The next stop on our Big Aussie Adventure is THE CAMP EARTH. We were not sure what to expect when we found out that this was a single tent camp-site entirely off the grid but in the interest of intrepid exploring we ventured forth regardless!
The Camp Earth is located in Yelgin, which was only about a 30 minute drive from Byron Bay. The owners of the airbnb were super helpful and friendly (we didn’t meet them, just chatted over the phone) and they provided us with all the information we needed to arrive in this quite rural plot easily.
The property consists of the tent and a secondary cabin. Both have electricity, however only the cabin has a plug point, so if you need to charge anything, the cabin is the place. I found the fact that the tent only had light (and no power sockets) quite refreshing, it almost “forced” us to enjoy the nature rather than be tied to our devices.
The tent itself was great. Organic linens, a queensize bed, dedicated chill-zone with both sunrise and sunset views on the decking area. I would highly recommend waking up early enough to be able to watch the sunrise, it was really magical to hear nothing but nature as it came up.
Staying at The Camp Earth cost us $219 for the night (seasonal pricing applies) and you can book via their website: https://www.thecamp.earth/

I used to work in corporate law, before quitting my job to start an eco-friendly brand helping to clean up the ocean. I travel full time with my husband exploring this wonderful place we all call home.
