Going Off-Grid: Our Top Tips

If you have never stayed in a tiny house, you may be wondering what to expect. Our well-appointed Tiny Homes have all the modern luxuries you need for an uncomplicated time away in our great Australian backyard. Think air conditioning, running hot water, gas stove, solar-powered electricity—all the things you need for a comfortable stay.  Our Tiny Homes are ready for you to simply show up—pack some clothes, grab some groceries and maybe a bottle of red and some local cheese from The Robertson Cheese Factory or a bottle of gin from Joadja Distillery and make your merry way down to your home from home.  

Cheese and wine are, of course, a must-have, but we thought we’d throw together a couple of top tips to prepare you for your stay with us.  

Some other helpful thoughts, in no particular order: 

  • Remember, a tiny house is just that – tiny. Keep your packing simple.
  • Be prepared to be isolated. This means no internet or phone connection. If the property has more than one site, respect the privacy of other groups. 
  • Be warned, the toilet will most likely be an eco-friendly one or a septic tank. This doesn’t automatically mean they will be gross.
  • Check if linen and towels are provided. You may be required to take your own.
  • Maximise the opportunity to be in nature. Go bird watching. Be ready to get up early one morning to watch the sunrise. Later, watch the sunset and gaze at the wonder of the night sky. No doubt you’ll get to meet grazing wildlife – think kangaroos, wombats or echidnas. 
  • The mosquitos and flies will want to meet you – pack insect repellent. 
  • Keep a torch with fresh batteries handy.  
  • Watch for the elusive black panther. Okay, this is probably an urban myth, but you never know. 

Urban myths aside, going bush for even a short weekend can be a fun and refreshing experience. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and give it a go.  

We can’t wait to welcome you!

If you are looking for an escape, to switch off from the business of the world, this is the perfect place. Wilson's Rest is situated perfectly at the top of a small hill. Your view is of tall mountain ranges, quiet flowing rivers and in the morning you’re greeted by birds and their endless sweet melodies.

What a wonderful location. We stayed at Wilson's Rest and explored the property finding many interesting things, including wombat holes, birds, kangaroos and what a beautiful river. There are so many spots to relax and take it all in.

The Rapids is wonderful! The location you can’t fault, having the best view of the river making it perfect for swimming and exploring. Fire pit, rapids, sunset and all you need very comfortably. Amazing and highly recommend.

The perfect spot for a relaxing few days away. The house itself is beautiful – the amount of natural light let in is amazing and made us feel very close to nature. Being able to hear the river from bed was also a plus! Would recommend to anyone. 10/10!

Our Tiny House was a delight. You are so close to the water in all of these tiny homes. It's right there! You can hear the birds singing and the water flowing when you leave the screens open. It's like everything you want when you camp without having to camp.

The most serene holiday house we've ever stayed in! The location is incredible right by the river. It was quite incredible to hear the sound from all parts of the house. The house is really clean, much more spacious than in photos and really beautiful decorated.

River Cottage far exceeded our expectations, the photos don't do it justice! The most tranquil setting – it is so quiet at night with a clear view of the moon, it really is picture perfect. Bring a picnic blanket to watch the stars at night, we spotted a lot of shooting stars.

We loved our stay at Elevation, it was perfect. Tranquil. Clean and cosy. Beautiful river and mountain views and nature at its finest.
