What is a tiny house?
The tiny house movement originally comes from the USA and has now become an international trend.
Lovers of tiny houses advocate living simply in small, affordable and eco-friendly homes. In order to live in such small spaces, people living in tiny homes need to downsize and simplify their lives by reducing the amount of material possessions they have.
Tiny houses help to reduce resource consumption and are a cost-effective and sustainable way of living. While this may not be for everyone on a long term basis, a weekend stay in a tiny house can be lots of fun and a great way to get close to nature (and each other!)
Join the tiny house movement, if only for a weekend, with these idyllic bushland escapes. With locations just two hours from Sydney, a stay in a tiny house makes the ideal weekend getaway for those seeking to enjoy their own slice of wilderness!
