Southern Ocean Lodge is located in a magnificent setting. The staff, almost to a person, was amazing and eager to help in every possible way with special thanks to Rachel, Roxanne , Theodora, Joe & Arthur. There are lots of available activities —both complementary and

We absolutely loved Southern Ocean Lodge. The food is fantastic at every meal, and the staff cannot do enough for you. The views are unbeatable and the rooms are lovely. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever been in, and I have a Select Comfort airbed at

Fantastic in every way. Wonderful rooms with unbelievably great and dramatic views. Excellent staff and gourmet food. Beautiful setting. One of the best hotels I've ever been to. Don't debate, just go.

An incredible place; definitely a luxury lodge rather than a hotel per se, but quite simply one of the best places I have ever stayed. We were there as a family over Xmas and never ran out of things to do. The food and ambience in the main lodge/Great Room is incredible. 4

I guess ti depends on your activity level before and after going to Southern Ocean. We are active 70 year olds and did 3 tours in a day and a half. The only one that is challenging is the cliff walk -- well worth it, but the others don't require much physical activity. If we'd been there another day, we would have rested and done spa stuff. It's a gorgeous resort. The seals were koalas and kangaroos were all wonderful and I wouldn't miss them.

What can we expect the weather to be like in late March?
I am thinking it will be ideal. Like September in the US, but you might want to ask them directly.

Didn’t see snakes or lizards whilst there, she’ll be fine. Wonderful place, enjoy.

Do you need hiking shoes for the walks they offer?
Be realistic in your assessment. Gentle strol..sneakers... a hard climb in the scrub...sturdier boots or shoes.
