|Mt Paul - The Home of Freycinet Eco Retreat|
Mt Paul is a noticeable landform north of Coles Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula. The twin forested dolerite peaks, joined by a saddle, rise some 260 - 280 meters above sea level, and have stunning views over the whole of the Freycinet Peninsula.
Mt Paul has a 100 year modern history including rough sheep grazing, coal mining, and tree felling. In the 1990's, logging operations brought access tracks, power, and a cottage. In 2002 the current owners purchased the property and embarked on a series of low key tourism developments, including in 2004 two timber lodges, in 2006 a manager's residence, the Barn in 2007, and the Arc in 2009.
Today Mt Paul gives the appearance of a natural landscape, and adjoining the Freycinet National Park, forms a buffer zone for wildlfe, offering peace and privacy for guests.
