While travelling overseas for a mammoth trip is all well and fun, spontaneous road trips are an Australian rite of passage. And the thing that has really been putting the cherry on top of a local getaway is the mega movement of tiny houses.
NSW is speckled with a whole heap of mini hideaways sans wifi, but totally eco-friendly and with beautiful natural surroundings to boot, taking your off-the-grid dreams to a whole new level. So, as the tiny house wave continues to surge, it only makes sense to have a festival dedicated entirely to these innovative abodes. And that’s where the Tiny House Carnival comes in.
Hosted in Sydney and spanning two-days, the carnival will feature a range of talks that delve into everything you need to know about sustainable living, as well as the social, economic and environmental impact of tiny living, and all things inspo if you’ve ever dreamed of putting together your own tiny house. You’ll also get to meet a bunch of absolute legends and leaders in the world of tiny homes.
Alongside this, a bunch of houses will be on display from the likes of Build Tiny (the guys that practically pioneered the tiny house RV industry), kings of the little cottage Häuslein Tiny House Co., TinyPODS, Tiny Away, Designer Eco Tiny Homes, Urban Caves (who have manufactured and installed over 40 backyard cabins in the Blue Mountains), Tiny Life Creations and a whole heap more.
