Paving the way for the future of sustainable housing, Earthship Ironbank is an off-grid, self-sufficient studio in the Adelaide Hills, 45 minutes’ drive from the CBD. With bottle brick and rendered earth walls, it’s also Australia’s first council approved Earthship. If you’re conscious of your eco footprint, you can rest easy here and explore the nearby Adelaide Hills wineries, bushwalks and food trails. A delicious vegetarian breakfast is included with free-range eggs and honey from the property. The Freney family live next door in a passive solar strawbale home and run regular workshops and tours, so if you can’t get a booking (it books out well in advance), you’ll can still visit to learn more about this eco-friendly abode.
