The tiny house movement certainly isn’t new but in the past few years it has really picked up momentum. As lives get busier, more disconnected, full of digital content consumption with an emphasis on the hustle culture, tiny houses are a refreshing take on life.
Whether tiny homes appeal to you because of their small environmental footprint, or you like the minimise and downsize aspect of them, or whether they’re just a way to go off grid in a bid to reconnect by disconnecting, there’s no doubt that these small spaces have found a foothold in the modern culture.
So if you’re thinking about building or buying your own tiny house, want to experience minimalism, or just in need of a break, we’ve found some of the best tiny houses in Australia you can stay in.
