FAQ

HOW MANY TENTS DO YOU HAVE?

We have three at the moment. For two adults only.

DO YOU HAVE GROUP BOOKINGS?

We don’t as yet, please subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of our website to be the first to be notified.

WHAT FOOD OPTIONS DO YOU HAVE?

At this stage we don’t provide food provisions, you would need to bring your own, please see ‘Your Stay’ as to what cooking utensils we have. In terms of where you can get food around here, Mudgee is a 45min drive away with world-class cafes and eateries, Capertee Service stations plus Capertee Hotel provides a decent meal some 25min and there is a cafe with varied opening hours some 10min away. We’d suggest stocking up in Lithgow (if not before you leave home) if you’re coming from Sydney.

DOES IT GET HOT IN THERE?

The tent works with the aid of a turbine that keeps replenishing the air inside the tent which acts somewhat as a poor excuse for an air-conditioner, once the sunshield is up on a hot day it does get better and bearable but for guest staying two nights or more we’d ask you to put up the sunshield on during the day and suggest you don’t spend more time than necessary inside the tent between 10am-2pm on clear hot days even with the sunshield up. (Virgo with the air con is obviously a different story). Every tent has a spot that offers a feature in the shade (Cancer with the floating daybed, Leo with Hammock spot and Virgo with the love seat) plus a daybed with a hood on which does provide shade.

DOES IT GET COLD IN THERE?

Since the property was chosen for its altitude and remoteness in the country it does fluctuate in temperature. The sweet meteorologic irony is that on a clear night the heat escapes rewarding you with breathtaking views of the heavens. We’d encourage you to come prepared for four seasons even in summer, at a minimum, beanie and a cosy jumper. We do have electric blankets in the tents during the cooler months too not to mention a fire outside and the super cosy and warm bed!  See ‘What to bring’ for other inclusions.

WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE AROUND?

Please see ‘Things to do’ page

WHAT'S THE EXACT ADDRESS SO I CAN GOOGLE MAP IT?

To preserve the privacy and enjoyment of our paid guests we only disclose that upon booking in a welcome pack, for which you will receive within two weeks of your stay. Please see ‘Map’ for further details on the location.

HOW SAFE/SECLUDED IS IT?

It’s a clear tent and in some of the remotest and darkest skies in the world! While for some the exhilarating experience can at the same time be filled with excitement and dread, we get it. Rest assured in Australia we’re lucky that we don’t have any predatorial animals and we’re situated on a 1000+acre property at the end of a road, meaning that you’ll be well away from any prying onlookers. Every step has been taken to ensure you have it all to yourself! There are plenty of cute sheep, goats and some of the most spectacular wildlife in Australia. Still do exercise common sense, don’t feed the animals, don’t leave food unattended and wear footwear (thats provided) when stepping off the decking. If there are any problems there is a caretaker that is always on call 24/7 and the caretakers cabin is hidden away some 800m away from the furthest tent site. All contact numbers are in the welcome pack.

ARE YOU PET FRIENDLY?

We sadly can’t accomodate any furry friends.

CAN I BRING MY BABY/TODDLER/CHILD?

We sadly can’t accomodate any ankle-bitting ones either. We are an adult only campsite and unfortunately do not have facilities suitable for children, be they well-behaved babies, pre-teens or teens. You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to make a booking and stay.

IS THERE PHONE RECEPTION/WIFI?

Yes there is at the tent site for most phones, however sometimes it does drop out, naturally we can’t control when this happens.

CAN YOU BOOK ONLY ONE NIGHT?

While we do have a two-night minimum stay, when we do find ourselves with the odd day left for a booking we are able to make an exception at our discretion, however the exemption carries a cleaning fee of $120 for tents with a wood-fired bathtub (Leo and Virgo) and $80 for Cancer. This fee covers the additional cleaning and restocking required as well as the resources around the wood-fired hot tub in our dry region.
