BIG4 Castlemaine Gardens Holiday Park

Luxury Safari Tent


We stayed in the safari tent which overlooked the beautiful botanic gardens. Felt like you were camping in the forest. Wonderfully appointed, everything you needed was there, including a claw foot bath on the deck with fairy lights! Very spacious with enough room to take 4 adults comfortably and the shower is huge! - Shannon Meilak (Guest)

Perfect for memorable family fun or a luxurious romantic retreat, BIG4 Castlemaine's Safari Tents provide a unique holiday experience. With a breathtaking outlook over the trees to the beautiful Castlemaine Botanical Gardens from an expansive and private wooden deck, the tents offer every feature needed for the perfect getaway.

There's a four-poster queen-size bed, a sleeping nook for the children with two single mattresses, that converts to a cosy day bed or additional double bed, an extra trundle bed and camp bed both suitable for children, a well-equipped kitchenette and dining area, large sofa and coffee table, and bathroom. Luxurious, rustic details include quality linens, cushions, rugs and lighting, and split-system heating and cooling ensures comfort year-round. A special highlight is a freestanding claw-foot bath on the gorgeous deck - literally the ideal place to sit back and soak in the views and the peace and quiet.

With all the facilities of BIG4 Castlemaine on offer, the Mill Precinct across the road and the best of Castlemaine just a stroll away, our Safari Tents are a fabulous base for your next holiday adventure!
