CAMPING: Minjerribah camping has created 12 new eco sites at its Adder Rock site, available from December 11.

Straddie Camping has become Minjerribah Camping in recognition of the traditional owners of the Island.

And to celebrate 12 new island eco tents have been set up at the Adder Rock camping ground.

The high-quality, low-impact, tents blend harmoniously into the camping ground’s natural bushland setting, and are sheltered behind native tea tree and pandanus forests. The tents are just a short walk to a patrolled beach (during holiday periods) and have direct access to Home Beach and Adder Rock surf beaches. The tents were produced by Australian company, Eco Structures Australia.

There are nine tents for couples and three family tents that include an annex with bunk beds for the children. Opening rates for the new tents start from $149 per night.

All Island Eco Tents feature quality queen size beds and linen, exterior decking with an adult size freestanding hammock, large fly windows and doors, canvas shutters that can be opened or closed according to conditions, ceiling fans, tables and chairs, full electric powering, refrigerator and storage facilities.

Guests have access to Adder Rock Campsite’s communal bathroom and cooking facilities.Adjacent to the campsite is a general store and scuba dive centre, and shops, restaurants and tour operators are located a short drive away in the Point Lookout village.

The Island Eco Tents complement the permanent Glamping Tents that were launched earlier this year.

.“You are in the midst of a really attractive setting, there’s a choice of beautiful beaches on your doorstep, and now you will have the choice of traditional camping sites, Glamping tents and these really well-designed and comfortable Island Eco Tents,”  Minjerribah Camping’s Hugo Johnston said.

“For those who love the atmosphere of a camping ground, there will be all the usual benefits, but instead of having to do all the work putting up and taking down the tent and bringing all the equipment, everything is done for you so that you can spend more time enjoying the beautiful island and its myriad attractions and activities.”

There is limited availability for tents and sites at Adder Rock Camp Ground over the Christmas/summer holiday period. Full details on straddiecamping.com.au
