My wife and I spent two nights of our honeymoon together here. This was a wonderful place to stay. It is quite remote and the stream side cabin is very private.
The cabin was very clean and confortable. Plenty of wood for the fire. No TV. Outside bath. CD player and a few CD's provided. The cabin is run on solar 12 volt power and this was not a problem and the battery backup did not run out at all.
Paul (one of the owners) ran us through the requirements for the stay etc and from then on we did not see another person/car while on site.
A pair of black currongs welcomed us on arrival and called us for a chat and a snack each morning and afternoon. Lots of visiting wildlife around dusk and into the evening.
The large bath did take quite some time to fill with the small water heater/tank needing to re-heat a couple of times, but once completed this was very relaxing.
The road UP to the administration building is a reasonable challange, but there are notes at the gate to explain how best to tackle the steep gravel/concrete road sections. Note if using a front wheel drive hire car turn off the traction control as when we got to the gravel hill the car just came to a halt as it could not get traction, once the traction control was off the wheels had more than enough grip to get up the hill. Also the Stream Side cabin is lower than the very steep section so it was only negotiated once.
All up this was a wonderful part of our honeymoon and very relaxing (and private) place to take some time out and/or visit the lower area of TAS east coast.
