New Year's Eve won't be quite the same this year, especially if you're used to camping out for your favourite bands at one of the country's many multi-day festivals. We can't give you an opportunity to emerge into 2021 full of music, covered in mud and with no real sense of time or place, but there is a pop-up camping set-up in Sydney's Northern Beaches this summer that'll let you relive the camping – or glamping, should we say – aspect of that experience.
Bedouin at the Beaches will set up in the grounds of St Patrick's Seminary in Manly's North Head – otherwise known as the site at which Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby was filmed. Overlooking the waterfront of the Northern Beaches, it's only there between December 26 and January 31 – so you'll have to book in quickly. A set of roomy bell tents will take over the grounds, each kitted out with a queen bed, a Persian rug, In Bed linen, and outdoor table and chairs, and a host of little luxuries – as well as breakfast included at the Boathouse Shelly Beach. Each tent starts from $290 and sleeps two.
