There's nothing quite like the great outdoors of our great state, even during wintertime. The colder seasons can sure turn up the beauty and tranquillity, and you might find yourself itching to get away for a weekend, whether with your significant other or with the family. Camping is a great experience, but it sure isn't for everyone. Enter; Glamping. This modern and luxurious twist on camping is perfect for those wanting to get close to nature, but you're also not a wilderness aficionado. If you're after a truly unique accommodation experience, we've gathered the four best places to get glamping in Victoria this winter.
The Halls Gap Lakeside Tourist Park is a favourite amongst both couple and family travellers, ticking all the right boxes and offering a variety of unique glamping experiences.
