How the idea was born?
The notion of Cosy Tents all started during a camping expedition along the banks of the Murray River. We stood right in the middle of Australia’s longest river engulfed with corridors of red gum and surrounded by dry natural bushland. The beauty of the outdoors is really something spectacular that you don’t experience in big city living and at the time we didn’t realise it, but it was what sparked our idea to combine the outdoors with a little bit of luxury.
That night we laid under the stars in our swags barely big enough for one, thinking how great it would be to experience this beautiful place with the comforts of home.
After falling asleep watching the night sky, it wasn’t long before daybreak. The sunrise was remarkable and the first thought that came to mind was the feeling of a nice hot shower and a cup of freshly ground coffee. It wasn’t long before the realisation kicked in that the closest thing to a hot shower was the Murray River! Yikes!
And there it was, the light bulb moment that we wanted to bring the comfort of luxury with the beauty of the outdoors. 12 months after our weekend getaway to the Murray River, we opened the doors to our first fully furnished luxury camping experience.
We hope that you will enjoy camping as much as we do!
Meet your hosts
When you spend a night with us, you will be welcomed by myself (Jarek), my wife Eva or one of our friendly camp managers. I am originally from Canada but moved to Australia to study and that’s where I met Eva, and well she is pretty much as Australian as you get having grown up in the Territory.
Living in Canada meant that I got to experience all four seasons of the year, from extreme snowstorms to sunny days and heat waves, but I would say summertime was definitely my favourite time of the year. I still distinctly remember my summer’s back home where I was always outdoors, hitting the nearby beaches (there are a few around) and camping every chance I get. Lucky for me, living in Australia means I get to enjoy the outdoors more without having to deal with those crazy snowstorms!
My wife Eva also helps me run Cosy Tents. She grew up in Darwin where it’s constantly hot and seems like everyone is always up for a good adventure. Growing up in Darwin meant that she got to enjoy many more sunny days than me and regular trips to local hotspots like the nearby waterfall’s and swimming holes was a must! But I must say, Eva’s real passion is for design and decorating and she incorporates the luxury elements into Cosy Tents.
With my love for the outdoors and Eva’s passion for design, we bring the essence of luxury and camping together. Why not drop by and come and enjoy a unique camping experience with us at Cosy Tents.
We hope to see you soon!
