As the sunshine begins to return to South Australia, there has never been a better time to escape the city and treat yourself to a staycation on the Eyre Peninsula.
If you’re dreaming of an idyllic getaway and some well-deserved R & R, the Taronga Luxury Eco Lodges are the perfect place to unwind amongst stunning bushland surroundings.
Only 20-minutes away from the bustling seaside town of Port Lincoln, this wildlife haven is a slice of Eyre Peninsula paradise.
Describing the sites as “total luxury without the guilt”, the Taronga lodges are designed as private retreats with the native flora and fauna in mind, creating a unique and indulgent holiday experience.
Situated in a corridor of 25,000 native sugar gum trees, shrubs and sheok grass, the award-winning Taronga location offers two secluded limestone lodges, the Ridge and Valley, nestled on the 100-hectare property.
Residing on a hilltop, the Ridge site offers 360-degree unparalleled and private views of the Eyre Peninsula, including the iconic Boston Bay coastline. Juxtaposing the panoramic lodge, the Valley site is hidden within the sprawling native bush, allowing its guests to relax, unwind and “be nurtured by nature” at the intimate sanctuary.
Both private lodges include a king-sized bed, entertainment system, large north-facing windows to watch the breathtaking sunsets and a Japanese style bath to relax in a soak up every ounce of luxury.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast of farm fresh eggs, fruit and yoghurt and a steaming cup of espresso coffee with full catering amenities and a bar stocked with local goodies.
Intended to sleep two, the Taronga luxury eco-lodges are the idyllic romantic retreat for couples, however, if the kids must attend, a fold-out double sofa bed is available. Both lodges require a minimum of a two-night stay and begin retailing at $330 per night.
Designed by architect Gianni Zandel, the lodges were built to encompass an eco-sensitive ideology, the core ethos of the destination, with both carefully constructed to minimise waste, energy and water.
Residing in the heart of the Eyre Peninsula, this getaway location is the perfect opportunity to explore the local towns and beaches and indulge in the fresh seafood the coastline is famous for.
