The Baillie Lodges
Experience the quadfecta of Australia’s most incredible location-based luxury experiences.
The Baillie Lodges are a varied portfolio of luxury lodges that span across the most extraordinary destinations in Australia. These high-end holiday retreat locations have endured recent hardship and have come back stronger than ever. From the red-ochre dusted desert to island meccas or the lush tropics.
The remarkable retreats which make up the Baillie Lodges are the Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island, the Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island and Longitude 131° at Uluru-Kata Tjuta. The newest addition to the ensemble is the Silky Oaks Lodge which is located in the Daintree Rainforest and planned to open in 2021.
Last month the award-winning Capella and Longitude 131° lodges reopened after being impacted by the economic strains of COVID-19.
The Kangaroo Island Lodge is on the mend after being consumed by bushfires in January 2020. The retreat is now closed, but ready to return stronger than ever before in 2022 or 2023.
The story of these luxury lodges is one of triumph, and all four stations are eager to see guests return soon. Each of these resorts are in difficult-to-access locations – Adagold Aviation’s charter flight specialists will tailor a private jet travel plan to get you to your destination in luxury.
An off the radar adventure awaits! Located on the World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island, the Capella Lodge is placed at the base of the towering Mounts Gower and Ligbird. The contemporary architectural design adds a stunning contrast to the surrounding subtropical environment. Views of the reef ocean, rolling green pastures and rugged mountain tops are all within sight from your cozy living quarters.
This lodge was voted the best resort in Australia in the Condé Nast Traveler 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards Australia and Pacific category.

Longitude 131° Lodge
Marvel at the red heart of Australia. The Longitude 131° basecamp exists under the majesty that is Uluru. The arrangement of luxury tents are speckled among red dunes and are the only accommodation which offers direct views of the great rock right from the end of the bed.
Exploration and luxury are key focuses here. Take the road less travelled and appreciate the in-depth history the aboriginal Australians have with the land.
Southern Ocean Lodge
You may need to wait a while to visit the third of the luxury lodges after it was caught in the bushfires that tore through the west end of Kangaroo Island.
However, the lodge is undergoing reparations to return better than ever. Located 15km from the South Australian coast, the area is blessed with sweeping views of the vast Southern Ocean.
This lodge was dubbed ‘A Zoo Without Fences’ because of the frequent sightings of kangaroos, koalas, seals, sea lions, dolphins and whales.
Silky Oaks Lodge
The newest addition to the Baillie Lodges. A natural theatre of the surrounding World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest. The doors to these 40 treehouse styled retreats are expected to open in 2021. The cluster of lodges is placed right where the ancient Daintree Forest meets the Great Barrier Reef.
It will be a truly transforming experience to be so close to two of the world’s most incredible ancient wonders.
