Callignee 2 operates on eco-friendly/sustainable living principles and is 100 % off the grid. Meaning: (not on the electricity grid) and therefore prides itself on its energy efficiency, self-sustainability and total independence.


Understanding staying in a home “off the grid”.

Callignee eco house is a sustainable masterpiece. We pride ourselves on being totally self-sufficient, which means we rely 100% on the sun to power our home.
We have state of the art lithium battery storage which means almost all year round we can live purely on the sun. However; during the winter months when there is no sun, there are times when we do need to run our generator. We have a brand new key start generator that puts power back into the lithium batteries allowing normal use of power in the home. A user guide will be included with your check in details should you run out of power during your stay. Super easy. Please consider all this before making your booking, we absolutely love the way this house operates, it’s incorporates luxury and sustainability.

Rainwater is harvested onsite, solar power harnessed and waste from the home broken down via a Biolytic Blackwater system sunken into the earth.

Callignee II is designed so that every room enjoys the North sun. The kitchen, the heart of this home opens to the North directly connecting the pool and gardens. Giving guests the option to be catered for outside by the pool via its concrete island bench or inside at the unique dining table overlooking the South facing bushland.

The open plan area shares a double sided fireplace with water jacket ensuring all its energy is used. The west elevation of the living space brings the huge eucalypts into the home.

Callignee II is a multi-level construction with the main bedroom on the lower level showcasing a kingsize bed, leading into an artistic masterpiece ensuite featuring an open glass double head shower that offers no privacy-but invites you to become one with the surrounding.

The mezzanine level houses the second guest bed and a study nook. It’s a quirky space that takes advantage of the spectacular views out to the beautiful bush landscape.

Blurring the separation of indoor and outdoor living with bi-fold doors, the dwelling interior is as minimalist and contemporary as the exterior.

The walls and ceilings are Corten rust sheet and rust paints. The lines are clean and true to the elements that form them. Recycled timber from Melbourne's Princess Pier form the ceiling of the bedroom, bathroom vanity, dining table and some flooring.

The centrally located kitchen with state of the art European 5 star energy appliances has an island bench made from concrete & steel plus a tilt window that overlooks the pool area.

The nineteen meter lap pool can be viewed through a massive lounge window that also forms part of the pool wall and doubles as a luxurious water feature.

The home is surrounded by hand selected, strategically placed granite boulders, there is a pond with stepping stone access to the home and overhead there is a suspension bridge with access to the top level.

New COVID 19 Cleaning protocol for Callignee Eco Bush House

We’ve created the following cleaning guidelines based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Callignee Eco Bush House use professional cleaners that spend a minimum of 3hrs prior to every guest staying at Callignee Eco Bush House.

When it comes to preventing the spread of germs, it helps to understand the difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning is the act of removing germs, dirt, and impurities (like when you use a soapy sponge to wipe off a visibly dirty counter or stovetop). Disinfecting is when you use chemicals to kill germs (like spraying with a bleach solution). By cleaning first, then disinfecting, you can lower the risk of infection.

Covid -19 Cleaning guidelines

1. Cleaner must wear protective gear while they clean. Personal protective items like disposable gloves, aprons or gowns, and facial coverings (like homemade or purchased masks) can provide additional protection. Make sure to wash your hands immediately after removing gloves.

2. Cleaners must ventilate rooms before they clean. The CDC recommends opening outside doors and windows and using ventilating fans to increase air circulation in the space before beginning to clean and disinfect.

3. Cleaners must ensure they wash their hands thoroughly before and after each cleaning. Use soap and water, and wash for at least 20 seconds.

4. Cleaners must clean, then disinfect. Use detergent or soap and water to remove dirt, grease, dust, and germs. Once the surface is clean, spray with a disinfectant. Let it stand for a few minutes, then wipe—cleaners must use paper towels or disposable wipes.

5. Cleaners must avoid touching their face while cleaning. To prevent the spread of germs, the CDC recommends not touching your face, nose, and eyes with unwashed hands—we advise our cleaners so pay extra attention when cleaning.

6. Our cleaners use the right disinfectant. Most common household disinfectants registered by the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as cleaning solutions with diluted household bleach or at least 70% alcohol, are believed to be effective against the coronavirus. Cleaners pay special attention to frequently touched surfaces, like light switches, doorknobs, remote controls, and faucet handles. (See our full list of surfaces to disinfect at the bottom of the page.)

7. Cleaners must not forget about sofas, rugs, drapes, and other soft, porous surfaces. Carefully remove any visible dirt or grime, then clean with the appropriate cleaners indicated for use on these surfaces. If possible, machine-wash items according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

8. Cleaners clean all the linens at the highest heat setting recommended by the manufacturer. That includes bed sheets, mattress covers, hand and bath towels, kitchen towels, and blankets. Cleaners remember to wear gloves when handling dirty laundry, and take care to avoid shaking laundry, which could increase the spread of germs.

9. Clean and disinfect laundry baskets and hampers. If possible, consider using a liner that is either disposable or that you can throw into the washing machine.

10. Empty the vacuum cleaner after every cleaning. Cleaner must wipe down the vacuum cleaner with disinfectant, along with appliances like your dishwasher and washing machine.

11. Cleaners will leave brand new rubbish bin bags for the guests.

13. Cleaners dispose of or wash our cleaning supplies. When you’re using paper towels, disinfectant wipes, and other disposable cleaning supplies, cleaners ensure they take their trash out after you’re done. If our cleaners are using cleaning cloths and other reusable products, make sure to machine-wash them at the highest heat setting appropriate for the material.

14. When the cleaners are finished for the day they must safely remove any cleaning gear. When they are done cleaning, immediately remove any protective outerwear like gowns, gloves, or masks, and dispose of them or wash accordingly. Remember to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds afterwards.

Dont forgot to make time to check out the magnificent Tarra Bulga National Park - 20 minutes drive from Callignee II.

Tarra Bulga National Park is famous for its lush gullies, giant mountain ash trees and tree ferns. Tarra Bulga National Park is one of only four major areas of cool temperate rainforest in the state.

Pack a Picnic under a mountain ash!!
Have lunch at the Tarra Bulga Picnic area, just off the Grand Ridge Road, or the Tarra Valley picnic area off Tarra Valley Road. Both spots are set amongst the giant mountain ash and shady fronds of tree ferns and offer tables, fireplaces, toilets and picnic shelters.

Bushwalks, waterfalls and rivers
Try out one of the numerous walking tracks that emanate from the picnic areas. Meander through the forest, head south down to Tarra Falls, or take the Fern Gully Nature Walk, which includes magnificent views along the famous suspension bridge.


The rainforest is a haven for plants and wildlife. Discover a wide variety of birds including the pilotbird, yellow tailed black cockatoo, eastern whipbird, and currawongs. Visit in the evening when the forest comes to life as possums, owls and bats emerge to feed. If you're lucky, you may see a lyrebird scratching the forest floor looking for food or catch a glimpse of some of the other inhabitants like wombats, swamp wallabies, gliders and platypuses.
