Each of Kittawa Lodge’s two one-bedroom lodges are available for two adults.
Architecturally-designed to maximise natural light and a connection to the outdoors, each lodge features a soaring roof-form, reaching out to the southern skies. The location of each lodge has been carefully selected, couched in an intimate valley within the coastal dunes, ensuring guests enjoy complete privacy.
With panoramic views of the coastline and the rolling hills of the property, each lodge avails guests to the greatest cinema of all: a sunset over the Southern Ocean or a famed Bass Strait storm sweeping across the horizon.
Enjoy the natural cinema with a glass of premium Tasmanian wine as you luxuriate next to the fireplace or in the over-sized concrete bath.
Each of the two one-bedroom lodges has been thoughtfully designed to optimise the guest experience, and comprises the following:
- Panoramic coastal views from every room.
- Custom bathroom, featuring a hand-made concrete bath and dual basins, bespoke joinery and a free-standing shower, looking out a floor-to-ceiling window.
- Generous bedroom, featuring a king bed, seated area, superior linen, bathrobes and biodegradable slippers and a selection of luxurious pillows.
- Fully equipped kitchen, with Nespresso coffee machine and pods, and a pantry stocked with essential items.
- Open plan lounge and dining area, allowing guests to relax while sampling local produce, enjoying local artwork and luxuriating next to the French-designed fireplace.
Kittawa Lodge has sourced the best of local art and products, to elevate your experience and connection with King Island. Each lodge enjoys:
- Kittawa Lodge’s exclusive and locally-made body wash, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner and air mist.
- Local artwork, available for purchase.
- Selection of premium and award-winning Tasmanian wine, whisky, gin and vodka, available for purchase.
- Picnic rug, hamper and thermos, as well as warm jackets, for those going on an adventure.
- Yoga mats, for those seeking rejuvenation.
- Bluetooth surround sound speakers.
- Iron / ironing board, hairdryer, books and board games.
- Complimentary WIFI internet access, allowing the use of personal electronic devices. Consistent with Kittawa Lodge’s philosophy, televisions and other entertainment devices have been purposely removed, encouraging guests to escape from the daily grind and connect with the natural beauty of your surroundings.

Why King Island?
While Tasmania’s borders remain closed, Tourism Tasmania has released the Make Yourself At Home campaign. As Tasmanians explore new parts of their own backyard, they are supporting local operators and communities on their road to recovery.
King Island, as one of the Bass Strait Islands sitting off the coast of Tasmania, is the perfect “overseas” getaway for Tasmanians, seeking to relax, unwind, romance or rejuvenate.

Why Kittawa Lodge?
Kittawa Lodge, situated on a secluded and exclusive 96-acre property, enjoys over 750 metres of uninterrupted and untouched coastline, just a 15-minute drive out of the main township of Currie (which houses supermarkets, restaurants, bakery, butchery, chemist and art galleries).
Having opened in late 2019, Kittawa Lodge has redefined the King Island experience, offering two one-bedroom self-contained bespoke and luxurious lodges, with on-site 24/7 staff.
