Coles Bay TAS 7215 Australia

Freycinet Retreat (previously known as Freycinet Eco Retreat) is set on a 1200 acre "Land for Wildlife" property located in the middle of the Freycinet peninsula adjacent to the National Park, and only a short drive to the World famous Wineglass Bay.

If you are expecting a resort, you will be disappointed as we are a nature retreat and we particularly appeal to travellers who appreciate getting away from it all in a truly natural and beautiful environment. We offer a very different experience from larger organisations, but still provide a professional, individual service and an experience that you will remember.

Freycinet Retreat has some stunning views of the peninsula from Friendly Beaches and the Tasman Sea in the east, round to the Hazards mountain range and Great Oyster Bay, which form the backdrop to Coles Bay to the south, and round again to Dolphin Sands and Moulting Lagoon, which is a RAMSARS site to the west.

On the property itself, you are welcome ta take a walk using our own map of the property or try out the permanently set up orienteering course for which we can also provide a map. There are also some great walks on the peninsula - the Wineglass Bay circuit or return trip to the lookout are a must for most visitors to the area, but there are also some less well worn tracks further down the peninsula, or if you are up for a climb then try Mt Amos, which offers some amazing views of the Freycinet peninsula.

As well as walking the other activities available to visitors are canoeing (both tours and hire), boat hire, fishing trips, four wheel motorbike tours, mountain bike hire, birdwatching, rockclimbing, abseiling, surfing, snorkelling/diving, sea cruising, scenic flights, sailing and of course just chilling out on one of the beautiful beaches.

For the wine connoiseur or for those who just like to try the local produce, then you are in for a treat with the selection of wines from local boutique producers, many of which are sought after in top restaurants around the Country and beyond. There is also a marine farm - which just happens to be almost opposite our entrance, so it doesn;t get much fresher than that. Here you can try oysters, scallops, mussels and crayfish.

When you come here, make sure you allow yourself time to try out all that the area has to offer. Stay a few nights so that you can really soak it up!

Barn Lodge

Barn Lodge Book

The Barn Lodge is located on a ridge with panoramic views overlooking the Swan River Estuary. It enjoys all day sun and stunning sunsets. This facility is specifically designed for groups of up to eight adults, together with up to two guides or facilitators. Accommodation is provided in four twin rooms in the main Lodge building, with the option of separate guide accommodation nearby (at an additional charge). Shared toilets and hot showers, together with a rustic kitchen and fire pit complete the facilities.

The whole development is off the grid, relying on solar power and it is also water self- sufficient, relying on rain catchment. There is wildlife in evidence every evening, and plenty of space to explore on this 1160 acre private property.

Unfortunately the design of the Barn Lodge is not suitable for occupancy by infants or children.

If you are expecting a resort, you will be disappointed as we are a nature retreat and we particularly appeal to travellers who appreciate getting away from it all in a truly natural and peaceful environment. We offer a very different experience from larger organisations, and one that you are likely to remember.

Do’s and Don’ts
Here are a few do's and don'ts that apply during your stay at FR:
1. The water supply at FR is rainwater caught off the rooves of the buildings. The supply is limited, so we would appreciate it if guests are “water conscious” during their stay.
2. AS FR is a retreat, and we would request that guests keep noise to a minimum, and do not explore the property by vehicle, so as not to impact on the ability of other guests to enjoy the peaceful privacy of FR. If you plan on getting together with friends in the area who are not staying at FR can you please liaise with us in advance and note that we reserve to refuse entry if we consider the numbers to be unreasonable.
3. There is a speed limit of 30kmph around FR, and guests are advised to beware of oncoming vehicles in the centre of the narrow gravel roads. Extra care is needed in the case of slippery conditions in wet weather.
4. Please note that much of the property is rough bush and rocky terrain, and whilst you are welcome to walk around, guests are advised to keep to the walking tracks and exercise care on any steep, slippery or uneven surfaces. A downloadable printable map of the property is available on our website.
5. In order to maintain the wild quality of FR and natural respect that animals have for humans, we would request that guests do not feed the wildlife. Pets are not allowed on the premises.
6. In order to preserve the peaceful atmosphere at FR, we reserve the right to refuse entry to any guests, and/or their visitors who do not respect our ethos.
7. The operation of drones is only permitted at FR with the Owner's prior written approval.
8. We would request that you please do not use any massage or baby oil on the beds, or any bleaching agents on the towels as if this occurs we have to replace the damaged items. If any items are lost, damaged or broken during your visit we should be grateful if you could let us know so that we can arrange a repair or replacement. We also reserve the right to recharge visitors for any damage that occurs that we consider to be over and above normal wear and tear.
9. When you leave the accommodation, can you please turn off all heaters and lights so that we can keep our carbon footprint to a minimum?

Many thanks.
