Take a cruisy two-hour drive north-west of Brisbane, and that’s where you’ll find it – plonked in the middle of a 160-acre property near the town of Toowoomba, with panoramic views of the valley below and Blackall Ranges in the distance.
As with most of In2thewild's houses, this one is named after a beloved book character: Charlie, after the inquisitive title character in Roald Dahl's classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Now, a tiny house may seem like a slightly constricting choice for a getaway. But what this little lodging lacks in indoor space is more than made up for in the wide-open space and rolling hills surrounding it. And there are huge windows that let you take it all in.
The house comfortably sleeps three, with a queen-sized bed by the window and a single bed in the loft. There’s also a full bathroom (with a hot shower, importantly) and a heater and fans for all-season comfort. And while the kitchen is completely decked-out, you’ll also find a barbeque and campfire outside, as well as deckchairs to sink into.
One creature comfort that’s limited, though, is phone reception, which – after a year of Zoom meetings, catch-ups and knock-offs – makes this the perfect spot to switch off. Instead, find plenty of books and boardgames to keep you occupied (or BYO).
Or you can think of it as your home base, and explore the quaint towns, Bunya mountains, cellar doors hiking trails and Crows Nest National Park, all just a short drive away.
In2thewild currently has 22 tiny houses across Australia – six in Victoria, 14 in New South Wales and this makes two in Queensland.
