Have one of these retro caravans towed to a camping ground of your choice. The other campers will hate you. THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN MAGAZINE, MARCH 4-5, 2017 HAPPY GLAMPER: RICK MORTON Full story featured here: The van demon It was on a camping trip that I discovered my friend’s father was something of a nudist, confirming a dormant belief that the great outdoors are only great if certain things remain indoors.

Adventure to Devil’s Corner, Tasmania

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 | No Comments

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!
