Natascha and Stephen were empty-nesters who had spent a lot of time travelling between India and Australia. When their son was able to purchase an acreage that allowed for other dwellings, the couple jumped at the opportunity to erect their off-grid yurt.
They’re both teachers, and while the 8-meter-wide yurt might not be “tiny” to some, this downsize has allowed them to get closer to the land and live more sustainably. One look out their window and you see why you might choose this lifestyle!
I love that while Natascha has downsized significantly, she didn’t cut back to the bare minimum — for example, she loves spinning and weaving, and kept the tools of her trade that she needed! She shared more wisdom with us in the Q&A you can read after the photo tour of her yurt home. Enjoy!

Going Tiny While Keeping The Tools of Your Trade
Yurts bring all the joy of tiny living, and make it round! This vacation yurt in Australia checks all the boxes for a fun holiday, with a stargazing dome, comfortable queen bed, and lovely windows with bush views.
The yurt itself has a large deck complete with a kitchenette and outdoor shower, and there’s a composting toilet in the nearby outhouse. Also on the private property is a shared yoga studio with a sauna and a pool. Luxurious!

Wooden Yurt Tucked in the Australian Bush
This is the Yurt Treetop Escape in Australia where you can vacation via Airbnb!
Although you’ve probably seen many yurts with canvas exteriors, this one is timber-framed (my personal favorite). It has 12 sides and you’ll find a comfy bed, full bathroom and a kitchenette inside. It sits in rainforest paradise and the handmade picnic table outside is a perfect place to enjoy a meal. Get more details below.
