Need some time outdoors minus the dirt, insects and sleeping bags? Enter glamping - the perfect way to get all of the good nature vibes without the hassle of setting up a tent or rubbing two sticks together to get a fire going. Let's be honest, I'm no Bear Grylls.
Ditch the insect repellent and schedule one of your next weekend getaways at one of these seriously luxe spots.
The Enchanted Cave - Bilpin, Blue Mountains, NSW
This one is not your typical camping experience but who can say no to spending a night inside this cave overlooking the Blue Mountains? And don't worry there are no caveman skills required.
Flash Camp - Australia
Everyone loves a good pop up, so why not do glamping pop up style? Flash Camp brings their gorgeous tents to music festivals and other events. Check them out to see when they will be coming to you next.
psst- editor Sally just recently stayed with Flash Camp in Byron Bay, check out all of the epic deets below
Bubble Tent Australia
One of the best things about camping is being able to sleep under the stars. However, unless you have the best luck with the weather, rain can be a serious issue. Enter Bubble Tent - where you legit get to sleep in a (dry!) bubble and watch the sunset and sunrise.
Unyoked - NSW, Australia
Everyone loves connecting to their inner Bear Grylls but eating spiders isn't for everyone. Unyoked have various locations around Australia and have the cutest mini cabins for getaways so you can re-charge in nature. That's right - it's camping sans tent.
Cozy Tents - Daylesford, VIC
If you want to talk serious luxury camping, look no further than Cozy Tents in Daylesford. With 1200tc linen, Bluetooth speaker systems and access to hot showers (a must), it’s the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors without having to rough it.
Nightfall Camp - Lamington Park, QLD
The beautiful Nightfall Camp in Lamington Park combines luxury with health and sustainability. With unpretentious organic food that is prepared by your hosts on the private tent BBQ with a backdrop of the gorgeous wilderness known as the Lost World, I am packing my bags already.
Sal Salis Beachside Camp- Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef, WA
Located in Western Australia where the outback meets the reef, Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is a beachside camp nestled in the dunes of the Cape Range National Park. With tents that look directly out onto the reef, you can fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean lapping against the shore (*sigh*)
Paperbark Camp - Jervis Bay, NSW
With 12 safari-style tents that have been placed amongst the eucalypts and paperbarks in Jervis Bay, Paperbark Camp is a true combination of safari meets luxe-hotel experience. Alongside all of the luxuries you would expect from a hotel they also have open-air private ensuites, handmade soaps and lotions made from natural ingredients and the lighting is all solar powered.
9. Notel - Melbourne
As the name says, this ain't a hotel. In my opinion its probably better than a hotel! Imagine staying in a refurbished airstream trailer over looking the famous Flinders Lane. Notel is serious designer urban accomodation (no insects and fireplaces here). I say sign me up.
