Glamping, also known as “glamorous camping”, is such a huge trend right now all across the globe. Of course, this is no exception for travellers in Australia.

From adorable cottages to luxurious bell tents or adventurous tree houses, there really is an appeal for anyone. However, many folks are under the impression that glamping is only for the summer. Luckily, this form of travel can be enjoyed all year long -- if you find the right places.

Many property owners will install heaters or even fire places to their glampsites in order to run their accommodations year round. A cold winter night with a cozy blanket and cocoa does sound like quite the romantic evening. And at the added bonus of staying in a unique structure on a gorgeous property that is very instagrammable.

A huge part of glamping is the connection to the great outdoors. Some of the most beautiful landscapes are seen in winter, and this kind of accommodation is perfect to immerse yourself into nature!

Take a look below for some of the best glamping winter getaways for this season!

How better to immerse into nature -- aside from roughing it with typical camping -- than with a glass cabin.

Each of the three cabins also have a private jacuzzi to help keep the chill out!
