Looking for a last minute getaway this Queen's Birthday long weekend? You could be living the high life at the Lorne Glamping Fiesta, located at the beautiful Lorne Foreshore Caravan Park. Luxury is no longer an exclusive right of the rich and famous, even us commoners can get in on the act with a 3 night adventure including gourmet food and bespoke accommodation options.
The Lorne Glamping Fiesta is running from Friday 7th until Monday 10th June, in the coastal town of Lorne on the Great Ocean Road. You will be staying in a luxury bell tent which includes a queen sized bed, all linen and towels, as well as cosy touches such as blankets, rugs and cushions. And of course, the all important factor – heating! The glamping village is provided by Twilight Glamping who specialise in premium pop-up accommodation. You can choose to be located on a standard site, or you can go all out and select a prime river site, to maximise the luxury factor.
Not only does your package include accommodation but also gourmet food and activities. Two dinners are provided; one at Lorne's 5 star restaurant, Mestizo which serves up sumptuous Latin American fare and the other at Pizza Pizza (no prizes for guessing the type of cuisine on offer here). You will also be treated to a delicious cheese platter accompanied by a bottle of wine, and each morning you're welcome to swing by the Swing Bridge Cafe for a complimentary hot drink. One morning you can fill your tummy with a traditional camping breakfast, provided by the managers of the caravan park.
To burn off all that delicious food and drink your package also includes a visit to Live Wire Park. This park, located in Lorne itself, offers a range of different experiences from a scenic canopy walkway 10 metres above the rainforest floor, to the Shockwave Zip Coaster - the most extreme zipline in Australia.
To top off your experience, you can spend an evening relaxing under the stars at an outdoor cinema. Warm your belly with marshmallows toasted over the open flames of a roaring campfire and chill out in style. Prices start at $220 per night, twin share. Head over to the Lorne Foreshore Caravan Park website for all the nitty-gritty details.
