|Eco Accommodation in Freycinet, near Coles Bay, Tasmania|
Freycinet Eco Retreat is located at Mt Paul which is a 1200 acre property situated in the centre of the Freycinet Peninsula close to Coles Bay, offering accommodation in eco-cabins, eco-studios, and also a private camp site. All our facilities are well spaced out, so the atmosphere is one of a retreat. Our "eco-lectic" range of buildings offers water and energy efficient low impact examples of green building, and all our accommodation has stunning water views.
Unfortunately, none of the accommodation is suitable for occupancy by infants or children.
Our two purpose built luxury eco-cabins called "The Lodges" , plus eight modern studio style cabins called "Eco Studios"(to be completed November 2015), provide private accommodation on Mt Paul for up to 20 guests. For those seeking peace and quiet, bird song and star light, this is the perfect natural get away, but with no compromise to comfort. It's also a great retreat for the cooler months as the lodges and studios have effective heating, and the shack has a log burner. All have LCD or LED TVs, and are double glazed and fully insulated - features which few other places locally can boast.
If you are expecting a resort, you will be disappointed as we are a nature retreat and we particularly appeal to travellers who appreciate getting away from it all in a truly natural and beautiful environment. We offer a very different experience from larger organisations, but still provide a professional service and an experience that you will remember.
Guests in November 2014 had this to say: "Absolutely Fantastic! I wondered if all the positive reviews could be true and it is even better than I expected. This is a very special place! Saw my first wombat in the wild and the Superb Fairy Wrens were adorable not to mention the many wallabies. Thanks so much, don't change a thing."
Nearby is the coastal village of Swanwick and the town of Coles Bay as well as the resorts of the Edge of the Bay and Freycinet Lodge, which together with Iluka Tavern and Tombolo Cafe provide a range of activity and eating options for a variety of tastes and budgets. More information is available at www.wineglassbay.com.
Within the Freycinet area there is a range of activities including bushwalking, sea kayaking, nature cruises, diving, rock climbing, quad biking, penguin and dolphin tours, swimming, surfing, golf, great ocean and river fishing, or simply enjoyment of the wines, the fine foods, and the wildlife.
Mt Paul is a registered Land For Wildlife property, and we are from time to time engaged in raising orphaned wildlife - see our blog www.crittercolumn.blogspot.com - for release back to the wild.
