From campsites aimed at couples who are reluctant to forgo their morning cold-drip coffee, to holiday parks aimed at families with little ones to caravan parks that provide a base camp from which to explore the wilderness, here are the best places to camp or glamp in Noosa and surrounds.
The exotic bell and garden tents provided by Glamacamp lack nothing when it comes to drama. Call ahead and arrange for a deluxe version of the stunning tent to be set up in the garden of your best friend’s holiday house in Noosa and have it styled to suit the occasion. You can hire everything from a picnic basket with bone china and crystal stemware, to vintage sun chairs, BBQs and antique furniture. BYO Camilla Kaftan.
