Just an hour and a half north of Brisbane, Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is an easy and oh so lovely getaway from city life.

While there are lots of camping spots where you can pitch a tent and create your own romantic glamping space, there are already some great options set up for you to make your Sunshine Coast glamping retreat easy, breezy and beautiful.

Here are the best ways to stay.

Starry Nights Luxury Camping, Woombye

In the tranquil forests of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Starry Nights Luxury Camping has two huge safari tents that can each sleep up to five guests at a time, or create a romantic escape for two.

Built on recycled barn floorboards with king-size beds, freestanding bathtubs, and roaring wood fires, the tents have more than 75sqm of floor space to call home and are positioned in a way that they feel like they’re the only tent on the block.

Each tent has a kitchenette with two fridges and a microwave, the bathroom area includes a flushing toilet and rain head shower, and to make powering your devices nice and easy there are USB chargers along with power points.

The owners have a focus on sustainability and as well as providing organic products and using solar power for most of the tents’ needs they’ve also established a Vegetation Protection Covenant over a third of the property to protect the rainforest for years to come. Which makes lying back in that bathub and watching butterflies go by as you listen to the sound of Petrie Creek all the sweeter.

Habitat Noosa Everglades Eco Camp, Cootharaba

In the Great Sandy National Park on the banks of Lake Cootharaba, Habitat Noosa Everglades Eco Camp offers two ways to get your glamp on.

Their Wilderness Safari Tents are a relatively simple tent for up to six guests that’s nice and close to the bistro and camp kitchen. While the Paperbark Glamping tents sleep up to four and have their own private bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities, bar fridge, and bedside tables and drawers.

At the Paperbark Glamping tents you can also sit back on your deck and watch the local Grey Kangaroos chilling out on the lawn in the afternoon.

This Sunshine Coast glamping getaway also has its very own micro eco brewery, CootharaBAR where preservative-free beers are made from water that has been filtered through sand and gravel for over 75 years. Try one of their 11 artesian beers in the bar and bistro where you can also enjoy local Sunshine Coast fare for breakfast lunch and dinner seven days a week.

Ingenia Rivershore Resort, Maroochydore

Beside the Maroochy River, just over 5km from the Sunshine Coast town of Maroochydore, the Ingenia Rivershore Resort has King Safari Tents for up to four people, and Family Safari tents for up to six, that are so big and beautiful if it wasn’t for those draping ceilings it would be easy to forget you’re in a tent.

All of the Safari Tents feature four-poster beds, claw foot freestanding bathtubs and roomy showers stocked with Appelles products, a kitchenette with a full-size fridge, and flat-screen TVs to lie back and watch a movie at the end of the day.

Each tent has a seating area overlooking the riverbank, and guests are invited to make the most of the parks’ facilities including a swimming pool with a waterslide, mini golf and a children’s playground. You can also hire kayaks and stand up paddleboards to take out into the river.

Kanimbia Luxury Glamping, Obi Obi

Kanimbia means Hidden Valley and in this peaceful corner of the Obi Obi Valley it’s easy to see where this Sunshine Coast glamping property gets its name.

The Kanimbia Luxury Glamping may make it hard to choose between their safari tents and tipis. On the one hand the 72sqm safari tents have queen-sized beds, claw-foot baths, antique vanities and other carefully selected furnishings, along with full cooking facilities inside and a BBQ and fire pit outside.

On the other, the tipis have their own romantic charm along with quality linens on queen size beds, romantic lighting and soft furnishings.

Either way you’ll be able to wander through native bushland, keep an eye out for shy wallabies and wake up to the sounds of native birdlife while having a total reset from modern life.
