The large number of Darling Downs locals who help make up the throng at Woodfordia for the annual Woodford Folk Festival will notice a touch of luxury has been added for a lucky few this year.
Twenty luxury glamping tents with ensuite bathrooms and kitchens have been launched with the help of $1.2 million from the Queensland Government Growing Tourism Infrastructure fund.
Woodfordia Inc. General Manager Amanda Jackes said the beautifully furnished glamping tents were located in the shady camping grounds of Woodfordia around Lake Gkula and close to the General Store.
“The glamping tents will be booked for events ranging from the iconic Woodford Folk Festival to the two-week Lake Gkula Camping period in Easter 2023,” Ms Jackes said.
“Ultimately, these gorgeous glamping tents will be available for bookings year-round during either festivals and events, or for private functions or short-term holiday stays.
“This project would not have been possible without the support of the Queensland Government and its vital funding of new tourism infrastructure.
“Accommodation has always been an issue at Woodfordia with the most recent festival selling out all our 120 premium luxury bell tents along with the 250 tent city tent motels.
“These luxury glamping units will bring a new level of indulgent offering for our patrons.”
