Kick-off your shoes and hunker down in front of the fire at Sheepwash Bay shack – a simple off-grid hut that offers a taste of the simple life.
The rustic couple’s cabin is located on Bruny Island, a 362 sq km islet located off the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, and is built from reclaimed timbers on a homestead. The shack has a unique shape and hand-dropped bush poles. But what it lacks in technological sophistication, it makes up for with charm: rustic interiors are outfitted with natural materials and have been recently refurbished.
Guests can check in from AUD 207 per night via Airbnb, and spend time combing the beaches for driftwood and art supplies or forage in the farm’s herb garden for brekkie.
The hut is powered by wind and solar energy and has a king-sized bed, indoor kitchenette and outdoor cooking facilities. French doors open onto a private deck where you can sip your morning coffee while enjoying views across the channel to the southern ranges.
