Tranquility in the Bush

A kaleidoscope of butterflies led the way as we drove up a tree-lined driveway and caught our first glimpse of the Twin Peaks Tiny. The tiny was situated in a large paddock, overlooking a great expanse of Kooraban National park. We immediately felt detached from reality and were encompassed in our own perfect bubble of tranquillity - just the two of us with nature as our enjoyment.

The twin peaks tiny was the embodiment of simple and sustainable living. It provided the necessities in a way that supported the surrounding ecosystem. Whilst it was tiny, we comfortably co-existed in the space. We ate meals, read books, and sat together on the exquisite deck, handcrafted by the host, Ged. Our nights were concluded by the fire, a warm flame accompanied by a glittering and vast sky.

Leaving the blinds up during the night is a must. Not only so you wake up with nature, but we were also fortunate enough to witness eastern grey kangaroos and their joeys having a morning breakfast right outside our window. Slow mornings in the tiny were followed by a coffee from Bermagui, bush walks, a refreshing dip in the blue pools or an afternoon beer at the charming Bermagui beach hotel.

Our stay at the twin peaks tiny was unquestionably a breath of fresh air. We left our stay feeling grounded with a strengthened appreciation for the Australian landscape that the twin peaks tiny is so tastefully trying to preserve.

  • Beach
  • Scenic Drive
  • Hike
Swim at the Blue Pools
Surfing is always at the centre of our trips so with not a lot around it was amazing to get in the water at the Bermagui Blue Pools. The Blue Pools are the perfect spot for a snorkel, refreshing swim or even a place to watch the local seals frolicking about....
Exploring Bermagui State Forrest Fire Trails
With no surf and some cold weather, we decided to jump in the car and explore the many fire trails Bermagui State Forrest has to offer. If you've got a 4WD and a desire to get off the beaten track, you could spend hours exploring these trails....
Camel Rock - Murruna Point scenic walk.
We stumbled across Camel Rock in the search for surf. Unfortunately, we didn't find any but instead found the Murruna Point scenic walk. A flock of Yellow Tailed Cockatoos soared overhead as we took in breathtaking views of the ocean. The beauty of Camel Rock is only enhanced by the history of the local Indigenous Yuin people....
A Morning in Bermagui
We ventured into the tranquil town of Bermagui, cruising over an old bridge and weaving through the countryside as we head towards the coast. We grabbed a coffee from Honorbread, a lovely cafe and bakery before continuing on foot around town. We wandered through town, exploring eccentric shops and found our way to the beach. Our morning in Bermagui was the perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday....
Explore your own Backyard
There's nothing like exploring your own backyard and the Twin Peaks Tiny backed straight onto the Bodalla State Forrest. We ventured up into the bush and it was incredible to see the regeneration of the forrest following the tragic fires of 2020. There was an abundance of butterflies and a few kangaroos. Where you stop walking is really up to you!...
