5 Comfortable Glamping Sites in Australia

Posted by on Sep 28, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

If you aren’t yet familiar with the term “glamping”, it is a relatively new word and concept. This is luxury camping in style; the word combines glamour and camping together. This is perfect for those who love travelling and seeing the great outdoors in Australia, but also appreciates some of the creature comforts that might be missing in a regular bush camping situation.

These five glamping destinations are great places to visit and staying in the luxury camping accommodations make the adventure all the more exciting, comfortable, and very special at the same time. Some of the destinations in Australia require a 4WD to traverse some rugged terrain. However, that’s no problem at all when you hire a four wheel drive vehicle through Budget Trucks Australia.

We help you choose the best vehicle for your needs and help you get to where you want to go safely. We will be featuring a glamping spot in each of Australia’s 5 mainland states:

  • Longitude 131° at Uluru in Northern Territory
  • Pebble Point near Twelve Apostles in Victoria
  • Mornington Wilderness Camp in Western Australia
  • Spicers Canopy in Queensland
  • Taronga Zoo Roar and Snore in Sydney, New South Wales

Here is a little bit about each of our 5 comfortable glamping sites to visit in Australia.

Longitude 131° at Uluru in Northern Territory

Longitude 131° is glamping in the wilderness at its finest. This campsite is located at the base of Uluru, the largest monolith rock in the world and one of the most recognisable sights in Australia. The luxury tents are eco-friendly as well as comfortable. The accommodations feature elevated tents with king size beds fitted with organic linens.

Guests will enjoy access to the library filled with historical literature, maps, books, and Aboriginal artefacts. Guests also have access to the Dune House Restaurant where meals are freshly prepared. At night, listen to Dreaming Stories from the Aboriginal elders told around the campfire. Days at Longitude 131° are filled with tours of Uluru, Kata Tjuta, the nearby caves, and bush walks. Staying here allows you to see the beauty of the outback and how it changes with the sunrise and sunset.

Pebble Point near Twelve Apostles in Victoria

The Twelve Apostles are one of the most magnificent coastal attractions along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria west of Melbourne. The Great Ocean Road and the Great Ocean Walk takes travellers along the southern coast of Victoria where you can see some of the most dramatic and spectacular coastline in Australia, and even the world.

Pebble Point is a retreat located in the village of Princetown that is close to the Twelve Apostles and other popular structures like the London Bridge, The Arch, Loch Ard Gorge, and the Bay of Islands. The luxury accommodations are close to three national parks; plus this is a great halfway point for travel along The Great Ocean Road. Pebble Point’s spacious tents include king size beds and ensuite bathrooms and private decks that overlook the Southern Ocean and the Otway Ranges. All aspects of the retreat are eco-friendly and sustainable with conservation of the environment in mind.

Mornington Wilderness Camp in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia

Mornington Wilderness Camp is an eco-retreat with luxury glamping accommodations. It is owned and run by an organisation called the Australian Wildlife Conservancy which purchases properties and then ensures that they are protected sanctuaries. The sanctuary encompasses 312000 hectares of land in the upper catchment area of the Fitzroy River and King Leopold Ranges.

Steps are taken to ensure that this land remains sustainable and that the wildlife on it is protected. The focus here is on conservation, more so than tourism; however that doesn’t mean that they skimp on any accommodations. The amenities in the luxury tents include ensuite bathrooms and private balconies for overlooking the outback.

The camp’s chefs will prepare and serve breakfast each morning and dinner each night of your stay in addition to a picnic lunch to go for your tours and travels each day. The places to go during your daily tours and travels include some of the most remotely majestic locations in this region known as the Kimberley in northern Western Australia.

Tour the amazing scenery you will see includes the Fitzroy River, the Adcock River, Annie Creek, Sir John Gorge, and Dimond Gorge. Activities include bush walking, swimming, hiking, canoeing, adventuring on the self-drive trails, or taking an eco-tour. The Mornington Wilderness Camp is considered one of the best stops on the famous road trip through the Kimberley called the Gibb River Road.

Spicers Canopy, Main Range National Park in Queensland

Spicers Canopy Retreat is located in the Scenic Rim of Queensland near Main Range National Park. As the name indicates, this is one of the most scenic spots for camping in the wilderness. The Scenic Rim’s mountain peaks: Mount Mitchell, Spicers Peak, and Mount Cordeaux were all once active volcanoes that have shaped the geography and landscape of this region.

Spicers Canopy Retreat is an eco-friendly resort with a focus on making as little impact as possible on the environment. This is especially so as not to disrupt the fragile environment as Spicers Peak is a working Australian cattle station. Beef is one of the biggest products in Australia and is an important part of the economy as well as the environment.

