With alternative weekend escapes becoming the latest trend, we can’t help but be in awe of the magical accommodation offerings created by Bubble Tent Australia. The owner’s are a couple, two actors in their early 30’s. The idea came after returning from an overseas holiday and not being able to obtain an experience they so craved. Owner Mayu Iwasak says, “You could say we're spoilt millennials indulging in our ultimate fantasy! Except that we want to share it with people, so we are not that spoilt, right?”


What are Bubble Tents?

These clear inflatable bubbles are more than just a tent. Guests feel completely detached from city life but have all the amenities of a hotel and some unique additions; a comfortable bed of course, eco friendly bathrooms and fresh running water. Owner Mayu says “they provide pretty much everything, including a telescope with which guest can take a close-up photo of the moon using only their smartphone, an iPad with birdwatching apps, curated playlists and the most amazing stargazing app called Luminos, which allows you to take a virtual tour of the solar system and beyond”.


Where is this stargazers heaven located?

Located about a 200km drive out of Sydney on a 1000 plus acre property between Mudgee and Lithgow, NSW. The exact location is a bit of mystery so guests really do get privacy even though the experience totally engages with the beautiful Capertee Valley, which is the second largest canyon in the world.


For the Activities type?

If you’re the type of person that likes a bit more than the wilderness there is still lots to do. Activities on offer include; helicopter tours, wine tours, hiking, abseiling, canoeing, fishing and eco tours. There are also some hammock spots so guests can have some quiet time and check out the amazing views.
