A raw Australian experience overlooking the lush vines of the McLaren Vale wine region. Set on a secluded hill top, you can light a fire in the pit there, watch the kangaroos hop and the sun set over the vale whilst sipping on a local wine. With an Aussie "drop dunny" toilet and kangaroos at you door step we offer an opportunity to get back to nature in a stunning camping spot whilst resting in a comfortable and cosy bell tent.
“Wow, wow and wow !!! It’s so gorgeous. Inside the tent was like a magazine shoot. It was so luxurious to be surrounded by the thoughtful little touches that were inside the tent. We enjoyed collecting wood for the fire and just enjoyed the peaceful views and the kangaroos jumping around. We will be going back !!”
Get back to nature only 25 minutes from the Adelaide CBD! Be surrounded by native flora & fauna in your own fully functional tiny house. Set on the edge of a natural spring that runs into the Sturt River, this is the ideal spot for all nature lovers or those looking for that extra comfort from traditional camping.
“What an absolute gem on the city’s doorstep! Bandicoot Springs is an enchanting little getaway, and we can confirm that the bandicoots are very friendly neighbours. We were so in love with the property and little nature walk; it felt like we had traveled hours away from the city but in fact were only 20 mins away. Tim was an excellent host and we were very thankful for the lift in his buggy and all the nice dry firewood. We will be back!”
This is an off-grid, self-sufficient, self contained, Earthship studio apartment in the semi-rural Adelaide Hills, 45min drive from the CBD.

The Freney family live next door in a passive solar strawbale home - close by if you need advice on sailing the "ship". A place where you can experience the future of sustainable housing!
“My partner and I stayed at the earth ship for our anniversary weekend and we had the most fabulous time! The space was beautiful and it was really cool to learn more about this style of living. The main room linking out to the green house created such incredible vibes and made you feel like you were outside without having to deal with the chilly weather we are currently having. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful nights in front of the fire. Highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!!”
