In a statement on November 4, McConaughey opened up about his fond memories of the country — which date back to when he was 19-years-old and volunteering on a Central Coast farm working with horses.

"Australia has always had a special place in my heart," he said.

"I lived there for a year out of high school and have worked there many times making movies. An original Australian initiation is its rugged beauty.

Mother nature demands you engage with her.

"Whether it's the outback, the Barrier Reef, or the farms on the Central Coast, I've enjoyed the natural beauties of Australia for years.

And now I'm coming back to meet and celebrate the unwavering conviction of Aussies who work tirelessly to preserve and protect the beautiful wilderness and wildlife that is their own."

A percentage of the proceeds generated from the cabin and $1 from every bottle of Wild Turkey's Longbranch sold in November and December will be donated to Unyoked's charity partner, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.
