Camp in luxury among the olive groves in the Grampians.
If you've seen our round-up of the best places to glamp around Melbourne, you'll know camping is no longer just for nature-loving adventurous types. And this latest pop-up proves just that. For the month of April, outdoor experience experts Under Sky will set up a temporary glamping hotel just next to the Grampians National Park. It's a chance to immerse yourself in one of Victoria's most picturesque regions and enjoy all the great outdoors has to offer without any of the rough aspects of camping.
The hotel will be set up on the family-run Mount Zero Olives property, right next to the base of Mount Zero in an olive tree grove. $250 will score you a night in a bell tent, with many of the luxuries you could expect from a top hotel, including a comfy queen bed, linens and towels, toiletries and even a couple of deck chairs. Spend the night stargazing and fall asleep to the sounds of the rustling olive trees.
There is a communal kitchen area and barbecue if you want to cook your own food, but the Mount Zero cafe will be reopening just for the pop-up. Come breakfast, you can stroll over for a hot meal or have a homemade breakfast hamper for two delivered to your door (for $45). If you're looking to explore the area, have a look at our 48-hour guide to the Grampians.
You can also have a good night's sleep knowing that Under Sky takes environmental responsibility very seriously. When the pop-up is over, all traces of the campsite will be removed to allow Mother Nature to do her thing in peace.
