A pop-up glamping experience has arrived in Port Macquarie
With Easter just around the corner you might be considering arranging a getaway with the family. If camping’s an option but you’re not keen on losing all your creature comforts, perhaps a glamping adventure is more your style?
If we’ve got you interested then Port Macquarie is your destination.
Popping up over the Easter and Autumn school holidays, the NRMA Port Macquarie Breakwall Holiday Park will be launching their brand-new glamping experience that offers families the chance to enjoy a taste of the great outdoors with a touch of luxe.
Recently awarded a Gold medal in the 2019 NSW Tourism Awards, the beautifully landscaped waterfront property is located only a leisurely stroll away from the Port Macquarie town centre, making for easy access to an array of restaurants, bars, and cafes. The park also doubles as the gateway to Port Macquarie’s coastal walkways which have you weaving along the Hastings River and stunning coastline, along the way discovering beautiful beaches and quirky cafes.
Back to the Glamping, so what is it exactly? and what you can expect from these fancy tents?
Glamping is all about combing all the things you love about a hotel room with the adventure of camping in the outdoors. Situated close to the park’s resort pool, kids club and camp kitchen the tents allow you to focus on the important things, like relaxing and spending quality time with the family.
What’s included in your Glamping tent?
Each tent offers a large, open plan space to accommodate a family, with all the creature comforts you’d expect including a queen sized bed and two single beds made up with supplied fresh linen. Guests can soak up nature and sleep under the stars in one of thebeautifully appointed bell tents that accommodate up to four people.
Complemented by an elegant décor of indoor plants, romantic fairy lights and cosy rugs, the bell tents offer the ultimate in glamping with additional luxury touches such as eye masks, earplugs and deck chairs to relax on outside while enjoying the beautiful surrounds.
