Nature Retreat in the Coorong

Murray River, Lakes & Coorong, South Australia

‘Come see, come be’ is the invitation from Coorong.Life. This unique, off-grid DIY nature retreat is the perfect place to relax, recharge and to reconnect with a loved one, or maybe just yourself.

Located in the Coorong, about 2 hours south-east from Adelaide, Coorong.Life is immersed in the wild beauty of the area and the ancient landscape is always evolving, constantly being shaped by the wind and waves. The property spans more than 100 acres and you’ll sleep in cosy, custom-built ‘KipPods’, each one with a comfy queen bed, beautiful linen, a kitchenette and gorgeous views.

There is so much to do, but there are no expectations. Get creative and draw, paint or photograph the breathtaking scenery. Take a walk along the dunes and breathe in the wide-open spaces. Bring your kayak or SUP to explore more of the Coorong waterways. Let yourself be consumed by your current novel or roll out your mat to continue your favourite practice. Cook a delicious meal in the outdoor kitchen and warm up next to the fire pit.

Simple and stunning, it feels a world away, and a visit to this creative sanctuary will uplift and inspire you.


  • 3-, 4- or 7-nights’ accommodation packages are available.
  • Each KipPod has bed linen, bath towels, a 2-burner cooktop, bar fridge, outdoor fire pit, pots, pans, cups and plates.
  • Guests have access to communal areas, shared bathrooms and a full kitchen.

Making a difference

  • Each KipPod is fitted with South Australian owned Redarc solar systems and lithium batteries.
  • Coorong.Life offers an Artist in Residency Program where artists can create and reconnect with nature for a week, with free accommodation.
  • There is an on-site studio shop where the focus is on the recycled, reused, well-designed, multi-use, or locally made.
