A personal project of Jaime and Belinda’s along with their children who are fourth-generation beef producers, Faraway Domes is a private geodesic dome structure offering guests first class comfort in a truly unique and exclusive environment.

The Munsies have experienced the driest conditions in 100 years and knew they had to diversify their 9,000 acre mixed farming business to safeguard the future of their family operation for generations to come.

“The dry conditions have taken a toll on the district, but this project has brought our family together at one of the toughest times in our history on the property. It’s also provided a good distraction from the dry conditions and given our family hope for the future,” said Belinda, co-owner of Faraway Domes.

Luxury Tourism Initiative

Developed to attract more visitors to the region and boost local tourism, Faraway Domes sits on a four-meter high elevated deck with large bay windows offering unparalleled views of the valley.

Featuring a king size four poster bed, private bathroom and an open plan living and kitchen area, the result is unlike anything the region has seen before.

“We hope the project will help to boost the spirits of our district, which has struggled during the drought. We want to show visitors from all over Australia that regional and rural areas still have so much to offer and we do have the ability to bounce back during tough times,” said Belinda.

“We’re really excited to reveal Faraway Domes to the public and hope to lure guests from all over Australia and around the globe to experience staying in our geodesic dome that feature in world class resorts. Our district has so much to offer and we are confident a visit to Faraway Domes will leave an indelible mark on anyone who stays.”
