We extended our Easter long weekend by a few days to spend some time in the wilderness and unplug with Unyoked. Only a day before did we know the exact location of our tinyhouse – Kangaroo Valley! As we set out on our road trip, we stopped at Bowral to grab lunch at Raw & Wild and stock up on groceries. Our way led us through Kangaroo Valley town and then onto a private property.
We passed 4 gates, herds of curious cows and sheep and a wombat before reaching the clearing in the woods that would be our home for the next few days. We were impressed with how well thought through the whole experience was – a lot of attention to detail has gone into the design and decor of the tinyhouse, and we received detailed instructions for everything. Upon arrival we found a little cart to transport our bags (which we also used to collect wood for our campfire later), as well as torches and a map of the property. The house was fit out with yoga mats, board games and books, as well as a fully equipped kitchen. Beautiful organic handwash and fire lighters were positive surprises – we really only needed to bring food and our clothes. We settled in, explored the surrounds and started to get the fire going to barbecue sausages and veggies for dinner. The next two days we woke up to the sound of the birds, took walks around the property, lounged about in the house reading and drinking tea – I was in heaven 🙂
For the way back we chose Berry as our pit stop where we had the most amazing lunch at Sourdough Cafe followed by the iconic Berry Donuts, which we enjoyed at seven mile beach before heading back to Sydney.
All in all a great experience we can only recommend!
