timeless bit of Australian architecture, fully contained and considerately designed for a self-catered stay.
Kangaroo Island was razed during the 2019/20 bushfires, but it is bouncing back in a big way. Green sprouts from blackened Eucalyptus trees on the island show this.
