Perched overlooking Snelling Beach from Karta Pintingga country, the four WanderPods at South Australia’s Wander on Kangaroo Island are named for the Heavenly Waters constellations seen from these southern skies: Carina, Columba, Pyxis and Vela (a two-bedroom pod). From the vantage of each pod’s outdoor stone bath – cloistered between sky and ocean – it’s easy to see why the celestial sky and unfathomable ocean play endless muse. With handpicked experiences partnering with local providers and $10 donated to Bush Heritage Australia for every booking, Wander Kangaroo Island subscribes to the same no-holds-barred approach to luxurious sustainability as its interstate sister – Wander at the Overflow 1895. Each pod is filled with eco design features: solar-powered air conditioning, a rain shower (and flushable toilet!), Subpod composting plus a native edible garden – making them self-sufficient for peak solitude. Cook a meal in the well-equipped kitchen using your Tastes of Island Pantry box (available for pre-order), then decamp to the comfy wool-blanketed couch. Once you’ve drunk in the night view (and an Islander Estate’s drop) the Cultiver linen-covered king bed awaits to lull you into heavenly rest.
