Our ethos of simple and sustainable living is what inspired us to begin the journey of creating our bus home. We have up-cycled second hand materials, handmade items, sourced local products and have aimed to be conscious in our purchases to create a unique home. Much thought and creativity has gone into the custom made furniture and design layout. This unique bush retreat is the perfect hide away.

The space
The Bus -
Look forward to falling into a luscious king bed with a mix of linen and fair trade, organic bedding. The towels are luxurious organic, fair trade cotton. The shower is full sized and the bus has it's own composting, clean, civil looking toilet. The bus is warmed by a toasty Jotul wood fire place. There is a full kitchen if you want to cook and stay in. If you love playing music we have a guitar to play some tunes or read a book from our little library.

There are stunning views over the tree tops and the Tamar River with green bushland all around. Breathe in the clean crisp air while feeling secluded and peaceful.

Where you’ll be

Hillwood, Tasmania, Australia

The Bus is situated on a quiet block over looking the Tamar River in Hillwood. A small town in the Tamar Valley, home to just under 600 people. Well known for its berries and apples. It is half an hour from the city of Launceston. Two minutes drive to the Hillwood strawberry farm. A beautiful area to take a walk along the river or go fishing. There are plenty of wineries nearby as it is on the Tamar Wine route. Or visit Honey Tasmania, Seahorse world or cafes and restaurants on the drive around the Tamar. Or just simply relax and take in the stunning views.
