About

#2 of 3 campsites in Richmond
Service
Discover Aquila, a Tasmanian rural escape that cares as much about its unique natural environment as it does about grown-up luxury. Aquila promises an off-grid glamping experience that doesn’t skimp on the necessities: lush linens, wood heaters, raw timber furnishings and kitchen mod-cons, in the total seclusion of a deluxe Eco Pod or Glamping Tent. Set amongst Coal River Valley wine country, you’re invited to indulge body, mind and soul. Bathe in expansive views over local vineyards and across rolling hills to Hobart’s kunanyi/Mt Wellington, and explore the working farm and bushland setting. Created with sustainability and calm comfort in mind, Aquila is your permission slip to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect.

We stay there only one night but what a night ! You feel relaxed as soon as the gates of the property opens. The view from the tent was absolutely amazing and we could take a warm bath outside with some sheeps as neighbors. In the evening when it get cold you even have the cutest fire place to warm the place and create a lovely and cozy ambient. Really really loved our stay . Thank you Alice for your kindness and the amazing stay !

We stayed 2 nights in the Banksia eco-pod, one of three similar pods. An amazing, beautifully appointed, adult-only pod with everything you need to chill out. It confirms that off-grid eco-living doesn’t have to lack any creature comforts. They have impressive 180-degree views across the Coal River valley and a range of wildlife, birds and farm animals are often seen wandering around. They are only minutes from Richmond township but feel like miles from anywhere! We booked direct via their website, the process was smooth and the hosts great to deal with. We were lucky to be able to see the clamping tent, now that we’ve seen that we HAVE to come back!
