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 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 and suggests guest don’t spend more time than necessary inside the tent between 10am-2pm on clear hot days even with the sunshield up. There is a hammock spot in the shade, plus a daybed with a hood to lounge on which does the trick as well as numerous activities to do around the property and within an hours drive beyond (please the ‘Things to do page’).

DOES IT GET COLD IN THERE?

Since the property was chosen for it’s 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 the 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. There is a fire for when outside and one the best pieces of feedback we get is how cosy and warm the bedding is even on a cold night. After all it is a version of camping 🙂

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 no later that up to two weeks before your stay. Please see ‘Map’ for further details on the location.

HOW SAFE/SECLUDED IS IT?

It’s a clear tent, it’s remote in some of the darkest skies in the world. It’s a mixture of excitement and dread for some people at the same time, we get it. It is a 1000acre property at the end of a road, site is tucked away in a paddock 3km away from the front entrance. Every step has been taken to ensure you have it all to yourself. There is 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 available 24/7 and a the managers cabin is hidden away some 800m away from the 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 or babies or teens with iPhones. 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 FOR VIRGO?

We do find ourselves with the odd day left out for Virgo and sometimes if a guest requests it for a special singular day we might be able to accomodate it at our discretion, however the exemption can carry a fee of up to $120 to cover the additional cleaning required as well as the resources around the wood-fired hot tub and herb garden in our dry region. This applies Sun-Thur only.
