Where is it?

Hanson Bay Road, Kingscote; Kangaroo Island is 250km southwest of Adelaide

How to see it for yourself?

Guests at the luxurious Southern Ocean Lodge have access to the star-gazing platform pictured, which overlooks Hanson Bay while being just a short minute’s walk along the boardwalk from the lodge.

Why I love it

“The view over Hanson Bay from the clifftop boardwalk is, quite simply, cinematic. The enormous spirit of the Southern Ocean inspires both awe and contemplation – an ever-changing mood reflects centuries of interaction between man and nature, sometimes nurturing, often wild, but always big. Enjoyed with a glass of South Australia’s finest wine in hand, it doesn’t get any better than this!” – Louise Lanyon, Southern Ocean Lodge
