SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS, AUSTRALIA: Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman install a gatehouse and other security measures at their $6.5 million Southern Highlands estate. The couple reportedly received approval for a $32,450 sentry box at Bunya Hill Farm.
According to the motion passed by Wingecarribee Council, “landlords must have security guards on the premises when they are at home.” They also rent temporary access gates for the property and portable toilets for security guards while they are stationed on the farm.

According to Brett Goff Building Design and Drafting, the proposed design “will look as if it were part of the original front doors”, reports the Daily Mail. Nicole and Keith’s 45-acre estate in the Southern Highlands features ten original marble fireplaces, a grand carved cedar staircase, traditional sandstone porches and pressed metal ceilings. Keith and Nicole have added an 18 meter swimming pool, fitness room and full size tennis court since purchasing the house. Large grassy mounds have also been planted around the house to keep prying eyes away.
The celebrity couple’s other lavish properties
The couple also own a series of apartments in the exclusive Latitude building in North Sydney. They originally paid $6 million for the penthouse apartment in 2009 to Celebrity Apprentice contestant Mark Bouris. Three years later, they paid $7 million for the adjoining penthouses, which they then combined to create the mega-residence.

According to Domain in 2021, the Oscar-winning actress paid $2.78 million for an apartment below her penthouse in the high-end skyscraper. The sub-penthouse apartment has two bedrooms, a spacious balcony and stunning harbor views through floor-to-ceiling windows that span the entire living area. The chic apartment also offers access to a heated pool, gym and sauna. It also has a modern kitchen.
When the Hollywood couple are in Sydney, they use their $2.68 million 19th floor apartment as their home office. Like their Bunya Hill estate in the Southern Highlands, their four apartments in the Latitude building are all registered under company names. Nicole hasn’t owned a property in her own name since 1993. Around that time, she paid $81,000 for her younger sister Antonia to move into a one-bedroom apartment in Mosman.
