If you’re in the market to stay in some very small, even tiny accommodation, then tiny houses are probably right up your alley. Ecotourism has really become a massive thing over the past couple of years as travellers search for ways to lower their footprint while also escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Tiny Away has been serving up spectacular tiny houses to Australians for many years now, and they’ve just added five new tiny houses in Victoria which are sure to pique your interest.
Tiny Away launched in 2018 and has more than 100 of the best tiny houses in Victoria at your disposal. Tiny houses that are for those looking for something a bit different than a hotel room. Their system is pretty simple, using a profit-sharing arrangement, the landowners earn up to 45% of the rental revenue of the tiny house with Tiny Away partnering with the landowners to create some amazing experiences.
Tiny Away’s new off-grid tiny houses can be found in Toolangi, Korweinguboora, Yackandandah, Newham, and Walmer.
‘Located in Toolangi, in the stunning Yarra Valley, this house is surrounded by a charming mix of native and exotic European and Japanese flora, backdropped by a picturesque, swimmable pond. Guests will enjoy a truly tranquil and remote getaway with world-famous wineries and activities right on the doorstep.
The property follows ecologically sustainable principles, including a waterless eco-friendly compost toilet and a natural water spring that feeds the property’s filtered water.’
‘Set on farmland in Central Victoria’s Wombat Forest, The Ridge is surrounded by productive gardens, including a fruit orchard, veggie garden and avenues of deciduous trees, all surrounded by tall eucalypt forests. The farm is home to a small flock of sheep, chickens, a (very) friendly border collie, and abundant birdlife.
The rear of the property has 5 acres of forest to explore with elevated views beyond to the Wombat Forest. The nearby forest includes lush fern-covered gullies which form the headwaters of the Moorabool River. Just 10 minutes from the house is the thriving township of Daylesford, and close to all that the Macedon Ranges has to offer including mineral springs, truffle farms, wineries, organic produce, day spas, and fine dining.’
‘Tucked in a stunning, elevated bushing seeing with panoramic views cradled above the Yackandandah Valley lies The Sanatorium. The tiny house’s panoramic views allow guests to experience clean mountain air, abundant wildlife and birdlife, enjoyed within a well maintained and beautifully presented farm setting.
The house is framed perfectly by cattle grazing, meandering horses and surrounding countryside. The nearby Stanley Range provides mountain biking, horse riding and trail bike activities, as well as boutique breweries, distilleries, wineries and restaurants found in and around Yackandandah.’
‘Hidden in a 97-acre property surrounded by farmland on all sides, Tiny Hideaway is surrounded by long winding roads, perfect for walking experiences – or bring your bike, go horse riding, or just simply appreciate nature. The Cobaw Ranges are just a short drive for those who want to do some serious hiking.
The house is in Newham, a small hamlet in the Macedon Ranges, nestled between Woodend, Kyneton, and Lancefield, making it an ideal position to explore the country town hospitality of the regions’ cafes and restaurants, as well as wineries and gin distilleries. Newham is close to the iconic Hanging Rock and nearby Hanging Rock Winery.’
‘Treetops Trail is set in a beautiful bush setting, amongst the trees, just five minutes from the historical town of Maldon. The property offers a plethora of activities from bushwalks and discovering hidden gold mines to local towns boasting fairs, festivals and local produce.
The friendly wildlife and remote setting will guarantee a relaxing getaway and to get a taste of the area, visitors can easily follow the Maldon Taste of Gold food and wine trail, sampling the area’s best local wines and produce from farm gates and cellar doors.’
