Five Star kids Travel and Lifestyle

We were pretty chuffed to be listed in Five Star magazine this summer. Described as being one of the ‘new breed’ of camping companies who provide a little bit of luxury in the outdoors. We love creating that perfect stay for families. And we know kids love camping! As one of our younger guests said to her mother, ‘I never want to leave!’ And another mother described it as a magical moment seeing her girls enter the tent. We think we might give ourselves a little pat on the back and say well done to us and this stellar line up of…

View Larger View Larger View Larger We're thrilled to be able to share the good news that the Murrumbidgee river will be restored by conservation, Indigenous and science groups. What has that got to do with Happy Glamper? Well we’ve been up there providing a glamping stay and catering for these good folk who have been chosen by the NSW Government to be the managers of the Nimmie-Caira project — ‘arguably the most ambitious environmental project to come out of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.’ Check out this stunning country from the ground and air!!

View Larger View Larger View Larger Spring 2017 is nearly here, which marks the start of our 5th glamping season. We started way back in Spring 2013 as the first mobile glamping provider in Victoria. It's gone so fast, it really does prove that time flies when you're having fun! As well as continuing to highlight the Mornington Peninsula to independent travellers via our mobile service, event hire is becoming a large focus for us. Just this month we created a large bell tent village for 70 people as part of an annual team-building retreat held on a sheep farm!...

Adventure to Devil’s Corner, Tasmania

By | Bell Tents, Event Hire, Glamping Australia, Media

Although Happy Glamper’s focus is strongly on the Mornington Peninsula every now and then we like to embark on adventure projects, such as Jessie travelling to Byron Bay to provide glamping for the ‘Local Milk’ Slow Living Retreat in April 2015. Jessie was getting itchy feet again when she was approached by Dig + Fish and Brown Brothers to provide tents for a wild camping experience on the east coast of Tasmania. It was easy to say yes to the adventure since part of Jessie’s childhood was spent in Tasmania and we’re huge fans of Pinot Noir! The event, held…

By | Event Hire, Media

The Broadsheet NEXT Guide recently published an article entitled “Camping, But Not As You Know It” by Imogen Eveson. Happy Glamper popped up in the feature, along with some other great Australian glamping services. Take a look! Image: Elle DS Photography __________ Camping is synonymous with heavy packs, damp sleeping bags and baked beans over an open fire. Or at least, it was. Across the Australian countryside, clusters of bell tents are popping up with all the trimmings of a boutique hotel. With ceilings high enough to allow you to stand, these tents come fully furnished with luxury bedding, rugs…

Glamping at Flowerdale Estate

By | Bell Tents, Event Hire, Glamping Australia
We had so much fun creating a large bell tent village at the stunning Flowerdale Estate in Broadford! A total of 72 people stayed in a combination of 4m bell tents (two people per tent) and 5m bell tents (three to four people per tent). As this was a corporate booking (i.e. no couples or families) we provided king-single stretcher beds and created all-men and all-women tents. These tents were customised with colourful linen and decorative touches such as door bunting.
