GLAMPING. If you’re not on the band wagon, I suggest you get on it. ‘Glamorous camping’ are the only two words you need to know. Yes, we are talking a real bed, décor, lights, soft 5-star linen and of course, luxe shampoo and conditioner. I mean what more do we need to say! If rugged camping isn’t your thing, take note of these 5 places you can glamp in the outback instead.
Number 1: Club Boutique Hotel Cunnamulla Safari Glamping, QLD
Cunnamulla is 700km west of Brisbane, or a 2 or 3 day drive if you are coming from Adelaide. It is a remote country town, full of life and a perfect spot for your first glamping experience.
At Club Boutique you will experience the night in a boho inspired bell tent. Your tent will be graced with a plush queen bed and soft cosy linen. You have the option to turn it into a family room with the addition of up to 3 single beds. You will be gifted with free Wi-Fi (trust me, you will want to Instagram this spot)! The bar fridge will be stocked with snacks (a selling point on its own) and you will have plenty of tea and coffee for a morning cuppa in bed.
