Glamping on the NSW South Coast: Pay for two nights, stay for three – until the end of summer
Australia’s first ‘glamping’ retreat, Paperbark Camp, is encouraging Australians to support the NSW South Coast in the wake of recent bushfires and stay for three nights at the luxury, ecotourism camp for the price of two.
Located 2½ hours south of Sydney, Paperbark Camp and Jervis Bay have been lucky to escape fire impact and are open as usual. The special deal will see guests enjoy the luxe bush retreat while supporting the South Coast economy as it recovers from a disrupted tourism season.
The special ‘three nights for two’ offer is available from $935 per couple, including three nights’ accommodation in a safari tent, two dinners and three breakfasts, for stays before February 29, 2020. The tariff includes the free night.
Nestled among spotted gums and paperbark trees, the camp boasts 13 elevated and luxurious safari tents with polished hardwood flooring, double canvas roofs, outdoor deck seating and private ensuites – with hot showers overlooking the bush. The Gunyah (an Aboriginal word for meeting place) is the heart of the camp, with a renowned restaurant, reception, bar and communal lounge area located among the treetops. The delicious and intricately designed three-course dinners are popular with guests and outside visitors, while in the morning guests can enjoy homemade granola with seasonal fruits, full cooked breakfast and freshly brewed coffee.
The property is home to kangaroos, wallabies, possums and colourful bird life, and is situated on the banks of the Currambene Creek. Guests at the picturesque retreat can enjoy relaxing among nature, meandering along the nearby walking trails, mountain biking, canoeing, swimming or exploring the local town of Huskisson. The camp provides both a relaxed escape from the world and a base from which to explore all the South Coast has to offer, including chalk-white beaches, dolphin watching, scenic views and charming villages.
Offering a blend of sophistication and simplicity, Paperbark Camp opened in 1999 as Australia’s first glamping property and was the brainchild of Sydney couple, Jeremy and Irena Hutchings, who were inspired by the safari tents they saw on an African holiday. Two decades on, the luxe bush retreat is as popular with lovers of nature and romance more than ever and continues to be at the forefront of ecotourism and luxury camping in Australia.
