Have you ever dreamed of spending the night in a giant transparent bubble, with the twinkling stars in full view above you? Well, now you can, thanks to Bubbletent's inflatable glamping tents.

Sitting in remote pockets of a working farm between Mudgee and Lithgow, about 200 kilometres northwest of Sydney, Bubbletent has three totally secluded getaways — all named after star signs and all with 360-degree views of the countryside.

Overlooking the Capertee Valley, these hi-tech bubble tents have a zero carbon footprint. But while they're off-grid, they certainly don't skimp on comfort, boasting plush queen-sized beds, cooking facilities and a separate bathroom area complete with compost toilet and a sink with pump water. There's even a telescope for late-night stargazing sessions from the comfort of your bed. As an added bonus for those chillier months, the tents have outdoor woodfired baths, too, which come with their own stunning views.

While all three tents are located in the Valley, they're all hidden from each other — so the only other guests you're likely to spot are wombats, kookaburras and 237 different bird species.

With the NSW Government announcing that all intrastate travel (so no crossing borders just yet) is allowed from June 1, it's time to start planning your June long weekend getaway. Bubbletent bookings for June–September open at 1pm on Sunday, May 24, and we suggest you move fast — these bubbles are known to book out fast in normal times, let alone now.

If you manage to snag a stay, here are some of our favourite things to do in Lithgow and surrounds.

Bubble Tent Australia bookings for June–September open at 1pm on Sunday, May 24. Getaways start at $510 a night for two.
