"Great stay close to nature"
We stayed here for two nights towards the end of our month in Australia - it proved to be one of the highlights of our trip. Not perhaps the full 'glamping' experience that some might expect, but it's very close to nature and all the better for that. The facilities are certainly comfortable enough and the staff were all excellent throughout our stay. Highly recommended - by someone who does not really do camping!
"Best Glamping Experience for the family"
Absolutely loved Paperbark Camp with my family !! Nestled away in the bush, a few minutes drive to Huskisson and the nearest beach. My two kids aged 9 and 6 thought it was heaven. Luxury tent (King Parrot) exceeded our expectations. Camping with the luxury of your own outdoor toilet, outdoor shower, indoor bath, beds and a large deck was my type of camping. Hot water in a flask delivered early every morning to our room to make some tea before we head up to the restaurant. Food was outstanding. We ate breakfast and lunch in the restaurant and it was delicious and the kids enjoyed the kids menu (coming from fussy eaters) !! Staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend Paperbark camp for a fantastic glamping experience !!!
"A fun family experience"
We were there with our daughter and family ( 3 teenage girls) for three nights. The girls were in a basic tent and we were in a De Luxe tent. Our tent, Kookaburra, was ideal as it was very private as no one had to pass the tent in order to get to their tent. We did not get bitten in the tent nu the mozzies were out and about elsewhere so repellent is advised at all times I suggest. The bed was extremely comfortable and I loved having a shower under the stars. On one occasion I was in the shower and a kangaroo hopped past ( we are from the UK so this is a real novelty for us). We had a good meal in the restaurant the first night we arrived but for the other 2 nights we tried a couple of places in Huskisson which is only 10 minutes away by car. The breakfast ( included in the price of the tent) were excellent: lovely fruit salad which was always well presented, homemade granola, yogurts and delicious honey straight from the honeycomb. There was a choice of cooked breakfasts too which were also deletions and well presented. We did however think that the camp is overpriced. More attention should be given to the outside areas although I realise that being in the bush there will always be leaves and cobwebs. We arrived on a very hot day and a welcoming cold drink would not have gone amiss. All in all a good fun experience though.
"Definitely overpriced "
My husband and I elected to spend our $520 red balloon voucher on a night at Paperbark. We were hoping for a true 'glamping' experience (given the expense) but ended up being pretty underwhelmed. The tent itself was well set out and the large bed very comfy (though it was 2 singles pushed together) and included a mosquito net. The sliding door leading to the bathroom was faulty and constantly came off it's hinges. We had to ask for matches to light the numerous candles throughout the tent. As we only had the one night we elected to have the picnic on offer (advertised for $30) so that we could do some activities and eat when we felt like it. The picnic was yum and plentiful. It included 2 juices, 2 sandwiches, 2 slices of frittata, 2 cookies, 2 friands, and a small packet of peanuts. However, on checkout we were charged $30 PER PERSON for it, which was pretty outrageous! I loved the easy access to bikes, canoes and kayaks. Canoeing on the river was very peaceful (though mosquito repellent is a must). The bikes were in good condition although there's really no marked bike tracks with all the walkways leading to people's tents which makes you feel like you're invading their privacy. We ended up cycling up to the road and back. The breakfast was lovely and efficiently served. Overall, it was a pretty b-grade experience.
"Overpriced & overrated "
I've done a lot of travel in my life and this was a very underwhelming experience for many reasons. We stayed on a weekend in peak season in January. The key issues we had were: 1. The communal area (which includes the restaurant) was very badly maintained and not clean: huge amount of cobwebs above the dining area on the balcony, dead flowers in the bathrooms plus mould, branches and debris hanging in the balcony canvas across the whole balcony. It appears even though it was peak season there's no maintenance or upkeep schedule. For a "luxury accommodation" this was far from it. 2. I'm all for eco tourism but when it's a 35+ degree day and you stay in a tent with no fan or air con purely just open "windows" with flyscreens and no breeze as you are amongst the trees it is extremely uncomfortable. Since the tent has solar power to it why wouldn't they sort out solar powered fans at the very least. 3. I get we were in the bush and with that comes spiders, animals and mosquitos. However despite all the flyscreens and us being very quick to shut any opening behind us we had a head of mosquitos in our tent. Not easy to find and kill with a tent of that size. Have they not considered mosquito nets as added protection? 4. Bed was nice and comfy but little things were missed like the complimentary mosquito spray being totally empty and no instructions/notes on say for instance how to use the lighting and the candles. Little touches that normally when you pay an extraordinary amount of money for accom you will be advised of when entering your room. 5. The bathroom including shower and toilet - this is 'outdoors' with some privacy however if people walked past our tent at the right time they could see me on the toilet or in the shower. Hardly relaxing. 6. Staff - although generally pleasant and polite the waitstaff were terrible. No idea about how to explain a menu or the items on a menu. Every time we asked for another drink they'd bring a new one then leave the old empty glasses or bottles on the table. There was candle wax in our pre-set dressing for the complimentary bread so our waitress picked it out with her finger, threw is over the balcony and put the dish back on our table. Niiiiiiiice. Food was good but just a bit of an odd mix of items on the set menu and with bad/unprofessional waitstaff it did nothing to promote what was meant to be a foodie experience. 7. The creek area was really uninviting. Half thought out and again not well kept. Nothing appealing at the thought of taking a kayak or stand up paddle board out. 8. There's bikes to use which we were excited about however after 15 minutes of attempting to ride into town (there's no where else to ride to) and dodging cars going 80km and hour with no track or footpath to use we realised it wasn't a safe idea to continue. Again something the staff might want to note when inducting guests. 9. Massively overpriced. Based on all of the above and not having much to do on site my partner and I agreed had we no tacked this onto our time already booked on the south coast we would have been infuriated driving 4hours from Sydney for that experience for a weekend. If it wasn't for Jervis Bay and Huskisson a 10 min drive away we would have utterly hated it. Not at all glamping and very underwhelming. Didn't feel like the staff were well trained or experienced in hospitality. A strange experience leaving us baffled as to the popularity of the place.
