It’s a trending movement that the region is embracing with full force – sustainable housing for travellers. A new eco-friendly accom to join the growing list is Barn Hives in Yallingup. The eco-pods are architecturally designed with special attention to sunlight and cross ventilation. Water is collected from rainfall and heated by solar panels making it self-sustainable.
Petit Eco Cabin is the latest rural hideout to open in the region. The architecturally designed timber cabin is set amongst the organic vineyards of Windows Estate in Yallingup. A testament to Australian craftmanship, all fixtures, fittings and décor items have been sourced and made in Australia. Everything has been carefully curated to help you slow down. So, fill up the outdoor vintage tub, hop in and soak up the views.
Margaret River Heartland is also eco-aligned offering off-grid accommodation with pastoral views to the forest. Choose from a weatherboard cottage or a ‘glampvan’ – which is a completely refurbished caravan designed by artist Anita Revel. It’s barefoot luxury at its finest with a modern kitchen, vintage record player, and rainwater sky shower.

You’ll practice yoga in pristine locations, be nourished with plenty of local and organic produce, connect to country with a powerful Indigenous experience and tuck into a glamping tent by night.
