I am not a fan of traditional camping, but when the opportunity came for glamorous camping in the Barossa Valley I took up the offer straight away. Glamping, a word coined from the combination of "glamorous" and "camping", involves luxurious accommodation, facilities and amenities alongside recreational tent-living in and amongst nature.
Ranked as one of the best glamping experiences in South Australia, Discovery Parks Barossa Valley offers two-person deluxe safari tents tucked among native gums within an exclusive adult-only area. The tents feature a spacious bedroom with king-sized bedding, modern ensuite bathroom and very well equipped kitchenette. They also have a private three-metre deck outside as well as efficient heating/cooling inside. Plus, there is free WiFi for those who cannot pull themselves away from their electronic devices.
Nestled within the private area, you get exclusive access to its purpose-built firepit, premium BBQ space and outdoor lounge, heated swimming pool and spa. And, if you so desire, you could also avail yourself of the park's general activity room, "splashtacular" waterpark and camp kitchen. Just five minutes' walk from the Tanunda town centre, this glamping experience truly embraces lavish comfort and I would say is the ultimate luxury camping escape for me.
