When and how did you come up with the idea?
I came up with the Idea of providing a Glamping service as my children always wanted to go camping and I am not a camper I like the comforts of home when I holiday so I decided to provide a service for like minded people that love the outdoors but with a little bit of luxury
Where did Clementine come from and how old is she?
Clementine is a 1968 Viscount she has had 2 previous owners before me with the original owner keeping her in immaculate condition for 45 years
How long did it take to restore her?
It took 3 months to transform Clementine she had a custom built double bed made,reverse cycle air-conditioner installed,painted inside and out,Windows replaces,new flooring,new bench cushions and new curtains
If you had any hints or tips for people who are thinking about or are restoring a vintage van what would it be?
My number 1 tip for restoring your own vintage caravan is to check every seal and make sure it is water tight
When did you start Wanderlust Glamping?
I started the restoration on Clementine in October and was ready for business late January this year
What did you do in your previous live?
My previous work has been in retail and disability and my husband and I are partners in our family farm
How did you get inspired?
I was inspired by my love for vintage caravans and while researching for information about Glamping in caravans I was introduced to the beautiful Bell Tents
How have people responded?
I receive lots of positive feedback from customers that they love the comfort of Glamping and the personal little touches I add to the experience
What is your favorite walk in the Grampians?
My personal favorite walk to do in the Grampians is MacKenzie Falls and I love to explore all the wineries
Next for wanderlust Glamping is to expand my business I have another caravan I am renovating at the moment and I am constantly adding to our list of hire items which is perfect for those that only camp a few times a year and don’t want the added expense of buying camping equipment.
