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, 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.

You sure can pat the animals. There are pet cows, sheep, a mini pig 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 

Wyandotte

Frizzle

Leghorn

Silkie

Araucana 

Can we have a fire?
Fire Season allows us to use the outside fire pit from 1st May through until the end of October, dictated by our local council.
Is the water drinkable?
Due to Bukirks location we don’t have access to Mains Water, therefore we rely on the skies to open up and fill our tanks. There will be times where we have not got any rain water left, therefore i have to purchase mains water from a local company and have it trucked to site, this water is drinkable as its what the township uses. There is water available to purchase in your mini bar fridge, or feel free to bring your own drinking water.
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.
