If you want absolute privacy, this quiet cabin located 30 minutes away from Brisbane City should be at the top of your list. Also ideal for a romantic getaway, you will be sleeping on a princess bed with a four-corner curtain canopy. While here, you will be surrounded by lush greenery in the garden, so we encourage you to take a break and lie on a hammock outside. The kitchenette is sufficient if you want to put together a simple snack. For full meals, there are restaurants close by. There is no WiFi, but the hosts provide guests with a free Telstra SIM to ease connectivity.

Be prepared for a vintage treat when you book at The Pilot. The 1959 caravan has been totally revamped by a boat builder—and yes, you might wake up thinking you’re at sea. Located next to the owner’s home, you will enter through a private entrance. If you are a digital nomad, it’s good to know that the bed can be collapsed to form two desks. It is a five-minute walk to cafes and the shopping strip. Transport links are close by if you want to get to the city centre. The caravan runs on full power and running water with a gas cooker and a mini-fridge.

This cabin in the woods is almost camouflaged with its surroundings which is cool if you want to feel like you’re roughing it out. However, the interior is far from what it seems on the outside. Functional and homey, this cabin has one queen bed and a couch that can fit one. You will have your shower and toilet with a simple kitchenette consisting of a kettle, a toaster, a microwave, a fridge, and an outdoor gas cooker. Located south of Brisbane River in Camira, it is only five minutes away from Ipswich Motorway and is near other conveniences such as cafes, supermarkets, and public transport.

If you want to get away from it all and huddle in someplace quiet without sacrificing comfort, The Bush Studio at Armstrong Creek is your ideal destination. Simple living at its finest, this one-bedroom wooden cabin is nestled among eucalyptus trees on a hill “far away”. You will have to bring your toiletries and food you would want to have. The kitchen is well-equipped with an outdoor barbecue and dining area. Go out and explore the surroundings when you’re here. The cabin’s location is between a number of Queensland’s best mountain drives, Lake Samsonvale, and many walking tracks. Though the cabin is super comfy, don’t stay in for too long!

A smile will be painted on your face when you open the doors of this cabin to reveal scenic views of Vernor. The interior has an old-time charm as it is a historic Sawmill office that was relocated by the hosts to their land. Perfect for a romantic getaway, the home is located just four minutes from the township of Fernvale and a minute down the hill to Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. The kitchen only has a fridge, a kettle, and a toaster, so you have to head to the nearby township. The hosts will also provide you with breakfast during your stay.

Come for the food, arts, and nature
Don’t rush your holiday when in Brisbane. Spend a few days in Brisbane CBD and check out the shopping centres and restaurants. You also need to head out and experience the glorious nature the city has to offer. Just remember to put on your sunscreen because the sun rises really early.
