There’s no doubt about it Caravan parks are a popular choice for those who like to get away. But if you don’t have a caravan or a tent, I’ve got some other options today you might like to consider.
If you love the idea of camping, but find organising and packing all that gear a bit too tiresome why not try Glamping? “Glamourous camping’ if you like!
Kelly: They’re gorgeous Louise aren’t they?
Louise: Hopefully they’ll be very popular.
Kelly: How many do you have?
Louise: We have 2 Oz Shacks, which are what we call wooden tents and we’ve got a different looking one which we call an Oz Pod, which is a more galvanised looking one.
Kelly: How many do they sleep?
Louise: They all sleep 4, so a queen sized bed and 2 singles.
Kelly: Louise from Port Vincent Foreshore Caravan Park says their two glamping options are easy on the budget and very popular.
Louise: Every time someone pulls up or walks past they just think they’re fantastic, they love the shape and the uniqueness of them…people that are actually sleeping in them, just something different, just something really unique that’s not the normal self-contained cabin, or the tent or the caravan.
Kelly: Further down Yorke Peninsula at Hillocks Drive is deluxe option like no other. Their “Ocean Pod’ has comfy beds, ensuite bathroom, and a compact kitchen while outside the BBQ and fire pit overlooks your own private beach.
Over on Eyre Peninsula you really can’t go past the Gawler Ranges Wilderness Safaris Eco Tents or their “Swagons”– where you sleep in a cosy swag inside a renovated wagon.
A new addition to Wilpena Pound resort is the Ikara Safari Camp – the perfect base for a Flinders Ranges experience and closer to town you’ll find glamping tents at Belair National Park and the award-winning Adelaide Shores.
Caravan and camping has certainly come a long way from the days of old so why not try something different and glam up a camping adventure somewhere in South Australia soon!
