We slept in swags all week at Running Waters. Yes, I was tent-less. Swag camping is a common thing in Central Australia where rain isn’t usually a problem much of the time. Here’s what my swag set up looked like.
The swags were made of canvas, are king single sized, and inside was a full bed set-up – pillow, mattress, sheets, blankets, even a doona. So yes, it was rather cosy in there, and with a hot water bottle, I was very snug.
The advantage of being in a swag is that you have the moon and stars for company every night. I found waking up with the galaxy above me very soothing. And of course I’m there to witness the beautiful sunrises every morning.
I saw the colours change minute by minute in not just the sky, but the trees and cliff too. It was magic every morning.
