Glamping in Australia: where to go? QLD and SA.

Continuing our series on where to go glamping in Australia, this series highlights, a few properties in each state where romance and camping meet in luxury surrounds.

Part 1 covered New South Wales and Victoria glamping locations.

Today, in Part 2, we look at Queensland and South Australia.

Glamping in Queensland

In the township of Boonah, 90 minutes from Brisbane, you will find Ketchup’s Bank Glamping, eco-tents in a private eucalypt forest, these tents are for couples only (no children), and comes with everything you could want from a camping experience including own campfire (marshmallows supplied!) 

With your own camp kitchen (they wash up for you which I find highly appealing), this is a luxurious camping retreat in Queensland.

Alure at Stanthorpe is 2.5 hours from Brisbane and caters to those who want either a villa or a tent experience.   

Alure has a tent that is not an what you would call an  everyday tent – at 56 m2 on a timber deck, it comes with air conditioning and an eco-fireplace.    The ensuite comes with designer toiletries, GHD straightener and heated towel rails!     

Still want more in a tent?   Then you will find a full kitchen (with espresso maker), entertainment centre and a full laundry (if you want to do something that mundane).    And then there is the outdoor spa…….

This place appears to be better than my house!

Glamping in South Australia

Gawler Ranges Wilderness Safaris are located 600kms NW of Adelaide, so flying might be the way to go if you are looking for a romantic camping moment, away from Adelaide.

Two options for glamping are available – the luxury safari tent (pictured below) or the “swagon”, a covered wagon.   The tents come with own private showers and toilets.

Due to open early in 2014, Ikara Safari Camp is the latest camping option offered by Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges.  

Ikara camping is to be 15 tents, all with king beds, ensuites and power and cooling.    Not a lot of other details are available, but the site says it will have shaded decks with seating but it sounds like a beautiful part of South Australia to try luxury camping.
