Everybody knows that the best things come in small packages – so when it comes to a getaway take a look at these best tiny cabins in Queensland for a tiny bit of inspiration.

From the Island shores of Magnetic Island to the deep Daintree Rainforest and the vast South Queensland Hinterland, tiny cabins are located almost everywhere in the state of Queensland. 

The perfect place to unwind, relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for the weekend (or week). Getting back to nature is often what we all need to rejuvenate so be sure to save some of these next time you’re looking for a place to get away.

1. Palmer and Gunn

Featuring on the front of multiple travel and lifestyle magazines, we think it’s fair to say that this tiny cabin is one of the most beautiful in the state. 

Hidden in the Gold Coast hinterland right next to a beautiful creek this rustic little shack ticks all the boxes for the perfect nature getaway whilst still having all the luxuries of a hot tub and aircon. 

It’s located just outside of the Springbrook National Park which boasts spectacular waterfalls, lush rainforest, ancient trees, and impressive views – you won’t be lacking something to do, that’s for sure.

Cook up a feast with the fully equipped kitchenette and patio BBQ or venture outside and cook on the outdoor fireplace while watching the beautiful country stars. 

The best part of this tiny home could be that you get to meet the hand-raised farm animals up close, or it could be that you can snack on hand-picked seasonal organic farm fruit, veggies & herbs… we just love everything about this tiny abode.
