What is 'Glamping'?

Glamping is the fusion of the words 'glamorous' and 'camping'. It's all about enjoying the experience of camping in a tent, with added comfort and without the hassle. The tents are already set-up, styled and waiting for you when you arrive. At Tamworth Country Music Festival (TCMF), they are even cooled to a comfortable temperature with air-conditioning included in the Glamping bell style tents.

Why Glamp at TCMF?

If you have ever been camping, you will know all about the amount of gear required to be able to camp in semi-comfort. Not only do you have to purchase all of this gear, you then need to become a master of some serious game of Tetris to fit it all in your car boot, trailer, pod and/ or roof racks. Once you arrive to your campsite, you need to remain calm and be extraordinarily diplomatic with the wife while she tells you how to put the tent up. Usually in a hurry as you are trying to set up before the sunsets, the rain comes, or so you don't miss out on one of the main acts that is about to play in Toyota Park. 

Glamping allows you to enjoy the atmosphere and experience of camping, without the hassle. When you arrive to the campsite your tent is already set-up and waiting for you. The bed is made, the camping chairs are set-up, with lamps on the bedside tables. Even the air-conditioning is turned on in anticipation of your arrival. And when it is time to depart, you just pack your bags into the car and leave the tent as is.

Where are the tents located?

Whilst it is possible (yet unlikely) for the Wallaroo Campsite to change locations each year, in 2020 the Wallaroo Campsite (including the glamping tents) were set-up in Cross Park. Cross Park is located on the corner of Gipps Street and Solander Drive in West Tamworth. 

This incredibly convenient location is the cherry on the pie for the TCMF glamping experience. The tents were set-up within easy walking distance to the main stage at Toyota Park, Toyota Fan Zone, the Family Zone, the Tamworth Regional Playground and Hopscotch Restaurant. Tamworth's main street - Peel St is only a short stroll away, where you will find scores of buskers and free entertainment during each day and night throughout the festival.

What is included in the Glamping package?

The Glamping package includes the complete set-up and pack-down of the bell tent, mattresses, all linen and bedding, camping chairs, stylish decor, bedside tables with lanterns, padlocks for added security and air-conditioning. There are amenities at the campsite including showers with hot and cold water, and a communal area with camp kitchen facilities and drinking water available. There are other options and packages available to suit your individual needs, including the 'Nomad' and 'Tent Village' packages. Check out Wallaroo Camping Hire's website HERE for more details.
