Versatility and variety

Minimbah has plenty of room to play with a large paved area under the house, an empty grassed block behind and open views to the hills in front.

Minimbah, everything you could want in an affordable restful family holiday.

Minimbah - 'home of the teacher'

Minimbah, an old Aboriginal name for Forster was chosen by the owners when they found out it meant 'home of the teacher'. Approval to use the name was sought from the local land council and Minimbah it is!

Minimbah is the ultimate in recycling! A house which began its life in Hawks Nest travelled to a house supermarket in Cooranbong before being purchased by the owners, who then transported it to its new home, built underneath and extended around with a large 3 metre deck. The majority of timber used in its construction is also recycled, water is solar heated and water treatment is onsite as we try to keep its footprint to a minimum. Cooling ceiling fans are installed in every room and there is excellent cross ventilation through the open plan living, kitchen and dining areas.

Great family escape!

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space for 2 families. Kids stayed downstairs and gave us all our own space. Lovely decks to relax on. Not too far to walk to lake. Approx. 15 min by boat to Forster. Everything you need in a holiday house. Open fire kept us all toasty warm!
