Five Star kids Travel and Lifestyle

By | Bell Tents, Birthday Glamping, Camping Mornington Peninsula, Event Hire, Glamping Australia, Glamping Mornington Peninsula, Glamping Victoria, Lotus Belle tent, Media, Mornington Peninsula

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…

“The van demon” – Weekend Australian airstream feature

By | Airstream, Glamping Australia, Glamping Mornington Peninsula, Media, Mornington Peninsula
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. To catalogue the things camping has ruined for me – among them board games, summer, relationships – would take too long. Until recently, I hadn’t slept in the great...

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…
