Top 5 glamping essentials from NRMA Parks and Resorts

Category: Inspiration, News, Date: 29 September 2022

There’s nothing better than taking something like camping and making it glamorous. That’s where glamping comes in. Whether you’re looking for something a little more comfortable for your outdoor vacation or some perfect pics for Instagram, it’s the way to go. Here are 5 absolute musts for your glamping getaway.

1. Food and drinks

Stocking the larder for your stay is important, but it’s also delicious. Yes, there’s always the lollies and chocolates, but sometimes you need the basics. A good glamping grocery list includes:

  • Steaks and sausages for the barbecue
  • A loaf of fresh bread with sandwich fixings
  • Plenty of fruit and veg
  • Instant coffee and teabags
  • Cheese, crackers, olives and cold meats (because it’s not really a glamping getaway without the full picnic spread)

Glamping hot spot: Victor Harbor

Get into a whole world of comfort at NRMA Victor Harbor Beachfront Holiday Park. Snuggle up by the fire in one of the brand new glamping safari tents on a cold night, head out to the verandah to cook up a meal on the barbecue, and there are accessible options available. Enjoy your stay, the right way.

2. Cooking accessories

If you’re looking to cook up a storm on your glamping getaway, don’t forget to pack your cooking accessories. These include:

  • Kitchen/BBQ utensils
  • Plates, drinking cups and cutlery
  • Your favourite mug

Glamping hot spot: Woodgate Beach

You’ll love the chic safari tents at NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park. Surrounded by 9 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, this park enjoys 16km of sweeping coastline and 23,000 hectares of national park in its backyard. The park’s rustic safari tents are so close to the sea you can hear the waves lapping at the shore, and even see glimpses of water glistening from your balcony. Woodgate Beach is a beachside paradise that offers the ultimate secluded escape, ideal for both couples and families alike.

3. Outdoor essentials

Whether it’s glamping or camping, keeping hydrated and sun protected while outdoors is paramount. Regardless of weather and activity, it’s important to look after yourself with the following essentials:

  • A hat (preferably one that matches your outfit)
  • Sunscreen
  • A water bottle or thermos if you’re fancy
  • Mosquito repellent

Sun safety tip: Wear a brimmed hat, they shade your face, ears, and the back of your neck. If you wear a baseball cap, make sure to protect your ears and the back of your neck by wearing clothing or applying sunscreen that covers those areas.

Glamping hot spot: Merimbula Beach

NRMA Merimbula Beach Holiday Resort is a holiday hot spot that boasts luxury safari tents with some of the most spectacular sea views imaginable. There’s a relaxing outdoor bath for those long and drawn-out lazy afternoons and an inside electric fireplace to curl up by with a good book and a warm cuppa.  Enjoy a scrumptious meal in the dining area or cook up a storm on your private BBQ, served up on your very own outdoor breakfast bar.

4. Non-digital entertainment

Camping is about disconnecting from your phone and reconnecting with nature. It’s a bit hard to do that if your only way of having some fun is to load up Netflix on your laptop. But here are some ideas for group and solo fun on your trip:

  • Board games
  • Puzzles
  • A good book
  • Painting
  • A disposable camera (have a blast snapping pics without checking if the photos are Insta-worthy)

Glamping hot spot: Port Arthur

Enjoy Tasmania as it should be at NRMA Port Arthur Holiday Park. Settle in with a glass of whatever you enjoy drinking in the outdoor bath, hold a barbecue outside with some amazing bush views, or cozy up by the fireplace after a long day out. Enjoy glamping in its most traditional form at Port Arthur.

5. A sense of adventure

Finally, we come to the reason for your holiday in the first place. Glamping makes camping extra pleasant, but at the end of the day, it’s a home base for you to go out and explore the local attractions. Enjoy your morning coffee, unwind after dinner, but use the day to really get out there and go.

Glamping hot spot: Umina Beach

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, the first of its kind in the whole of Australia.

So, what are you waiting for? Go out, explore the world, and come back at the end of the day to luxurious comfort.
