Into the Woods in Yackandandah

WITH THE TEMPERATURES RISING, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE RANDOM FLASH FLOODING/STORMS, IT’S ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO HEAD OUT OF MELBOURNE AND GO FOR A BIT OF AN ADVENTURE…

About 3 hours out of Melbourne, Yackandandah is a small town of about 1,000 people, located close to Albury Wodonga. This pretty village is historic and heritage protected and I’ll be honest, I’ve fallen very much in love with the place…

STAY

There is only one way to stay in Yackandandah and thats with Into the Woods Glamping. The perfect weekend getaway for couples, families or friends.

The Emperor Tent’s permanent home is in Yackandandah Holiday Park which is full of amenities such as bathroom, showers, kitchen, barbecue and wi-fi. Other than sustenance and the call of nature, you don’t really need to leave the tent as it’s filled with all the goods and to be honest we almost did just that on our first day there.

The tent comes with indoor and outdoor seating and when it’s time to get horizontal…sleep in the comfiest queen sized bed adorn with a mountain of cushions and pillows (FYI extra single beds can be facilitated if needed). 

Depending on the weather, there is a fan/heater and an electric blanket to maintain prime in-tent temperature. Entertainment wise there is a wifi, a wireless bluetooth speaker or if you’re on a technology hiatus, board games and magazines are also available at leisure.
