One of Australia’s finest luxury lodges – Cape Lodge – Margaret River Western Australia


There are eighteen independently owned and operated lodges in the Luxury Lodges of Australia collection. But this is no ordinary hotel ‘group’. This is a collection of like-minded entrepreneurs, each passionate enough about a unique region of Australia to invest deeply in creating the kind of upscale but intimate lodging and bespoke experiences they know sophisticated global travellers seek.

James and Hayley Baillie have created the globally renowned Southern Ocean Lodge on South Australia’s Kangaroo Island. More recently they have taken over operation of the iconic tented lodge Longitude 131 at Uluru. James told reporters, “Australia is now, more than ever, one of the most exciting and desirable travel destinations globally. Australia’s diversity is unique. It is high on the must-go list for upscale travelers looking for the world’s best experiences.”
