Kestrel Nest EcoHut
A luxury EcoHut at Highfield Farm and Woodland, nestled in rolling farmland and perched above a rocky mountain stream. A conservation area protecting critically endangered habitat, a step away.
Just 10 minutes off the Hume Highway, or seven minutes from the Snowy Mountains Highway, Kestrel Nest is easily accessible for people travelling to Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide or Sydney.
Off-grid and off-line but with all the luxuries. Outdoor bath on the verandah, stargazing hammocks, fireplace inside, firepit outside.
The perfect off-grid and off-line eco-retreat for couples or small families. Your eco-retreat doesn't mean you go without. Solar panels and battery storage will guarantee energy for your stay, while panoramic double-glazed windows will allow glorious views.
A well-equipped kitchen will have you cooking up a storm with their farm-fresh produce and locally sourced produce available for purchase. Special hampers and local wine are also available.
With no nearby town or road, or farm-house, the night sky will have you amazed.
The hut is named after the magnificent Kestrel - the only bird seen near the EcoHut for two weeks following the January 2020 Black Summer fires that came so close to their hut.
One of only six finalists in the 2022 National Banksia Sustainable Tourism Awards and the only finalist from NSW.
