Grand Designs Australia: Goobarragandra, NSW (Season 10 Premieres Thurs 5 May on LifeStyle)



Goobarragandra, NSW: Trevor Robinson enjoys a challenge, and nothing beats flying his ultralight aircraft over the NSW Snowy Mountains. Trevor’s hobby is all the more remarkable given that he was paralysed when he was hit by a car while riding his motorcycle a few years ago.

Trevor and his wife, Jeanette, are now looking to build a very special home near nature where Trevor can move around easily in his wheelchair. When a 15-acre block in the Snowy Mountains’ spectacular Goobarragandra hills comes on the market, they pounce with plans to build a remarkable underground home overlooking their 1.5-kilometer river frontage.

With Trevor as project manager, the construction begins, but as the months pass, his health begins to deteriorate, limiting not only how much time he can spend on-site, but also whether he will be able to move to his underground retreat at all.

When this hugely popular series returns for a tenth season, your jaw will drop with the incredible homes on display. Host Peter Maddison showcases innovative designs from across the country, and the solutions this season are astounding, whether it’s transforming a small plot of land or repurposing a dairy shed.

Airdate: Thursday 5 May 2022 at 8.30pm on LifeStyle.
