Below we have put together some helpful information to prepare for your upcoming stay. We hope you enjoy your magical outdoor adventure – you might feel like you’re miles away from anywhere but you are safe on our little working farm, so please feel free to wander around and visit the chooks and alpacas, peruse the veggie patch or pop into our artist studio at your leisure (call Richard Payne to arrange a studio visit on 0417 379 162).

IMPORTANT – Arrival Info


The Bubbletent is inflated so it’s important to observe the following safety rules to prevent it from deflating!

  1. It looks like an Igloo – the tunnel part is an airlock, so it is essential that you only have one door zipper open at a time or the bubble will go down
  2. Please treat the zipper with care – just like your trousers, the flap can get caught!
  3. The BubbleTent is made of plastic – please do not use sharp implements or wear outdoor shoes inside
  4. Please do not change the vent panels – they are designed to keep rain out and regulate the BubbleTent airflow (and keep it up)
