Wander on Kangaroo Island
Calling you to explore new opportunity.
Listed by the New York Times as one of the Top 10 Places to Visit for 2023, Kangaroo Island is home to breathtaking diversity, striking coastal rock formations, and a vibrant vanguard of locals who celebrate and protect this iconic destination.
Here on this magical island, just a short ferry or flight from Adelaide, four WanderPods rest atop the northern bluff overlooking Snelling Beach and the biodiverse waters of South Australia.
Discover expansive swaths of protected native lands, beautiful storms that sweep across untouched bushland, and an ever-renewing case study in the resilience of communities formed in the crucible of distant lands.
“It doesn’t matter what direction you go on Kangaroo Island, you’ll find something magical before long.” Jeff K
Sitting high up in the heavens, four WanderPods overlooking the Great Australian Bight are named after constellations only seen in the southern skies. Part of the Heavenly Waters family of stellar formations, their names relate to the great oceans, rivers, sea creatures, and ships.
What Wanderers are saying.
From Austin staying at Carina
Honestly the most beautiful place we have ever stayed!
The view from the bedroom was unreal. The pod was modern and had a great aesthetic. Would definitely stay again, cannot recommend enough!
From Jo staying at Columba
Wander is spectacular; quality fixtures, sweeping views, and everything set up to create a lovely intimate escape. I particularly loved the outdoor bath, the herb salts and the games to inspire connection in a couple…just what we were looking for.
From Rachael staying at Carina
Our stay was absolutely magical, we honestly wouldn’t change a thing about it. Carina was stunning, tranquil, luxurious and reinvigorating for us. We spent hours, just relaxing, taking in the view, the fresh air, wildlife, and the solitude. Congratulations on creating something so special Wander, we look forward to exploring more Wander locations.
