If tiny homes intrigue you as much as we do, but you’re not quite ready to downsize and live off the grid just yet, you can get a taste of cottage life for the weekend. in the backyard of South East Queensland. Nestled in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, just outside of Palmwoods is the new Kookaburra hut, and it will satisfy all of your cottage needs.

Spend a weekend experiencing the ultimate farm life collecting fresh eggs for your morning breakfast, giving the sheep and mini horse an afternoon meal or a ride to explore the land.
If that sounds a bit too secluded for your liking, the cabin is just minutes from the town of Palmwoods, a short drive for a hearty lunch, and just fifteen minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Sunshine Coast’s best beaches. .
Although the house is tiny, it has everything you could possibly need for a weekend getaway (and you’ll definitely get some Instagram photos out of it). If you stick with your off-grid (for the weekend) commitment, the cabin comes complete with a stove and fridge, ready for you to put your cooking skills to the test.
