[ADVERT]Located 200 kilometers south of Sydney and close to the natural attractions at Jervis Bay, Paperbark Camp offers the ultimate eco friendly retreat.
Paperbark Camp is ideal for those who love being close to nature but enjoy a comfortable base from which to explore. If you're not a fan of smelly sleeping bags placed over rocky and insect infested grounds, glamping may be the ideal getaway for you.
Guests enjoy luxurious tents in tranquil surroundings. The 12 safari style tents (8 original and 4 deluxe) have been built on timber platforms with wrap around verandahs, private outdoor ensuite, solar power lighting and luxurious linen. Deluxe tents also have an outdoor lounge area and freestanding bath as well as shower.
Guests enjoy breakfast and dinner in the award winning restaurant The Gunyah. The restaurant is built high off the ground and diners can take in the tranquil surroundings and serene ocean breeze. My recommendations are butter poached asparagus, veloute, smoked almond, hen's egg yolk and tarragon for an entree, kingfish, pumpkin and ginger puree, onions, leeks and mojama for a main, and lemon polenta cake, crushed meringue and thyme infused curd for dessert. Delish!
Jervis Bay has long been the locals secret but it is increasingly being discovered by visitors and offers diving, snorkeling, surfing bike riding and bushwalking. For those who don't want to venture too far there are plenty of nearby walking trails and other activities including canoeing along the nearby Currambene Creek, birdwatching and spotlighting for nocturnal wildlife such as gliders and possums.
the restaurant was good but i didn't like staying in the tents. even though it's 5 star camping ie glamping i much preferred staying in a hotel and not having to worry about mosquitoes and have a toilet that was enclosed rather than open to the elements. 5 star camping = 1-2 star hotel in my books.
