VEGEMITE lovers have a chance like never before to spread their devotion to Australia’s iconic spread, by staying overnight in a VEGEMITE (Jar) Villa built by Booking.com.
As the digital travel leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of unique places to stay and with a mission to make it easier for everyone to experience the world, from the every day to the unexpected, Booking.com has created a four-metre-high and two-metre-wide VEGEMITE Jar which is available exclusively on the site for guests to book for a tasteful weekend away!
The VEGEMITE Villa will be situated in the homeland of VEGEMITE’s parent company, Bega Cheese, Brogo, NSW and will accommodate two guests at a time, for two nights. Lucky travellers will have the chance to vege out in the peaceful New South Wales countryside and live the Australian dream with this unique experience.
The custom-built, self-contained Villa looks like a regular VEGEMITE jar from the outside and gets even better when you step inside! Complete with VEGEMITE furnishings, including a bed which resembles VEGEMITE on toast, eye masks, slippers, socks and an alarm clock – of course, to ensure that guests make their check out on time. The Villa is also fully equipped with power points and USB ports, to keep guests connected as they enjoy all that country New South Wales has to offer.
If you’re wondering what goes into building a Vegemite Villa, here it is:
- If we were to fill the entire Villa with Vegemite Jars, you would need more than 31,000 jars or equally more than two million pieces of toast
- If we then laid all of these out, it would be over 3km long. That’s the equivalent of three Sydney Harbour Bridges!
- It took three builders, two sculptors, one scenic artist and a printing team to build this incredible stay
- It weighs approximately 900kg, that’s approximately 20 Kangaroos!
- A seamstress has created a custom-made bed quilt and sheets which looks like Vegemite on toast
