History of the lodge

Aerial View Kangaroo Beach Lodges

Headland Lodge

Built in 2010, the three lodges that formed 'Kangaroo Beach Lodges' were originally run as a single business for holiday accommodation. Each of the three identical lodges including Fides Lodge and Eagles Nest Lodge are now under separate management.

Headland Lodge is positioned on a beautiful section of Kangaroo Island's north-west coastline surrounded by privately owned farmland. The lodge is nestled within a diverse landscape, much of it under native vegetation, with a stunning coastline that will take your breath away.

The vision for our lodge was to create a unique and exciting structure that both responded to the environment but also afforded every luxury and convenience for the traveller staying in a remote location. Maintaining contact with the breathtaking views and the hidden cove was paramount, as well as embracing a design that would not impinge upon the rolling hills of the landscape.


Phil Harris of acclaimed Troppo Architects was engaged to turn this vision into a reality. Only Australian-made materials were used in the lodge's construction. A combination of Australian native hardwoods, zincalume, anodised aluminium and composite fibre boards reflect a modern Australian architectural style that gently touches its environment in a timeless, classic style.
