ACTIVITIES

At Starry Nights you can do as much or as little as you like.

For many guests, a stay at Starry Nights Luxury Camp is a well-earned chance to sleep in, on the plush pillow top king sized beds, enjoy a long lazy breakfast on the verandah with the paper, perhaps a couple of hours on the beach with a good book before heading back for an afternoon snooze and contemplating a dinner cooked for you from the wood fired oven sitting under the stars. Or walk down to the tumbling rapids of Petrie Creek and in the warmer months take a dip in the swimming hole or walk further down to the rapids. Take a walk along the track of our own little part of the Hinterland’s rainforest. For those who enjoy company, like-minded guests often gather around the guest lounge fireplace, for a drink, a chat and always lots of laughter.

For others, it is a base from which to get busy exploring the spectacular Sunshine Coast with its pristine beaches or hinterland with the award-winning national parks, and mountain villages like Montville, Mapelton and Maleny, a true playground for the outdoor enthusiast. A few minutes away there are lots of things to experience, being just over:

10 minutes from the mountain village of Montville,
12 minutes to Kondalilla Falls and Kondalilla National Park
20 minutes to Alex and Mooloolaba beaches,
25 minutes to Eumundi markets
27 Minutes to Maleny

Starry Night’s guest lounge is our communal guest hub with a small library, pool table, sauna and open fire. There’s a coffee machine in the lounge, as well as a choice of games and beverages.

ENVIRONMENT

From the Owners:

“Starry Nights Luxury Camping is a genuine sustainable eco-accommodation property which touches the earth lightly, minimizing daily-emissions to achieve close to a zero-carbon footprint. Their sustainable approach also includes the following initiatives:

Starry Nights is off grid and produces its own electricity from solar cells (which also feeds back to the grid)
Low energy use LED bulbs
Rainwater used (no town water and no chlorine)
On site wastewater treatment and much of their own food comes from their food gardens

The owners of Starry Nights have at their own expense established a Vegetation Protection Covenant with the Queensland Land Registry over one third of their property. A vegetation covenant is a perpetual legally binding document that does not allow the current owners or any future owners to clear or develop that land. They have done this to establish a fauna corridor to connect Petrie Creek to the Triuna National Park.
No intentional feeding of wildlife.

Over 4000 plants have been planted on the property over the last 2 years
Revegetation of areas affected by the development.
No fencing (except around the chooks) to maintain the wildlife corridor.
Driven piles and shallow foundations only – all buildings are built off the ground
Continuous removal of exotic species – inc. blackberry and asparagus fern
Using only native plants for re-vegetation work, with local provenance preferred
Minimizing soil erosion through careful management and rehabilitation
Conservation also extends to the progressive restoration and rehabilitation of the rainforest that extends over much of the property

Use of recycled paper and natural products where possible.
Biodegradable cleaning agents are used.
Minimal chemical pollution with chemical-free camp site, education, provision of biodegradable toiletries and cleaning agents; organic/biodynamic food gardens, emphasis on manual weed control
Composter manages 100% of the resort’s organic waste
Starry Nights is proud to be part of the Eco Lodges of Australia group.

Sounding Good?  Read on…

Tucked beside a rainforest on Petrie Creek, Starry Nights Luxury Camp is just 70 minutes north of Brisbane airport. Even though it is off the beaten track there are sealed roads all the way. Being just over 10 minutes from the main street of Montville and 20 minutes to Mooloolaba beach, it is the perfect location.

Each safari tent is positioned so that it cannot be seen by guests in another tent. The tents are big (with over 75 sqm of floor space) and have a raw, earthy feeling and have many stunning features. (Please see features box). Placed amongst native eucalypts and rolling hills, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the crystal-clear waters of Petrie Creek tumbling over the rocks.

In Winter, the fireplace can be rotated to face any direction in the tent, whether you want a soak in your steaming hot bath or snuggle in bed.

In Summer you’ll be glad to know that the tents are insulated. Being off the ground and with such large windows all around, they capture breezes from the surrounding forest.

There are also 4 ceiling fans for any really warm days. In fact, summertime is the perfect time for a cool off in one of our swimming holes along Petrie Creek.

Luxury bedding is provided including organic linen sheets and natural woolen blankets and rugs.

The owners have established a perpetual vegetation covenant over their property to make sure that the forest is never developed or cleared which provides the only link for fauna from the nearby Triunia National Park to Petrie Creek. Petrie Creek is a permanent spring fed creek with stony banks and riverbed. Koalas, numerous birds, kangaroos, Tawny Frog-Mouth owls, the occasional bush turkey and their resident chickens (providing a constant supply of eggs), have all made a home at Starry Nights.

Hosts: Shane and Nicole

Address: Carruthers Road, West Woombye QLD
