Sanctuary by Sirromet
Queensland is set to get its first vineyard glamping accomodation, when Sanctuary by Sirromet opens later this month. Eighteen permanent safari-style tents are dotted across the family-owned Sirromet Winery, surrounding the exisiting four-bedroom Merlot House guesthouse. The elevated tents are located hillside following the property’s natural contour down to the lagoon, each with a private balcony looking out to the paperbark trees and giant scribble gums. Sanctuary by Sirromet will comprise 15 couples’ tents, two for families and one created especially to be a bridal suite, each featuring a king bed, luxe linens, reverse-cycle air-conditioning, en suite, stocked mini bar and wifi. A locally sourced breakfast hamper filled with the likes of fresh croissants, granola and yoghurt pots and smoked salmon bagels are included with each booking, plus guests can choose to dine at the winery’s on-site venues. The 18 initial tents are just the first stage of Sanctuary by Sirromet – the winery has approval for 55 sites in total. Bookings are now open for when Sanctuary opens to the public on Friday June 1.
