To add to the luxury, bathroom fixtures, fittings, and a front glazed sliding door were added on site. With solar power, a septic system, and a water tank, Sierra Escape has all the amenities and conveniences of the modern world so guests can enjoy a premium stay that is equally luxurious and eco-friendly.
Featuring over 280 acres of rolling landscape, Sierra is home to kangaroos, native birds, deer, and a host of other Australian wildlife.

As stated by Cam and Tasch, “The Eco Structure has a simple yet sleek design catering for comfort and luxury, which makes the perfect glamping accommodation for our guests.
We found the whole process with Eco Structures very streamlined and efficient, and helped us with everything from design to build – they were available every step of the way.”

We were honoured by the praise they gave us:
“We used Eco-Structures Australia for the 15 luxury ensuite tents as well as the large central dining and gathering place at Ikara Safari Camp in 2014.
I am a fan of the Eco Structures system because while it’s an off-the-shelf, tried and tested solution, it also provided me with the flexibility to customise, refine and make it our own.
Depending on the location and market segment mix, Eco Structures allows developers the freedom to explore highly individualised outcomes with a great deal of control over development costs.”
