Tranquil, unspoilt and now even more luxurious – leading Australian bush retreat Turon Gates has added six new riverside, self-catering glamping tents to its 6000-acre Blue Mountains property.

Solar-powered and sustainably-minded, the spacious new abodes feature sophisticated neutral-toned teak and canvas interiors within their 50 sqm spaces. Combining rustic quality with functionality, the finished result is a haven of simple yet stunning design.

Forget boring or bland camping. Ideal for adventuring in style, furnishings include a sumptuous four-poster bed plus daybed and lounge area, elegant contemporary bathroom (with a tempting bath for two), kitchenette with Nespresso coffee machine and even a Danish wood burner stove to keep cozy at night.

 The new tents are for relaxing – guests are invited to unwind with a welcome gift of local wine and honey, complimentary toiletries plus an an in-tent selection of magazines, books and board games.

Fully insulated, they also feature window coverings that unroll for extra breeze and views – the perfect recipe for a romantic night under the Turon stars.

Kirsten Lunoe of Turon Gates commented, “We are excited to bring couples’ glamping to the Blue Mountains and believe it will appeal to those looking for a unique experience within easy reach of Sydney.

“Our new glamping tents offer urban escapees a unique outdoor experience in an authentic bush setting. A scenic road trip of about three hours from Sydney immerses you in the great outdoors, where you’ll be sharing the ‘hood with kangaroos, wombats, platypus and echidnas.” 

“Our guests love that they can choose to go bush horse riding or have an in-tent massage. Bush walks, canoeing or just chilling out are also popular at Turon. If guests then want to venture out and explore local happenings, Katoomba, Mudgee, Bathurst and Lithgow are within easy reach, but the magic of Turon tends to stop the urge to venture elsewhere.” added Kirsten.
