Set on 2 titles, this expansive property features 4 private cabins, a reception with commercial kitchen and manager's residence, 2 deluxe tipees, an amenities building and camp kitchen with entertaining area, plus multiple camp sites. The cabins all offer luxurious outdoor baths and cosy woodheaters plus private balconies which all take in views of the natural surroundings. They have been designed with colorbond cladding and toughened glass to be fire resistant and to blend in with the natural environment.
Offering an eco friendly design and fully off grid carbon positive operation with solar power, gas/wood/solar water heating and fresh clean rainwater for drinking and cleaning.

With a currently multi award winning tourism business in place you have the ability to explore multiple avenues under the current tourism approval, such as: company or wellness retreats, or venture into potential family, residential, or other business uses with a change of use (subject to relevant approvals).
There is also the ability to purchase another cabin and 3 other adjoining titles of land at an additional cost and if interested, purchase the business or potential lease back to the current operators for a period of time if you are in investor wanting to secure some of Tasmania's old growth wilderness, on your own private land which is not easy to come by.
Another potential option for a larger family or community group would be sharing uses of the many buildings under the current use and possibly explore a community title or share scheme to create further ownership options within the approvals.
The current business has the option to offer more events to expand on the income potential including weddings, birthdays, company wellness retreats and much more where the whole property can accommodate 50 guests.
Access to the retreats is approximately a 45 minute drive South of Hobart, past iconic apple orchards and vineyards. Huonville is a 10 minute drive away for local and essential conveniences.
