Balgownie Estate Retreat

Camping at its most luxe.

This glamping spot doesn't just come with stars — it also comes with a cellar door, restaurant, acres of rolling vineyards and an outdoor clawfoot bath. You'll find said tub just outside the Safari Tent at Balgownie Estate Retreat, a 15-minute drive northwest of Bendigo. This tent is camping at its most luxe. It comes with a four-poster queen bed, patio, kitchenette and, most importantly for your post-soak needs, indoor heating. You can self-cater with the help of wine from the cellar door or visit the estate's restaurant for a bite of French bistro-inspired fare. And, if you can drag yourself away from this cosy tent for a little while, head into town to check out Bendigo Gallery, followed by a bar hop down Chancery Lane.
