our story

Why did we start Bayside?

Bayside Glamping was the brainchild of my dad & I. We wanted to provide accommodation with a point of difference – specifically for romantic get-aways, where we can share this beautiful patch of coastline with people from all over the country.

Our family has been in Marion Bay since I was three years old. After living in Sydney for 8 years, I decided it was time to come home. Starting Bayside reminded me of just how beautiful Yorkes is – and how deep my connection is with the land.

My dad, George, is the brains and muscle behind the build. When I told him about my brilliant idea, he was quick to offer the secluded back part of his block, that’s nestled amongst the trees, at the end of his quiet cul de sac. He was eager to use his talents to create a unique little get-away, all whilst bonding over this project with his #1 daughter (he says this to all of us)
