Starry Nights Luxury Camping

Sustainability and
carbon neutral objectives

Starry Nights is able to go off grid and produces its own:

  • Water
  • Electricity from solar cells (which also feeds back to the grid)
  • On site wastewater treatment and
  • much of their own food comes from their food gardens

The owners of Starry Nights have at their own expense established a Vegetation Protection Covenant with the Queensland Land Registry over 1/3 of their property. A vegetation covenant is a perpetual legally binding document that does not allow the current owners or any future owners to clear or develop that land. They have done this to establish a fauna corridor to connect Petrie Creek to the Triuna National Park.

Starry Nights Luxury Camping is a genuine sustainable eco-accommodation property, minimizing daily-emissions and close to a zero-carbon footprint. Their sustainable approach also includes the following initiatives:

  • Over 4000 plants have been planted on the property over the last 2 years
  • They’ve incorporated all the design elements from a building biologist who has studied the tents and property.
  • Natural ventilation is used and ceiling fans
  • Toilets are dual flush.
  • Hot water heated on demand only, by gas
  • Low energy use LED bulbs
  • Revegetation of areas affected by the development.
  • No fencing (except around the chooks) to maintain the wildlife corridor.
  • Driven piles and shallow foundations only – all buildings are built off the ground
  • Continuous removal of exotic species
  • Recycling programs and using recycled paper and natural products where possible.
  • No town water and no chlorine or fluoride
  • Biodegradable cleaning agents are used.
  • No intentional feeding of wildlife.
  • Minimized emissions through use of renewable electricity (solar electricity is produced on-site)
  • Practicing reuse, recycle, reduce and recover programs
  • Decreasing transport emissions through bulk buying
  • Decreasing water use, low-flow fittings, low-water toilets
  • Decreasing noise and environmental pollution, restricting cars to entry car park
  • Low to no chemical pollution, use of biodegradable toiletries and organic cleaning agents;
  • Composting organic waste in established worm farm
  • Using only native plants for re-vegetation work, with local species preferred
  • Establishing local native plants in all revegetation
  • Member of Land for Wildlife
  • Environmental practices including on-site waste-water treatment
  • Conservation also extends to the progressive restoration and rehabilitation of the rainforest that extends over much of the property
