Wandagar Eco Tent, Pemberton
Designed to disengage from the stresses of modern life, Wandagar Eco Tent provides an off-grid getaway that doesn’t compromise on comfort. The accommodation has no Wi-Fi, tv or charging outlets, so you can settle in (amongst the European linen and cashmere throws) and finally read that book you’ve been meaning to get to. For keen hikers and mountain bikers, the eco tent is close by to the Bibbulum and Munda Bibbi tracks and isn’t far from the Southern Forrest.

Luxe Farm Stay, Margaret River
This Busselton glamping spot is perfect if you’re looking for luxury not too far from the top Margaret River attractions.

The accommodation also has a barbecue, electric fireplace, portable air-con and strong mobile reception for comfort.

Wild Goose Camping, South West
With a design based on WWI army tents, Wild Goose’s 4m and 5m bell tents sleep up to 3 and 5 people respectively, with a single pole in the middle to hold everything up. Run by husband and wife team Chloe and Clint, unlike the other sites mentioned here, they do not have permanent structures assembled, and set up at sites across Margaret River based on your booking.
You can check in here to see what locations they’ll set up at, but Chloe hinted that the sites at the National Parks are the best ones, with the site at Jarrahdene positioned under Karri trees near an old saw mill for a truly rustic camping experience. Situated along Caves Road, the site at Conto Springs is right by the region’s many caves, including Jewel Cave and Lake Cave. And, if you’re really looking to go off the grid, you’re in luck!

Olio Bello Lakeside Glamping, Cowaramup
Housing six luxurious safari-style bungalows nestled beside a lake, and surrounded by 8000 olive trees, Olio Bello Lakeside Glamping offers both a relaxing and immersive experience. It’s harvest season for olives, so for the olive oil connoisseurs out there, it’s a rare opportunity to taste award-winning oil pressed onsite.
What truly makes Olio Bello different is that guests are able to wander freely through the olive grove, just as you would in Italy. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about organic farming, sample handmade gourmet produce and watch the sunset as it sweeps over the lake.
Each bungalow boasts a private en-suite, kitchenette, spacious viewing deck and bespoke interiors, with every guest receiving a special welcome gift on arrival, plus a gourmet breakfast hamper. With the chillier weather approaching, you’ll be kept cosy with indoor fires at each bungalow.
Minutes from wineries such as Vasse Felix and Cullen Wines, and just a stone’s throw away from pristine beaches at Gracetown, you’ll be well-situated to take advantage of everything the region has to offer. They also have an onsite café and shop where you can tuck into a delicious lunch and stock up on organic beauty products, so you don’t even have to leave the property to enjoy a range of experiences.

Mile End Glamping, Yelverton
Closer to Dunsborough, Mile End Glamping is the only glampsite in the state to feature their unique dome shape design. Their self-contained studio domes accommodate two people and are elevated off the ground to offer an incredible vantage point out over the valley.
Owner Caroline felt that the dome was the best option for the environment at the property, as they are easy to regulate temperature-wise, and have been architecturally designed using patterns found in nature. The design maximises natural light and creates closeness with the outside world.
Kept intimate with only 2 domes currently onsite, they do book up quickly. Whilst they are currently booked for the next couple of months, Caroline said that they regularly post vacancies on their Facebook page, so stay tuned. If you are lucky enough to get a spot, you can book here.
