Marion Bay is undisputedly one of South Australia’s most beautiful destinations. Tucked away at the bottom of the Yorke Peninsula, three hours drive from Adelaide, it’s also the gateway to Innes National park and home to fishing and crayfish industries.
Now it’s also home to some fun, new eco-pods, that offer an incredible, private experience, in a stunning, ocean-side location.
There are two Hillocks Ocean Pods to choose from, which provide a glamour camping experience for those venturing down to the foot of Yorkes.
The contemporary designed accommodation is situated in coastal bush with magnificent views of Butler’s Beach and Hillocks Point.
Enjoy the peace and beauty of a remote coastal location with the ambiance of camping and the luxury of modern amenities.
Explore the bush and marine environment. Fish, swim or laze on the beach. Watch the whales from your dining room window as they swim past on their way to breeding grounds. Be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the surf. Enjoy breakfast with the chattering of fairy wrens, view the endangered Hooded Plover as they forage on the beach and watch the Sea Eagle soar over Hillocks Point. Snuggle in the warmth of your Pod and watch the fury of ocean storms pound upon the coastline. Enjoy the comfort of a camp fire and camp cooking in winter (from 30th April to 1st November).
The pod contains beds for four ( a double and two singles), hot shower and eco toilet. There is a gas stove, grill, oven, BBQ and utensils to cook on the open fire. The unit is designed to leave a low environmental foot print, having a high energy efficiency rating, employing solar and wind power, rain water and recycling of waste. 12volt provides lighting, fridge, freezer and power outlets. An inverter provides a 240 volt outlet appliances (maximum 600 watts (or 2.5 amps). There is a speaker jack for iPhone or iPad. A fan, the coastal location and insulation provide a cool, comfortable pod in summer. Gas heating keeps you toasty warm in winter. Linen, bedding, towels and beach towels included.
Pets under control are welcome.
You may like your friends to join you in a camper-van, caravan, or tent alongside the Pod. Standard camping fees apply.
