Bubble Retreats Australia strongly recommends that at the time of booking you purchase comprehensive travel insurance to cover items including but not limited to loss of booking amount through cancellation, loss or damage to personal baggage, loss of money, and medical expenses.

Strictly no smoking is permitted on the property and/or in the bubble.

Please note that while every endeavor is made to ensure guest privacy, the property is a working farm, and roads and paddocks are in use 24/7.
Our bubbles are located on rural and undeveloped areas of land that may not be staffed 24/7. As such you (the guest or traveler) acknowledge that it is your responsibility to maintain your own safety in and around our bubbles and property. You acknowledge that you are aware of the risks entailed in the remote rural environment (including but not limited to spiders, wombat holes, snakes, hot summer temperatures, cold temperatures in winter, windy conditions, unexpected bushfires and smoke, snow and icy conditions, hail, thunder and lightning, high escarpments and any slips and falls) and the low-light environment at night that is preserved for the benefit of stargazing.
The location of your bubble will be sent in a welcome guide upon full receipt of funds and the completion of the online check-in and credit card authorization process within two weeks of your stay. You won’t be able to attend and risk forfeiting your booking if you fail to complete the pre-authorization.
Any damage, loss, or expense incurred by management as a result of your stay will be charged against the pre-authorized credit card used during the online check-in and may exceed the limit of the pre-authorization if the costs incurred exceed the pre-authorization. Examples of this include but are not limited to any breakage, damage, or excess cleaning requirements, or extra guests beyond those declared.
You agree to leave the site and the bubble in the condition it was on arrival, and that you will report any damages which have occurred during your stay.
All bookings are subject to availability.
Our emails are staffed 9-5 pm on business days only.
Due to the high demand for our bubbles, please only book the dates you wish to stay.
We offer a full refund for cancellations up to 30 days before check-in. If booked fewer than 30 days before check-in, full refund for cancellations made within 48 hours of booking and at least 14 days before check-in. After that, 50% refund up to 7 days before check-in. No refund after that.
From time to time it may be necessary for Bubble Retreats Australia to cancel your booking due to events beyond its control. Such events include but are not limited to extreme weather events, bushfires, government directions, government-mandated shutdowns, infectious diseases, pandemics, or viruses. If Bubble Retreats Australia is required to cancel your booking due to an event beyond its control, then Bubble Retreats Australia will provide you with a gift voucher for the same value as the amount you have paid to Bubble Retreats Australia as at the date of cancellation. Gift voucher terms and conditions can be publicly accessed on our website. You acknowledge and agree that to the extent permitted by law, Bubble Retreats Australia will have no obligation to refund any money paid unless it decides to do so at its absolute discretion.
