Only an hour drive and short ferry ride from Melbourne but feel like you're a million miles away. Take in the calm serenity of French Island National Park from the comfort of our brand new tiny house situated on a very spacious and scenic area of a 70 hectare property. French Island is Victoria's largest coastal island and promises a truly remote and unforgettable experience.

With a population of only around 130 people, French Island is a small tightnit community on a very large island! It is the largest coastal island in Victoria. 70% of the island is National Park. The island runs completely off the grid with no mains water or electricity. We hope you enjoy French Island as much as we do!
