The kitchen is well equipped with all your crockery cutlery and cooking equipment you will need, large gas fridge, woodfire stoves that will cook the best roasts, for that quick cuppa in the morning gas cooktops and for that nice steak outdoor gas BBQs. There is instant gas hot water in the shower and indoor toilet. Gas lighting in each room also adds to the rustic atmosphere. Your indoor fire wood is supplied at the cabins.
Offering a glamping experience, at Wombat Valley you’re able to experience the perks of a digital detox without going “camping”. You’re able to have the homely features such as a warm cosy bed to hop into at night, indoor heating by the fire and the “essentials” of a hot shower, lighting and indoor toilet!
Glamping is the outdoor experience without having to give up some of the home “essentials” you would if you packed your swag or tent to go camping in the high country.
BONUS we even allow you four legged family members to join you on this experience! Bring your pets!
* Charging of electrical devices available at the office if required (remember to bring your own charging cables)
