A fabulous way to get back to nature without compromising on life’s little luxury’s!! With celbs such as Kate Moss, Peaches and Pixie Geldof choosing tents over a posh hotel, there is know doubt that glamping is the new holiday choice!
With no telephones, TVs, CD players to distract you, your focus turns to the surrounding environment. Our concept is simple – we have focussed on key creature comforts, a wonderful comfy king size bed (or twin beds), 100% cotton linen, large soft bath towels, a high pressure shower and a flushing toilet of course!! A chandelier over the top, custom made Indian Rugs add a touch of elegance and romance. If you should choose one of our luxury tents then you can lie in your private timber bathtub, surrounded by fragrant candles and take in the spectacular views. Each tent boasts total privacy and sits on a raised platform, one metre off the ground. Each tent is equipped with a BBQ, day bed, hammock, comfy chairs on your front and back veranda’s so you can take in the morning birdsong, or sit and be amused by our friendly wallabies or just lie there and take in the amazing views of the caldera’s natural beauty. We provide an informal level of attention that is only possible when you are one of a small number of guests. It is our knowledge of the area and absolute desire to make your stay memorable that brings the experience alive. ! You will just love this new concept in camping, we call it - “glamping.”
For breakfast we deliver our complimentary delicious gourmet breakfast basket to your tent. Filled with organic muesli, seasonal fruits, homemade yoghurt, juice and freshly baked bread and jams. For dinner why not enjoy one of our fabulous optional DIY BBQ packs filled with locally sourced organic beef, chicken or fish, potato salad and green salad. Or if you prefer ’pick your own salad’ from your very own veggie patch along side your tent!! If you don’t wish to cook your own BBQ then for a small additional cost we can cook it all for you. A great dinner experience which allows you to relax under the dark velvet night sky and be amazed by the sparkling light of millions of shining stars and the sounds of our wildlife.

We offer good old fashioned service at a nice slow pace which makes for a wonderfully relaxing experience. Come visit us!!
The Northern Rivers Region of Australia is located on the far North coast of NSW and runs from Grafton, Lismore and Ballina in the South, to the Tweed Shire in the North. Whilst other shires in the Northern Rivers region claim to be the gateway to the rainforests and World Heritage Listed National Parks of Northern NSW, in the Tweed Shire you have finally arrived.
Nestled right up against the NSW/Queensland Border at Tweed Heads in the North and stretching down the Tweed Coast and Tweed Hinterland to just before Byron Bay in the South, the Tweed Shire is not only famous for its unsurpassed beauty, but for its geographical and cultural diversity and terrific climate – with a summer mean temperature range of 18 to 30 Celsius (64 to 86F), and winter being a marvellous experience with mean temperatures ranging from 7 to 22 C (45 to 72F), which means log fires at night and t-shirts and shorts during the day.
A visit to the Tweed brings you to the largest sub-tropical rainforest remnant in the world, the most bio-diverse region in Australia and the biggest extinct shield volcano in the world.
With its pristine beaches (and the added advantage of no stinging jellyfish in summer like the Queensland beaches), rivers and creeks meandering through lush green valleys and towering rainforests, the Tweed Shire is spectacularly beautiful.
The Tweed Valley is an area of such vast natural beauty that you should be sure to plan to stay for more than just a few days in order to see as much as possible.
Home to 5 world heritage listed national parks
The world's largest extinct shield volcano above water
Highest level of bio-diversity in Australia
A range of activities from golf and horse riding to micro light and light plane flights, kayaking, bush walking, bird watching
