Australia holidays: glamping

Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Brisbane—Australia is home to a wide variety of cities you're likely to have heard of. These cities are major tourist attractions and hubs for travel and while no holiday in or to Australia would be complete without at least a quick stop in one, you would be seriously missing out if you stick to the cities. Australia is the world's sixth-largest country, so it is only natural to find so many different natural landscapes. Visit Australia and explore with a different spin on your holiday—luxury camping. While hotels in Sydney or hotels in Melbourne are great, safari tents on Phillip Island, tree houses in the Blue Mountains, or even holiday cottages for rent on Mission Beach definitely win out. Make your next holiday in Australia one for the books; whether it is a family holiday, a romantic weekend getaway, or trip with friends, Australia is a glamping destination that cannot be missed.

Best outdoor activities in Australia

From the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland south to Kangaroo Island, from the Northern Territory deserts surrounding Uluru all the way to Western Australia's Margaret River, adventure is the Australian way of life. Some of the best outdoor activities in Australia can be found near our luxury camping accommodations. In the summers, island-hop and head to the Whitsunday Islands for some of the world's best sailing. Or you might prefer to have a walking holiday and spend your days hiking in the Flinders Ranges; Western Australia's Pinnacles Desert is also an out-of-this-world landscape perfect for a walking holiday. The list goes on—feast by the beach in Margaret River, take in the sun on the Gold Coast, dine under the stars in Uluru, dive with great white sharks on the Ningaloo Reef—we could go on, but you get the point. An outdoor holiday in Australia is the perfect way to explore the country, and why not make your holiday even better with any one of our amazing holiday accommodations for the perfect glamping getaway.

Top attractions in Australia

Tourist attractions in Australia are abundant, and while many are found in cities—like Sydney's Opera House—others are out in the great outdoors! Visitors to Australia cannot miss the Great Barrier Reef or the extensive kilometers of coast in Queensland; the Whitsunday Islands are another amazing outdoor attraction near the Reef. A few days in the Blue Mountains or Australian Alps would be well spent; some of Australia's best hikes can be found in these mountain ranges. Or you may prefer to head to the Northern Territory and learn about aboriginal culture and history as you explore Uluru. If you are in South Australia, Kangaroo Island is a must! And last, but not least, Australia is home to so many amazing national parks we don't even know where to begin—there is Daintree National Park, Flinders Chase National Park, Great Sandy National Park, Royal National Park, Grampians National Park, and so many more and each worth a visit!

Best time of year to visit Australia

As it is in the Southern Hemisphere, seasons in Australia are the opposite of the Northern Hemisphere with fall and winter from June through August and spring and summer from December through February. As Australia is so large, the best time of year to visit definitely depends on where you will be on holiday. The Northern Territory, home to Alice Springs, has temperate, dry winters with temperatures in the 20s Celsius (or 70s Fahrenheit) and has extremely hot summers with heavy rains. Queensland and New South Wales tend to have slightly colder winters with some rain, warm summers, and very nice temperatures for spring and fall.

South Australia sees winter temperatures that don't tend to go below 10° C (or 45°F) and summer temperatures that don't tend to rise past the mid-20s C (or low 80s F). The outback, however, sees very drastic temperatures and in winter or summer, these should be taken seriously. For those visiting to go whale watching in Nullarbor, the winter can be the best time—July and August are peak whale season. Western Australia is so large it has a few different climates. In general, the south is temperate with four distinct seasons, while the north is more tropical with wet and dry seasons.
