These tiny Aussie cabins offer a simpler way of life

Many Australians and New Zealanders have fond memories of camping and spending time outside with the ones they love. As the digital age takes over, however, higher value has been placed on things rather than experiences.

One man, Michael Lamprell, wanted to change that, so he set about creating off-the-grid tiny homes throughout Australia that allowed people to disconnect for short periods.

According to Michael, people are not always ready to commit to the minimalistic lifestyle full time, but they are more than happy to do so on holiday. Therefore, he created a company called CABN, which provides eco-friendly tiny home cabins across Victoria and South Australia for people to break away from the stressors of the contemporary lifestyle.

Five CABNS are available in quiet locations with locally sourced and sustainable materials and practices, including rainwater catchment systems, solar power, and composting toilets. They also don’t have WiFi, and those who stay there are encouraged to make use of the lockboxes for mobile devices.

What’s more, all CABNs have cute names like Matilda, Sadie, and Georgia, which adds a personal element to the stay. Then, if you like what you can see, you can purchase a CABN for your own slice of paradise in New Zealand or Australia.

Jude

Jude is a CABN in the hills and gets her name from the founder, Michael Lamprell’s mother. The CABN Jude epitomises the real Jude – warm, welcoming, inviting, and non-judgmental. A little bit of an adventurous streak is also thrown into the mix.

Matilda

From the white sandy beaches just a stone’s throw away, to the abundance of wineries and a natural amphitheatre, Matilda is a CABN that you’ll be booking any time you need to break away from the stressors of modern life.

The cabin is around 380 metres above sea level and welcomes visitors to head to the beach less than 18km away. There are also plenty of opportunities for bushwalks, birdwatching, mountain biking, and soaking up nature.
