Embrace Off-the-Grid Living in These (Ironically) Insta-Worthy Tasmanian Tiny Houses

Tiny Away tiny house

One of the biggest drawcards of tiny houses is their off-the-grid factor — many are in locations so remote you don’t have mobile reception or see another living soul during your stay.

While the lack of mobile reception is TBC, that’s the vibe you can expect from two new tiny houses by accommodation provider Tiny Away. They’ve just opened two tiny homes in Tasmania: the ‘Quirindi’ tiny house, located in the quiet fishing village of Dunalley, just 45 minutes from Hobart, and the ‘Cottesloe’ tiny house, set in the beautiful town of Hagley, not too far from Launceston.

“We are so excited to finally set our wheels in Tasmania,” says Jeff Yeo, co-founder of Tiny Away. “With fantastic scenery, beautiful beaches, a huge wilderness to explore, and delicious food and wine, Tasmania has so much to offer visitors, whether from the mainland or a Tassie local looking to explore their own backyard.”

Both fully self-sufficient homes feature floor-to-ceiling windows, solar panels and rainwater collection tanks for showers. Like Tiny Away’s other 120-plus properties, they’re set on private land and are designed to let visitors experience nature in comfort.

The Quirindi property is tucked into an 8-acre family property in the Dunalley area of Tasmania, known for its fishing and Eaglehawk Neck.

Spend your time here exploring its nearby marine cliffs, caves and chasms, feasting on seafood at The Cannery restaurant or tasting Tasmanian wines matched with local oysters at Bangor Wine & Oyster Shed.

Meanwhile, you’ll find the Cottesloe tiny house in the small town of Hagley. Though known for its scenic views and outdoor activities, the town also has culture in the form of art galleries and museums.

The tiny house is set in among a small farming operation and is backdropped by green pastures dotted with farm animals.

Drive 20 minutes from the home, and you’ll reach another town, Deloraine. Spend a morning or afternoon here strolling its streets lined with Georgian and Victorian buildings, picking up a coffee or pastry from its many cafes.

Farm experiences in the area include learning about local salmon, honey and cheese. Or, visit the Western Tiers Distillery to taste local spirits.

Pirates Retreat, Eaglehawk Neck

A mere hour from Hobart and a convenient 25-minute drive from the historic Port Arthur, Eaglehawk Neck is a narrow strip of land connecting the Tasman Peninsula to the Forester Peninsula. Positioned just a short stroll from Pirates Bay Beach, this house provides an excellent starting point for exploring iconic walking trails, indulging in diving adventures, embarking on thrilling game fishing excursions, and enjoying picturesque ocean sightseeing trips. Be sure to stop by the nearby Eaglehawks Nests Market, offering a delightful array of fresh produce, crafts, and locally sourced indigenous products.
