History of the lodge

Headland Lodge

Built in 2010, the three lodges that formed 'Kangaroo Beach Lodges' we originally run as a single business for holiday accommodation. More recently, only Headland Lodge has been made available to the public as the other two lodges are being used privately.


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.
