We’re Going Glamping 

by Amy Collins

If you haven’t heard of glamping (glamorous camping), you’ve probably been without internet for a few years. But that’s ok. We’re here to help. Glamping is camping for people who don’t love roughing it. You usually stay in beautiful, large tents, eat delicious cooked foods, and sleep on large beds. It’s like a hotel but outdoors. Here are some of our picks for sleeping under the stars, fancy style.

Cosy Tents

The name has us excited already. Nothing like a cosy getaway. Cosy Tents, in Dalyesford offers big beautiful bell tents in the hills. These stunning tents are filled with everything you’ll need for your stay. Inside your tent you’ll find big beds, luxury linen, bath towels, all the cooking utensils you’ll need, lights, tables and chairs, heating and cooling, an Esky, a blue tooth speaker, plus ports for charging phones and other small devices. Plus onsite you’ll find a reception, toilets and showers, a fire pit, plus a full range of BBQ facilities making for an easy escape.

St Jerome’s The Hotel

This one is borderline glamping. Found on the rooftop of Melbourne Central, St Jerome’s brings the hotel life and the outdoors together in their beautiful bell tents. Either the 4m or the 5m tents will be enough to satisfy those luxury cravings with both being stocked with beds, premium linen, cooling and heating, plus an Esky that’s filled with local craft beers and cider.

When you stay with Jerome you’ll also get breakfast, sweet treats on arrival, cocktails at happy hour, complementary bowling, sauna sessions, Gelato Messina, T2 delivery, and guided meditation classes.

And if the idea of being outdoors is too much for you, you’re in the heart of the city, so the world is our oyster.

Phillip Island Glamping 

Phillip Island Glamping offers glamourous camping options for a range of sites in the surrounding areas including Cows, San Remo Foreshore, and Newhaven. They will set up your beautiful bell tent for you, stock it with beds, linen, heaters, lamps, radios, kettles, toasters, and crockery, coffee, tea, outdoor table and chairs, plus a small Esky. They also pack it all down for you so you don’t need to worry about doing any hard work on your stay.

Happy Glamper

These guys have a range of options for the glamping enthusiast along the Mornington Peninsular. You can stay in a bell tent, or for something that feels more like being indoors, you can stay in their Airstreams, or Vintage Caravans. You’ll be set up in any of the options with bedding, coffee and tea facilities, outdoor mats and chairs, and even board games to keep big and small kids entertained.
