Hailed as the Galapagos Islands of Australia, we’ve heard that Kangaroo Island—and more specifically, the Southern Ocean Lodge—are insane. Cantilevered out over the ocean, not only are the views epic, but you get to take them in while drinking some of Southern Australia’s best wines—and after a day spent with seals, kangaroos, and any number of aquatic creatures. There’s sea kayaking, hiking, and an on-site spa, with a mile-long menu of indulgences. While we can imagine checking in for a full week, this seems like a great add-on to a city adventure in Sydney.
