Canberra’s ultimate outdoor sleepovers

Canberra’s ultimate outdoor sleepovers

Swap five-star for more than five million stars with Canberra's ultimate outdoor sleepovers.

From glamping to traditional camping, here’s our top four ways to spend a night in the stunning surrounds of the Territory’s great outdoors.

  1. Glamping in a vineyard

    Nestled above Mount Majura Vineyard, sits a bell tent with incredible views. Offering luxury glamping, this cubby is a place to hideaway, disconnect from reality and reconnect with the important things... like wine.

    Stocked with books, board games and picnic supplies, Naked Cubby Co is the perfect spot to unwind and enjoy your natural surroundings.

  2. Rustic cottage at Tidbinbilla

    If you are not a fan of tents but still want to get away from it all, then Nil Desperandum is the cottage for you. With the mountains of Tidbinbilla as a picturesque backdrop, this spot is perfect for groups and ideal for those who want a base for bushwalking, bird watching, stargazing or just relaxing.

    You will need to bring your own sleeping bag and food. The historic rammed earth cottage has three rooms, toilet facilities, running water, solar lighting, a fire pit, and a barbecue – but no electricity – all from a very reasonable $184 per night.

  3. Camping with city benefits

    Located just 10 minutes from the city centre and offering a wide range of amenities, Canberra Tourist Park has everything you need for a convenient campervan or camping escape. Choose from a combination of drive-through, back in, and grass sites, as well as 7 'Big Rig' sites. With all sites featuring power and water, there's also a modern camp kitchen, laundry and free WiFi access for guests. 

    Exhibition Park – Canberra’s showground area – boasts the only pet-friendly camping in Canberra and offers stays of up to 28 days. With a range of powered and non-powered sites available including large drive-through sites, grey and black water dump points, campground accessibility has never been easier.

    Exhibition Park is also home to the popular Capital Region Farmers Market, ideal for stocking up on local produce. Just an eight minute drive from the city centre, convenience is enhanced with public transport from the main gate to take you directly to the capital's top attractions.

  4. Campgrounds around the capital

    Take your pick from the many campsites surrounding the capital including Woods Reserve, north of Gungahlin on the Centenary Trail, Kowen Forest, and the Cotter Reserve. Explore your options on the Parks and Conservation website and then book your spot online.
