Cherishing our planet is everyone’s responsibility — so why not go green when exploring SA.


We adore getting out into our natural surroundings and the incredible beauty that SA has to offer — but, like many others out there, our mission is to always leave our great state exactly as we found it. As education in sustainable living grows and more people make the choice to go green, it’s exciting to see the same love and respect for Mother Nature reflected in local businesses around South Australia. So, when you’re choosing your next adventure, go eco!


From the founders of Applewood Distillery comes a new sustainable wine label that we just know you’ll love. Unico Zelo is making wine the true blue way, celebrating everything that Australian soil has to offer in the most eco-friendly way possible. The Unico Zelo team has earned their stripes as a certified B Corporation, which means they’re being held to the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. Now they’re proudly creating accessible wines for the next generation to adore, while also helping to pave the way for other winemakers to up the ante when it comes to sustainable horticulture. Go, you good things!


Talk about local! Located in Tea Tree Gully, this beauty prides itself on being one of SA’s most unique dining experiences — and really, their ethos says it all. “Topiary is run in a similar way to the households of our ancestors 100 years ago. We only source locally, make everything from scratch, work with whole carcasses and waste nothing. We want to make the most of our surroundings without harming the environment,” says Kane Pollard, Creative Director. They’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and even have a full plant-based menu that celebrates one vegetable at a time in all its glory.

It doesn’t get much better than an EYRE.WAY getaway. These eco-friendly little homes, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, give visitors a chance to explore the untouched areas of the gorgeous Eyre Peninsula region. These beauties are architecturally designed and crafted in the local area, and our planet is front of mind every step of the way. You can choose between Yambara and Maldhi, (which both sleep two adults and two children), to get off-grid and start exploring the natural beauty while leaving minimal footprints behind.

We’re so lucky that so many native animals, birds and plants all still call Australia home — largely because of some incredible conservation work by places like Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Kangaroo Island. For the last 25 years, this privately-owned conservancy has worked hard to keep Australian wildlife flourishing. After a devastating few years with bushfires and the pandemic, the sanctuary has flung open its doors once again, inviting visitors from far and wide to support the work they are doing to keep their treasured animals and 190 species of native plant life flourishing.
