Go glamping with star gazing, nature walks, and wildlife spotting, followed by grazing on local produce and wine (and just a super quick drive away).
Based at the International Bird Sanctuary just north of Adelaide, a new overnight glamping adventure will launch in January 2019, run by local travel company PureSA.
It will be the first time people will be able to camp in the national park, with guests spending the night under the stars in 4-metre bell tents decked out with rustic decorations. Guests get to explore the national park with bird watching and possible dolphin spotting, followed by star gazing and feasting on some of the best produce from South Australia.
The tour will include all meals, most likely a light picnic lunch and a more gourmet dinner, teamed up with local wines.
“We’re going to try and work with a lot of local operators and maybe local caterers, and really supporting the local economy,” says PureSA’s Shavojn Read.
“We also want to educate people about conservation – we think that’s really important especially going into a national park because some of the species are endangered. And honouring the indigenous history of the area is really important to us too.”
PureSA will release the tour dates later this year, with the first tour expected to run in January. The glamping adventures will run once a month with a maximum of 12 people to keep things nice and intimate, and they will also be open to private bookings. Tours are expected to be held from September to March, when the rare migrational birds can be spotted in the sanctuary.
