From hosting seances to cosy cafes, repurposed shipping containers are everywhere. Now two of them are operating as luxurious pop-up eco-hotels, managed by the folks at Contained. Until July, the container accomodation is travelling through three notable Victorian wine regions.

Each shipping container has a queen-sized bed – fitted with Cultiver linen sheets – a minibar, and an ensuite with Hunter Lab toiletries. The long sides of the containers have sliding glass doors that open onto a private sheltered deck, where guests can take in the views of the vineyard. There’s also a hot tub and reverse-cycle heating.

Prices include an in-room continental breakfast made with ingredients from local producers. Dinner and lunch are not included in the price, but meal hampers showing off the region’s local produce will be available at each location. Activities to help guests make the most of their surroundings include yoga in the vineyards and winery tours.

The first location was Waratah Hills Vineyard in South Gippsland, and the containers are now at Dal Zotto Wines in the King Valley until June 2. From there, they'll move onto Mount Towrong Vineyard in Macedon from June 7 to July 7.

Prices start at $275 per night. More information and bookings here.
