Nestled in the treetops
3kms up a winding dirt track that is only accessible via 4WD, our host Robin welcomed us at the bottom of the track with a pick-up and provided a rustic Australian driving experience through the bush.
It was a bumpy ride up the steep incline, scrambling to hold onto our guitar and valuables with a few chuckles and jokes and hats bouncing on our heads. Robin shared his knowledge about the area and pointed out the native flora and fauna.
Greeted on the property by Bono and Occy, the resident canine showed us to our front door with tails wagging.
Perched on the side of a mountain range amongst the trees, The Treepod overlooks a valley that houses its own private waterfall and swimming hole. Completely off-grid and powered by solar, it is entirely self-sufficient.
Fully immersed in nature, even the shower was outdoors, and we were delighted that it rained during our stay, as it gave us the chance to indulge the experience fully....
Things We Did
- Food & Drink
Kiva Spa transported us to a place of stillness and invited us to reconnect with ourselves. We both left feeling recalibrated, the perfect start to our retreat deep into the hills of The Inner Pocket....
We packed a picnic lunch and even collected a few Mangoes on the way from a tree we passed in the meadow.
Fresh water from recent rainfall was a delight after the trek through the bush, and we were quick to cool off in the outdoor shower upon our return to the Treepod....
An array of spicy aromas lead our noses through the village of food stalls and local art & crafts.
A fantastic way to experience the community spirit, the atmosphere is light and fun with local buskers setting the vibe.
Keep an eye out for the Pineapple Man rockin' his pineapple shakers! Donation by smiles :)...
Created with love, this Vietnamese eatery has staple recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation using local ingredients. We enjoyed the must-have dishes San Choy Bau and Dumplings followed by a shared Summer Curry (vegan & vegetarian options available)...
