You Can Now Go Glamping at Mount Cotton's Sirromet Winery

Queensland's first vineyard glamping launches this weekend.

Already home to grapevines as far as the eye can see, a restaurant with views over Moreton Bay, a nine-hole modified form of golf and regular concerts, Mount Cotton's Sirromet Winery has added another attraction to its expansive 560-acre grounds: onsite glamping.

Dubbed 'Sanctuary by Sirromet' and launching on June 1, the new accommodation option lets wine-loving campers spend a night or several in one of 18 luxe tents. It's also the first vineyard glamping experience in Queensland.

Visitors can get cosy in one of 15 couples' abodes, two family tents and one specifically designed as a bridal suite, with each featuring king beds, indoor day chairs, outdoor tables and seating, bathrooms with a shower and toilet, and reverse cycle air-conditioning to cope with southeast Queensland's usually-warm weather. Every safari-style tent also includes a breakfast hamper filled with croissants, bagels, smoked salmon and coffee — and, naturally, a mini-bar filled with Sirromet wine. And while you'll be able to connect to the outside world via free wifi, what you won't find is a television.

Instead, everyone is encouraged to soak up the scenic surroundings. Or drink wine. Or both. Let's face it, you don't go glamping at a winery without hitting the vino and revelling in nature. Wallabies are known to graze around the tents, so you might have company. For those more keen on drinking side of things, you can enjoy the daily tastings and tours, grab a snack up on the Tuscan Terrace and stock up on supplies to take home from the cellar door.

Unsurprisingly, you can expect to drop a few dollars on the experience, with tents at Sanctuary starting at $280 per night — with a two-night minimum. Eventually, 54 tents will be littered across 20 acres, with the winery spending more than $10 million on its new addition.

Find Sanctuary by Sirromet at 850 Mount Cotton Road, Mount Cotton, or head to sanctuarybysirromet.com for bookings and further details.
