Turon Gates Camping

Wow!! What can I say, an absolutely memorable, awesome, luxurious experience at Turon Gates Camping!! If you are after a bit of glamping then the Sundance glamp tent is was perfectly located right on the river bank, the glamp tent is stunning and the bed was by far the best night sleep you will have in ages, a luxurious king size bed with high quality bedding (it’s the small things right?).

The setting is breathtaking and although you are located near to other glam tents you will feel completely private and not overlooked at all. You will begin to unwind as soon as you arrive as there isn’t phone signal or WiFi.

The owners are really helpful and are nearby if you need anything, however you will really enjoy the fact that you are left to your own devices and you will fell really comfortable in the glamp tent. The baths are amazing and the showers are piping hot.

Spread out over 6000 acres, Turon Gates is an authentic bush hideaway, tranquil and unspoilt only 2.5 hours from Sydney where your pet is welcome. It is located in the Blue Mountains close to Katoomba, Mudgee, Bathurst & Lithgow

With well-built pet-friendly and private rustic self-catering log cabins, glamping tents and campsites situated along 15km of crystal clear trout stream and cottages with sensational mountain views, Turon Gates is an idyllic escape in the Australian bush.

You can park your car at your camp – very convenient. We hope with a large camping field, the freedom to pick your own site and recently renovated amenities, you will return again and again. We have families who have been coming to the Turon Gates Campground for generations!!

Our sites are not powered and we don’t allow generators, chainsaws or loud music in the camping ground as it disturbs the enjoyment of other guests. There are limited 240V power points for you to blow up mattresses or charge devices.

Turon offers natural camping with wildlife and horses. While the horses are contained, there may be manure in places.
