You'll find the first at Lake Catani, in Mount Buffalo National Park, around four hours' drive northeast of Melbourne. Here, Under Sky – which takes glamping to festivals and various events – will be erecting ten bell tents filled with premium linen and comfy furnishings. When you're not marvelling at Lake Catani's tranquil waters and snow gum woodlands, you'll be able to get out and about exploring Mount Buffalo's 90 kilometres of walking tracks, waterfalls, wildflowers and native creatures.
Meanwhile, at Devil Cove in Lake Eildon National Park, the operators of much-loved country retreat Yea Peppercorn Hotel will be delivering, not just luxury bell tents, but Glamping With Nature — a full glamping experience. When you're not kicking back in your private canvas kingdom, you'll be able to try out cooking workshops, group fitness classes, kayaking adventures and health-and-wellness sessions.
At both Lake Catani and Devil Cove, food and drinks packages, filled with local goodies and concoctions, will be available, too.
Parks Victoria's glamping experiment are due to start in October and run until December. Prices begin at $130 per night per couple. Online bookings are available for Lake Catani over here and at Devil Cove here.
