7 super secluded getaways you’re going to want to keep to yourself

Posted by Casey Warrener on Wednesday, December 7, 2016

When we’re thinking about holidays, sometimes our top priority is just to get off the grid. There’s nothing like setting yourself apart from the crowd, turning down the volume and turning up the relaxation. We’ve traversed rough terrains to far-flung destinations to unearth the perfect quiet spots to unwind. Ready to disappear for a while? Then check out these seven secluded getaways – you won’t want to share them with anyone.

Retreat into a bluestone cavern in Kyneton 

Nestled in the vast countryside of Kyneton lies the Stables at Highbank, a 19th century bluestone stable beautifully refurbished to include all the essentials you need for a secluded escape: long driveway, walled gardens, wood fire and a deep clawfoot tub. Oh, and the well-stocked kitchen means you can make the most of the region's local produce. This place was made for Saturday nights in.

Escape to the Good Life in Australia’s Southwest

Trewent Farmhouse and Cottage might be just a half hour drive from Pemberton in Western Australia, but with its backyard creek, pet kangaroos, and fruit and veggie patches you’ll feel as far removed from civilisation as you can get. Switch off your devices and sync up with nature at this cool retro homestead. Peace.

Play in a secret garden near Kangaroo Valley

Little Pig Creek is a rustic cabin hidden in wild countryside near Kangaroo Valley that simply radiates good vibes. Enter a world of colour and exotic treasures, set the mood with incense and candles, rug up by the fire or find your boho spirit and dance on the deck. Shoes are optional.

Put on your explorer hat in Sceale Bay 

With 500-acres of uncharted dunes and wild ocean frontage on the west coast of the Eyre Peninsula, it doesn’t get more secluded than Tiliqua Sunrise. The entire house is open to views of shifting coast, crashing whitewash and beach creatures. The living areas flow onto a wraparound verandah that’s just a step up from the sand. It’s an adventure getting here, but the destination is well worth the trip.
