There is a range of different ways to get out of the city and into Victoria's amazing regional areas. You can hit up some cottages and cabins to get away from it all, you can go camping, you can find an Airbnb that's up your alley—but better yet, why not stay in a tiny house, one that is probably off-grid.
Here are some of the best tiny houses Victoria has to offer in 2022:
Stella The Stargazer
GIPPSLAND, GREAT OCEAN ROAD, GRAMPIANS
Now, this is one with some serious oomph behind it, Stella The Stargazer is a limited-edition tiny home getaway touring the state. The stunning off-the-grid stay has been designed by Ample and features a roll-out sleeping platform so you can vistas of the night sky, a glass louvres shower, a chic woodfire-centric kitchen and even a private deck with a firepit for those long evenings. Inside there's a curated hamper and wine pack that centres around local products and native ingredients, hand-selected by chef Alejandro Saravia (Victoria, Farmers Daughters).

The Olive Grove
Victoria's High Country should be on everyone's must-visit list come autumn and winter. The lush area transforms throughout the seasons turning from green to orange to brown before doing it all over again. The Olive Grove by Shacky is set unsurprisingly in an olive grove. The shack has room for two people, but unfortunately, no dogs are allowed on the property. The shack is completely off-grid but does have gas available to run the two-burner cooktop and inbuilt shower. Book The Olive Grove here.
