How would you like to camp out? The very idea of the Nightfall Wilderness Camp, Queensland, Australia sounds like paradise. It is a naturalist escape location, with crystal-clear rapids and ancient Lamington National Park rainforests. However, inside your tent, you can expect a fire place, vintage tin-bath, rain head shower, and hand basin made of rock. The king-sized bed has high-quality cotton sheets, woollen quilt.

In a large and relatively untouched pocket of forest at Lamington, Queensland, Nightfall’s luxury tents sit delicately beside the crystal-clear tumbling headwaters of Christmas Creek and Queensland’s ancient Lamington National Park rainforests. The Nightfall ‘glamping’ (luxury camping) experience steps away from the excess and complications of modern life, redefining luxury through architect-inspired, hand-built, permanent safari tents; sumptuous home-cooked organic food and the relaxed feeling of staying with old friends.

Balance and rejuvenation flow easily in the pared-back surrounds, the pure fresh air and the tranquility of the forest. Heart, body, and spirit are nurtured through a tonic of immersion in nature, evocative nights under-the-stars and the intimacy of private luxury tent accommodation complete with twin bathtubs and a rotating fireplace. Nightfall is limited to only 8 guests at any one time, ensuring privacy, intimacy plus peace and quiet. Couples relish the seclusion of their private tents.

At the close of the day, Nightfall’s unique glamping venue comes alive with new sensory experiences. Pre-dinner drinks are followed by delicious organic meals served under the stars or beside the campfire, a rare and unique dining experience, in a different setting for each meal of the day.

The organic food is prepared by your hosts with a focus on simple flavour combinations and high quality seasonal ingredients.

Your evening meals are cooked in a custom-built wood-fired oven to further enhance your bespoke experience. Nightfall does not offer a menu, instead, guest’s likes and dislikes are taken into account to craft a meal.

Produce is sourced from the Nightfall kitchen garden, wild harvested from Australian bush tucker plants (a bush-tucker orchard has been created in the grounds of Nightfall), the local farms of Scenic Rim and organic markets in Brisbane.

Finally, enjoy watching the stars and the animal and plant life with a few drinks to relax you? Sample the gourmet mini-bar and live like an artist in the wilderness.

Whereas most hotels only recycle and call themselves eco-friendly, the Nightfall Wilderness Camp is nature-first in all of its amenities. It protects natural wildlife and helps rare plants to thrive. Its landscape is a conservation project and it’s the kind of soulful, meditative vacation that will create many happy memories with your friends and family.

If visiting Australia, this is a “must do” experience.
