Get Your Glamp-on: Here’s The Best Glamping Spots Near Brisbane

Camping you can finally get around

By Bella Stephan | 12th August 2019

Don’t fancy being eaten alive by mosquitoes, the grains of sand in your bed and the overall not-so-glamorous experience that camping is known for? Not to worry, not many of us do! Though, if you’re having a squabble about the thought of having to surrender to camping there’s always glamping! A nice compromise that’s in-between the deluxe hotel life and roughing-it-up style of camping trips. Glamping is sure to be an easy, comfortable and relaxing holiday, and it could be the closest to The Hilton in the wild you may get! We’ve rounded up the top five glamping experiences close to Brisbane but far enough away to feel like you’re on vacay in the tropics!

Castaways | Moreton Island

Situated on Moreton Island, a 60-minute ferry ride away from Northshore Brisbane, Castaways has 11 fully furnished tents with verandas overlooking the picturesque Moreton Island nature. Queen-sized beds and private ensuites a welcomed feature with a minimum of a 2-night stay valued at $163. No setting up the tent, rolling out your sleeping bag or swatting those flies away; this glamping set up is beautifully laid out for your stay! Only 100 metres walk from the beach you can spend your time relaxing around the shore and at the local Castaway’s café.
