A handful of tiny homes are located in the stunning hills region of South Australia, made from locally sourced materials with minimalism design and taking advantage of natural lighting. The vineyard setting makes the stay even more ideal, with personalised Gemtree Wine tasting experiences available or private yoga classes to soak up the pristine surroundings.

The Reserve, New South Wales
This tiny house has got a touch of Hollywood all over it, thanks to Wild Turkey’s creative director and A-lister Matthew McConaughey casting his artistic eye in its overall design. Nestled in nature along the central coast, this one-off house is constructed using sustainable materials and features an outdoor firepit to make the most of nights’ counting stars.
Big Matthew fan? This premium cabin includes a collection of tapes curated by the Texan actor himself and can be played on the cabin’s vintage stereo. Better yet, enjoy the listen with your partner in crime with a complimentary bottle of bourbon. Cheers to that!

Ryan’s Rest, Western Australia
As Ryan’s Rest’s listing goes, you are instructed to, well, rest. This ever-popular West Australian Airbnb is located on a working potato, cattle and citrus farm with the owners open to showcase the property’s food production, landscape management, sustainability and the natural systems in place.
Other than that, guests are invited to do absolutely nothing, simply enjoy the apple-green rolling hills and forested landscape with a waterway that you can exclusively use for swimming, fishing or canoeing – that’s if you want to do something. In addition, the outdoor patio is equipped with a gas hooded BBQ and fire pit, so despite the night’s being cool, you will never get cold when there’s a fire burning.
Nearby is the karri-tree country, Pemberton (12km), with the world-famous mountain bike track, The Munda Bindi, 1km away.
