Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.
Rustic outside but 5 star simple luxury inside. Fully-self contained, compact and comfy. Solar hot water & power for the perfect eco-friendly holiday. Situated between two National Parks.
The Tin Chalet is in the middle of the 'farmyard' of an organic property, next to the garden and orchard, with goats, chooks and Clydesdales across the fence and the beautiful Brodribb River a hop and a skip away. Organic produce, milk and eggs in season (prefer guests provide own linen).

The space
Recently built (still finishing small details like trim but is fully functional).
In winter this is warm, having double glazed windows and being well insulated all round. The wood stove cooks meals and keeps the place cosy.
The upstairs bedroom has a double bed.
Bathroom and laundry are off the verandah, with an inside/outside pan toilet at the end (certain considerations are needed).
The kitchen has a wood stove plus a double burner gas stove for cooking, a small 40 litre fridge and a cool room. There is a small study nook as well as a 2 seater lounge to flop on.

Other things to note
There is no mobile phone reception here, and no TV. Goongerah is in a black spot, being deep in the hills. The host's landline can be used if necessary though for taking messages or making calls. A phone box is also 1km up the road at the hall. There is wifi at the local community hall which can be used (1 km away), or when convenient, you can hook into the host's satellite wifi which has only a short range of 30m or so (doesn't reach the Chalet)

Goongerah is nestled between two national parks - the Errinudra to the east and the Snowy to the west. The tree-lined Brodribb River runs along the edge of the property and is fed from the forests and Wildreness area upstream.
Visit the rainforests and 600 yo giant trees of the Errinundra. There are several short walks and one or two drive yourself tours. The Snowy River is about 1 hour's drive and the Marlo coast is about 1 1/2 hours drive.

Location

Goongerah, Victoria, Australia

Goongerah is a small isolated valley, 70km north of Orbost and the one road through the settlement heads into NSW, Canberra or the snow fields. It is surrounded by forests and wildlife.
The community of about 40 people has one school, a phone box, a CFA shed and a hall. Most people are interested in growing their own food, using renewable energy and have a fairly progressive and environmental outlook.
The nearest shops are a long drive so please come with all your needs, and even a spare jerry of fuel if you intend to visit the parks.

During your stay
To make contact with the host or ask a question just cooee out and wander over (calling out out is the 'country doorbell'). I'm just 60 metres away behind the shed and chook yard.
