The Best Luxury Glamping Spots In Victoria

Share this:

With more of us having to stay local with our travels this year, what better excuse is there to indulge in some luxury staycations right here in Victoria?

Luxury glamping in Victoria is something that has grown massively over the past few years. Glamping (camping but with more luxurious accommodation and facilities) is ideal for people who love the whole camping ‘experience’ and being outdoors, but prefer comfort and a good night’s sleep!

There’s no set up or fuss required for glamping and you have the benefit of all the familiar mod cons within, or next to, your cosy sleeping arrangements.

So whether you’re thinking about a couple’s getaway or plan on taking the whole family, here is a round up of some of the best glamping in Victoria, Australia.

Set amongst stunning gardens once owned by a famous local artist, Mirador Springs offers your very own generously sized nature retreat.

You can access all areas of the property including the extensive gardens and paths, natural spring, orchards and even pay a visit to the resident donkeys, goats and sheep!

The tent is fitted with a queen bed, lounge chairs and even a coffee machine.

I adore the seperate ‘bath house’ complete with a freestanding bath with 180 degree views out over the tranquil vegetation of your private retreat.

  • Ride along the Grand Ridge Rail Trail between Mirboo North and Boolarra.

Wine and camping go together like… well, wine and more wine.

Then put wine, camping AND the setting of a vineyard together and you have Grapevine Glamping – the absolutely perfectly paired trio.

Grapevine Glamping is a luxury glamping site located in the rural setting of the Rutherglen Wine Region, 42km away from Wangaratta and 45km from Yarrawonga.

Sipping on wine as you lie next to the very vines where the grapes are grown allows you to utterly disconnect from the stresses of everyday life.

These super cute bell tent accommodations are thoughtfully equipped with a proper queen size bed, bedside tables, a BBQ and outdoor furniture. Beside each tent there is a unit fitted with air conditioning, a shared bathroom and kitchenette with the usual facilities such as a microwave, toaster and fridge. 

However, with an on-site restaurant specialising in Australian cuisine, this is true gourmet glamping where the last thing on your mind is cooking for yourself!

– What is there to do in Rutherglen?

If you feel like prizing yourself away from your glamping accommodation at Cofield Winery, there are loads of activities to do in the area: 

  • Visit some of the other 20+ cellar doors to sample the region’s finest produce.
  • Hire a bike for the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail from Wahgunyah to Rutherglen.
  • Walk one of the many trails nearby the Murray River.
  • Explore the historic townships of Rutherglen with a history walking tour (or guide yourself).
  • Taste your way through the Corowa Whisky and Chocolate Factory.
  • See the Big Wine Bottle, Rutherglen’s most prominent landmark.
  • Hike in the nearby Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park.

For something a little unique, how about a tent ‘bubble’?

Get far away from the light pollution of the city to stargaze and nature watch from within these super cool-looking SkyTents.

Located on the remote Raymond Island near Lakes Entrance in Eastern Victoria, these glamping facilities really isolate you in the best possible way. No WiFi, close-up sea views and no neighbours to peek into your bubble (well, aside from the local wildlife) – bliss!

If you’re looking for peaceful, luxury glamping in Victoria to remember  – this is certainly a memorable option.

– What is there to do on Raymond Island?

Although going to an island like this is the perfect getaway to do nothing at all, here are some ideas of other things you can do near Raymond Island:

  • Spot the cute locals on the Koala Trail.
  • Hire or bring your bike to explore the island.
  • Learn about the island’s unique history as an early fishing station.
  • Enjoy fishing (just make sure you have a license).
  • Explore the Lakes National Park.
  • Join a Gippsland Lake sightseeing charter boat service.

4. Goldfield Glamping 

Price per night: from $150
Sleeps: 2 (1 bed)
Location: Clydesdale 
Check availability here
Photo by Goldfield Glamping

Nestled in the heart of the gold-mining region within a tranquil, rural setting, you’ll quite literally be striking gold with this ’boutique bush glamping’ experience. 

Unlike most other glamping options on this list, what I like about Goldfield Glamping’s teepees is that they come with their own private bathroom complete with toiletries, just metres away from the tent. It just adds that extra bit of privacy and convenience.

If you want to get social and meet your fellow glampers, there’s a communal firepit to drink wine, toast marshmallows and make some new friends. 

There’s also a BBQ, so make sure you stock up on some great local produce to cook up for dinner.

– What is there to do in Clydesdale?

Clydesdale itself is fairly remote, but it’s an ideal base to stay to explore the nearby towns of Daylesford, Castlemaine and Hepburn Springs. Here is what you can do in Clydesdale and the surrounds:

  • Ride a restored heritage train at the Daylesford Spa Country Railway for a step back in time.
  • Enjoy bush walking at the Rise and Shine Bushland Reserve.
  • Relax at the Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, a popular activity since 1895.

So turns out penguins aren’t the only reason to go to Phillip Island – you can camp in comfort under the stars, at any location on the island you wish!

Just tell this company where you would like to go and they’ll set up (and deconstruct) everything for you. All you need to do is pack your bags! 

I love this flexible concept and the detailing within these bell tents are simply adorable.

Another, more luxurious glamping option on Phillip Island is this utterly divine extravaganza that is so far from a tent, it will be suitable for even the most extreme camping hater!

Not only is there a private hot tub just outside, but also a four poster bed, wood burner, kitchen, bathroom, and lounge area INSIDE the tent. Safe to say it is pretty huge and would make the most romantic weekend getaway or a staycation with the kids.

It’s basically a whole house with a twist set in the pristine and secluded surrounds of Phillip Island. I’m in!!

– What is there to do on Phillip Island?

  • Watch the ‘Penguin Parade’ as the cute locals go out for their nightly feed.
  • Visit Nobbies Centre at Point Grant for education displays, fantastic boardwalks and admiring Australia’s largest seal colony.

I did my second year Working Holiday Visa farm work at a winery near Oxley and lived in Wangaratta, so it is an area I know very well. Here are the best things to do in Oxley and the surrounds:

  2. I have just returned to living in Bendigo after living in Canada for 3 years. I am so glad you included our glamping!! It is so lovely and a real tourist attraction in our little town!! The Sky Tent looks awesome too!! In Canada they had similar things to this for an outdoor dining experience in winter 🙂
    There is also a really cool experience at the Werribee Zoo which I have done.
    So many amazing spots in Vic!

  3. Wow, these all look gorgeous! If I had to choose one, it would definitely be Philip Island Glamping! Too bad the borders are still shut and I can’t leave Queensland!

  4. OMG I love the bubble tent. We love camping and going camping in these locations sound like such a great time. Especially if you’re coming from pretty far away, it’s a great way to camp without having to have everything you would need to car camp. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Wow these places look awesome. I need to get back to Victoria to try some of these. We stayed at an awesome glamping spot in Mt Hotham when in Victoria too. Glamping is such a fun way to travel.

    Reply
    • Ooh my partner always talks about Hotham as he used to do ski seasons up there. We need to go and check out this glamping place you’ve mentioned! And agreed 🙂

  6. Squeeee! These look so fun! I LOVE the look of that bubble tent to see the stars, but I guess that would be craaazily hot in the morning when you wake up!

    All the posh tents look great for glamping, but I like the sound of the ones close to wineries best! 😉

    Reply
    • Yes I thought that too but the listing says there is heating for the winter and I presume there is ventilation haha. I agree – the winery ones seem just so convenient to fall into after a day of tastings haha 🙂

  7. I recently got into glamping and these sites are giving me major FOMO. I can’t wait until covid clears out so i can take
