Located two-and-a-half hours south of Sydney, Paperbark Camp is the glorious, eco-friendly glamping destination in the heart of idyllic Jervis Bay.

Inspired by their trips to Africa during the 80s, this beauty remains family-operated by Jeremy and Irena Hutchings. Having always been avid campers, these guys brought together the best of their trips to Africa and passion for the Australian bush and in turn, this brought about one of the most insane places to camp (or glamp, rather) in NSW.

Peppered across 100 hectares of beautiful bushland, Paperbark Camp has four different kinds of canvas safari tents (pending how all-out you want to go).  The Original Safari Tent has a wrap-around deck with outdoor furniture, solar panel lighting and even a private open-air ensuite bathroom with a hot shower. The Deluxe Safari means all that and a free-standing bath, and the Deluxe Plus Safari Tent includes a bath with a view and an additional sundeck with star gazing loungers.

If you want to really up the ante on your weekend away, hit the King Parrot Deluxe Safari Tent. It sports two king beds, outdoor lounges, an indoor ensuite with a double vanity and sunken bath and a separate outdoor bush shower.

The property also has some easy walking trails that track through mangrove forests (perfect for morning strolls and spotting kangaroos) and the option to hire out some mountain bikes. If you’re more of a water baby, rent a canoe and head to Huskinsson and back, stop off for a picnic and go for a swim on banks of the Carrumbene Creek.

If total relaxation is what you’re after, Paperbark also throws down some of the best massages and beauty treatments around (just make sure you book soon after you arrive so you don’t miss out).

At the centre of the camp, you’ll find The Gunyah (an Indigenous word meaning “meeting place”). The Gunyah is the site’s restaurant, bar, and communal chilling-out area and you could also head here even if you’re not actually staying at Paperbark.
