My husband & I were fortunate enough to spend 4 wonderful days in the Tarkine. The effect it had on us is indescribable. We expected something "magical" and were not disappointed. Had to keep pinching ourselves that we were immersed in this enchanting wonderland of such beautiful old, old, old growth trees and the most fantastic fungi, ferns and vines. We were especially intrigued with the numerous little crays" houses that we were desperately careful not to squash as we plodded nearby. We of course couldn't have and wouldn't have been able to explore this precious forest without our two wonderful and knowledgeable guides, Trevor and Jane. They took great care with all of us and their passion for the Tarkine forest and coastline was infectious and we are so grateful to them. It is a "special" place that must be protected at all costs and we urge anyone looking for a "life changing experience" to go as soon as possible.

Nestled amongst ancient forests and Eucalypts at Tiger Ridge, the retreat is the first of its kind in the region, and includes large private permanent tents erected amongst the trees, and the new Tarkine Longhouse – the hub for meals and relaxation around the fireplace. Located on the edge of a forested valley, the Tarkine Longhouse features an open design that allows guests to connect to the surrounding forests on three sides, and a cantilevered veranda extending into the lush canopy. ... more less
