This truly remarkable glamping site is located in Warburton, Victoria, Australia, and is located one hour to the east of Melbourne. It has a double bed and single upper kids bunk bed, a kitchenette, a tiny fridge, a fireplace, an outdoor bath, and mountains all around.

To the south is Bunyip State Park and to the east is the Yarra Ranges National Park, the Thomson Dam, and the Baw Baw National Park. The local summit has the closest snow to Melbourne in winter. Summers are wonderful with a river at the bottom of the street and walking/cycling rainforest trails at the top of the street.

It is only 10 min walk to public transport to and from Melbourne and 15 walk along the river to the cafes and shops. There is a 30-kilometer walking and cycling trail from Melbourne to Warburton that is also serviced by a bus if people get tired along the way.

To the northeast is the Alpine National Park and the nearest airport is Melbourne Airport, located around an hour and a half's drive away. Read More

There is plenty to do in the surrounding area to cater for all interests.

The Warburton Rainforest Gallery is a beautiful boardwalk that leads visitors over streams and through an area with picturesque tropical trees and ferns.

The area boasts wineries, farm gates, animal sanctuaries, cycling, walking and riding trails, and swimming, the list is endless! Local peak Mount Donna Buang is well worth exploring as it is a beautiful forested mountain surrounded by giant ash forests with trails leading up to the summit. The mountain offers a tower to climb for commanding views of the Upper Yarra Valley and there is snow for tobogganing in the winter. There is a large car park near the top of the mountain and a spring that runs with clear, cool mountain water.

The local redwood forest is extremely atmospheric, reminiscent of both Southern California and the Blair Witch Project. It's an excellent spot for photographs! The hike to La La Falls is great for visitors of all ages and offers plenty of opportunities to view nature, as well as seeing the waterfall at the peak. There is a rainforest trail to the largest tree in the state the Ada Tree!

Phoenix the owner of the gypsy wagon is helpful with information as well as offering half and full day tours to the popular sights and secret places with a local's knowledge and insight.
