Harvest Inn is an overnight program with stays lasting a maximum of 24 hours. At your Host’s invitation, they may offer to extend their hospitality beyond one night, but we discourage multiple night stays to avoid “wearing out our welcome”. Under no circumstances should a member make a request to stay additional nights. Any invitation can only come from the Host.

Our Hosts are not caravan parks, and they do not offer the services of these parks, like toilets, power and dumping stations. Further council regulations applying to caravans and RV stays vary enormously across the 75 Local Government areas where our hosts reside. To remain within these regulations across the country, we have limited stays to one night.

Harvest Inn does not seek to replace traditional camping areas. We want to expand the opportunities for caravan and RV travellers by being able to include some unique overnight stays within the traveller’s itinerary.

We ask that you contact your Host through the Harvest Inn platform to help them manage their bookings and gain access to your member details when coordinating your stay.

Yes, all Harvest Inn Hosts are required to have a standard 20 million dollar public liability insurance policy. However, our TOS also requires guests to submit their comprehensive vehicle insurance and registration details to protect both your assets and those of your host.

This varies amongst Hosts and is identified in each listing under the amenities. If a Host allows pets please ensure that it is leashed at all times and is not allowed to run free. Please remember to clean up after your furry little friend.

Our platform has a pet filter so you can search only for hosts that accept pets.

Your Host may have working animals and full respect needs to be provided in these environments. 

Each vehicle must be a Harvest Inn member and have their own approved overnight stay with a Host.

This varies amongst Hosts, please check with your host if there are any restrictions including hours of use and any other requirements.
