Bukirk Glamping FAQ
I’m sure you have many questions, so we’ve compiled some of the most common ones to make it easy for you.
Pets - are they allowed?
Bukirk is situated on a working farm. We have a menagerie of animals (sheep dogs, sheep, cows, goats, chooks and a mini pig) and due to the decor in the Tents as much as I love pets I don’t allow them to stay.
Do you cater for Children?
Bukirk is an Adults Only retreat. Our Glamping facilities are not structured for children and Bukirk has been designed as a unique romantic getaway for couples and for groups looking for somewhere to stay together with their own privacy.

What’s there to do in and around Clare Valley?
There’s so much to see and do in and around the Clare Valley, not only is there wine tasting to be done there is also a couple of craft breweries, plenty of amazing restaurants, cafes and wineries to dine at, cheese platters to be had and lots of historic sites and fun things such as the Mintaro Maze, Bungaree Station, Breakout Rooms, Lake Bumbunga and explore historic Burra just to name a few.
My favourite way to explore the wineries is to hire electric bikes and cycle the famous https://rieslingtrail.com.au/
If cycling isnt your thing then take the worry out of where to go and how to get there by doing a wine tour, check out what Mr Willson has to offer at https://www.clarevalleytours.com/about-mr-willson or what Charles can do for you at https://www.valleywinetours.com.au/ or Tim and the guys at https://clarevalleywinetours.com.au

Are there nice restaurants in Clare?
There are so many nice places to eat in and around the Clare Valley:

Tents are fitted with a heater and electric blankets with a heat bar in the en-suite and there’s a pedastal fan in the Tent and a wall fan in the en-suite.
Portable airconditioners are available for hire for the Tents.
Fancy Coops are fitted with a split system.

You sure can pat the animals. There are pet cows, sheep, a mini pig, goats and of course Chooks.
Can I feed the pets?
Please check with Chook first as there are things some of them cant eat.. especially Kevin he needs to watch his weight. 😂
What’s the best tent?
They are all beautiful and luxurious, with the same offerings, the main difference other than decor is the Silkie and Araucana have King Beds and the other Tents have Queen Beds. All the Tents offer the same facilities, they are just decorated differently so it comes down to personal choice.
Which tent faces sunrise?
Wyandotte and Frizzle allow you to see the sunrise from the comfort of your bed if you wish, in saying that if you’re in a different Tent all you need to do is pop your head out to see the Sunrise.
Which tent faces sunset?
Access to the Sunset is not a problem at Bukirk as the property has unobstructed views, but if you would like the ultimate Tent for viewing the Sunset directly in front of your Tent then Araucana and Silkie are the best followed by Leghorn. Frizzle faces north west so you can see it to your left and Wyandotte faces east, but if you sat on the back of your deck then you would be facing the sunset too! Its not hard to find the right position as you have many options for an awesome view anywhere on the property.
Which tents are next to each other?
As you drive in the road leads you to the right
Order from the first tent to the last is
Can we have a fire?
Fire Season allows us to use the personalised fabulous fire pit from 1st May through until the end of October, dictated by our local council. THere is also a fireplace inside the Glamp Kitchen if weather should not be nice to sit outside.
Each Tent doesn’t have their own fireplace for many reasons, main one being i don’t want the tent to burn down, as they are flammable!
Is the water drinkable?
Is there a fridge?
Yes the Tents have a mini bar fridge, perfect size to keep your cheese platter goodies and refreshments cold and there is a large fridge in the outdoor kitchen with a freezer compartment too. The Fancy Coops have a household size fridge which has a freezer compartment as well.
