Best glamping spots in Australia and New Zealand
Staying in a city at a fancy hotel can be so overrated. Getting to experience the serenity of nature while staying in a quirky structure is incomparable. And yes, we’re talking about glamping! Luckily, no matter where you live in Australia or New Zealand, there are plenty of amazing choices. These are some of the hottest new spots and there is truly something for everyone.
Glamping is currently taking over the travel industry. Folks are straying away from typical resorts and hotels. A yurt nestled into the mountainside or a treehouse deep in the jungle just has a bit more appeal – perhaps just for Instagram’s sake …
Of course, regular lodging or classic camping has a time and place. Yet, glamping is for those adventurous souls that still like to stay in luxury. Most glampsites will have a bed, plumbing, electricity, and obviously gorgeous scenery. Yet, some incredible ones will feature outdoor tubs, massage or yoga services as well as are also close to activities like wine tastings or hiking.
