Glamping in NSW
From glamorous glampsites to intimate getaways under the stars, outdoor adventures have never looked more appealing. Glamping with all the comforts of a hotel – think queen-sized beds, freestanding bath tubs and plush rugs – has transformed the experience of camping into a luxurious escape.
Forget about pitching a tent: glamping offers luxury with minimal effort. There are a number of glamping options to choose from in NSW – from tented camps with blow-up mattresses to high-end options with all the comforts of a boutique hotel. This is your guide to glamping in NSW.
Most safari tents and tipis come equipped with queen-size beds, stylish ensuites and other amenities to make glamping all that more comfortable. Some retreats, such as Paperbark Camp near the crystal-blue waters of Jervis Bay on the South Coast, even have their own on-site restaurant.
Campside cooking has never looked so good, and sites like Tanja Lagoon Camp in Mimosa Rocks National Park also include well-equipped kitchens. Guests at the glampsite, which is surrounded by wilderness between Tathra and Bermagui, can enjoy a breakfast of local produce and request a campfire oven, too.
Glamping in wine country is another luxe option: choose between Sierra Escape, where kangaroos roam freely amid the rolling hills around Mudgee, or Nashdale Lane Glamping in a vineyard near Orange. There is plenty of fun to be had in the pretty countryside, and you'll be right in position for wine tasting at nearby cellar doors.
Glamping also provides an opportunity to connect with your kids. There are glamping sites in family holiday parks, such as Seven Mile Beach Holiday Park in Gerroa and the Big4 Nelligen Holiday Park by the Clyde River, near Batemans Bay. You’ll also find sites on the Central Coast, North Coast and in Country NSW.
There are a number of beachside glampsites along the Far North Coast near Byron Bay including Suffolk Beachfront Holiday Park, where you can choose between safari tents, ensuite caravans or luxury cabins. Ramble further north, to seaside Kingscliff, where you can book a deluxe tent for a beach holiday.
