Love being amongst the natural beauty of the outdoors though would prefer to rest in comfort and style? Then why not go 'glamping' at one of Parks Victoria's Wilderness Retreats. Located within the Cape Conran Coastal Park, these luxe safari-style tents let you experience nature without having to compromise on creature comforts.
Set amidst stunning forests and fronting 60 kilometres of beach, Cape Conran offers 11,700 hectares of picturesque coastal reserve for you to explore. Wake up with a revitalising swim before deciding on the day's activities; you can explore the numerous trails of the Heathland Walk, the Cape Conran Nature Trail, the East Cape Boardwalk or the Yeerung River Estuary View and Gorge tracks at your leisure.

Let the sumptuous mattress and songs of nature lull you to sleep so that you're rested and ready for another day of discovery.
There's enough nature-oriented play around the park to keep everyone happy. Animal lovers will be pleased to find the surrounding rainforest and woodlands are home to a host of rare wildlife, including nectar-feeding birds, bandicoots and gliders. And, if you're lucky enough to spot them, dolphins and whales are known to surface just off the coast. Feeling adventurous? Try a lengthier hike at the magnificent Dock Inlet or Pearl Point. Cape Conran is also a popular spot for water-based fun such as diving, surfing, boating, fishing and rock pooling - so be sure to bring your bathers.
With wineries, breweries and farm-gates dotted along the trail to East Gippsland, you can gather up enough gourmet treats on your journey to indulge your entire stay. Take picnics of beautifully made local produce on your daily excursions or put together a delicious meal back at camp. A glass of Gippsland wine enjoyed on the balcony is the perfect way to end active days.
Set in the natural beauty of Victoria's Gippsland, you'll find Wilderness Retreats not only at Cape Conran but also at Wilsons Promontory and Buchan Caves. All Wilderness Retreats are eco-certified, offering environmentally, socially and economically sustainable accommodation.
