No one can really tell you what it is like to step inside one of Starry Nights luxury tents – you must feel it for yourself. Placed amongst native eucalypts and rolling hills, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the crystal-clear waters of Petrie Creek tumbling over the rocks.
Each safari tent is positioned so that it cannot be seen by guests in another tent. The tents are big (with over 75 sqm of floor space) and have a raw, earthy feeling and have these stunning features:
- old recycled barn floorboards and an elevated deck
- hand carved stone basins,
- a cozy roaring wood fire,
- pillow top king-sized beds with organic linen,
- a well-stocked kitchenette
- flushing toilets
- a hot steaming rain-head shower and a free-standing bath
- plush gowns
Once the giant window flaps are rolled down you can rest assured that you’ll be toasty.
The fireplace can be rotated to face any direction in the tent, whether you want a soak in your steaming hot bath or snuggle in bed.
Luxury bedding is provided including organic linen sheets and natural woolen blankets and rugs.
In summer you’ll be glad to know that all our tents are insulated. Being off the ground and with such large windows all around, they capture breezes from the surrounding forest.
There are also 4 ceiling fans for any really warm days.
In fact, summertime is the perfect time for a cool off in one of our swimming holes along Petrie Creek.
Made using natural materials
Starry Nights safari tents where designed and made by the owners – Shane and Nicole with the help of some friends, family and Shane’s father. From the cutting of the great steel frame to the crafting of the furniture was all done by Shane.
The hosts and owners have made sure that their tents have been made using natural building materials without harsh chemicals.
The joists are kiln dried hardwood (not H3 treated pine). The floor is finished with a natural hard bees’ wax oil (not polyurethane).
The kitchenette is made from solid wood (no plastics).
The very sheets you sleep in, and doonas and rugs are either organic linen or natural wool fiber. They’ve incorporated all the design elements from a building biologist who has studied the tents and property.
