Continuing our series on where to go glamping in Australia (camping and luxury combined), today we cover a couple of options in Western Australia and Tasmania.
Part 1 introduced you to glamping in New South Wales and Victoria.
Part 2 highlighted glamping in Queensland and South Australia.
Glamping in Western Australia
Sal Salis is a safari camp nestled in the dunes of Western Australia’s Cape Range National Park.
Comprising only 9 tents, this campsite location is in an isolated part of of WA, but close to World Heritage Ningaloo Reef. The best way to get here is probably by air, as it would take 13 hours via road from Perth.
The 9 tents, on raised platforms come with their own ensuite, and large comfortable jarrah beds. The camp is located only 50m from the beach which means a large amount of water based activities are available to guests.

Outside of Broome, you will find Eco Beach Resort – where you can choose to stay in an Eco Tent (30 available).
Like all good glamping spots, you will find your own full ensuite, king sized bed and power supply, with your own deck area to relax.
This is a self catering style of glamping, where yyou will need to utilise the shared BBQ area. But the resort does have restaurants available should you wish for total care-free camping.
Many glamping options we have discovered, do not allow children at their locations – Eco Beach does cater for children.

Eco Beach Retreat
Glamping in Tasmania
In beautiful Tasmania, located in a private nature reserve, you would find Huon Bush Retreats.
Offering cabins and campsites, but something different from the rest of the sites we have covered – Huon has tepees for their glamping option. These tepees are constructed of timber and canvas, and come with a woodfire (definitely needed in winter in Tassie!).
This is a more basic glamping option than other such glamping locales – bathroom and toilets are shared, located a short distance from your tepee. No 240v in the tent itself, only 12v to run lighting. It is self catering via the camp kitchen.

For something a bit special, and combined with a hike on Maria Island over 4 days, then this is glamping with exercise and ever changing scenery.
The Maria Island Walk sounds an idyllic and civilised way to see Maria Island, Tasmania.
Walking during the day, gourmet dining at night, and then sleeping away in established huts, resting up for the next day’s walk (apparently all ages can do this walk). These huts may not have the TV and DVD players that other glamping sites offer, but the scenery of Tasmania would definitely be better than anything on the small screen.
