This is an amazing place in my own backyard (i'm a local Tasmanian) that i was blown away by. The peaceful and serene wilderness provided us with the best time for 4 days and 3 nights.
The organisation of the trip by Tarkine Trails left nothing to chance and we were looked after by two fabulous young guides Daniel and Johnny who willingly imparted great stories and educational information on the forest flora and fauna of the Tarkine.
We were fed some good local Tassie food and plenty of it amongst some of the best backdrops. My only comment would be that perhaps a greater emphasis onTasmanian produce would be nice.
The walks were not particularly difficult for a general level of fitness. If you are after challenging walks then perhaps discuss this before your trip, as there may be more difficult/challenging tracks the guides can take you on.
The camping was closer to glamping and my friend and i felt pretty spoilt. Tents were spacious and comfortable and the outdoor washroom was the best view i've ever had from a bathroom window!
The communal long house was an awesome setup and nestled unobtrusively into the environment.
Overall an amazing few days and well worth it. Just inspires me to save for the 6 day Tarkine coastal walk.
Like the Nike advert says 'JUST DO IT'
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Tarkine Rainforest Retreat gives visitors access to a remote section of the Tarkine rainforest and the opportunity to experience the ancient rainforest from a comfortable base camp. 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
