Vegemite lovers have a chance to stay overnight in a Vegemite villa by Booking.com.
The booking agency has created a four-metre-high and two-metre-wide Vegemite jar, which is available exclusively on the site for guests to book a ‘tasteful’ weekend away.
The villa is situated in the homeland of Vegemite’s parent company Bega Cheese in NSW, and will accommodate two guests at a time for two nights.
The custom-built, self-contained villa looks like a regular Vegemite jar from the outside and contains Vegemite furnishings inside, including a bed which resembles Vegemite on toast, eye masks, slippers, socks and an alarm clock to ensure that guests make their checkout on time.
The stuff of a Vegemite villa
More than 31,000 Vegemite jars would be required to fill the villa or equally more than two million pieces of toast. This laid out would cover more than three kilometres, which is the equivalent of three Sydney Harbour bridges.
Construction of the villa, which weighs about 900kg (20 kangaroos), required three builders, two sculptors, one scenic artist and a printing team not to mention a seamstress to create the custom-made bed quilt and sheets.
“Inspired by Australia’s love for Vegemite, the Vegemite villa is a quirky and quintessential Australian experience like no other. Vegemite is a taste all Australians know and love; now Booking.com is offering world travellers the opportunity to experience Australia’s favourite spread in the most unique manner with the Vegemite villa,” said Booking.com Australia Area Manager Luke Wilson.
Book your stay at the villa
Priced at $89.00 per night, the villa is exclusively available on Booking.com for the nights of December 6 and 7.
