Located in its own private, secluded position, the Araluen Dome is situated within our 75 acre, certified organic, permaculture farm and mountain rainforest landscape.
This "off-grid" dome backs onto subtropical rainforest and national park and overlooks forest and mountains across the valley.
A small solar panel system powers lights, an inverter for 240 plug in for pedestal fan and 2 large eskies to keep food cool with ice. BYO ice.
Wifi internet access is also available.
There is a queen sized bed with linen and towels provided, a futon lounge and small dining table. A small kitchen space with 2 camp gas cookers is self-contained and a compost toilet and outdoor shower with hot water are all adjoining outside with rainforest views from the shower.
A pot belly stove keeps things warm and toasty inside on a cold night. Pure mountain spring water is gravity fed for drinking and showering.
1-2 people is optimum for this small space but it is possible to sleep up to 4 inside if willing and we can provide a tent and mattresses just outside the dome if needed.
Around the farm are a collection of organic gardens, orchards, permaculture systems, sub-tropical rainforest, open mountain plateaus, wild-life and our friendly goats, sheep, chickens and cows. Guest are welcome to explore rainforest trails, observe our permaculture systems and interact with the animals.
We sit beside national parks and nearby within the valley are numerous fresh water creeks, swimming holes and beautiful locations to ride bikes, go hiking, swimming, exploring and our cosmopolitan and diverse town of Mullumbimby is a 10 minutes drive with the river and beaches of Brunswick Heads 20 minutes away and Byron town 25-30 mins.
Access to this dome is via a grassy track through a paddock. This is usually fine for all cars but after heavy rain or ongoing rain it can sometimes restrict 2WD car access. If this is the case, cars can park within about 150 metres and a short walk up to the dome through the paddock.
If interested or for more guests, we do have other accommodation / guest spaces that can serve group bookings.
