Category: Inspiration, News, Date: 21 November 2023

When it comes to Glamping in NSW, NRMA Parks and Resorts have you covered. From Glamtainers and Safari Tents – we have a number of incredible and unique glamping experiences to choose from in a range of idyllic locations along the East Coast of NSW. The hardest part will be choosing which one to pick. So to make life easier, we’ve compiled a list to uncover which of these 9 incredible NSW glamping experiences is right for you.

1. Central Coast, NSW

Glamtainers – A glamping experience like you’ve never seen before.

When it comes to glamping, we typically think of luxury style tents with pillows and Indian print rugs scattered all over the floor, but at NRMA Ocean Beach Holiday Resort in Umina Beach on the NSW Central Coast,  things are done a little bit… differently. Introducing the glamtainer (a.k.a – glamping container), the first of it’s kind in the whole of Australia. These luxury shipping containers are decked out with more than just the basics, they include all the comforts of a hotel, including:

  • Air-conditioning
  • A super comfortable queen bed and double bed or two single beds
  • A cosy seating area with a TV
  • Indoor dining
  • Kitchenette with a bar fridge to store your refreshments
  • Well appointed bathroom
  • An outdoor deck complete with BBQ and dining area

The glamtainers come in two sizes depending on your family’s needs. There’s the open plan option, offering a light-filled and free flowing space great for family socialising. Or there’s the 2-bedroom option,  perfect for families or friends that like to retreat to their own space for some peace and quiet.

And if that isn’t enough to satisfy your needs, your glamping container is in prime position within the resort, located just meters away from Umina Beach and close by to all the amazing in-resort facilities on offer.
