A New Type of Luxury Accommodation

08 April 2019

Move about glamping because a new child or convenient and luxury accommodation is here.

Luxury is probably not the first word that comes to mind when you think of a shipping container, but with a bit of ingenuity, these large steel structures can be transformed into glam accommodation.

Originally designed to transport cargo around the world;

 Australian shipping container hotels

This unique accommodation is popping up all over the world, including here in Australia. The potential for 'cargotecture' hotels is huge considering the nation's mainland mass.Check out a few examples that demonstrate true out of the box thinking, welding high-end aesthetics, with modularity and eco-friendliness.


Three top wineries located in three different wine regions across Victoria are set to get the Wine Down Pop Up. The new boutique hotel will launch in the Tarwin Valley, move north to the King Valley and finish up at the Macedon Ranges. Each of the luxury pop-up eco-pods features lavish touches, including queen-sized bed, private bathroom, floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors, private deck, mini bar and hot tub.

This concept is the brainchild of a Perth duo who started the company, Contained which specialize in crafting and converting shipping containers into boutique accommodation, entertainment units and contemporary offices.Their off-the-grid pop-ups have previously appeared in Perth and on Cockatoo Island in Sydney. The beauty of these pop-ups is that they are 100% portable and can be set up almost anywhere for a short or long term period, from the bush or beach front, to rooftops, islands and wineries.

Western Australia

One of the last ships to bring convicts to Australia was The Hougoumont, so it's a fitting name for a container hotel. The Hougoumont hotel in the heart of Fremantle is a container room hotel offering affordable luxury accommodation for mobile, modern travelers. This unique boutique hotel features modernistic architecture and cutting-edge sustainability.Old and new collides where the original building of the former Duke of York Hotel is fused with innovative sea container construction. Welcoming both business and leisure guests, staying at this hotel is truly a unique experience.
