WHY camp when you can glamp?

Many people try camping at least once in their life only to be put off by those pesky creepy crawlies getting into your sleeping bag.

Glamorous camping or glamping has become a popular holiday trend for those who don't want to sacrifice home comforts and go wild.

Bundaberg is home to some great places that come with all the amenities you could ask for - and then some.

Here's our top four:

Miara Holiday Park

How to get there: On the banks of the Kolan River and near the ocean 45km north of Bundaberg. Turn off the Bundaberg to Agnes Water Hwy at Yandaran.

Why it's great: Miara is a popular fishing spot with secluded beaches, bush and parklands and a family-friendly fishing village atmosphere.

There is plenty to keep non-fishing enthusiasts entertained, including a playground, kiosk, barbecue hut and picnic areas.

Visitors can choose from a diverse range of waterfront sites or bush sites.

Powered and unpowered sites are available.

Woodgate Beach Tourist Park

How to get there: The park is on the Esplanade, between Woodgate Beach and 23,000ha of national park. From Bundaberg, drive along Goodwood Rd then turn left onto Woodgate Rd.

Why it's great: The park offers sanctuary for glampers and wildlife alike with the area ideal for fishers and 4WD enthusiasts.

First-class facilities include a laundry, electric barbecues, a dishwashing area and a kitchen fitted out with stainless steel sinks and benchtops.

To dodge the cooking, the Serenity Cove Cafe & Convenience Store is at the entrance.

Agnes Water Beach Holiday

How to get there: On the north-facing side of Agnes Water Beach, about a 1.5-hour drive from Bundaberg. Follow Bundaberg-Lowmead Rd and Tableland Rd to Round Hill Rd. Then take Agnes St through to Jeffrey Ct.

Why it's great: This takes glamping to a whole new level offering a variety of chalets with gorgeous ocean views. Choose from the treetop, breakers or honeymoon chalets, all of which have gorgeous ocean views, private ensuites, flat-screen TVs and even air-conditioning.

This region is renowned for some of the best fishing along Australia's east coast and its unspoilt beaches with plenty of walking tracks.

The Agnes Beach Cafe within the grounds serves coffee, snacks and meals.

Elliot Heads Holiday Park

How to get there: Just 15 minutes from Bundaberg. Take Elliot Heads Rd for about 17km. Continue onto Saunders St before taking a left onto Lihs St.

Why it's great: Elliot Heads offers a unique holiday experience with both the beach and river mouth to enjoy.

There is plenty of windsurfing, kite surfing and fishing - and the pristine waters make it a wonderful place for snorkelling.  Powered or unpowered sites. With lots of open space parklands there is ample opportunity for secluded walks.

It's close to Bundaberg's city centre so you are never too far away from entertainment.
