Riparide has just launched their latest getaway – a big ol’ bell tent on the outskirts of Byron Bay. BRB we’re running away for the weekend.

Pitched up in Yelgun on the Northern Rivers, ‘The Camp’, as it’s so aptly named, is absolutely surrounded by true blue Aussie bush, with Cabarita Beach just a 25 minute drive down the road. 

This Riparide escape is the definition of glamping. A huge canvas tent, a massive queen bed, and linen sheets. This is nicer than my actual house. But it’s just where you sleep.

There’s an additional solar-powered cabin with all your kitchen needs (hello there percolator), a hot shower and your daily dose of power, to charge up all your devices. There’s a lit fire pit for toasting marshmallows and making s’mores, which you’ll want to do every night as you watch the sunset over the surrounding ranges. 

What the heck are you waiting for? Get out there now! And take a hike while you’re at it.
