Best Glamping Spots in Queensland
Glamping has become popular in the last few years due to its combination of mixing modern luxury with stunning nature. It's a way to experience the wilderness and be surrounded by nature without having to sacrifice creature comforts that some of us can't live without.

The way we travel has changed, especially since the pandemic hit, and one trend involving the travel industry is that people don't want a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all type of travel vacation. People want choices. They want to explore new places, and they want to immerse themselves in culture and nature, not by just witnessing it by feeling like they are a part of it too.

It's no secret that Covid has simplified the way we want to live in a good way, and everything from the way we travel, to working from home, to how we are renovating our homes has been influenced by the new world we are living in today. This has even been reflected in colour trends.

The latest colour trend of the year for Taubman's paints 2021 is Brave Ground, a warm earthy tone, said to be inspired because people feel the need to be grounded, slow down and embrace the earth around them.

Whether it's a treehouse, a luxury tent, or a cabin in the wilderness, glamping is the idea of getting out amongst nature while still retaining a sense of luxury.
