Never struggle with tent poles again. This is fuss-free camping at its finest.

If you love the idea of camping  but can’t be bothered with a DIY holiday, this burgeoning breed of luxury escape is practically pitch perfect. Camping’s more glamorous cousin, glamping, is all about getting back to basics in the great outdoors, but from the comfort of a fully furnished canvas tent.

You still get to experience the wonder and whimsy of sleeping with only a sheet of fabric between you and a canopy of stars, only it’ll be on a king size bed in a luxurious bell tent with a gas heater, hotel-grade pillows and phone-charging facilities. What’s not to love?

And with glamp sites popping up all over Victoria, there is no shortage of places where you can tune out and turn up the serenity. So if you’re after a more refined nature stay, here are ten of the best places to get your glamp on in Victoria.

10 of the best places to go glamping in Victoria

Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park

Halls Gap

From vintage caravans and luxury bell tents to tiny pods and epic safari-style yurts, there is a glamp site to suit every taste and budget at Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park (some come with their own private bathrooms). Wake up in a comfy four-poster bed to the sound of birds chirping, then sit out on your private deck and enjoy a gourmet breakfast. 

Balgownie Estate


There’s glamping. And then there’s glamping at Balgownie Estate. This Bendigo winery is upping the tent ante, with its super-stylish sites offering the ultimate in country relaxation. We’re talking luxury safari tents with wifi, queen-size beds and clawfoot bathtubs on private decks overlooking the vineyard. It’s the ideal fusion of hotel amenity (some options even include hairdryers, electric kettles and fluffy robes) and secluded rural retreat, so if you’re looking for a place to relax, reset and recharge (over a glass of wine or two), you’ve met your match.

Mornington Peninsula Glamping


Nestled among the vines at Blue Range Estate you’ll find Mornington Peninsula Glamping, a family-run glamp site perched high in the peninsula hinterland. Grab a bottle of bubbles and sit out on the sprawling deck at Blue Range Estate’s cellar door and watch the sunset over Port Phillip Bay or grab a bite to eat (or a cheese platter to go) and meander back to your secluded tent, which comes kitted out with luxurious 1000-threadcount cotton sheets, board games and even an esky to store food for breakfast. 

Iluka Retreat & Camp

Red Hill South

If cosy coastal camping is more your style then you’ll love the rustic rural ambience of Iluka Retreat & Camp. From its idyllic hinterland location, this bucolic escape – which is nestled between native woodlands and coastal wetlands – looks out over vast expanses of rolling hills and a glistening lake. The communal kitchen and campfire area are prime sunset-sipping spots, so pull up a chair, crack open a bottle of wine and settle in for a sparkling night.

The Sheltered Glamping Co

Phillip Island

This twinkling retreat offers guests more than just a luxurious escape. The Sheltered Glamping Co is a sustainable and eco-friendly glamping destination that combines high-end glamp accommodation with a minimal-impact mindset. The site is powered by renewable energy, the toilets are run using grey water and for every stay, owners Randall and Kat donate a percentage of the tariff towards organisations that do good in the community. If you want to feel good about getting away, there’s no better place for it.

Cosy Tents


Kick back in spa country at Cosy Tents, one of the state’s original glamp getaways. This idyllic escape is pitched in the middle of a golden field against a backdrop of rolling, tree-dotted hills. Despite its private location, the campsite is just 15 minutes’ drive into Daylesford or Hepburn Springs, making it an ideal base for exploring the best of the region. Stock up on fresh produce from the local farmers' market, or wines from nearby wineries. The campsite features a fully equipped outdoor kitchen so you can cook up a feast and then kick back by the communal fire with a glass of wine as you watch the stars come out to play. And forget thermals. Crank the in-tent woodfire stove during winter or, in the warmer months, turn up the Dyson fan.

Alpine Nature Experience

Mount Hotham

If you’d prefer to chill out literally, then what better way to do it than with an overnight stay in a luxury ‘igloo’. Yes, they’re a thing now. Mount Hotham’s new snow-domes are a seriously unique way of experiencing the magic of the mountains and, as well as being fully furnished (wood-oven heater and woolly blankets included), they are also eco-friendly and off-grid. The top panels of the snow-dome are also clear so you can lie back at night and watch the snowflakes fall around you, just like a snow globe. 

Twilight Glamping

Geelong and surrounds

For a choose-your-own glamping adventure, Twilight Glamping has you covered. Instead of having a fixed site, this Surf Coast-based glampster allows guests to pick where they want to set up the tent, then brings it to you. You choose your glamp site, then they set it up and style the tent for you. Recommended locations include the Torquay foreshore, Wye River Caravan Park and Anglesea Beachfront Caravan Park, among others. You can also choose from a selection of gourmet upgrades, including cheese platters and local wine and chocolate hampers. 

Prom Coast Eco Glamping  

South Gippsland 

Wake up overlooking the ocean with a Prom Coast Eco Glamping escape. This sustainable glamping experience offers multiple locations (including Yanakie Caravan Park and Eastern Beach Caravan Park in Lakes Entrance) or, if you have a picture-perfect spot in mind, you can nominate your spot and set it up for you. Escapes includes queen or twin single accommodation in four-metre hybric tent, five-metre canvas bell tent or a deluxe tent, and each comes decked out with linen, doonas, rugs and pillows, an esky, Bluetooth speaker, beanbag, and even an outdoor setting. 

Into the Woods Glamping 


If you love the idea of getting out into the great outdoors, but also want your creature comforts, Into the Woods Glamping has you covered. Whether it's for a romantic weekend escape or a girls getaway, there'sa luxury bell tent to suit your needs. Into the Woods is located at the Bright Caravan Park, which means happy glampers have access to the park's facilities - including heated showers, cooking facilities and recreational areas. The all-weather experience offers optional extras including heaters and firepits for the cooler months.
