Time & Location
09 Apr 2022, 3:00 pm AEST – 10 Apr 2022, 9:30 am AEST
Manar, 7778 Kings Highway, Manar NSW 2622, Australia
About the Event
The sanctuary is off-grid, powered by solar electricity and all water is rainwater collected in tanks. Located in 273 acres of mixed grazing and stunning bushland, this represents an amazing opportunity to reconnect with nature.
Join co-founders Kate & James on a tour of the sanctuary, where they will share the stories of the rescued residents and you can interact with the more outgoing animals.
You can then just settle down and watch the sunset with a chilled afternoon, go for a stroll down the lane-way, before enjoying a BBQ dinner (vegan, supplied).
Far from the city lights, you can spend the evening stargazing and talking around our small fire pit.
Whenever you'd like to, you can retire to your accommodation for the night - in a beautifully furnished glamping bell tent, fitted with quality queen or king-single sized air beds, bedding, pillows, quilts, cushions, rugs, (solar-powered) blankets, and lit by gorgeous rechargeable LED lighting.
After a restful evening, you can choose to watch dawn break or of course, stay in bed that little bit longer!
A buffet breakfast of cereals, granola, toast, juice and coffee (plant-based milk only) will be provided.
Guests who would like to help us feed the 250+ animals breakfast are also welcome to come along for the feed run and spend a little more time with the animals before heading home.
For safety reasons, this event is only open to fully vaccinated individuals aged 18+ years as of the date of booking.
