Glamping Amongst the Trees

Gift this
Off on a best friend adventure, we turned right onto Sunny Creek Rd and watched as the landscapes transformed from Australian bush to a tropical rainforest. Mirador Springs greeted us with a secluded Bedouin bell tent sitting amongst the trees.

Set high on the Strzelecki Ranges overlooking Mt Baw Baw we were instantly immersed in the tranquil atmosphere and the dancing butterflies. This boho glamping tent is decked out with a queen bed, plush robes, electric blanket, heating, fridge, coffee machine and a private outdoor BBQ area making for a spectacular romantic retreat or BFF getaway with all the zen vibes.

With 15 acres of botanical gardens and winding paths, we spent our days in this enchanted labyrinth exploring the many stunning sceneries, painting away the afternoon and enjoying a picnic by the natural spring. We picked apples from the orchard for the three cheeky donkeys who stole my heart; Billy, Blossom and Mumma Bear, and for Bella the goat, well she likes bread.

By sunset, we treated ourselves to the most magical free-standing bath, tucked in a private glasshouse, then rugged up in robes and fell asleep to rustle of nature. Completely isolated, Mirador Springs was an unforgettable hidden paradise.
