As a Fair Dinkum Traveller, I have stayed in all types of accommodation. Resorts, hotels, cheap motels, Airbnb apartments and camping. It was always only a matter of time until I added glamping to the list and that came possible thanks to the great team at Boogaloo surf and yoga situated in Augusta, Western Australia.

What is the difference between camping and glamping?

As much as things seem the same, there is still so many differences. Camping requires that you to pack more, pitch your own tent, organise your bedding and your own camp kitchen. Then you need pack up everything when it’s time to leave and give your tent a good hose when back at home. It is quite a hectic experience for what is meant to be a rest away from the real world. When it comes to Glamping, all problems are solved. At least that is the case at Boogaloo. The tents are large and spacious, there is a bbq area with a wash up station and a warm shower to give you that fresh feel. It’s like checking into a hotel, only glamping is much more affordable and laidback.

Where is Boogaloo Surf and Yoga

The Boogaloo glamping site is based in Augusta, Western Australia, in the far South West corner of the state and only three and a half hours from Perth. Augusta is picturesque town, with plenty of activities and sightseeing to see and do. Wineries are a plenty for those wine buffs who love to have a taste and the major tourist town of Margaret River is only twenty minutes away.

A must visit in the area is the Leeuwin Lighthouse, the views are stunning as you climb to the top, and the Blackwood River, will keep the water enthusiasts entertained. Augusta is an unsung town that needs to be on the bucket list whenever visiting the great state of Western Australia and venturing south.

The Boogaloo Tent.

There is no cramping close together in these tents, as space is certainly not an issue. Inside is a queen-sized bed, a couple of bean bag for lounging, with a small coffee table. A little lighting is provided for when the sun comes down, enough so you can read a book at night. A couple of fold up chairs is available as well, just in case you want to sit outside under the stars with a beer in hand.

Never a better night sleep in a tent. Glamping is certainly glamorous.

If you are wondering about the bedding and its comfort ability. Never fear. I have never had a better night sleep than at Boogaloo, no aching bones or sore back in the morning. The bedding was a good as you get at home and to a lot of people that is a big deal.

Surfing Surfing is in the blood at Boogaloo.

So much so, they have introduced courses to build their famous hollow wooden surfboards. Go inside the fascinating workshop as Paul provides detailed lessons that does take a few days to carry out, but worth it in the end. How about a morning surf? Boogaloo has you covered as Paul takes you out to some hidden gems on the South West coast. If you are new to surfing, Paul also provides lessons for those daring enough to want to take on the ocean. For more details on the surfing aspect visit the website.

Yoga and Massage

You could be forgiven for thinking that Boogaloo is a 5-star resort rather than glamping out under the stars with all these extra services provided. Yoga sessions and remedial massages are also on offer at Boogaloo and it all takes place inside the luxury tents. How good is that for a glamping experience?

Appreciation to Boogaloo

A huge thank you needs to go to the Boogaloo Surf and Yoga. They made my stay comfortable and it was an enjoyable couple of nights in Augusta. Of course, this is a sponsored post, but as always, I keep my experiences real and all opinions are my own. Happy travels. boogaloo
