Paperbark Camp: Luxurious Eco Tents Nestled in the Australian Bushby Yuka Yoneda, 04/11/11filed under: Architecture,Eco Tourism,Eco Travel

Guests at Paperbark can choose between original safari tents, which have verandahs and indoor/outdoor private ensuites attached or deluxe safari tents with large verandahs, indoor/outdoor private ensuites and free standing baths. Each tent was built with respect and consideration to the surrounding wildlife and no large trees were removed to create the clearing for the site. Other eco-amenities include solar powered electric 12 volt lighting, natural ventilation, low-flow showerheads, dual-flush toilets, hot water that is heated on demand only using gas, light sensitive timer switches for public lighting, use of compact fluorescent bulbs and revegetation of the areas affected by the development.

The resort is a car-free zone but that’s no problem since guests have access to canoes, kayaks and bicycles free of charge. After a day of exploring the gum and mangrove forests (which are apparently a great place to spot kangaroos!), you can head to the Gunyah, a tree top dining room, you can retreat to your cozy canvas suite and take a long, hot bath or hit the downy cotton sheets and be lulled to sleep by the soothing sounds of the bush.
