There’s people who camp, and then there’s those who glamp. If you’re the latter, you’re most likely steering well away from the basics. Here’s our round-up of the six most lush glamping accessories to help you unleash your inner bohemian on your next adventure.
To earn the ultimate glamp stamp, you’ll have to get your hands on your own bell tent. You can either hire one through a local business, or invest in a pretty package yourself. Bell tents are not only super chic, they’re also ideal for our Aussie climate, and are quite literally a blank canvas that can be made magnificent with your own styling. This one from Breathe Bell Tents is 3m in diameter, and handily packs down into a canvas bag with shoulder straps for easy transport.

Chances are you’ll be lounging a lot, so make sure you’re doing so in comfort. Curl up with a book, sip on some vino or gaze up at the stars from your inflatable daybed. There’s even a cup holder for your brew of choice. We’re getting major afternoon nap vibes just looking at it. Take along a few cushions and a textured throw for the ultimate relaxation station.

Forget throwing your air mattress on the ground – elevate yourself to the elaborate glamping lifestyle with a comfy queen airbed. This luxurious pillow top number is pretty and practical. Its built-in pump inflates it in less than three minutes, so you’ll have more time for the important things – like sitting under the stars with a glass of red. For an extra chic factor, pack some high thread count linen sheets.

Make sure you book a powered site because you’re going to want your setting to shine. Use LED string lights to drape around your tent’s exterior, and to create a centre stage for your activities. Perfect for when you’re strumming the guitar for mates, or letting the kids entertain you with a performance under the lovely luminescence. An extra handy incorporation is weaving the lights around tent poles and ropes to guide your way at night.

You’ve got your bell tent, now you need the stove. Firstly, always check that you’re permitted to have open flames in your surroundings, and that you’ve ensured the fire can be contained in your setting. This handy – and rather handsome – stove is made to heat your bell tent, tipi, yurt or cabin, and is a clever little sidekick for those who want to leave no trace when camping. The stove’s top plate is perfect for cooking up a glamping feast, with plenty of room for at least two pots or pans.

It doesn’t matter whether you chopped the wood (because let’s face it, you picked it up at the servo on the way through), it’s how you carry it that matters. This log carrier is locally crafted from Australian-made 12 ounce water-repellent canvas and features leather straps made from aniline cow hide sourced from New Zealand. Perfect for your favourite glamping hipster.
