Melburnians, when it comes to burgers, puppies and glamping, you absolutely can't get enough. Now that spring has sprung, 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 back its Glamping Amongst The Vines, a pop of up 15 luxury bell tents, for a second year. Perched near a private beach, this temporary village overlooks Port Phillip Bay and is 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 $5o, Terindah will make up a breakfast hamper for two, packed with fresh pastries, fruit, orange juice, hot chocolate and coffee. To keep you going through the day, you can add a picnic hamper ($100 for two), crowded with smoked and cured meats, fresh sourdough bread, cornichons, fruit and either terrine or camembert. A vego option is available, too, and 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, dinner on Saturday nights and lunch from Thursday–Monday.

If you don't have a car, you also have the option of catching a ferry to the 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

Glamping Amongst The Vines is located at 90 McAdams Lane, Bellarine, Victoria. The season runs from November 2019–May 2020 and tents are $220 per night.
