Remote Luxury at its Finest in Australia

Experience some of Australia’s most iconic destinations in style – the red-dusted outback basecamp Longitude 131° at Uluru, dramatic coastal wilderness and wildlife at Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island and the calm, kaleidoscopic beauty of the world’s southernmost coral reef at Capella Lodge, Lord Howe Island.

The 15 luxury tented pavilions and guest lounging areas at Longitude 131° have been given the Baillie Lodges touch since joining the group in November 2013. From impeccable interior design and furnishings, to newly sophisticated cuisine with outback flavors, a range of new signature guided experiences of the outback destination and the ‘welcome home’ feeling of first name service. Work is underway with the indigenous artists from nearby communities such as Maruku and Ernabella to introduce beautiful dot paintings, ceramics and wood carvings to the lodge and to share the artists’ stories.

A fleet of new mountain bikes is now on offer for guests at Southern Ocean Lodge, perfect for taking for a spin off the beaten track and exploring the wilderness of Kangaroo Island. A medium grade mountain bike trail loops from Southern Ocean Lodge through the bush and along the coast. There’s a good chance of meeting wildlife along the way – koalas, kangaroos, Tamar wallabies and echidnas all call the bush home and might hop out to see the spectacle! Bikes are free for guest use at any time of day and helmets are provided.

Capella Lodge features luxurious, beach house style guest suites as well as openly relaxed lounge and dining areas with knee-melting views of the mountains and turquoise lagoon.
