From the rugged mountains of the grampians to the vineyards and spas of the yarra valley and daylesford – Victoria is calling. You’ll hear the call from restaurants to cellar doors, from regional bars and eclectic cafes. From food trails to forest paths, and rural walks to sunsets. Rediscover your sense of space – and a sense of place. Not too far from where you are, you’ll meet the makers, growers, crafters and creators – who strive to make their mark in their own special part of Victoria.
Head up to the Grampians and make a slow escape from a fast world. Nook On The Hill is a boutique handcrafted luxury tiny house located at the foothills of the beautiful Gariwerd/Grampians mountain ranges, just a 10 minute drive from Halls Gap. The Nook took over two years and countless people to build. From friends and friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends. Nothing ran on time and not everything went to plan. The owners resilience was pushed to its limits as they juggled one of the most severe bushfire seasons in Australia’s history. But through it all, they were never alone. Every one knew someone who could help and with the collective strength of community, the Nook was built.
The environmental impact of all materials in the Nook were mindfully considered before being selected for use in the construction. Reclaimed materials from other buildings have been salvaged and utilised wherever possible. This includes 130 year old bricks from a nearby bakery, ironbark from the gates of an old pig farm, blackbutt beams from the driving surface of an old bridge, hardwood floorboards from an old high school basketball court, Tasmanian Oak from an Otway shearing shed and the roof of a Melbourne warehouse. Each of these materials has a unique story of its own; we’re proud to give them a new life, just as they’ve given the Nook.
Victoria is glorious under the blue summer skies, but when the leaves change their colours in autumn, something simply spectacular happens. Breathe in the crisp autumn air, and travel around the state to admire the dazzling hues. Experience the magic of regional Victoria in all its autumn glory. The crunch of leaves underfoot, an explosion of red, orange and gold foliage. Marvel at nature’s spectacular show of colour through March, April and May, in leafy towns, historic parks and along tree-fringed avenues.
Watch Winter Edit
Filmed over two weeks across Victoria’s Daylesford, Grampians and Dandenong Ranges we utilised a small and agile crew that captured beautiful stills, video and drone. We also came equipped with a huge range of bespoke props including an iconic yellow vintage Canadian Canoe which enhanced the styling and mood and allowed us to add layers of texture to each image and scene.
