Experience a luxury holiday less ordinary.
Love the idea of getting up close with nature, but still want to experience the plushness of a hotel? Just a two-and-a-half-hour drive south of Sydney, Paperbark Camp in Jervis Bay is the ultimate in glamping (glamorous camping).
Think luxe safari tents flanked by a wrap-around deck, a feather-soft double bed (with hanging net in tow) and a luxurious outdoor clawfoot bathtub overlooking the surrounding wetlands. The idea for Paperbark Camp was conceived during a trip to Africa and it is easy to spot the subtle cues taken from the great game reserves – this is eco-tourism at its best.
Breakfasts are included in your stay and served in The Gunyah, the heart of the camp fitted with cosy couches and a roaring fire during winter. The crystal- clear waters of Jervis Bay are only moments from camp, easily accessible via bike or for the adventurous type, canoe. Why not pick up a picnic (available from the Bunyah) and spend the day beach hoping throughout the Jervis Bay National Park followed by a sunset drink at The Husky (the Huskisson Pub) then feast on a delicious dinner (all locally sourced produce) back at the Bunyah.
Fancy a winter glamping break? Book in for the all-inclusive ‘Taste of Jervis’ package starting from $525 (a special winter rate, valid from June 13 to September 4), a two-night stay that includes daily breakfast and a gourmet dinner.
