SANCTUARY BY SIRROMET MOUNT COTTON, QUEENSLAND
Sirromet, located in beautiful Mount Cotton in Queensland, 30 minutes' drive from Brisbane, is known for its first-class wines under chief winemaker Adam Chapman. Now, it is also known for its luxury glamping experience.
Launched in May 2018, Sanctuary by Sirromet has luxury tents, facing a natural lily-pad studded lagoon. Birds and butterflies visit the newly planted native shrubs while resident wallabies leisurely graze in the vicinity.
Within your tranquil abode, there is no television, however, Wi-Fi is complimentary. Dedicated to the environment, the property is green and clean. All your personal supplies are enviro-friendly with the handmade goat's milk soap and body lotion divine. I love that the compendium, made by a local leather worker, consists of recycled paper dotted with seeds.
When it is replaced, the paper simply decomposes and the seeds sprout a new generation of Australian flora.
Tents vary in size to suit couples or families and there is a secluded honeymoon tent. All feature silk-lined ceilings, polished floors, reverse cycle-air-conditioning along with luxury linen on comfortable king-sized beds.
And then there is the food. During our two-night stay, we dine at Lurleen’s Restaurant and savour a Sirromet food and wine safari. We ride in the trailer behind the farm tractor to station after station bulging with fine food and wine, joined by winemaker Adam Chapman, and head chef Matt Fulford. The safari’s last course is in the Barrel Hall, and afterwards, replete with beautiful food and wine, it is a short, easy walk back to our tent, accompanied by a light breeze whispering in the trees under an infinite ceiling of stars.
