Cabin Getaways That Will Make You Want to Get Outside and Explore

A weekend away doesn’t have to be spent in a hotel. Try something different and experience the wilderness and what nature has to offer by staying in a Cabin immersed in the outdoors.

Whether you’re after a cosy nook on the mountains or love spending nights in front of a fire pit, we’ve put a list together of our favourite Cabin Getaways perfect for your next holiday or retreat.

Worrowing Wilderness Hut - New South Wales

If you’re looking for a unique private getaway experience, then staying in a Worrowing Wilderness Hut will give you just that. These cosy, self-contained hut’s feature modern inclusions and couldn’t be situated in a better location between Jervis Bay and St Georges Basin and just minutes from the famous white sand beaches.

There’s also plenty of places to explore from bush trails where you can see rare animals to national parks like The Booderee National Park, Jervis Bay National Park and Jervis Bay Marine Park. Style tip: The Men’s Moab Adventure Mid Waterproof Boot or the Women’s Siren Traveller 3 are the perfect options for explorers who want a stylish boot that will take you to dinner but keep your feet dry and comfortable for the bushwalk back to the cabin.  

Allira Yarra Valley CABN - Victoria

Escape from the city to spectacular mountain views, bushwalking tracks, and wildlife. Just one hour away from Melbourne CBD, hidden deep in the Yarra Valley you’ll find the Allira eco CABNs. The cabin sleeps 3 and has its own campfire pit!

If you’re a wanderer, there are plenty of walking trails, picnic spots and gardens to explore. Listen to the sounds of nature while walking through the Wirrawilla Rainforest Walk or enjoy a casual picnic in the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden. If you love photography, capture the best views from the top of the Keppel Lookout.

Style tip: If you’re travelling during the wet seasons, you’ll appreciate the GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane of the Men’s and Women’s boots that will protect your feet and keep them dry.

Trestrail Cottage - South Australia

Relax and rejuvenate at the Trestrail, a beautiful settler style cottage offering guests the perfect bed and breakfast for a romantic summer getaway or mindfulness winter retreat.

The property is located just five kilometres West of Sevenhill and is surrounded by numerous parks and walking tracks. We recommend visiting the Spring Gully Conservation Park for a wine and dine experience with views of the grasslands and wildlife.

Style tip: If you’re planning on heading to Sevenhill, the Men’s Freewheel 2 and Women’s Sandspur Rose Convert are the perfect styles for wine-tastings and vineyard tours. Stylish leather and suede with durable traction underfoot for unbeatable grip in all weathers and conditions. To mark on your calendar: Coonawarra After Dark (13 – 14 April) brings together four Coonawarra wineries at the peak of the grape harvest (vintage). There’ll be grape stomping, wine tasting, feasts made from local produce, and the opportunity to dance the night away!

Narrows Escape – Queensland

Based in Byron Bay countryside, the Narrow Escape Cottage is a recently renovated 1890s coach house completely self-contained and private, with uninterrupted views of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland through a two meter-square northeast-facing window. You’ll have no choice but to unwind and recharge.

Enjoy a contemporary country lunch on the farm at Frida’s Field or try your luck fishing at the Byron Creek or Wilsons River. If you’re after something more, the iconic village of Bangalow is just 10-minutes’ drive away, with Byron Bay a further 10-minutes on. Its central location means villages like Newrybar, Brunswick Heads, Federal and Mullumbimby are all within 25-minutes.

Style tip: With so much on your doorstep to explore, you’ll want to make sure your shoes can keep up with all your plans. Slip into the Men’s Jungle Moc or the Women’s Encore 2 with COMFORTBASE™ footbed for all-day comfort.

Tree Chalets - Western Australia

For a unique outdoor stay, visit the Tree Chalets situated in Acton Park with views of over 1250 beautiful white Rosegum trunked trees planted by the Robinson Family. The chalet interior truly brings the outdoors in using Australian timbers grown on the family farm including Marri Slabs, Sydney Bluegum and Tassie Bluegum from flooring to the bedside tables capturing luxury in the spirit of the natural environment combining contemporary Australian design.

With bushland, private dining, and wildlife all around you, you’ll be spoilt for choice with places to explore nearby. Some local attractions include the 1841-meter-long Busselton Jetty, the Bob’s Hollow Walk and Margaret River Wine Centre.

Style tip: the Men’s and Women’s MOAB 2 Ventilator is perfect for exploring the immediate surrounds of the chalet and keep you comfortable for a day of winery tours or bushwalking.

To mark on your calendar: The Cabin Fever Festival (13 – 22 July) food, live music, bonfire, and plenty more. Don’t miss out on this unique event while you’re in town.

Cradle Mountain Cottages – Tasmania Family-owned Cradle Mountain Highlanders Cottages are secluded, self-contained cabins near Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park. Choose from 16 rustic hand-built cabins made with Tasmanian timber designed to accommodate small groups to families. Enjoy mountain views from the spa bath or read a book near the cosy fireplace.

With the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre at your doorstep, some of Tassie’s best wineries a short drive away and an abundance of outdoor beauty accessible from every angle – you won’t be starved of excitement. We recommend having a picnic along Dove Lake or going for a hike at the Cradle Mountain National Park.

Style tip: Men’s and Women’s MOAB Speed (In Gore-Tex & non-Gore-Tex options) are the perfect choice for the Tasmanian climate – wit the full waterproof GTX leather and membrane seals out water, letting moisture escape so your feet are left warm and dry.
