A truly unique & unforgettable desert experience.

Red Desert Ranges is a converted shipping container home welcoming guests to the serenity of the desert landscape of Central Australia.

A 10 minute drive out of Alice, it's hidden away from sight and sound of everyday life.

Awake to the sunrise without even leaving your bed, admire sunsets by the fire pit and star gaze from the telescope.

Escape & unwind in the tranquil desert views.

The space
Red Desert Ranges rests afoot the iconic East MacDonnell Ranges with surrounding views of the ranges and native wildlife.

Hidden from view, and only a minutes drive past the front gate and through the mulga trees, you find the container home. There's a large parking area aside the container with steps leading up onto the deck.

Inside is an open, airy and uniquely designed studio living space which includes the fully equipped kitchen with bench seating, a reading & coffee corner space, a spacious lounge room and bedroom area.
The container studio has evaporative cooling for the summer days and gas heating for the winter evenings.

The OUTDOOR BATHROOM hosts a large bathtub for morning soaks or susnset wind-downs (and a side table for your cup of tea or glass of wine).
The bath converts to a shower at the press of a button.
The outdoor bathroom is also where you'll find the toilet, vanity, mirror and towels.

The BEDROOM area features a luscious super-king sized bed adorned with all the pillows and cushy comforts you could ever need. Spacious walk in robes are on either side of the bed with ample room to store your luggage, lots of hanging space & clothes hangers, ironing board and clothes drying racks.

Sitting in the LOUNGEROOM area is a beautiful leather couch with a chaise for stretching out and relaxing with a morning cuppa. The lounge has a smart TV & remote for movie nights and Netflix sessions, but the star attraction really is the spectacular desert views through the glass walls. The ranges glow in different colours at varying times of the day. (sunrises & sunsets are our favourites)

A bit of an old soul. I'm a happy introvert with a deeply creative nature.

I adore plants, gardens & landscapes, and I have a bit of a thing for vintage everyday items, antiques & restoring old peices of furniture.

Most of my time is spent hosting, creating, weight training, gardening and adventuring with my partner and our pup.
