Airbnb’s giving you the opportunity to live like Bluey for a weekend

For some people it’s a dream come true, for others it’s a horrific spout of sleep paralysis. That’s right, it’s the opportunity to stay at your kid’s favourite cartoon characters house!

The iconic Heeler family home from hit Aussie kids’ show, Bluey, is being listed on Airbnb in Brisbane, offering one lucky family the opportunity to live like the Heelers for the weekend.

Airbnb has partnered with BBC Studios, co-commissioner and global distributor of Bluey, on this one-of-a-kind experience.

The house is nestled on a quiet, tree-lined street in Brisbane and has been entirely customised to bring the cartoon experience to life.

From the moment guests step onto the front lawn, they’ll be transported to Bluey’s world as they spot familiar touches like the red letterbox, bone-shaped chimney, and charming bay window.

“Like many parents with young children, I’ve been captivated by the adventures of Bluey and her family, which bring so much joy and quintessential Aussie humour to audiences across the globe,” Airbnb country manager ANZ, Susan Wheeldon said.

The weekend getaway includes:

  • An exclusive behind the scenes tour of the Ludo Studio, where Bluey is created.
  • A Chinese takeaway feast in the lush backyard.
  • An afternoon decorating the Heeler’s famous duck cake.
  • A puppet making craft session featuring Bluey’s famous Bob Bilby character.

“The Heeler house is almost a character in its own right. We’ve been amazed at the outpouring of love the fans have shown for this iconic setting, and for all the beautiful Queensland locations the crew have so lovingly included across the three series,” Bluey senior marketing manager BBC Studios ANZ, Madeleine Jelfs said.

“Bringing Bluey’s backdrop to life in such an ingenious and colourful way for our fans has been an absolute delight.”
