Do you ever feel like escaping the city and the weekly office 9-5 for wilder pastures? For a break from the city with the luxuries of a boutique hotel, glamping may be just the holiday for you! Far away from the stress of modern life, a long weekend or short stay going off the grid is the ultimate way to unwind.
When it comes to glamping, West Australians are spoilt for choice as there’s plenty of glamping hotels and eco retreats popping up. Gone are the days when you have to worry about setting up your own tent after a long day of travel. Glamping allow campers to experience the wonders of the outdoors without compromising on comfort. We’ve scouted four of the top glamping retreats that are perfect for a short stay away - September long weekend, anyone? - when you’re in need of a little pampering and R&R.
Mile End Glamping
