You may have camped, but have you ever glamped?
There’s no denying that Australia boasts an expansive range of mesmerising terrain. Now, thanks to Glamping Hub, you can glamp in and around everything from Sydney’s harbour, to a luxury container near Darwin’s national park and even a farm stay in countryside Victoria – all in luxury, of course.
After partnering with Glamping Hub, the universal booking experience site with over 30,000 choices of accommodation across 115 countries, we’re excited to help you find the perfect glamping experience. And to make it that little bit more luxurious, we’ve highlighted five of the most deluxe glamping spots around Australia!
If you love to live large, this may not be the best pick for you. Central to Simpsons Bay and Alonnah in Tasmania, guests (if you look hard enough) will be able to find Bruny Island’s tiny house. Combining luxury styling with a minimalist living approach, the real eye-opener is the 99 acres of conservation forest that surrounds the unit. Found off the grid, the tiny house boasts a sustainable approach mixed with modern living, so expect nothing short of the best. With floor to ceiling windows perfect for embracing the outside wilderness, the Bruny Island tiny house also features an outdoor bathtub and fireplace.
Just under two hours south of Darwin’s CBD, explorers will find Glamping Hub’s luxury container. Located close to Litchfield National Park, this container is the Northern Territory’s very own private delight. Accommodating two guests per stay, the Rakula villa is perfect for those who love to explore, relax and of course, glamp. Inside the two-storey container, guests will be treated to a private kitchen, bathroom and bedroom with floor to ceiling glass windows that show off the extraordinary views. The luxury container also boasts patios on both levels, a private barbeque and air conditioning. On your stay, be sure to take a dip in the nearby Florence Falls.
Getting back to basics with the ultimate twist – Jervis Bay’s luxury tent that overlooks the dazzling white sands and crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay beaches. With three safari tents to choose from: original, deluxe and king deluxe; regardless of your choice, it’s bound to be one of the finest glamping accommodation experiences you will have enjoyed. Apart from the firepit, outdoor shower, wrap around patio and insect screens, hosts have also provided complimentary bikes and canoes to enjoy at your own leisure. Need we mention the surrounds? This Jervis Bay glamping getaway is found on the doorstep of Booderee and Jervis Bay National Park as well as the Jervis Bay Marine Park.
If you’ve ever thought of glamping in Sydney, has floating off the coastline of Palm Beach crossed your mind? That’s right, floating. We present you with Sydney’s very own extraordinary floating villa, perfect for the ultimate romantic getaway. Housing only two guests per stay, the floating home is equipped with hot water, electricity, a fully functional bathroom, kitchen and, who could forget, the private self-drive tender and the onboard wine cellar. Bookings include a tasting plate, champagne on arrival, all meals and possibly the best sunrise and sunset views.
If you’ve ever dreamt of staying on a farm, here is your chance. Just under an hour and a half drive south of Albury, guests will find Porepunkah’s Chinese-inspired barn. Accommodating four guests, this spectacular farm stay was built by Craig Martin using a mix of recycled and new materials. With jaw-dropping views of Mount Buffalo and snow-capped Mount Feathertop, this Victorian glamping oasis features a range of to-die-for amenities including floor to ceiling windows, a fireplace and heated polished floors. Perfect year-round in both winter and summer, Victoria’s countryside farm stay is hosted by local winemaker Jo Marsh, who is always more than happy to supply a tasting or two of the wine produced from the Kilnhouse vineyard.
