There’s nothing quite like a night stargazing far, far away from the city’s light haze. It’s the best way to take in all the glittery splendour of the Milky Way—a window view of the universe not really afforded to those of us living our best city life.
Well, we’ve got great news for all your pending summer road trip and camping-under-the-stars plans. A brand-new glamping experience has arrived in NSW.
Set on a sprawling 9,000 acre working beef and sheep property in the region of Warialda, Faraway Domes is a literal world away. Created by the property’s owners, the Munsie family, you’ll be able to lap up a little luxury while taking in the serene, rolling hills and crystal-clear skies of Warialda. The township’s name translates to ‘Place of Wild Honey’ in the local First Nations language—so you can imagine it’s pretty picturesque and yes, you should try the local honey or even plan a visit in March for the Warialda Honey Festival.
Faraway Domes is the first geodesic dome of its kind in NSW—and features a super comfy four-poster bed, open plan living and kitchen area and private bathroom. There’s also a four-metre-high elevated deck with a private outdoor bath so you can soak while you stargaze too.
The Munsies will also pre-stock the kitchen with ingredients for breakfast, lunch, dinner or picnic hampers so you can skip the grocery shop too. As well as the breathtaking southern sky, a tonne of magical bushwalks are nearby, and the sunrises and sunset across empty plains have to be seen to be believed. Book a stay here.
