  • What is a swag?
    In Australian slang, a 'swag' refers to a portable sleeping unit used by campers, hikers, and people on the move. It's a type of canvas bedroll that is typically made of heavy-duty material and contains a mattress or padding. Swags are designed to be rolled up and easily carried, making them convenient for outdoor adventures. Sleeping in a swag is deeply rooted in Australian heritage and carries a sense of tradition. It harks back to the days of Australian swagmen and bushmen who roamed the land, living simply and exploring the vast wilderness. They are easy to set up and pack down and are an extremely comfortable nights sleep. You are able to lay with your head on a pillow, whilst looking up at the stars as you go to sleep and you wake up to a sunrise. ​ At Savvy Swags we use the Wanderer single countour swag, which has been build to withstand the Australian climate. It has a no see mesh for ventilation and insect protection and a poly cotton canvas for durability with lightweight alloy poles with a spreader from head to toes for stregth, stability and peace of mind while sleeping in the beautiful outdoors. This swag has a 70mm high density foam mattress perfect for a comfy nights sleep. It also has a PVC bucket floor for added protection. You can carry a swag with you and set it up wherever you choose, whether it's in the wilderness, at a campsite, or even in your own backyard. It offers flexibility and freedom in choosing your sleeping location.
  • Whats so good about a swag anyway?
    If you've never experienced sleeping in a swag before, let me tell you, it's a unique and worthwhile experience. Sleeping in a swag allows you to immerse yourself in the natural environment like no other sleeping arrangement. You'll feel intimately connected to the outdoors, hearing the sounds of wildlife, feeling the gentle breeze, and gazing at the starry night sky. It provides a sense of adventure and closeness to nature that can be truly memorable.​​ The simplicity of enjoying each moment is what creates so much joy.

The simplicity, the immersion in nature, and the sense of adventure all contribute to a memorable and authentic experience that you're unlikely to forget. ​ So, if you're seeking a one of a kind adventure that combines nature, tradition, and comfort, come join us on an adventures and give sleeping in a swag a try. It's a chance to escape the ordinary and embrace the beauty of the Australian outdoors in a truly special way.
  • I've never been camping before. How about if I don't know if it's for me?
    Please don't hesitate for another moment. Spending time outdoors with new friends is an absolutely incredible experience. Totally understandable if you are nervous or scared, however that's what I'm here for. I will be your biggest supporter and there any step of the way. The other great thing it is just for a night so it gives you the perfect little taste.
  • I've never slept in a swag can I still come?
    Yes absolutely, I encourage you even more so to join us if you have never slept in one. They are so much fun!
  • Will there be insects? I hate bugs.
    When spending time in the outdoors some insects may be around. However we will do our best to avoid these if we can but nature will continue with or with out us around. There will be insect repellent available and if you are prone to being bitten by mosquitoes bring long sleeve tops and pants for extra protection.
  • I don't have anyone to come with me, should I still come?
    Absolutely! We welcome individuals who are seeking new connections and meaningful experiences. Many participants join us without a travel companion, and our retreat provides a welcoming and inclusive environment to foster new friendships. You'll have the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who share similar interests and passions. Our activities and group dynamics are designed to encourage interaction and create a sense of community. Step out of your comfort zone, embrace the adventure, and open yourself up to new connections that may last well beyond the retreat. We look forward to creating a memorable experience for you, regardless of whether you come alone or with a friend.
  • Can I come if I have dietary requirements?
    Absolutely. We are very fortunate we live in a world where we can make the choice of what we put in our body so we cater for all dietary requirements. However we must be informed of these prior to your retreat.
  • Will there be shower facilities available during the one-night camping trip?
    Not always. Some locations will have them, however not all will. As this is a shorter outdoor adventure, we encourage participants to embrace the rustic experience and connect with nature in its raw beauty. Please come prepared for a more back-to-basics camping experience. Rest assured, the focus will be on enjoying the simple life, breathtaking surroundings, and memorable activities that the trip has to offer. I recommend bringing wet wipes, if you think you may want to freshen up.
  • Can I bring alcohol?
    No alcohol will not be permitted at our camping retreats. We believe in creating an environment that promotes well-being, mindfulness, and the enjoyment of nature in its purest form. By abstaining from alcohol, we ensure the safety and comfort of all participants, as well as encourage a deeper connection with oneself and the natural surroundings. Embrace the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in a sober retreat experience that is both refreshing and transformative. For private events please contact me prior due to different locations policy's.
