Eyre Way Yambara
Yambara, a tiny house on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, is the first offering from start-up company Eyre Way. Couple Amanda and Tim Hoggs have also opened a second, Maldhi, in the same area.
“Yambara” means “away, out of sight” in Barngarla, the local Aboriginal language, and the property is located on remote farmland, about 30 minutes’ drive from Port Lincoln and 100 metres from its own private beach.
The couple created the eight-by-three-metre dwelling in collaboration with local designer and builder Duncan Moore. Its spectacular position is optimised with expansive windows, which afford views of Sleaford Bay, Whalers Way and Lincoln National Park in every direction, plus a roomy deck. There’s a fireplace overlooking the private beach, and an outdoor shower.
It’s spacious inside, too. Yambara sleeps up to four people: there’s a king-sized bed on the lower floor and a double-bed on a mezzanine level. Each one is dressed in 100 per cent flax linen by Bed Threads and I Love Linen. Other luxe touches include a double shower, a gold-splashed designer kitchen, a breakfast bar, and Moroccan tiles handmade by Victorian company Tiles of Ezra. The house is also 100 per cent solar-powered and self-sufficient.
