This Couple Turned An Old Fisherman's Shack Into An Eco-Friendly Beach House

The Little Black Shack lies along Australia’s Great Mackerel Beach, a tiny coastal community of roughly 40 full-time residents. The two-bedroom home is one of just a hundred or so dwellings in the suburb, which you can only access through the Myra, a wooden ferry that departs out of the more populous Palm Beach.

This remoteness allows visitors a unique opportunity to unplug and reconnect with nature, but that isn’t the only thing that makes the Little Black Shack special. The home was a labor of love for Jamie and Ingrid Kwong, who transformed the former fisherman’s cottage into the sustainable, scenic property it is today.
