Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, we’re here to tell you that glamping tents are awesome! Glamping tents are cabin-tent hybrids that offer the best of both worlds – a camping experience with all the luxuries of a hotel room.
Our friends at NRMA Parks and Resorts agree – that’s why they’ve put glamping tents in seven of their holiday parks around Australia. The latest park to get the luxury treatment is Murramarang Holiday Park. The three new camping tents are located just metres from the beach. Each tent has a kitchenette, ensuite, air-con, TV and veranda with barbecue.
Murramarang is located on the beautiful NSW South Coast, just 15 minutes northeast of Batemans Bay. NRMA Parks and Resorts CEO Paul Davies said the area is perfect for glamping. “Waking up to the peaceful sounds of nature, meeting the local wallabies who hop along the garden and falling asleep to the sound of water lapping at the shore is enough to win over the fussiest of travellers,” he said.
Glamping tents are available at each of the stunning holiday parks below. Plus, they can all be booked on the Campstay website or mobile app! We’re definitely shacking up in a lux safari tent on our next holiday.
