The Resort

Nestled in thick forest on the side of Mount Paul, and surrounded by protected National Park land, Freycinet Resort offers a private, peaceful and luxurious experience.

As the only accommodation on the mountain, we are able to offer unparalleled 360-degree views that encompass The Hazards, Friendly Beaches, Great Oyster Bay and the Tasman Sea. We invite you to step away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse yourself in the spectacular wilderness of Tasmania's East Coast.

OUR HERITAGE

The Freycinet Resort site has a long and varied history, dating back many thousands of years.

Shell middens found along the coast of the Freycinet Peninsula provide evidence that Tasmanian Aboriginal people have been present in the area for up to 35,000 years.

Since the colonial era, the land around Mount Paul has been home to many commercial enterprises. There were early attempts to develop a coal mine, but the company involved in the project was declared bankrupt before starting work; farmers have used the area for both sheep grazing and cattle farming; and the logging operations that took place from the 1950s onwards saw more than 90% of the trees on the site felled.

What you see at Freycinet Resort today are carefully cultivated new-growth forests which provide a welcome haven for the area’s wildlife. Since 2012, the land has been used for eco-tourism. Formerly known as Freycinet Retreat, the accommodation came under new management and was renamed Freycinet Resort in 2019.

Now protected as Land for Wildlife, our 1200-acre resort contains low-impact accommodation and a number of beautiful private walking tracks. We are excited and proud to become a part of the Freycinet Resort’s unique heritage, and we look forward to welcoming new and returning guests over the coming months / years.

OUR FACILITIES

The Resort offers a range of boutique accommodation options, suitable for couples, small families, and larger groups.

Situated just north of the popular town of Coles Bay, Mount Paul is a distinctive natural landform. Twin dolerite peaks are covered in eucalypt forests – home to numerous species of plants, animals and birds – and the Freycinet Resort site affords stunning views across the Freycinet Peninsula.

The Resort offers a range of boutique accommodation options, suitable for couples, small families, and larger groups. We are located several kilometres from the main road, in quiet bush surroundings, and the thoughtful design of the site allows you peace and privacy to take each day at a leisurely pace.

We know it’s the little touches that make a holiday memorable, which is why we do everything possible to ensure your stay is a special one –from the light breakfast provisions that are included if you book our Hazard View Retreats, to the underfloor heating in our Ocean View Studios, and the woodfired pizza oven that’s available for guests at The Barn Lodge.

Our unique location makes Freycinet Resort a wonderful year-round destination. In summer, we invite you to explore the private walking tracks and art trails that are available for the exclusive use of our guests, enjoy the opportunities for bird and wildlife watching, and spend the long, light evenings sitting on your private deck area.

In winter, you can relax in the cosy, comfortable environment of your cabin, or settle in to our lounge to watch wallabies and wombats at dusk. Alternatively, wrap up warm and step outside once night has fallen to be wowed by Tasmania’s beautifully clear skies. There’s no better place to indulge in some truly spectacular stargazing.
