Stargazing sets the tone for romance and Discovery Parks sets the tone for glamping.
Make time for the great outdoors and each other this Valentine’s Day with a glamping getaway at Discovery Parks.
Want to get close to nature but aren’t a “roughing it” kind of person? Looking for a camping experience without the creepy crawlies? Glamping might just be the perfect holiday option for you! Glamping - “glamourous camping" - is a style of camping that includes the luxuries of hotel accommodation alongside the adventure of outdoor camping.
So, leave the sleeping bag at home and escape to Discovery Parks, we have the high thread count camping option for you – glamping safari tents. Tuck yourself into one of our safari tents for a camping experience with all the comforts of home while enjoying the fresh air and star-gazing from your campsite.
You won’t need to “set up camp”, we’ve done all the heavy lifting. Our open-plan safari tents are elevated off the ground, have a solid floor and accommodate sleeping arrangements for 2 to 6 people with queen bed and single bunk configurations. Amenities include kitchenette with fridge and microwave, ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet, sofa, TV, air-conditioning and deck with outdoor seating and BBQ*
With glamping sites all around Australia, we guarantee you’ll fall in love. Gaze into each other’s eyes while sleeping (almost) under the stars at these locations.
*We recommend checking individual locations before booking your stay for exact accommodation specifications
A rich landscape of vineyards, restaurant menus filled with local produce and a chocolate shop – sounds like the perfect recipe for a romantic getaway in the Barossa Valley.

There’s also access to a shared area with outdoor lounge, BBQ, fire pit, and heated swimming pool/spa. And, the best bit, it’s an adults-only zone so no kids allowed. Lock in a babysitter and book that romantic getaway for two at Discovery Parks- Barossa Valley. We guarantee you’ll leave re-connected and more loved-up than when you arrived.
Isn’t a sunrise the height of romance? Why not enjoy a morning stroll with picnic to the lighthouse at Cape Byron, the first spot to wake up to the sun each morning in Australia. This will no doubt set an amorous tone for your Byron Bay escape, so maintain the charm with a stay at Discovery Parks – Byron Bay in a Deluxe Safari Tent for 2. Spoil your valentine by preparing a home-cooked dinner at the end of the day on the tent’s deck complete with BBQ. There’ll be no need for candles, as you’ll be basking in starlight.
Have the grandparents hit the road on their big lap and left you without a babysitter? No problems! We have room for the whole family with 4-person and 6-person safari tents as well. It’ll be a cosy stay in our open plan tent with mum & dad in the queen bed and the kids settling into the single bunks.
Your sweetheart might flinch in the dark of night and cuddle closer when they hear the passionate roar of the lions from Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Just a two-minute drive from Discovery Parks – Dubbo, the king of the jungle can often be heard in the distance from the comfort of your queen bed in a Deluxe Safari Tent for 2 people. Once you’ve finished spending time lovingly gazing into each other’s eyes over a BBQ meal on the deck of your tent, spend time staring at the stars with a 90-minute tour of the Milky Way Galaxy at The Dubbo Observatory.
Our holiday park also offers family glamping options with an Economy Tent sleeping 4 and Deluxe Safari tent Sleeping 6. With so many people in an open plan space, there’s no need to worry about getting all hot and bothered, our safari tents are air-conditioned.
It’s all sunshine, lollipops and rainbows every day in sunny Queensland. There’ll be no bugs, only love bugs, with a stay in our new glamping tents at Discovery Parks – Fraser St, Hervey Bay. These tents are specifically designed with families in mind featuring a queen bed and single bunks. It’s the perfect setting to enjoy the sunset on a balmy evening from your private balcony over-looking the lake. But, mum and dad, don’t get to lovey-dovey in front of the kids, it’ll make them want to puke – YUCK!
Beach proposals are the best and Harrington Beach is a great location to surprise your loved one with a diamond that could rival the region’s natural beauty.

Celebrate your mushy moment at Discovery Parks – Harrington Beach and stay in your love bubble, aka Standard Safari Tent, with a cheese platter, bottle of champers and soppy rom-com DVD on the TV.
If you haven’t heard about this glamping resort, have you been living on an island?! This is Discovery Park’s first location with only safari tent accommodation and, the first accommodation development on the island in over 30 years.
Truly, madly, deeply impress your plus one with a Deluxe Dune Tent stay – the largest and most beautifully furnished tents for the couple seeking a premium experience. Sip a Pinky’s Beach Club signature cocktail on your private balcony while overlooking iconic Pinky’s Beach and watching the sunset over the dunes.
But, if you have a few more than just a plus one, a Superior Family Tent which sleeps up to 4 people will take the stress out of family camping with resort facilities including a pool and food & beverage service. Watch the kids try to capture a tender moment with a quokka. These marsupials are very cheeky and extremely welcoming so, if you’re lucky, your quokka selfie might just include a little kiss on the cheek.
