School holidays might've long stopped being relevant to plenty of our schedules, but they're still worth paying attention to for one reason. When students get a reprieve from class, plenty of places want to help fill their time — and, when something like lakeside glamping pops up for a two-week stint, it's not just for families.
From September 22 to October 8, Gypset Glamping is setting up camp at Lake Lyell in New South Wales' central west, about a two-and-a-half hour drive from Sydney. Their pop-up site will let attendees soak in the natural serenity and splendour at Lake Lyell Recreation Park, and enjoy a section of the lake that hasn't been previously used by campers.
Facilities-wise, visitors can expect luxe tents for two t0 four people, complete with double beds, silk cushions and solar phone charging ports; however, going glamping isn't just about lazing around in your own home away from home. The camp will also feature a shaded communal area with Bavarian beer hall tables, perfect for post-swim hangouts.
Tents start at $150 per night for a two-person setup, and $210 per night for four people, with a two-night minimum stay required. And if the timing isn't right, Gypset have other camps in the works too, with the company largely focusing on the Blue Mountains and central west region — just keep an eye on their website.
