For many, luxury is about getting off the grid. Kangaluna Camp, in the remote Gawler Ranges of South Australia, is about as far off grid as you can go.
An oasis in the midst of endless bush and red dirt, Kangaluna Camp has just a handful of tents dotted around the site. No trees were removed to build the camp, so the tents feel as though they are part of the landscape and are far away from each other for total privacy. The simple yet luxurious tents have handmade wooden beds, ensuites and a unique curved design that allows air to flow through.
To really get away from it all, guests can sleep in the Swagon – a renovated covered wagon with a swag bed inside for all-night stargazing. The night sky is exceptionally clear and bright in this part of South Australia and the views have to be seen to be believed.
Activities include a pop-up picnic on the ‘beach’ (actually the shore of Lake Sturt, a bone white salt lake), wildlife drives and a visit to some of the oldest rocks on earth, the 1,600 million year old Organ Pipes.
