‘The Castle’ is indisputably the greatest achievement of Australian cinema, ever.
(And if you don’t agree with that, jump into the comments section and I will personally make a man out of you.)
It’s got family values, baddies who’re taken to task in court, mullets, Eric Bana, and of course, at the centre of it all: the concept of a home.
A family home. A place of belonging. A place to celebrate the highs and commiserate the lows.
The Kerrigan’s iconic family holiday house in Bonnie Doon was an escape for them; somewhere to go fishing, with 10% brains and 95% muscle. And that place is now available to rent on Airbnb.
Yep, for AUD$201a night, you can live the real Australian dream. You little ripper.
It’s been listed by owner Mel, who bought the place two years ago and has since renovated it to it’s utmost glory.
It’s still overlooking huge powerlines, Con’s punching bag is strung up on a tree, and greyhound Coco‘s kennel is still sitting pretty. Heck, super fans will be stoked to see Tracey’s diploma of hairdressing proudly framed on the wall.
Check out some of the listing’s piccies:
Describing the lounge, pictured last, Mel writes:
“Sit and watch the collection dvd’s, of Hey Hey It’s Saturday just like Darrel Karrigan [sic] did or watch whatever your own family favourite show might be.”
For those sceptical about what Bonnie Doon actually offers, you’d be stoked to know there’s actually a fair bit to do there. It’s a short drive from Mount Buller, not to mention the fact that it’s got a big arse lake that’s perfect for water sports.
What do we say to that?
We’re going to Bonnie Doon! We’re going to Bonnie Doon! We’re going to Bonnie Doon!
