We camped in the overflow camping area. It suited us perfectly for a bit of luxury camping, at very good prices for the peak Christmas / New Year period, before we went bush with no facilities! Still private & surrounded by bush, but also close to the immaculate kitchen facilities. The bathroom facilities are the cleanest we have ever found when camping. The bush walks are amazing as is the signage explaining the area. It is truly an area which needs protection. We spent many hours wandering around, taking photos & lying on the bench near the waterfall area looking up at the trees & listening to the birds. A wonderful break! The road was not a problem to us - we have a VW Tiguan towing camp trailer. Charging phones & computers was not a problem as we used our solar blanket & also recharged while driving to visit Bruny & Southport. We were enjoying ourselves so much in this amazing part of Tasmania that we found that 3 days didn't quite cut it, so we extended our stay by another day. Yes, we will be returning to stay here! Thanks to all the guys up there. You have worked hard to make this the place it is.

In short: a lovely place to escape to

In detail: my family and I had four nights in the Clifftop lodge at the start of January. My wife and I loved it. Our kids not so much. Their main issue was that they couldn't easily recharge their gadgets and had to make twice daily trips to reception to recharge iPads, Nintendos etc. To my wife and I it was a benefit.

The place was well equipped and comfortable. Two good sized bedrooms, kitchen/dining/lounge, bathroom and separate toilet were ample for our needs. All the basics were there - the beds were comfortable, the shower was hot. There was plenty of wood for the fire, which surprisingly to us we had to light on two of the four nights.

We ate most of our meals on the balcony looking out into the forest and across the hills. I found it quite idyllic and would have happily stayed longer.

We also did the Mt Misery walk which was great. Not difficult and with some prett scenery. The only part of the walk I don't recommend is to the hidden, or secret, waterfall. There wasn't enough water to make it worth the effort to get there. Perhaps after heavy rain?

We also had plenty of animal and bird visitors. In particular there were nightly visits from the Pademelons and a dark furred possum. The possum was quite insistent in looking for hand outs but not agressive even though we didn't feed him.

The composting or "drop" toilet was a bit confronting and it could smell a bit. But we found that so long as you kept the toilet window open, kept the toilet door shut and kept te toilet itself clean it was ok. We just saw it as a trade off for being in such a beautiful place.

We'd go again.

This deservedly won a unique accommodation award in 2011. Where else can you take a hot outdoor bath on the deck in total privacy with the sun on your face? The setting on a cliff top in the bush is magical. We had one of our best star gazing experiences ever, simply because there was complete darkness once we switched off our lights. Paul was most helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome. We were in the spaceous 2-bedroom cliff top cabin (a bungalow), which is tastefully decorated. There is a good selection books on Tasmanian trees, birds and mammals. Points to note: getting to the cabin involves a steep climb on a narrow unpaved road; you have to use a composting toilet; there is only 12-volt electricity, and you need to charge cell phones, laptops etc at the reception (beware if you have a CPAP machine that you need to plug in for sleeping).

After driving 4klms along a single lane dirt road we very surprised to see a very nice eco retreat.After we checked in we were met at our cabin ,by our host.He explained the features of our eco friendly cabin. Our cabin had two large bedrooms,with queen beds.A large kitchen & living area.A very large shower area & a very private outside bath. Being an eco cabin we only had a 12v power system.This meant no TV,toaster,electric kettle etc.In the living area there was a 12v sound system that worked well,so we had plenty of music.There is a modern 4 burner gas stove which includes an oven & grill.The frig is also gas powered but worked very well & was large enough for all our food & drink.There are also facilities, at reception to recharge your phone or laptop.Overall a well layed out cabin,views & very private.

We stayed in a luxury tipee and had an absolutely wonderful time. We were welcomed with a lovely pre-ordered dinner platter after easily navigating our way up the gravel road in our basic rental car.

The tipee was cosy with a lovely wood fire which kept us warm all night. The tipee was extremely quiet and peaceful and had one of the best nights sleep we have had all through our holiday in tazzie. The owners were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. For those who are looking for a glamping(glamorous camping) experience the tipee is perfect. Would love to come back, it really helped us to unwind on our travels.
