One… Camp Native American style with bison (pictured)
Believe it or not, but there’s an American bison farm on the NSW north coaast. Head for Aranyani Bison Adventure Park and camp in a Native American style teepee. These large teepees can fit up to a dozen. Besides the bison, the ranch has abundant native bird and animals. Enjoy spending your evenings around the campfire and your day exploring the farm.
Two… A yurt on the Murray River
Inspired by the traditional Mongolian yurt, Talo Retreat has transformed yurt accommodation into a luxurious couples-only experience on the mighty Murray River. From the canvas walls lined with Australian wood, to the domed skylight to allow stargazing from your bed and the private outdoor spa, this is a unique luxurious yurt experience.
Four… Adults-only treehouse
Shoot for the clouds in the canopy in the Blue Mountains known as Wollemi Wilderness Treehouse.With wall-to-wall windows, exposed native timber and perched on timber stilts, the Treehouse offers stunning views of Bowen’s Creek Gorge. This back-to-basics romantic escape includes a spa and wood fire.
Five… African safari in Dubbo
Dubbo might seem like an unlikely place to enjoy an African safari escape, but at Taronga Western Plains you can sleep in luxury safari tents on the edge of the African savannah. From your private deck you will see giraffe, zebra and eland as they roam.
