Slow and Sustainable Stays across Australia

These covetable properties – found in some of the country’s most underrated destinations – are places where you can truly slow down and reconnect with yourself and nature.
The pages showcase beautiful photography and inspiring tales of everyday Australians, who have chosen to live a life unhurried. Melding design, sustainability and travel, you'll find everything from off-grid shacks, luxurious glamping spots and rammed earth villas, to architecturally designed cabins of your dreams, water views and dreamy outdoor baths – all sure to stoke wanderlust for your next adventure or offer ideas for your own building or interior design plans.
Peppered with tips to help you slow down, travel and live sustainably, this is the perfect gift for an interior design lover, traveller or someone passionate about sustainability and mindfulness.
