  1. Apart from the tree this place looks in reasonable nick, is it still used? Not sure why this being beyond my experience, just seem slightly unreal. Paul at Leeds daily photo

  2. Haha, that's fantastic!! I guess this makes the trees and the cottage interdependent on each other, right??

    Have a great day!!

  3. An incredible sight! One wall appears charred! I wonder if fire may have scattered seeds and ignited growth in the cabin?

  4. Thx for all your comments. We stayed at Cherokee Mountain Retreat in Mt Macedon recently (link below). This bush shack was on the property. I think the roof has actually been extended to wrap around the trees as an artwork. It's ver clever and unique. We thoroughly recommend the Cherokee Mountain Retreat. A wmderful escape in an isolated location only an hour from Melbourne. The actual accommodation is wonderful and has no gum trees growing through it.

  5. The entire thing is mind-boggling, and incredibly beautiful. The tree dripping with bark, just the majesty of it. Maybe that charred section is where the old fireplace was, although with all the resectioning, it could be anything. I will investigate that Stay for 2012.

  11. Huh. That is one surreal scene. Maybe it's meant to be symbolic. How nature can't be tamed by man, something along those lines... good one, Joe.
