Devil’s Lair Cabin, Tasman Peninsula

Starry nights, with spirit

Raise a dram to Australia’s southern most whisky distiller from this new cabin – on-site at McHenry Distillery. Better still, enjoy a dram and an evening of dark sky stargazing from the distillery’s new observatory, inside a converted barley silo.

The one-bedroom Devil’s Lair sits on a hilltop surrounded by forest and close to Tasman Peninsula highlights: Port Arthur Historic Site, the Three Capes Track, and plenty of beaches.

Eton Beach House, Swansea

East coast retreat

Secluded Eton Beach House is just a few minutes’ drive from the seaside town of Swansea, on Tasmania’s east coast, and only 50 steps from the ocean. 

With big views of Great Oyster Bay framed by low local-bluestone walls, Eton is made for slow mornings and unwinding with your favourite people. 

It sleeps six stylishly in two wings, offering plenty of space and privacy for gathering of friends and family, with an expansive living area bringing the household together. 

Take long beach walks, cook feasts, sleep long, talk late.

Taraki Lodge, King Island

Fit for a King

Bass Strait views and rugged coastline don’t come any more dramatic than at Taraki Lodge, high in the dunes on King Island’s west coast.

The lodge has four king-size bedrooms with ensuites, stylish living areas and a commercial kitchen made for entertainers.

Outdoors, there are more living and dining areas. But the ‘wow’ factor lies in a new cedar outdoor hot tub and a wood-fired sauna with spectacular views. Stay toasty with the indoor fireplace or outdoor firepit. Or both.

Vaucluse Estate, Campbell Town

To the manor born

One of Tasmania’s grandest colonial-era estates has thrown open its doors as boutique accommodation.

Vaucluse Estate, established in 1825, can sleep up to 24 people comfortably, with nine individually styled rooms in the main house and more in the three-bedroom Coach House just a short stroll down a garden path.

Wander the grounds, surrounded by pasture and grazing sheep, retire to the library, relax in a lounge, or catch views over the South Esk River and across to mighty Ben Lomond from the homestead’s wide, wrap-around verandas.

The Stand Alone, Eaglehawk Neck

Standing alone, together

Close to the geological wonder of the Tessellated Pavement and Eaglehawk Neck on the Tasman Peninsula, The Stand Alone is a private bush retreat for two with direct access to the beach below.

Bathe outdoors in a bath and shower surrounded by forest, and warm up indoors by a cosy wood stove. Wake to birdsong and feel the serenity as you connect with nature and your closest companion.
