ENVIRONMENT

From the owners:

The ultra-modern modular building operated entirely off-grid, creating its own power, collecting its own rainwater, and disposing of its own waste, and the combination of spotted gum cladding, steel-framed decking and limestone sourced from the property has created a naturally blended palette of materials that allows the accommodation to sit comfortably within its environment.

The architecturally designed environmentally sensitive construction brings the ‘outside in’. The walls, ceilings and floors are all insulated and the entire north facing wall has floor to ceiling double glazed doors with panoramic views of the native vegetation.

The Wetlands

As part of Willalooka Pastoral Company’s integrated approach to modern, sustainable farming the wetland precinct covers over 2000 acres (810 Ha), it comprises of eight connecting wetlands, which are part of the Marcollat Watercourse.

This area has either been resown to native vegetation or is naturally generating. A series of weirs have been built to recreate natural flows through the wetland precinct. This regeneration project is one of the largest and most significant in South Australia. The planning and implementation of the project has been done in conjunction with the Department of Environment & Heritage and the Department for Water, Land & Biodiversity conservation, various independent environmental consultants and Banrock Station.

The Willalooka Eco Lodge is set in a secluded spot with a breath taking outlook; this stylish and beautifully appointed accommodation is the ultimate eco-friendly escape.

Guests can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Willalooka Wetlands, peaceful evenings on the deck or enjoy the warmth by the double sided fireplace.

The abundant birdlife, fresh country air, native vegetation and the Willalooka Wetlands provide you with the perfect escape. Enjoy a country walk around the wetlands amongst the birds and native wildlife then wind down and enjoy a glass of local wines from the nearby Padthaway and the Coonawarra wine regions.

The double sided fire place creates warmth and softness, the ideal setting for relaxing after long country walks, or simply sitting around and enjoying a book for some quiet time, or to be the backdrop for a long lunch with some good local wine.

The luxurious bathrooms are fully appointed, both with views. The main bedroom with ensuite and double shower and the second bathroom features a deep bath.

The stainless steel gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream, with a 6 burner gas oven and cook top. The huge outdoor deck with a BBQ and table setting is ideal for a long lunch or for star gazing at night whilst watching the floodlit gums alongside. The Willalooka Eco Lodge operates entirely off grid, using solar power and rain water.

The Eco Lodge has been designed using two modules, and a large sliding panel divides two living areas, enabling the home to effortlessly expand or contract depending on the number of occupants. The front module contains the master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe, laundry and main living areas, while the rear module contains 3 bedrooms a bathroom and second living area.
