Glamping isn’t just staying in a fancy tent. There are loads of unique and different forms of glamping including:

  • Luxury Tree Houses
  • Yurts
  • Cabins
  • Tipi’s
  • Domes
  • Plastic Bubbles
  • Pods
  • Caves
  • Barns
  • Cabooses (a train)
  • Huts and more!

In no particular order, here are the 15 best Glamping Spots in Australia:

1. Roar & Snore Taronga Zoo

Sleep to the sounds of the lions roaring whilst taking in the breathtaking views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, Roar & Snore is the ultimate place to stay with kids. A must-do whilst you are there is the night walk of the zoo. See the animals come alive at night with a guided tour by zoo staff. The tents have comfortable beds and VIP access to Taronga Zoo. The only downside is that there are shared bathrooms.

There is also a Roar & Snore at The Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo (that has its own ensuite). I’ve stayed there personally – it is bloody awesome!

2. Reefsleep on the Great Barrier Reef

Sleep under the stars on the Great Barrier Reef with this unusual two day, one-night glamping experience. Aboard a cruise ship from Airlie Beach and anchor right on the Great Barrier Reef where you can snorkel, enjoy the outdoor swimming pool on the boat and grab a free breakfast in the morning. Sleep in comfortable swags on the deck of the cruise ship with free access to the underwater observatory. All snorkelling gear is provided.

Although the actually ‘sleeping’ part doesn’t sound particularly glamourous – there aren’t many places you can sleep under the stars with the Great Barrier Reef merely steps from your bed.
