Best spots for glamping this holiday season in Victoria

Camping isn’t for everyone, and that’s why the invention of glamping is possibly the best one for those who love the outdoors but not quite as much as others.

Over the Christmas and New Year period it seems everyone goes out and pitches a tent, digs their own loo and boils a kettle of tea the old school way. So below is a list of places to go glamping where things are a little bit more glamorous…

Gone Glamping – Geelong & Surf Coast

Relatively new to the glamping game, Gone Glamping have just opened up offering unique spots in Geelong, the Surf Coast and the Bellarine. There’s so much beauty in this region, and from the main picture above, it becomes pretty clear Gone Glamping are on to a good thing.

Twilight Camping

Twilight Camping

Spreading their spacious belltents throughout the Surf Coast, from Torquay to Wye River and Barwon Heads, Twilight Camping, is a convenient way to glamp. Created by two lovers of everything outdoors, they really have a passion for the feeling of sleeping under the stars – hence the name.

Cosy Tents2

Cosy Tents – Daylesford & Blackwood

Hidden away in the countryside of Daylesford and Blackwood are two mighty fine glamping options. With a handful of tents at each location, the experience is private, peaceful and it seems like you’re along in the wilderness (though not really). There’s a kitchenette set up outside, as well as a fire pit and boutique toilets – so there’s no slumming it here. Make sure you get a breakfast delivery, it’ll complete your time spent with Cosy Tents.



Happy Glamper – Mornington Peninsula

On the other side of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula boasts a pretty great coast (though, biased or not, it’s not quite as good as the Surf Coast) and there’s an even greater glamping option. With the choice of bell tents or luxurious caravans, Happy Glamper take things up a notch when it comes to fancy camping experience. Waking up from a great nights sleep by the coast sounds fine to us.


Slumber Safari – Werribee

While it mightn’t quite be regional, it’s close enough. And when the Slumber Safari offers the opportunity to wake up with the animals at Werribee Open Range Zoo we’d say that’s a pretty good make up for it being a bit more metro. This is one of the pricier options, but offers a buffet breakfast and a pretty unbeatable experience. You also get two days zoo entry.
