Taste – Luxury Accommodation Alkina Lodge

Taste

A Sensory Sensation

The Great Ocean Road and Otway region is already a favourite destination for foodies. That’s why the team at Alkina Lodge have curated a bespoke culinary journey by sourcing local delicacies, cheeses, wines and beers for a truly indulgent taste experience. Sourcing your own is equally fun, of course, with some outstanding boutique breweries only a drive away; just ask your Manager for recommendations.

An Epicurean Adventure

Once you’ve sourced your ingredients from the Otway Harvest Trail, our Gaggenau equipped kitchen (or Weber barbeque if you prefer) is designed to make cooking and preparation a pleasure.

But of course, if all you want to do is sit back and relax, why not indulge in a private lodge dining experience?
