If your ideal short break involves escaping to the middle of the Australian bush and sleeping under the stars (in luxury, of course), this new hideaway in New South Wales is for you. Set on a 9,000-acre beef and sheep property near Warialda (seven hours' drive north of Sydney and five hours south of Brisbane), Faraway Domes is the stuff of your eco-luxe-getaway dreams.
With sensational bushland views and a focus on leaving a minimal carbon footprint, the retreat is where you can stay in a self-contained geodesic, fully decked-out dome. Perfect for those who love the finer things in life, the private oasis features a four-poster king-size bed, an en-suite, an open-plan living area with television and a full kitchen which – if you like – can be stocked with gourmet snacks and ingredients. Also sure to be a hit with romantics, the dome's surrounding elevated deck looks out over the bush-dotted countyside and boasts an outdoor bathtub, no less. Sundowners and a soak, anyone?
There are also fabulous experiences to be had in the region, with the fabulous Cranky Rock Nature Reserve and Macintyre Falls nearby. Or, spend your stay spotting the local wildlife (keep an eye out for kangaroos, wallabies, rabbits and goats) on an exciting bush walk.
