Tarkine Wilderness Lodge

Reviewed March 24, 2012

A beautiful lodge commanding excellent all round views of the native montane forest of Northwest Tasmania. Trails guided by Maree take you into the old growth forest with all its wildlife treasures - not to be missed.

I knew I wanted to see the Tarkine but I had no idea my husband, another couple and I were about to enter into a world of such incredible beauty is would be impossible not to have a life changing experience. The Lodge is sparklingly clean and beautifully designed. Built with massive , highly sanded and polished Macrocarpa wood beams. Every room has a view o0f the Tarkine Wilderness along with an en suite with everything you need.

All our meals were cooked beautifully and served with warmth and care.

I cant say enough about this amazing woman Maree whose fight to keep the Tarkine Wilderness away from loggers and miners has created is inspiring to say the least.

Cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: Every room is beautiful

We stayed for 2 nights at the Tarkine Wilderness Lodge in Tasmania, it was fabulous. The lodge itself boasts Tasmanian timbers, and beautiful local art works, plenty of interesting books and articles to read, stunningly presented, clean, and comfortable. We felt "at home" immediately, more so due to Maree's easy going manner and cheerful disposition. She is a wonder herself, a passionate guardian of the rainforest in which she walks everyday. We had the lodge to ourselves and had a perfectly relaxing and enjoyable time. The rainforest walk was amazing, knowledgeable and beautiful. It did not seem like a 3 hour walk at all!! We could have kept going. Our room was delightful, facing out to the forest, lovely decor, warm and comfy. Then there was the food! Home cooked meals of Tasmanian produce and the bounty of Maree's vege patch. Delicious; good wine at reasonable prices, a fully stocked bar, fridge and fabulous kitchen. Maree and her Dad, Peter, and Ben, the dog,made our weekend special, but were not at all intrusive. I would highly recommend this as a special holiday, or just a day trip.

My husband and I stayed here a few months ago and were amazed that this world class accommodation was less than 2 hours drive from our home. The owner Maree is very passionate and provides a wilderness experience, not just accommodation. We opted for dinner at the lodge which was about $40 for a 2 course dinner. Arriving in the early evening, we entered the building to find delicious smells coming from the open kitchen in the beautiful lodge. We had the place to ourselves for the evening and it would have to be one of the most peaceful and relaxing places I have stayed. The next morning we could see the view from our location in the daylight - WOW the location is gorgeous. Maree took us for a walk in the rain forest to see a huge tree and we would love to have had time for one of the longer walks. We will be back again and hope others have the chance to experience the Tarkine Wilderness and Maree's Lodge

Maree Jenkins and her partner Richard logged, milled and finished local trees to create this stunning hilltop lodge and it’s totally solar powered. Our package included meals and a guided hike in the Tarkine . Maree shared her love of the Tarkine and will tailor hikes to abilities and interests, she is a gracious and cheerful host and guide. If you're lucky you might see wedge-tailed eagles, parrots, platypus, pademelons, quolls and/or wombats. We happened to arrive as the mushrooms and fungui were just beginning to poke through forest detritus: purple, orange, red, yellow and black - Maree knew just were to look. The lodge itself is beautifully done with open beam ceilings, fantastic views, comfy, clean & airy. Food was delicious and plentiful and the wine reasonably priced. This, along with Kings Run Wildlife tour (excellent way to see Tasmanian Devils in their natural environment) was one of the highlights of our Tasmanian trip.
