Why camp when you can glamp?
Glamping, camping’s more sophisticated sister, is well known around the world for offering an accommodation alternative that falls somewhere between a plush hotel and a tent in the bush. Finding glamping sites hasn’t always been that easy though, as small glamping businesses with correspondingly small advertising budgets weren’t always able to get the word out.
Glamping Hub has solved that problem, providing an online space where glamping site owners can list their accommodation. We interview Jessica Armstrong from Glamping Hub Australia to learn more.
We have many accommodations on our site listed for yoga retreats, outdoor adventures, dude ranches, safaris on wild reserves, and more.
GAB: Hi Jessica, what’s the story behind Glamping Hub?

Can you tell us a bit about the concept?
Glamping, a combination of glamour and camping, is the ability to be within a close proximity to nature, whilst being able to stay in a luxury accommodations with the amenities and features one might find in a setting like their everyday home to a five-star hotel. It is the ability to sit around a campfire in the forest while having a king-size bed to sleep in; the ability to experience the awes of nature and the wilderness, while fulfilling your childhood dreams of living in a tree house. With over 27 different types of accommodations to choose from including safari tents, tree houses, Airstreams, yurts, and more, there is a destination and adventure for every person, and now even your pet. Glamping is about the experience of the outdoors without forfeiting your comfort zones and takes the roughin’ it out of camping.
