Glamp the Night Away

Gift this
Escaping the fast-paced city we headed to the coast, driving over the rolling green hills time felt like it had already started to slow. Situated just outside Wilsons Promontory National Park in Yanakie, the Lotus Belle Tent was pitched like no other — beautiful, spacious and packed with everything we needed for a weekend getaway.

Toasting our first night with a glass of sparkling, we soaked in the ocean views and watched the sun set over Corner Inlet. We fell asleep to the sounds of gentle waves and awoke to dappled light filling the tent, opening the door to a sunrise we’ll never forget. Our days were spent surfing, hiking and exploring as much of the surrounding National Park as possible, before heading back to unwind with a hot shower and a BBQ dinner under the stars.

The Lotus Belle Tent left us feeling rejuvenated and reconnected with nature, we drove home as two very happy glampers.
