Just two and a half hours from Sydney, here is a wonderful place to escape for a honeymoon, wedding anniversary, birthday… or weekend of whimsy. Some of Australia’s best beaches are within easy reach and you sleep in highly original (in Australia) African safari tents deep in the bush.....

.... Paperbark Camp is an eco-lodge and a genuine attempt to protect this very Australian silvan environment: everything is done for the good of the forest. The food (served at the Gunyah, a large building raised to tree level) really is excellent, but also there is an exciting feeling of being somewhere unusual and special. As for those tents... they are spaced out in the woods, raised high above ground on stilts, with a deck at the front and a semi-outdoor shower, loo and basin at the back. This is camping but in great comfort. The dawn chorus, conducted by the mad kookaburras, is an unforgettable way to meet the day. There’s canoeing on the creek (just launch and go); walking trails in the bush; bird, dolphin and whale-watching; diving and swimming on the whitest sand beaches known to man… or idling down at the pub in Huskisson gazing out to sea.Paperbark is fully licensed. Ask about kids.[i/]
