Glamping Amongst the Vines

This glamping retreat is set on a winery with its own private beach.

Melburnians, when it comes to burgers, puppies and glamping, you absolutely can't get enough. And now another opportunity to disappear into a bell tent has arisen. This time, you'll be heading to Terindah Estate, a winery on the Bellarine Peninsula, 20 minutes' drive east of Geelong and 80 minutes' southwest of Melbourne.

Terindah has partnered with Twilight Glamping to bring you Glamping Amongst The Vines, a pop of up 15 luxury bell tents. Perched near a private beach, this temporary village overlooks epic views of Port Phillip Bay, backdropped by the Melbourne skyline. The scene is particularly dramatic, come sunrise and sunset.

In between soaking up nature, kick back on a queen-sized bed (or a twin, if you're travelling with a mate), draped in luxurious linen and plenty of cosy blankets. Every tent also comes with a jute rug, chairs, side table, mirror, towels and USB-powered lantern. Shower facilities are also located on site.

There's no need to cook – nor go anywhere – if you're not in the mood. For $25 per person, Terindah will deliver a French breakfast basket, packed with fresh pastries, chocolate bread, orange juice and coffee ($25 per person). To keep you going through the day, you can add a picnic hamper ($100 for two), crowded with terrines, smoked and cured meats, fresh sourdough bread, Manzanillo olives, cornichons and pickles. You can choose to devour this on the beach, or eat it amongst the wines.

Another culinary option is The Shed, Terindah's onsite restaurant, which is open for brekkie on weekends and dinner on Saturday nights.

If you don't have a car, you also have the option of catching a ferry to the new beachside glamping site. Jump on the Port Phillip Ferry at the Docklands and you'll be picked up when it docks at Bellarine's Portarlington Tents are $200 per night.
