While the tiny home scene is predominantly designed for couples, the legends at Heyscape have expanded their line-up to include some beauties just for families. At Tim The TIny Cabin you'll have all the usual fun of staying on a remote farm plus board games, BBQ and your own private outdoor cinema for family movie nights under the stars—with cosy bunks for the kids and an oh-so comfy queen by the stunning main window for mum and dad.

The kids probably won’t realise just how lucky they are to spend a night or two at one of Australia’s best hotels, but you sure will. COMO The Treasury is the pinnacle of luxury accommodation in Perth, and they’ve recently developed a curated family package designed to elevate the experience for guests travelling with younger children. We’re talking fluffy bathrobes and slippers for the whole fam, the most adorable pop-up playhouse tent, colouring sets, books and complimentary dining at POST for kids under 12. Now, you just have to explain that being treated this good is not an everyday thing.

The Wilding

If you’re looking for an excuse to get all of your nearest and dearest together under one roof for some rest and relaxation, this is it. The Wilding has been deliberately designed to encourage wholesome, screen-free family time, with plenty of instruments, board games and outdoor activities for your gang to get stuck into. Spend your days splashing around with the kids in the free-standing magnesium pool, or take your relaxation to the next level with private massages and yoga classes (available on request).

Set on a sweeping acreage near Ludlow National Park, the kids can look forward to seeing all the sheep, cows and horsies at this modern three-bedroom farmhouse. It’s great year-round, but we reckon Busselton Hithergreen really shines when the weather starts to cool. You can enjoy a glass of red outside by a roaring fireplace while the kids cuddle up inside with a movie or fight over whose turn it is on the Playstation. Bonus points for the fact this spot is also pet friendly.
