“We’re goin’ to Bonnie Doon! We’re goin’ to Bonnie Doon!” And now you can too.
In news that’s going straight to the pool room, possibly the most iconic holiday house in Aussie cultural history, the Kerrigan’s Bonnie Doon shack from the movie The Castle, has just hit Airbnb, meaning you can now stay there IRL.
The corrugated iron three-bedroom Victorian retreat sleeps up to eight guests (they’ve added an actual custom-built “pool room” out back that sleeps two) and it’s available to rent from as little as $200 a night, so no need to tell ’em they’re dreaming.
It also features plenty of awesome slices of Castle memorabilia, including Con’s boxing bag hanging off a gum tree outside…
… Plus an ad for the Trading Post, a kennel for Coco, a framed copy of Tracey Kerrigan’s “Diploma of Hairdressing” from Sunshine Tafe and — yep — even jousting sticks.
No word if they’ve dug a hole in honour of Dale, though. But you can always dig your own.
Perfect for those who love the sound of a two stroke engine on full throttle.
