Maybe we’re biased, but we think Melbourne is one of the most exciting cities in Australia. Food, music, nightlife, shopping – you want for nothing in Burn City. But even as the city’s biggest advocates, we concede that sometimes residents get the itch to escape the concrete jungle. Then again, we do rather adore our plump mattresses and access to hot running water. The remedy? Glamping. It takes the best, luxe amenities of the city and plonks them in a gorgeous, usually secluded natural setting.
The problem is, seclusion requires transportation. Cue the Subaru Impreza. This All-Wheel Drive small car has all the extras that’ll turn an arduous five-hour road trip to a glamping site into a smooth, fun-filled adventure. You can pump tunes effortlessly from your device all the way with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity, charging as you go using the car’s multiple USB ports. You can satisfy Mum’s safety concerns with Subaru’s EyeSight® Driver Assist tech and reverse camera on selected models, and get to your luxe hideaway quicker using in-built satellite navigation. So let that country road take you home to one of these very swanky canvas cabins in a pristine spot within easy driving distance of Melbourne. We've even compiled the perfect Spotify playlist for the journey.
