Don’t wander willy nilly around the countryside. If you’ve got a big trip coming up, why not ask the experts?
We regularly read and enjoy your magazine. As one of many couples who enjoy being nude in secluded locations, we were hoping that AT could include a feature on nudist/naturist B&Bs, weekend houses etc. Enjoying being nude in relative private means we are not interested in “nudist resorts” and are not affiliated with any nudist group or organisation. We suspect such an article would be quite popular with many of your readers and look forward to your future issues with anticipation. – Mark and Anne, NSW Southern Highlands

The readers have spoken . . . and they want skin. Knowing very little about this niche area, AT’s first stop was the B&B experts at Simply entering the keyword “nudist” in their search field returned 13 pages of eye-opening holiday gems.

For instance, there’s the $500-a-night Marlowe holiday home in Woolgoolga on the NSW Central Coast, which sleeps 11 and has “spectacular views and wildlife freely roaming about”. While it’s pretty easy to read between the lines there, once your togs are off you’ll spend the rest of the time concentrating on keeping your jaw from hanging open. It is amazingly beautiful. And very private.

It’s probably best if you’re over 18 to view the images that accompany the entry listed as the Robalwin naturist/nudist B&B in Cairns, but it can’t hurt to reveal here that three of the more risqué photo captions are “Ball game in the pool”, “Sauna by night”, and “Relaxation massage”. More food for thought.

The No.1 search listing hits on Paradise Mudgee, a cottage property described as “the perfect adult escape” and which is sufficiently in the middle of nowhere to allow you to wander around nude to your heart’s content. Similarly, the ExtraOrdinaryPeople B&B in Townsville offers a “totally private, uniquely different B&B experience for non-smoking nudist couples”. In fact, this outfit – which strives to do its “ExtraOrdinary best” for its “ExtraOrdinary guests” – will only allow you to stay if you are a non-smoking nudist. Are they a dying breed? You tell me, Mark and Anne.

And finally, from this extensive list of secluded properties, we offer you Valleydale Cottage in the Byron Bay Hinterland, which is set at the end of a half-kilometre driveway and opens onto 90 acres of private land to explore in the nuddy. A word of warning though: one of the featured activities in the area is hot air ballooning. So beware those prying eyes from the sky and prepare to scuttle indoors at a moment’s notice.
