Wooden Compass

Adventure awaits! Explore confidently in the direction of your dreams with our handmade compass for your little outdoor lovers.   An engaging and fun tool to use when learning about direction as the metal piece will always turn towards the Earth’s magnetic North Pole.   Perfect for camping, hiking, orienteering, car rides or spatial adventures around your backyard!  This unique, handmade compass can be worn around the neck or kept in a pocket.


They make the most thoughtful gift for a little outdoor explorer or a gorgeous decorative piece for a nursery or bedroom.  We'd love for these compasses to be shared amongst family members and passed down from generation to generation.  


These beautiful compasses have been designed by us and proudly handmade here in Australia on the Sunshine Coast by a talented local woodturner.   They are created from Tasmanian Oak hardwood timber, come with a 100% vegan faux suede cord strap and are coated in a non-toxic oak oil and stain.   

These compasses will help to develop:

  • fine motor skills through grasp and grip
  • hand-eye coordination, eye movement and make functional observations
  • imagination and creativity
  • outdoor orienteering and directional skills
  • senses: they will feel the texture of the toy and smell the timber which provides another connection to nature 



  • Handmade in Australia
  • Vegan and non-toxic glues and stains used.
  • Made from Tasmanian Oak Timber.
  • Sustainable timber, plastic compass.
  • Original, handcrafted design that is exclusive to Wander + Wild.
  • Olive green faux suede neck cord measuring 70-75cm’s long in total (Approx 26cm drop)


Measuring approx: Compass itself (plastic part) is 40mm in diameter.  Wooden Outter approx: 70mm long x 65cm in diameter at widest part x 2cm thick.  Clean and maintain the look of the timber with Hemp Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil or natural bees wax and avoid submerging the timber in water. 


PLEASE READ: Recommended to be used only under adult supervision for ages 3+ and does contain small parts and a cord that could become a choking hazard. These compasses are 100% handmade.  As with any handmade item, there will be slight variances in the colour, size, thickness of timber, grain and general appearance of each item as each one is handcrafted individually with love.  Each piece is unique and inimitable.

Beautiful craftsmanship

Santa brought this piece for my kids and my 8 and 5 year olds are obsessed with it. It’s really encouraged them to learn directions and set off on making their own adventures. Thank you!
