The Straw Bale Hut

This is not a story about three little pigs, nor is there a wolf at the door.

This is the story about a small girl perusing a book on building straw bale houses and casually asking her mother to build her one. And so she did.

The Straw Bale Hut emerged over time and now sits comfortably in the garden overlooking the creek. It is a room like no other with round corners, crooked walls and a great king size bed. There is a unique bathroom next door designed by Brian after a winter of many guests and no hot water left for his shower- true bush ingenuity where you can stargaze while you wash.

Relax and spot the water rats frolicking along the banks of the creek from your verandah and be embraced by the comfort of those thick bale walls at night, just like that little girl did for many years before she left to conquer the world…but that is another fairy tale altogether.


What our guests say

  • Thank you for making our anniversary one to remember the service and facilities were impeccable, would highly recommend it to anyone wanting an extra special time away I the outback. Thanks again, we will be back again soon.

  • I just love it! The family, the food and the Jacks are the perfect combo for a break away in the spectacular outback in a beautiful creative country garden.

    — Megan T
  • I have never, in all my travels, come across anything like Moble. Brian, Kylie and Meg are the sincerest, most genuine and fantastically capable hosts. We arrived as coincidental customers, and will most certainly be back as friends.

    I cannot emphasise strongly enough how great everything about Moble is, and would pay 5 times the price to stay there again.

    — Chris S
  • Moble Homestead always feels like home, delightful people and superb accommodation. An unforgettable experience.

    — Di M
  • A beautiful experience, with beautiful people; well worth the drive.
