Glamping – glamorous camping – is an emerging trend in the Australian (and international) holiday sector that combines camping with the luxury of a five-star hotel experience.
Caravan Industry Association of Australia, CEO Stuart Lamont said, “Glamping is something that at first seems ridiculous – but it really is proof that opposites attract. Park owners are providing a service that they see the public want, and it is getting more popular every year.”
“It’s the sort of resort-style retreat that offers that little something different, and a wholesome experience people who went camping as children long to return to – without the composting toilets!”
