Australia, otherwise known as the Land Down Under, is a country famous for its beaches and wonderful natural sights. This makes it perfect for campers and adventures. However, for travellers who think that sleeping bags on the ground aren’t fun, try glamping. Glamping allows you to experience nature and its beauty while sleeping in a comfortable bed and not having to wash the dirt off your hair in the morning. Imagine spending your day hiking and trekking through the dense green foliage, enjoying a cuppa while being treated to a massage, or soaking in a swimming pool while watching the sunset. That’s what glamping offers, and it is one of the best ways to see and experience Australia’s picturesque sights. Here are the best glamping spots in Australia.

Plus, guests have their own en suite bathrooms and kitchenettes, as well as a communal outdoor barbeque that is great for mingling with other guests.

Glamping in Australia
The great Australian outdoors are best explored while staying out in the open. And if camping isn’t suitable, then glamping with a real bed is the way to go. Not only is it luxurious and almost like living in a hotel with all the proper comforts, but it also gives you an opportunity to stay right in the lap of nature.
