Tiny house in a big forest

Warburton, Yarra Valley, Victoria
Victoria's forests have always been my favourite to explore, and heading to Warburton I knew we were up for only the best. We spent Friday night settling in to the Bedford and Breakfast Tiny House.  Saturday morning, we woke up to a thick sea of fog swimming amongst the giant ghost gum trees on the property, giving us our first taste of the fresh Warburton rainforest. We enjoyed making a delicious breakfast with the juiciest home grown fruit and fresh eggs provided by Barry and Christine, before heading out to explore our local surroundings.

By lunchtime we'd had an amazing wood fired oven pizza served by Little Joes, and were on our way up the winding roads to Mt Donna Buang. After checking out the view from the very top, we headed down into the Rainforest Gallery walk to soak in the lush greens and (we were hoping) maybe even spot an elusive lyrebird. The day was clear, so we seized the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful sunset by taking a recommendation from Christine, and headed to Seven Acre Rock, about a 40 minute drive from our accommodation.

After an easy 15 minute hike, we found ourselves on a top of a rocky natural viewing platform, with 180 degree views of the spectacular Yarra Ranges. We watched an incredible sun set with the view all to ourselves, our cameras and the birds, then set out for another recommendation from our hosts Chris and Barry- an Argentinian restaurant called The Independent in Gembrook. The food, wine and service was next to none and really closed our trip with a great sense of fulfilment along with some full bellies.

Where We Stayed


The Bedford & Breakfast Tiny House Experience

We settled in the first night, toasting ourselves by the mini log fireplace with a couple of wines to wind down from a long week at work. There is a super cute wood burner that is sufficient for heating, and great cross ventilation for natural air conditioning!  The tiny house is off grid and the owners have made a real effort to offset the environmental impact when creating the the tiny house with excellent insulation and double glazed windows....
