What food do I need to bring?
You have three options for your stay at Mirumiru Bubbletent. You can bring what you need to make your own meals by campfire or gas camp stove. Or you can order a grocery package in advance and simply turn up – grocery packages can be sent to you after booking. Or if you feel like eating out we can help recommend cafes and restaurants to cater for the everyday or the special occasion (bookings are essential). But in all instances please bring all of your drinking water as we are off-grid.
Is our tent private?
Each tent has been positioned in our farm to give our guests maximum privacy. Not only that we have a privacy screen for each outdoor bath area. We ask our guests to remain in their allocated campsite area to ensure we meet privacy goals and keep everyone safe.
Does each tent have a bathroom?
Mirumiru Bubbletent provides off-grid bathroom facilities, including a waterless (composting) toilet and gas fired hot water for the outdoor bath and shower.
Is it cold in the tent?
For those people that love crisp winters, campfires and toasting marshmallows, we have good news – winters in Tenterfield are cold. We have equipped each tent with luxurious silk quilts (including a winter weight option to add for subzero evenings) a heater and electric blanket to keep you warm. And we have our outdoor campfire to keep you warm when you are outside (note this is closed during bush fire season). Evenings are cooler and the weather can change. We recommend you bring an outdoor waterproof jacket, scarf, beanie plus warm footwear as a just in case option.
For families using the Tiny Bubble Tent we provide thermal-rated sleeping bags.
Can you stay in the tent during the day?
You can stay in the tent during the day, however visibility is limited due to the heat shield we use to protect each tent. During Summer we don’t recommend staying inside on very hot days. You can relax in the shade outdoors or head to either to our big new dam or a local watering hole for a swim.
What happens if it rains?
During the day you can relax in the tent or head into Tenterfield or further afield for a selection of indoor activities. We provide under cover cooking gas stove facilities so that you still can make a meal should you want to camp out.
What clothes do we bring?
For the cooler months we recommend you bring an outdoor waterproof jacket, warm jacket or fleece, scarf, beanie, gloves plus warm waterproof footwear – if you feel the cold, thermal clothes may be an option for night time. Winter time temps can drop below zero, so a warm jumper is a must as well. During the warmer months make sure you bring a hat and sturdy enclosed shoes for walking.
Do I need a 4WD?
No, you can reach each tent by standard 2WD car. You cannot however drive anywhere else on the farm due to the large and unseen granite boulders. You can also reach scenic drives and national parks by standard car. Some of these roads are unsealed.
Where exactly are you located?
We are located just a short drive from Tenterfield Village. We will provide full details in how to get here in our digital welcome book once you confirm your stay.
Are children welcome?
Mirumiru Bubbletent is Australia’s first family friendly Bubbletent offering. However as this is a farm with dams and a Billabong and so we don’t accept children under 7 years of age. We do expect our young guests to follow farm rules for their own health and safety.
Are pets welcome?
No – we don’t accept pets to protect our native wildlife.
Do you have WIFI?
Yes – each Bubbletent has its own WIFI and we have decent mobile coverage at the farm.
What time is check in and check out?
Check in is 3PM and check out is 10am.
What if there is a bush fire?
We have an Emergency Evacuation Process and Plan fully approved by the Rural Fire Service. Tenterfield has allocated bush fire emergency meeting points and details of what to do in a bush fire are outlined in our digital welcome book. And don’t forget we have full mobile coverage to keep you across weather changes.
