Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and indulge in a rejuvenating getaway surrounded by nature. It’s time to unplug, unwind, and reconnect with the simple joys of life with your furry bestie, all in the comfort of your very own dog-friendly glamping tent.
With several luxurious options across Australia, you’ll have everything you need and more for the experience of your life.
Jiliby Creek Glamping
Just a 90-minute drive from Sydney, Jiliby Creek Glamping Tent is a dog-friendly glamping site that aims to have minimal impact on the surrounding environment. The tent’s strong canvas exterior protects occupants from all weather conditions, so don’t be afraid to book in advance.
Inside the tent, you’ll find a comfortable queen bed, power, lights, device charging, and cooling fans. There’s a private outdoor deck area equipped with a shady umbrella, luxury day bed and hammock where you can bask in the sun all day.
Bathrooms, shower facilities, kitchenette, BBQ equipment and the firepit are amenities that are shared between guests of the other accommodations of the property. And, if you need to check your emails, there’s wifi available throughout the property, including inside the tent.
Pups need to be kept on a leash as wildlife and other guests are around. The property has unfenced access to Jiliby Creek, so make sure you keep a close eye on Fido.
If the Jiliby Creek Glamping Tent is unavailable on your preferred dates, try booking Redwood Glamping Tent! Both tents are located on the same property, so you’ll get a similar experience.
Or, swap out the tent for The Burrow Glamping Dome, where you can enjoy panoramic views from the comfort of your cosy bed.Location: Lemon Tree, NSW 2259

With plenty of swimming holes and walking trails close by, you can connect with nature without feeling the urge to check your phone. There’s also no mobile phone reception in the valley, so you can unplug and enjoy your time off with your furry bestie.
Pups aren’t allowed on the furniture, so make sure you pack bedding, feeding bowls and any other essentials.

As most glamping sites are on working farms or in rural areas home to cattle and Australian wildlife, many cannot accommodate pets. If you’re looking for other options to unwind in nature, check out the best dog-friendly caravan parks in Australia.
