Luxury Swag Camp :: Blue Mouintains


I know it is quite cold at the moment but I have been camping quite a bit recently, but nothing quite as glamourous as this 'swag camp' from Blue Mountains Private Safaris Luxury Swag Camp.
This camp is also an ideal model for Eco Tourism with no very basic infrastructure. There is no electricity, all water is filtered, all waste is removed from site and no fixed structures for minimal impact.

The camp is built to fit in with the surrounding environment, with raised timber 'swag' decks, with swag bedrolls, soft pillows and duvets for added comfort and a canopy overhead which you can roll back to see the stars.
 
Backing on to each deck there is an 'en-suite' hand basin and mirror plus an open air shower, chemical toilet and screened changing area.
There is also an outdoor fireplace set up to look like something you would find in your own home!

There is no formal restaurant but instead your guide will provide all meals in an outdoor dining area shaded by canopy poles with great views of the mountains and river below. 

This is the best experience if you want to try luxury bush swag camping and feel at one with nature but not give up on those creature comforts.

Have a great weekend.

  1. Apart from the fact that it is SO cold in Melbourne right now that I am about to light the log fire, so it is hard to even IMAGINE sleeping in the open air, this place is absolutely something else.

    Was thinking a trip may be nice in the upcoming school holidays...this may just be the ticket....

    have a wonderful weekend! Virginia x
