So you want to immerse yourself in the Tasmanian wilderness but the thought of creepy crawlies, deflating mattresses and dank pit loos don’t do it for you? We totally get it – not our cup of tea either! But that’s where glamping in Tasmania comes into play. Spend your time revelling in the best parts of nature without forgoing the little luxuries of a hotel. These top four glamping spots in Tasmania will deliver nature, comfort and elegance so you can really make the most of your time away.
