Seven Australian glamping getaways
It’s not surprising that more and more glamping hotspots are popping up and gracing the countryside with their awesome presence. With options to suit all budgets, glamping getaways offer a unique way to experience a place and connect with nature – no air-mattress required.

Glamping is another thing we’re adding to the ‘If you don’t like this, we probably can’t be friends’ list (alongside animals, very very soft cheeses and wine. These things make up a disproportionately large part of our lives, you see).

It’s the perfect option for those who want unique accommodation with luxe touches and bragging rights. Which is why love the idea of glamping for a honeymoon.

We’ve pulled together some of Australia’s best glamping holidays for your inspo.


Sal Salis // Ningaloo Reef, WA

Sal Salis is a remote, beachside safari camp nestled in the dunes of WA’s Cape Range National Park. The nine luxury wilderness tents are right on the shores of Ningaloo Reef – an underwater paradise and one of the only places in Australia that you can go swimming with whale sharks.

From $900 per person, per night (all meals, drinks and activities included).

Ikara Safari Camp // Flinders Ranges, SA

Why more people don’t know about Wilpena Pound is a mystery to us. It’s an extraordinary natural amphitheatre eight times the size of Uluru and 300 metres higher. Worth a look we’d say, and while you’re there stay at the Ikara Safari Camp in one of their 15 glamping tents. Each tent has a king size bed, ensuite bathroom, power and air-conditioning.

From $320 per tent, per night.

Nightfall Wilderness Camp // Lamington National Park, QLD

On the edge of Queensland’s ancient Lamington National Park rainforest sits this glamping camp. The architect-inspired safari tents have been hand-built with reclaimed materials, giving a stylishly raw feel about them (but not forgetting luxuries like organic toiletries and rain showers). Only six guests at a time can stay at this retreat too, making it lovely and private.

From $795 per tent, per night.  Includes all meals and drinks.



Longitude 131° // Yulara, NT

Waking up to your own private view of the sun rising over Uluru has to be the highlight here. But the 15 luxe tents set upon the desert dunes of central Australia are epic in their own right. Crisp linen, king-sized beds, historic artworks and five-star amenities are just the cherry on top.

$1,600 per tent, per night (one tent sleeps two people, min. two night stay. Includes all dining, drinks and signature experiences).

Longitude 131


Spicers Canopy // Scenic Rim Region, QLD

Located in the heart of QLD’s beautiful scenic rim region, Spicers Canopy is a tented eco-retreat for those looking to escape the hustle. The safari-style tents are surrounded by 5,000 acres of private nature refuge and are the perfect refuge to retire to after walking the Scenic Rim Trail, with king-sized beds, fine linen, polished floorboards, armchairs and a deck for sunset-viewing.

Tanja Lagoon Camp // Tanja, NSW

Tanja Lagoon Camp is a small pocket of privately owned land on the edge of a coastal lagoon surrounded by national park on the NSW south coast. Each of the safari tents has a deck with gorgeous lagoon views, as well as an ensuite and kitchen so you’re fully self-contained. Stay in or go surfing, whale watching, winery-ing, kayaking, bushwalking – there’s heaps to do.

From $215 per tent, per night.

Bamurru Plains // Kakadu National Park, NT

Their tagline is ‘Wild Bush Luxury’ and we’re not going to argue it. Nine safari bungalows sit on stilts overlooking the Kakadu floodplains and the myriad of wildlife that’s attracted to this lush part of the world. Features include organic cotton linen, a pillow menu, ensuite bathroom, binoculars and animal guides, Aboriginal artworks and absolutely zero internet or mobile coverage. Bliss.

From $590 per adult, per night. Meals and drinks included.

Bamarru Plains


Paperbark Camp // Jervis Bay, NSW

We’re big fans of what these guys do. And that would be offering luxurious glamping experiences in a peaceful bush setting minutes away from pristine beaches. Lots of fond words there but we feel like we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk up this place – not just because we’ve experienced it ourselves (and hugely recommend doing the same) but because they also host weddings. Get married and hang around for a minimoon? Sure, especially with their delicious Gunyah treetop restaurant keeping you fed.

From $525 per tent, per night. Dinner and breakfast included.
