C&G’s Guide to Glamping

C&G’s Guide to Glamping

The weather’s warming up, days are getting longer and holiday season draws near. As Melbournians living fast-paced weeks packed with work and family commitments, there’s nothing better than connecting with nature to rebalance. Glamping (aka glamorous camping) is a wonderful way to unwind and relax without sacrificing life’s little comforts.  Whether you’re escaping with a loved one, as a family, with friends or by yourself, glamping is a fun experience for everyone. The latest blog from C&G highlights the best places to experience glamping, in Melbourne and beyond.

Happy Glamper

Neighbouring our favourite Bayside communities, Mornington Peninsula’s Happy Glamper offers bespoke and mobile glamping experiences. You have the option of choosing your campsite, whether it’s by the beach or on your private land.

You won’t be limited for things to do in the Mornington Peninsula, and for larger event bookings they can travel the eastern states and regional Victoria. Happy Glamper will provide you with a fresh bed, chairs, a selection of board games, an oasis of magazines and quirky décor.

Werribee Open Range Zoo

Only a short 30 minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD, the Werribee Open Range Zoo offers a memorable experience to all-comers with their Slumber Safari. Enjoy sunset nibbles and drinks, marshmallows on the campfire and wake up to the sounds of wildlife at your doorstep.

The Slumber Safari gets you two days of zoo entry with a hosted experience, African-inspired dinner and buffet breakfast, exclusive animal viewing opportunities and discounts on merchandise – plenty of fun for families!

Twilight Glamping

Offering a pop-up accommodation service for unique getaways, festivals, wedding and events, Twilight Glamping will facilitate your unique experience along glorious coastlines, beautiful winery estates or your very own backyard.

You don’t have to leave your furry friend at home either. Camp at Torquay, Anglesea and Lorne Foreshores, and they will supply you with pet friendly accessories, a feeding bowl and bowl, sleeping mat, doggy towel and treats galore.

Cosy Tents

Located 1.5 hours from Melbourne CBD, Cosy Tents are set amongst the natural country landscape of Daylesford and situated on a private luxury campsite. Sleep under the stars, sit by the fire and enjoy the fresh country air.

When in spa country… why not also book a mineral spa package as you’re just a short 15 minute drive from The Mineral Spa in Hepburn Springs? There’s also no shortage of restaurants, art galleries and wineries close by.
