The New Age of Off-Grid Living

The New Age of Off-Grid Living

Carbon footprint. It's very unlikely that these words are unfamiliar to you. These days, we are all so viscerally aware of our own carbon footprint. Our natural world is literally disintegrating in front of our eyes, posing the very real danger that it all might be too late to turn things around. Australia, ashamedly so, is one of the worst producers of greenhouse gases on the planet thanks to our huge mining industry. Yet as a nation, we are more capable of fixing this than so many other countries. With year round sunshine and a temperate climate, we have the potential to be world leaders in reversing climate change. While we have been left behind by many countries, change is afoot. More and more people are slowly trending towards greener living with the type of energy we use, the food we eat and the water we drink.  

When we hear the words ''off-grid'' we envisage long winters trapped by inaccessible wilderness, long beards and long periods between showers. A life bound to the task of simply staying alive. While this lifestyle does conjure day dreams of wilderness escapism, this form of off grid living is no longer the only option.  

Living off-grid no longer means shedding modern day creature comforts. It no longer means disconnecting entirely from the societal dogma of using fossil fuelled power and human waste systems. In the same way that we are learning that farming can be regenerative for the natural world rather than just methane producing, nature destroying food factories, we are learning that we can easily live not only without fossil fuel power, but our household byproducts can be used to enhance our environment instead of destroying it.  


An off grid, weekend getaway with us still means creature comforts like hot showers, enough electricity to charge your phone and your laptop and warm meals cooked in a functioning kitchen. Whether it's sitting at the breakfast bar enjoying a warm mug of coffee watching the wildlife, exploring 650 acres of wilderness, enjoying a crackling fire with a comfortable couch to curl up on or drifting off to sleep on luxurious bedding while still being able to stare at the stars. Our Wild Seekers are able to experience the wild in any comfort level they desire. This gives our wild seekers the best country getaways they could ever dream of.  

 And if you are reading this and think that that all of this global warming business is just babble, We don't blame you. We live in a world full of opposing truths, alternate facts and misinformation. But maybe it isn't. The Earth certainly isn't going to be any worse for us stepping more lightly upon it.
