The AirBnb world has been taken over by this whirlwind, Sarah Andrews. You probably know her via her Tasmania cottage, Captains Rest.

She is just wrapping up the most recent round of AirBnb Masterclasses (now known as The Hosting Masterclass) . And I was invited along to capture The Storied Home workshop held by Sarah and her network of clever women in the Byron Bay Hinterland at the end of March.

What a beautifully inspiring day it was.. scroll for the a little look into the day at this gorgeous new venue Friday Hut Dining.

Saltbush Retreat

Early in February, I visited Longreach for work. Longreach is set in the flat landscape that is Outback Queensland, and green-grey native foliage against the red soil it is an eye catching place.

One of the properties I photographed was Saltbush Retreat. They have a few styles of accomodation but my favourites were their slab huts and stables.

These are the slab huts. They are cosy little spaces that are warm and inviting. I would have loved to actually have spent time relaxing on those chairs on the front deck.

Below are the stables, they have beautiful concrete and corrugated iron interiors…

One of the special facilities at Saltbush retreat is their bath terrace, featuring three clawfoot baths, a perfect spot to cool down while enjoying an afternoon glass of wine I would say.
