Now more than ever, tapping into simple pleasures and getting lost in nature provides a soothing remedy for modern times.
Twin brothers Cameron and Chris Grant launched their unique accommodation business Unyoked in 2016 as a way to escape the ordinary and seek out moments in nature, away from their fast-paced city jobs.
Focusing on architect-designed cabins inspired by the tiny house movement, the Unyoked properties are found on private land offerings in the rural countryside around New South Wales, Victoria, and now, right here in Queensland.
Designed to get you out of your modern bubble and back into nature, Unyoked is not a hotel. It’s all about adventure-and-chill, and finding ways to access the wilderness more often, so you can slow down, retreat and reconnect. Checking out so you can check in, if you will.
Everything has been carefully curated by Unyoked to allow you to unplug. All of the tiny cabins have a small footprint but a big focus on living off the grid with sustainability, longevity and functionality – think solar-powered systems, rainwater tanks, gas-stove kitchens and amenities for cooking in the outdoor Dutch oven or over a campfire.
Unyoked is now taking bookings for their very first Queensland cabin, hidden away in the Flagstone area, one-and-a-half hours drive south-west of Brisbane. Visitors are sent coordinates a couple of days out from their stay, keeping the precise location of the hideout a treasured secret to discover.
Surrounded by the beauty of the bush in a large valley, you can escape the ordinary and regain the freedom you thought you’d lost. The waitlist is open now. To find out more, head to unyoked.co
