One of the upsides of being one of the most isolated cities in the world is that Perth is surrounded, for hundreds of kilometres in every direction, by nothing but pristine nature. That means there’s plenty of space for beautiful tiny homes, designed specifically to keep you as comfortable as possible while off the grid. And the best part? Unlike hotels or larger units, tiny homes are built to be intimate and sustainable, offering the perfect solution for solo getaways or couples’ retreats.

Whether you’re exploring the hills, Fremantle or even the garden of Kings Park, right in the city centre, we have a tiny house in Perth for you.

Heyscape Kings Park

Best tiny house in the Perth city centre

Heyscape is a proudly WA-owned company dedicated to connecting the state’s residents and visitors to unforgettable stays in luxe off-grid accommodation.

Specifically, Kings Park – the city’s main park and one of its top tourist attractions. There are three cabins in different locations in the park, each with their own stunning outlook. These tiny houses are here for a good time, not a long time – but we’re betting they’ll stick around.
