If you are behind the times or have been living under a rock for the past year and haven’t heard of glamping, then let me inform you of this wondrous way to holiday.

Glamping is a term derived from the two words: ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’ (obvs). It is initially accommodation that combines both the rustic living in the outdoors that you get from camping and the luxury and comfort of hotel accommodation.

Here are 5 reasons you should try glamping out for yourself:

1. Best of both worlds:

It is perfect for the type of person who wants to experience camping and the great outdoors, but would like the convenience of a toilet handy, or a shower to wash their hair. This type of person is one who cannot pitch a tent if their life depended on it. With glamping you get the best of both worlds.

2. It’s something different:

Sure you may have been camping every year since you were 3 or, you may have never camped in your life, preferring those skyscraper views and city lights. So why not mix things up a bit and experience something different for a change, heck! Be spontaneous!

3. It’s intimate and cute:

Glamping under the stars… it’s a perfect weekend getaway for you and your significant other. If you head to Dayesford to Cosy Tents, you could splurge with the Moet Moments package (anniversary perhaps?), with which you will be greeted by a bottle of Moet on ice upon arrival into your tent, plus fine chocolates and a peronalised message.

4. The choice of glamping locations is very diverse:

You won’t believe how many unique locations there are to go glamping. It’s not just the wine regions around Melbourne that sport the new holidaying trend; it’s the city itself, national parks, the outback and even the zoo! Yes you heard me right. There is a glamping spot at Taronga Zoo, Mosman, NSW and on the rooftop of Melbourne Central where St. Jerome’s hotel combines bush with city.

5. Enjoy the benefits of the nature surrounding you:

When you’re amongst nature, mineral springs and spas seem to go hand in hand. Relax, soak and revitalise yourself in hot natural springs of Hepburn Springs. Then afterwards head to a nearby winery, stroll through the beautiful vineyards at dusk and enjoy the authentic wine of the region.
