Riverside Glamping in the Outback
Close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting silently in front of a slowly burning campfire warming your feet as you gaze up at a blanket of a billion twinkling stars. Absolute silence except the crackle of the fire and the distant hoot of an owl. Complete peace and serenity… That’s the dream of Outback Almonds.
A working almond farm on the banks of the Darling River in far west NSW, we have a 9000 tree crop with a selection of natural, blanched, slivered, hot and spicy and chocolate coated almonds available to purchase via our online shop. Farm tours are available, keeping in mind that harvest takes place from January to April, and the magical almond blossom occurs during August.
Come and stay the night in one of our three Canvas Bell Tents by ‘Glamping’, or perhaps ‘The Cottage’ is more your thing! If you’re just passing by, or looking for something a little different, book for a Long Lunch or Dinner under the stars. Your hosts Tom & Tegan are happy to work with you to make your Outback Almonds experience personalised.
The Cottage is situated with the Darling River right at its backdoor, with a fire pit, outdoor entertaining area and spacious enclosed yard with lawn suitable for couples and families.
Set amongst nature, the large canvas bell tents are designed for a mostly off grid luxury camping experience.
