Listed on Airbnb in Brisbane, Queensland, one lucky family will have the opportunity to live like the Heelers for the ultimate Bluey fan weekend.

Bluey is a global phenomenon that follows the adventures of Bluey - a loveable, inexhaustible six-year-old Blue Heeler dog - who lives with her Mum (Chilli), Dad (Bandit) and little sister Bingo. The show screens in over 60 countries and is beloved by both parents and kids for its heart, humour and relatable family moments.

BBC Studio has teamed up with Airbnb to recreate the iconic Bluey Heeler family home and it is available for one family to book for a unique Bluey-themed getaway.

'Real Life' Heeler Family Home

Nestled on a quiet, tree-lined street in one of Brisbane‚Äôs most picturesque neighbourhoods ‚Äď the city which has inspired the show‚Äôs colourful backdrop - the house has been entirely customised to bring the cartoon experience to life, featuring quirky details¬†Bluey¬†fans will recognise from the Heeler family home in the show.

Familiar touches like the red letterbox, bone-shaped chimney, and charming bay window, are sure to transport guests to Bluey's imaginative world. 

Inside, the interior has been re-imagined with a breezy Mid-Century aesthetic coupled with playful pops of colour.

The girls’ playroom with its signature rainbow canopy, kiwi rug and numerous toys - including Bluey’s beloved Chattermax toy and magic xylophone - sets the stage for creative play and make believe.

Kids can stay overnight in Bluey and Bingo’s Bedroom, equipped with two single beds, colourful hanging lanterns, and a hand-crafted watermelon rug.
