This place was beyond the perfect little hideaway, I would even go as far to say it was our little home away from home. Michael and rebel have done wonders to make this place readily available for everything you could need. The relaxed atmosphere, the chic design of the teepee and the most amazing little tweaks really did make it perfect. Worried about staying in the cold – it’s okay hot water bottles! They really have thought of everything you might need and have gone above and beyond to make it lovely. We had our own private little fire to which Michael was more than happy to help us get going. It was close to the main part of town, but still far enough away to be a quiet piece of outback paradise. Would 100% recommend to anyone eager for a small splice is heaven whilst “glamping” in the outback.


Such a unique place to stay in a completely iconic Aussie location. Loved the 2 night stay in the yurt. Rebel provides lots of extras, like the hot water bottle on the cold nights! Michael built up a lovely fire for us on the first night, enabling us to sit outside and view the sparkling stars and bright Milky Way . Rusty the wild / tame pet boar was an added attraction! Having the permaculture garden to pick extra veggies to add to our salad was great! I’ll definitely make a return visit to stay in the yurt again and join the Dinosaur dig one day!


What a great stay in a charmingly unique accomodation at Rebel and Michael’s little piece of paradise in the Aussie iconic Opal Mining town of Lightning Ridge. My partner and I stayed quite comfortably in the the yurt tent surrounded by beautiful morning sunrises and sunsets along with brilliant star lit night skies warmed by a roaring camp fire. The camp kitchen/living area was well equipped and fun to use. Michael and Rebel were fantastic hosts, communicative and friendly without being intrusive. Loved chatting with them and would stay there again in a heart beat! The location is close enough to town yet isolated from other houses, therefore a peaceful and serene vibe. Rusty the pig was a kick. 🙂 Overall, a fabulous stay! Thanks again from Steve and Linzie

This is a great base to explore Lightening Ridge from, Rebel & Michael are great hosts, generous with their time and stories. The setting is pretty, the tent very comfortable and we loved our nightly outdoor fire and Rusty the pig.

Cute, well styled space. Great local knowledge. Toasty warm, despite being icy cold outside. Water bottles were a nice touch. Close to town, great local knowledge.


Beautiful space to get away from it all. The bed was super comfy and Rebel is just lovely. The resident pig is gorgeous


Amazing stay


Just great! Comfortable bed. Sitting outside with a fire each night after a relaxing soak in the artesian baths, under the moonlight. Just unforgettable and we felt so relaxed staying there. It’s everything Rebel says..& more


Loved it! Thanks Rebel and Michael x


Appears a bit rustic when you first see it, but It does grow on you. Very peaceful. Not at the high end of the glamping scale but then when you see how some of the opal miners live, perhaps it is!
