To stay in a genuinely off-grid lodge with such genial and knoweldgeable hosts was a delightful experience. The silence in the evenings is something to experience. Sean is a fantastic chef and a forest walk guide of 40 years knowledge and experience. Rosemary welcomed us and we felt like family visitors rather than hotel guests. Highly recommended.

We aim for old fashioned hospitality and we're happy that you appreciated our approach. As well as the silence there are also the stars in the evening. There are not many places totally without light pollution where you can see the whole milky way and many of the constellations.

My partner and I stayed at Forest Walks Lodge in late Winter, and got the whole place to ourselves. Our hosts Rosemary and Sean were talkative and helpful, and provided great insight to the local area, namely where the produce and meat was from.

There are lots of books and DVDs available near the fireplace, and the WiFi means you can contact home if reception drops out.

If you want to stay in a beautiful location with access to waterways, mountains, wildlife and incredible food, Forest Walks is perfect for you.

Thanks Kathleen. While many people stay away from Tasmania in the winter thinking it is too cold it is truly beautiful and you will often have the place to yourselves. There are usually some great accommodation bargains also.

Tucked away in a remote and beautiful valley where you really can hear the sound of silence surrounded by pristine rain forest and high ridges. Sean and Rosemary are passionate conservationsits protecting the natural environmemn and a walk with Sean ensures you'll never see forests in the same light again.
Superb home-cooked meals, well-appointed comfortable rooms and stunning vistas transports you back to utter peace and quiet. Highy recommended

Room tip: All rooms offer superb views

The guided walk with Sean is one of the highlights of staying at Forest Walks Lodge. His in-depth knowledge or the Tasmanian forest environment, the species diversity and ecological processes that formed it is the result of 35 years working in the area as a consultant and heritage expert. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

What an amazing place. Total peace and stupendous views. Food was excellent and the hosts were great company . I was their only guest and they spared no effort in making me feel welcome. They were heading into their busy time. Do go on the half day guided walk into the rain forest. This was the highlight of my Tasmanian adventure. Super comfy room with great views.

Thanks Enid, we try to make our single guests feel special. They usually get our undivided attention if there is no one else here which is sometimes the case, and if there is there is usually something to talk about over dinner. Our guests seem to share similar interests and often dinner conversation is lively.
