This cabin amongst the towering gums allows a serene, freedom feeling whilst sheltered and enjoying many comforts of home. The birds will wake you in the morning (if not kookas in the night) and the starry skies are something to behold. Lots of wildlife especially kangaroos, parrots and echidnas. Gold prospecting is welcomed by hipcampers and is a popular activity in surrounding areas. Wildflowers in Summer and fungi in winter provide intrigue and discovery for nature enthusiasts.

The wood stove provides for cooking and for warmth, making the cabin a haven in summer and winter.

10 minutes down the road you'll find the quaint village of Talbot. The town retains a number of historic buildings from its prosperous gold mining days which can be observed by taking a stroll along Scandinavian Crescent in the heart of the town. Some of the old shops which line this street are now home to speciality businesses, including a clothing boutique, bookshop and homewares store. The restored London House building in Scandinavian Crescent operates as a cafe and visitor information centre and is surrounded by an attractive community garden. At the corner of Scandinavian Crescent and Fyfe Street is the Talbot Pioneers Memorial Playground with BBQ and picnic shelters. A monthly farmers market operates in Scandinavian Crescent and surrounding streets on the 3rd Sunday.

2 hours from Melbourne, 1 hours from Ballarat.
