Nestled among Victoria’s native forest, just a 20-minute drive from the Twelve Apostles and other Great Ocean Road attractions, Alkina Lodge offers the most luxurious accommodation option along this famous coastal stretch. The three architecturally designed, four-bedroom ecolodges are ideal for couples and families, with each lodge featuring a Gaggenau equipped kitchen, Bose audio system, fine European furniture, and a bespoke wood fireplace.
Each master bedroom has stunning ocean views, and it is common to wake up to the sight of kangaroos feeding on the lawn in front of the property. Alkina Lodge is a great base to explore some of regional Victoria’s most impressive highlights, and for the more active visitor there is also the opportunity to take in one of the sections of the Great Ocean Walk, which begins just 900 m from the lodge.
As the only true luxury accommodation near the world renowned Twelve Apostles, Alkina Lodge is the perfect spot to enjoy the abundance of Victorian wildlife and nature from the comfort of your own private villa.
