Bruny Island Campsite
Luxury tented retreat
You might wake to a gentle thumping past your canvas abode by an inquisitive wallaby, or it may be the aroma of warm croissants which lures you from your king-sized luxury.
Nestled in a private 100-acre property on the edge of the South Bruny National Park is a glamping haven built completely off-the-grid. It's equipped with a solar panel, rainwater tank and a gas system for a lovely hot shower at the end of a day's walk – the outdoor shower, framed by towering eucalyptus, is a particular highlight for guests. There are also power points to recharge your phone or camera batteries as it'll be hard not to take plenty of photos!
Bruny Island (only around 50km in length) is home to some of Tasmania's most preserved landscapes and this comfortable tented retreat lets you indulge in the scenery and wildlife with minimal environmental impact.

Flinders Island Eco-Comfort Camp
Exclusive safari-style tents
Sleep under the Tasmanian night sky, in a spacious two-person safari-style tent which is elevated on a platform with an entrance deck to allow for a clean sleeping space, and somewhere to sit and enjoy the peace.
In the same unique and innovative design as the sleeping tents, a permanent kitchen and undercover dining area allow for a panoramic spot - a perfect place for a chat about the day’s events and a hearty evening meal with your fellow trekkers.
