Southern Ocean Retreats – Ridgetop Retreats


The Ridgetop Retreats continue to set the benchmark in design excellence for nature based holiday accommodation. Designed by renowned architect Max Pritchard they take full advantage of their beautiful location in the Stringybark Forest in Deep Creek Conservation Park and successfully blend sustainability with a high standard of comfort.

They have been used as a template for sustainable tourism accommodation both in South Australia and Victoria and were awarded the prestigious Royal Australian Institute of Architects Award of Merit.
But being environmentally friendly doesn’t mean going without. Parquetry floors, bespoke stainless steel kitchen, leather sofas and cedar venetians provide a rich texture for the senses.

The floor to ceiling windows that are the hallmark of the Ridgetop Retreats create a strong sense of being connected to nature. There is so much glass you will feel like you are out under the stars and in among the trees.

Visiting kangaroos, birds, bandicoots, a lush forest with wildflowers and even changing weather patterns provide a visual feast for you to enjoy from your panoramic view point.

The Retreats are centrally located in the Park and only a 10 minute drive from the Kangaroo Island Ferry.
