The Tiny Houses movement is a few years old now, but it hasn’t run out of steam yet. And for good reason! There is something so unique and tempting about staying in a minimal ecological house that promises total immersion in nature.

So say goodbye to phone reception and screen time, and hello to quality off-grid time and starry skies with the best cottage accommodation Australia has to offer.
After all, after more than a year of intermittent lockdowns, isn’t what we all need right now is a little less home and a little more nature?
1. Mansion of Serenity, Beaconsfield Upper, VIC
Located not far from the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley, Serenity Abode offers the perfect getaway for two. During your stay you will spot kangaroos, wombats and will likely be visited by the owner’s very friendly Labrador, Diesel.
2. Little House 888, Pokolbin, NSW
This tiny fully equipped studio is located in the Hunter Valley wine country in NSW. Yes, that’s right, while you soak up your surroundings, you can also soak in a glass or two of wine. How perfect!
3. Kookaburra Cabin, Palmwoods, QLD
If the accompanying image isn’t tempting enough, the 17-acre property, fresh eggs for breakfast, a friendly dog, and a campfire surely should be!
4. Small acorn, Kernot, VIC
If you are a fan of the finer things in life, this little house is for you. The property on which this sustainable accommodation is located is a 60-acre olive grove that houses a popular restaurant, which offers serene views of the Bass hinterland.
5. Yellow Rock Views, Broke, NSW
Located in Australia’s oldest wine region, this accommodation has more to offer than just a place to rest. The region is also known for its fine cuisine, World Heritage-listed wilderness and ancient rock art.