Spicers Canopy Retreat’s accommodations include king size beds and hardwood floors in each luxury style tent. Window flaps open in each tent that allow for beautiful views of the mountains all around. The resort achieves an excellent blend of luxury and conservation with solar powered bathrooms, a stone fireplace, and a worm farm that processes waste.

Sydney’s Taronga Zoo Roar and Snore

Even though the glamping spot we picked to represent New South Wales isn’t a typical wilderness glamping spot, don’t think that doesn’t mean there aren’t remote glamping destinations in New South Wales because there are plenty. However, we just love the unique experience that you can have at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo’s Roar and Snore.

You can spend the night camping out at the zoo which is located right in the city. However, even though the zoo is in the city limits located in Mosman, it is a huge zoo on 21 hectares of land with over 4000 animals on exhibit. Book in advance to enjoy the Roar and Snore sleepover which starts with your arrival in the early evening with snacks and up close encounters with some friendly zoo creatures, next it is onto a dinner buffet with some amazing views of the harbour and the city skyline.

After tea, coffee, and desserts, it’s time to retire to the zoo safari tents. The tents include hardwood floors, comfortable beds, and separate bathrooms. All close enough to hear the animals through the night. In the morning, guests are treated to a continental breakfast and then two different behind the scenes tours before getting to spend the rest of the day at the zoo.


5 Ways to Stretch Your Budget on a USA Road Trip

Posted by on Sep 7, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Road trips are super popular right now, offering the chance to explore vast areas at your own pace, while avoiding costly flights. It’s an adventurous alternative to the traditional trip, but it still pays to be prepared. The cost of being on the road can creep up if you’re not careful. Here are five suggestions to help you make the most of your money while you’re away.

Consider Camping

You might not want to do this for the whole trip, but a couple of nights here and there could significantly reduce your hotel expenditure. There are plenty of great camping spots around the US, so it’s definitely worth having a browse to see if you can make them work on your route. Pack a tent, a couple of sleeping bags and a camping stove, and you’re good to go. For a campsite with a view, try the Grand Canyon National Park or Memaloose State Park in Oregon.

Pack a snack

Gas station stops can start to add up if you’re buying snacks here and there every time. An easy way to avoid this is simply to bring as much as you can with you. Items that won’t spoil in a hot car are good – such as nuts and seeds, popcorn, dried fruit, and celery dipped in peanut butter. You could even bring a cool bag with some fruit, hummus, cheese sticks and yogurt. Plenty of bottled water is an absolute must, and another good idea is to bring your own teabags and a travel mug, which you can fill with hot water at hotels and restaurants.

Budget USA Road Trip

Make Free Stops

There will be plenty of sights and activities that you will want to see and experience on your route, but not all of them have to be costly. Beaches, galleries, museums, flea markets, music events – many of these are either free or low-cost. Flea markets are also fabulous venues to pick up unique and interesting souvenirs, so be sure to seek them out along the way. Free music and small town festivals can be found all over the place, and offer a certain local charm. Try the directory to see which take your fancy

If you’re into biking, be sure to check out our previous post on the Top 5 Bike Riding Places in the USA – another fab free activity that will give you a different perspective on a place to simply driving through it.

Search for Deals

This applies both before you go, and while you’re on the trip. Rocking up to a hotel without a booking, for example, almost always guarantees the most expensive rate. For last minute hotel deals, it is always worth checking online or getting a travel agent to check for you. Likewise when it comes to eating out, look online or in local newspapers for vouchers and coupons, and you could save yourself a pretty penny when it all adds up. If you know the name of the place you want to try, even checking their social media pages can yield unexpected offers – or try googling the name along with ‘discount’ to see what comes up. For chains such as Chili’s and Olive Garden, you can get as much as 30 percent off using GiftCardGranny.

Budget USA Road trip

Be Gas-Efficient

Gas is likely to be one of the most significant expenditures on your trip. So when you’re trying to keep costs down, there are various ways to optimise and save on your fuel usage. Prices have risen in the last year, but it can vary from station to station, so one way to search for the best prices in your local area is to use a directory like

Before leaving, if you’re using your own car, get it checked over and ensure you have the optimum tire pressure and tread for all those miles you’ll be packing in. Alternatively if you’re renting a car, try to get one that is highly fuel-efficient, such as a hybrid. Packing lightly to reduce weight will help you to save, as will driving at the correct speed and avoiding rapid acceleration or sudden braking. Planning your route to avoid toll roads will save you several dollars here and there as well – it all adds up.

In short, you don’t need to spend a fortune to see and do some amazing things. With some careful planning, clever packing and useful apps, you can save yourself a bundle.
