About Us

We are a family of four that escaped the city for a place that offered a slower pace with more space. We’ve loved every aspect of this transition – fresh air, room for our boys to run wild and space to grow our own produce.

We have created Wildernest as a slow stay experience. A place for you to unplug, unwind and to take a break from it all. A totally off-the-grid escape and one that is eco-friendly and treads lightly on its beautiful surrounds, but has all the modern comforts.

Wildernest is based in the beautiful Southern Highlands region of NSW, just a stones throw away from both Sydney and Canberra.  See here for location.

A place in the wilderness where you can pause, ponder and play.

Just moments walk from your tiny house, you'll find yourself in the forest surrounded by 100 year old gums, spotting a mob of kangaroos and following the sound of the trickling stream to a small waterfall.
Take off for a day of mountain biking through the Wingello State Forest, or bushwalking to see the spectacular gorges and waterfalls in the Morton National Park.
Explore the delights of the local villages, wineries, breweries, antique stores, flower farms, truffle hunts… the list goes on.
