Taraki Lodge

Taraki Lodge

Accommodation type:

Retreats and Lodges, Self Contained

Taraki Lodge was an idea that four families had discussed not too seriously over dinner one night a few years ago.  All families have a particular interest in golf and are members of a fine assortment of Melbourne sandbelt golf clubs including Kingston Heath, Victoria, The National and Peninsula.

So Taraki Lodge was born out of not only the love of golf but as a result the love of King Island and its wonderful residents.  The island is wild and enchanting with spectacular land and seascapes, rich oceans, lush farmlands, hidden forests and pristine unspoiled beaches.

The house sits high atop sand dunes and faces due West.  In fact, if you set out in a boat heading in that direction the first landfall would be Argentina in South America because you would sail well south of South Africa.

You will notice that the bedrooms are named after their geographic location in the house or the direction they face, in case you lose your way.

Please make yourselves at home and have a lovely short or long vacation.  The house has all the comforts of home and all the tools needed to relax with spectacular views to distract you out to Bass Strait and the Roaring Forties.  Enjoy!
