Designed to create an exclusive and intimate experience, Alkina Lodge offers the discerning traveller private luxury accommodation on the Great Ocean Road. Located at Wattle Hill on the Great Ocean Road, just 20 minutes from the 12 Apostles, 30 minutes to Port Campbell and less than 3 hours from Melbourne, Alkina Lodge is close to other major attractions including the Great Ocean Walk, the Great Otway National Park, Wreck Beach, The Redwoods, Apollo Bay and Johanna Beach. You’ll find Alkina Lodge the perfect base from which to explore the dramatic scenery, sweeping beaches and ancient rainforests the Great Ocean Road is renowned for. Enjoy stunning ocean views from the master bedroom of your lodge, wake up to the sight of kangaroos feeding just outside your bedroom window, and appreciate the abundance of native birdlife, from bold laughing Kookaburras and petit Blue Wrens, to Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and cheeky Magpies. On a clear night, our signature sky windows afford spectacular vision of the Milky Way; the celestial beauty is pristine as there is no ambient city light at Alkina Lodge. Our luxury accommodation on the Great Ocean Road is like no other. Our three four-bedroom luxury lodges can accommodate from one to 24 people, and are fully self-contained and fitted with only the most luxurious of features, including a Gaggenau equipped kitchen, Bose audio, magnificent art and photography, bespoke wood fireplace, and fine European furniture. Designed by award winning architects, Glenn Murcutt and Wendy Lewin, Alkina Lodge has been designed and built with sensitivity to the local landscape, and compliments the surrounding natural environment. The stunning use of light and space brings a touch of the outdoors inside, and with it a sense of balance and harmony – contemporary design that works with the land, not against it. Discover the art of indulgence at Alkina Lodge, luxury accommodation on the Great Ocean Road.

This is the most amazing place. The lodges are huge with every convenience imaginable, from washing machine, hairdryers, log fire with wood, and kangaroos on your doorstep. A group of about 14 kangaroos hung about just outside our door for several hours. The drive along the

Thank you for your kind review, we are very pleased that you had such a lovely time and that our locals (kangaroos) gave you their welcome. They are magnificent, we are very lucky that they choose to call Alkina home. We do have a fabulous kitchen in the lodges, its great that you were able to make good use if it. Should you ever find yourself back on the Great Ocean Road please look us up! Warmest regards, Cindy and Jordan

Hello Sophie, So Great to hear from you and thanks so much for letting us know that you loved your stay at Alkina Lodge. Cindy and I really loved getting to meet yourself and your lovely partner. Getting the chance to share our amazing area gives us a lot of joy, we are very lucky to be surrounded by such an abundance of great produce and artisans, I personally can't go past the whiskey ice cream from the Timboon ice creamery made with the amazing Timboon whiskey. I'll be sure to say hello to the kangaroos for you until the next time we meet. Thanks again. Jordan and Cindy. Alkina Lodge.

Our family of five spent 4 nights here. Had a great time exploring the area, the lodges are conveniently located. Our kids loved the daily visits by the kangaroos. Alkina is very well stocked in the kitchen, and we bought enough food for dinner indoors at the end of each day.
