This month, the hard-working girls at the South Australian Tourism Commission sent us these classic images of SA’s newest one-star camping attraction: the brand new outdoor bathtub at Willangi Bush Escapes in Peterborough, 3.5hrs due north of Adelaide.
As far as back-to-basics “glamping” goes, we love the idea of an outdoor tub, protected from prying eyes by just a small stand of trees and a piece of corrugated iron fence. And could there be anything more romantic – or perhaps lonely – than taking a long, late-night soak under a billion stars? We think not.
