Small but spectacular - three’s the TINY HOUSE charm in the Scenic Rim


The Tiny House phenomenon is sweeping the globe and luckily for getaway-loving Australians, the Scenic Rim has three of the best tiny house experiences in Baya Tiny House outside Boonah, famous Binna Burra Lodge's  Tiny Wild Houses at Lamington National Park, and the about-to-open, Moogie Pod on spectacular Lake Moogerah.


Whether your idea of the perfect tiny house is surrounded by ancient mountains and rainforest, a patchwork of magnificent paddocks, or water and an endless sky of stars, here’s three Tiny Houses that promise huge experiences, across the famed Scenic Rim, just an hour from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast in Queensland. And Mother Nature approves!

Baya Tiny House – Cannon Creek, Boonah

The very first Tiny House in the Scenic Rim, Baya is also a luxe eco-retreat, which means once you stay there for one night, you’ll want to relocate forever. The plush queen Baya bed is in a loft, giving you a front row view to shooting stars and the extraordinary skies the region is famous for, and there’s a comfy kitchen (with gas stove and full-sized fridge), and a bathroom with rainfall shower, all lovingly appointed. Baya is owned by the Ketchup Bank team who can provide a host of itineraries, from wine and brewery tours to farm gate trips, food tastings and cooking classes. Plus you can have a Scenic Rim Farm Box delivered to your door, bursting with local produce to prepare in your tiny house.

Quick Fact: Baya means ‘to come in to view’ in the language of the Yugambeh people, the traditional custodians of the region.

Tiny Wild Houses – Binna Burra

The name says it all – welcome to Tiny Wild Houses atop the Bellbird cliffs, at the famous Lamington National Park. So yes, your outlook is spectacular, aided by an impressive ceiling-to-floor window with unrivaled views of Woonoongoora and the Ship Stern Range. There’s a cosy queen bed, two-seater couch, reverse cycle air-conditioning, an outdoor teak dining table, fully equipped kitchenette, and a separate bathroom. Plus it’s well-appointed and boasts Wallawa botanical toiletries, books, games and free Wi-Fi access. Binna Burra Tea House is just a three minute drive away, or a fantastic 25 minute walk, for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and Groom’s Cottage Bushwalker’s Bar has drinks, light meals, and nibbles or you can order meals and locally sourced produce or cheeseboards. Bushwalking fans – you are welcome!

Moogie Pod – Lake Moogerah

Opening at the end of this month is the gorgeously named Moogie Pod, a Tiny House custom-built from a deluxe container featuring a contemporary studio room, ensuite, a queen bed, bathroom with Botanical toiletries, magnificent views to Lake Moogerah and a night sky that’s an endless carpet of stars. It’s perfect for couples. The complete front of the container is glass, meaning the view is your constant canvas, plus there’s a deck, firepit, BBQ and private bush garden; it’s powered by solar energy and nods to the environment. It’s the final in the Moogie trilogy, with bigger sisters, Moogie House and Moogie Glamp a good distance away, all at home on 19 acres of koala-protected habitat with an abundance of wildlife. Order a Scenic Rim breakfast hamper or Scenic Rim Farm Box full of locally sourced produce. 

Yes sir, we can boogie … boogie woogie at moogie (sorry, we had to!!)
