Hi Sharlene, So glad you enjoyed your stay. I would love to know how we can improve the rating you provided, Thanks, Pamela

Loved the experience of being nestled in the bush with wallabies at our back door. Beautiful caring for country walk with lots of really interesting information about the environment and first peoples. Hosts are super friendly and accommodating. Make sure you arrive in daylight as the steep climb on a dirt road would not be fun in the dark. We managed fine i our 2-wheel drive. Highly recommend if you want to unplug.

Such a beautiful spot. So peaceful! Would definitely recommend. Some of the things in the cabin could use a little tlc but that is really just nit picking. Would definitely go again

Hi Anonymous, Great that you enjoyed the privacy of the Huon Bush Retreats. Our large area of protected forest has meant that each cabin and tipee is in its own secluded setting, surrounded by nature. Please keep us in mind when you next want a private retreat in nature. Thanks Paul D

If you need to get away from technology this is it

Pros: Peace and quiet
Experience nature and peace and quiet. We had to talk and read as there was no phone reception or power for music or internet so if you need to get away from everything this is perfect.

Glad that you enjoyed the "nature and peace and quiet" in our forest cabins. Yes, this is a "getaway from everything" and a beautiful place to relax, explore and experience nature. Some people use the term "Digital Detox". Thanks for visiting and fro your review,

Very quiet and eco friendly Bush retreat.

Pros: Bush location, quietness and views.
Cons: Access but this may change the secluded natuew of the property.
Location: A place to unwind and stay on site for a few days. If you wanted to travel daily to tourist sites in the area there may be closer options.
Steep and narrow single road access that would be a challenge for 2 wheel drive vehicles. Very quiet and secluded location with great views over the Huon Valley. No 240 volt power but this was not a problem for our short stay. Comfortable accomodation. Big comfy wood heater for the colder nights.

Hi Peter, Thanks for your visit and review. Glad that you enjoyed the "Bush location, quietness and views". Our end of valley tranquility is protected by the 4km of gravel road. This is part of being a "Bush Retreat". As you correctly point out, if we were on the high traffic bitumen road, this would "...change the secluded nature of the property." Our 12 volt solar electricity also has USB for phone charging. 240 volt electricity can be provided if required for special purposes. Thanks for adding the photos to this review. They clearly show our unique feature which is the secluded forest setting. Cheers Paul D
