Inspired by a stargazing trip to Lake Tekapo, the creator of Bubbletent returned to Australia with an idea to build accommodation ‘without a darned roof in the way.’ The Bubbletent was born, and the completely transparent home offers views in EVERY direction. The owners explain that the exact location of the Bubbletent is secret to protect the privacy and seclusion of guests, but its ‘roughly halfway between Mudgee and Lithgow, overlooking Capertree Valley’, which is home to 1/3 of all Australian bird species! There are three Bubbletents to choose from, all inflated by an eco-turbine powered by batteries and solar power. An unprecedented opportunity to ‘experience a sunset, then the curtain of the cosmos peeling back to unveil the blanket of stars.’
