The Best Glamping Spots in South East Queensland

Alice Duffield

There are a few down sides to camping – sandy tents, sharing toilets and showers, the time and energy that goes into the set up and pack down for just a couple of nights. Enter Glamorous camping! We’ve rounded up the best spots to head in South East Queensland so you don’t have to travel too far to get a perfecto ‘camping’ experience.

1. Ketchup's Bank Glamping, Boonah

If you’re after an eco experience, then Ketchup’s Bank is where you want to head. Experience the romance of camping under the stars, while being in total comfort of luxury tents. There’re heaps of wineries and restaurants not far from the camp site to keep you busy, and the owners at the site can suggest some brilliant local activities to be enjoyed.

2. nightfall camp - accommodation Lamington National Park, Lamington


Step back from the city buzz and truly absorb everything Lamington National Park and the Scenic Rim has to offer at Nightfall. Set by the beautiful and crystal clear waters of Christmas Creek and some lush rain forest, you can’t help but feel totally relaxed here. Staying in the luxurious safari tents will give you the total ‘back to nature’ experience without missing any of the luxuries of daily life. If you’re into organic eating, you’ll get some quality organic eats prepared for you here too.

3. NRMA Lake Somerset Holiday Park, Hazeldean


Lake Somerset Holiday Park includes several accomodation options for both roughing it and glamping. It’s just over one-and-a-half hours drive from Brisbane set on a serene 45 hectares. The glamping sites are situated right by the calm waters of the lake, so you wake up to a view like no other. The lake is perfect for water sport lovers; waterskiing, wake boarding and bass fishing are all common pastimes here. Unfortunately, the bathrooms and kitchen is a shared set-up (although you do have your own fridge), but the views and serenity make up for it.
