An A-Frame on the top of the world
At the top of a hill on the 7000-acre Kimo Estate sits a modest A-Frame cabin, with a swoonworthy view across Gundagai. At a compact 28 square metres, JR’s Hut makes a big impact, on a small footprint. This cosy getaway is specifically designed to encourage visitors to disconnect with the digital, and be truly immersed in the natural world – as such, it’s equipped with only the basics – and electricity is limited to a small solar panel with batteries to run low-voltage lighting. With a strict ‘no phone’ policy, the only tweets you will receive here are of the local bird life variety!
