In regional Victoria, glamour and camping go together like, well, glamping. It's a celebrity-worthy union, the Brangelina and Kimye of outdoor adventure. Roll out the red carpet, we say. In remote wilderness, deep in bushland and by the ocean, you can experience the great outdoors with great comfort. It's the dreamy outdoor escape without the nightmare of setting up camp. It's environmentally friendly too, letting you love nature two-fold.
