THE YANAKIE HOUSE AND CABINS
The refurbishment of the Yanakie House and Cabins has allowed me to express my lifelong interest in art, collecting and making. We recreated and modernised the house and 3 cabins, simply bringing life back into the already existing framework. Spaces were refined further with my collections of art and unique ornaments but I was determined to provide a connection to the land.
I have fond childhood memories of spending Christmas in my uncles VW combi on Warahtah Bay, so when I dsicvered the property I immediately loved the connection I developed with the space, the land and its heritage.
To the East, Foster, Port Franklin and Toora open onto Corner Inlet. The region has a strong aboriginal heritage, nearby is Toora, (which translates from the Koori Gunai as “women who look after the fire and keep the fire alight’. Yanakie, a Koori name from the Gunai language, is interpreted as “ between the waters’ draws strong parallels to it's incredible heritage. To our South West is beautiful Waratah Bay and Sandy Point with their fabulous swimming beaches.
