Kestrel Nest EcoHut, Mount Adrah

Take up residence at the off-grid and offline Kestrel Nest EcoHut for rejuvenation and rest on rolling farmland above a rocky mountain stream. The hut, just a short drive from both the Snowy Valleys and Wagga Wagga, boasts a well-equipped kitchen that comes with a loaf of the farm’s very own sourdough, hammocks for observing a clear sky full of stars, an outdoor bath and firepit, additional hampers and wines and a toasty indoor fireplace set between floor-to-ceiling windows with a backdrop of sweeping views. This incredible hut was named so because the kestrel bird was the only bird seen for two weeks following the January 2020 fires.

Mill Cabin, Crackenback

At Mill Cabin you sit high above Thredbo valley, a stone’s throw from the slopes. There are private views of the Snowy Mountains and beyond every way you look. It’s chilly out but you’ll be toasty warm inside, tucked within the stone-clad, Japanese interior-style cabin at Crackenback. This off-grid stay nods to the stockman huts of the region’s past, but with modern luxuries. There’s an outdoor, woodfired Japanese-style bath; a fully functional modern kitchen; a comfy queen-sized bed dressed in soft linen; and the centrepiece, a classic wood-burning fireplace framed by big glass doors, perfect for watching snow fall outside.
