Glamping – it's the art of glamorous camping where instead of sleeping on the ground, there's a bed. And instead of sitting around a campfire, there are comfy chairs and sometimes even a bathroom. Yes, IN YOUR TENT.

If this sounds right up your alley, then take a peek at the Aussie glamping options on Airbnb and other booking sites.

Located at the rear of a 30-acre property, this bell tent is surrounded by European trees and native wildlife.

Tanjenong Farmstay Glamping - Bila

Where is it? Taralga, NSW

Set yourself up for a bohemian stay with all the trimmings at this Tanjenong farmstay.

In addition to a tent with a lush bed and views of the southern end of the Great Dividing Range, you'll also receive firewood to start up a fire pit and crockery and cutlery to eat your meals off.

Those bringing a little one can rest easy knowing the tent is large enough to squeeze in another single bed. They're bound to have a ball here, particularly as it's home to a family of alpacas that constantly roam the campgrounds.
