Absolutely Fabulous

I organised this Retreat as a birthday surprise for my partner and his response on entering was priceless! Wow! was an understatement. We didn't need to leave for the duration of our stay. Fully equipped and catered kitchen. Fabulous views, extra large comfy bed. So glad we had the opportunity to stay at Rocky Hills.

Tree top Hideaway

Absolutely stunning views of the east coast of Tasmania. Everything catered for from complimentry ingredients to make a soup for dinner to hats and aeroguard for a walk along the access roads. Access also to an art studio in an old church to express your inner Monet. Highly recommend for a romantic weekend away.

Romantic Space in the Hills

Breathtaking views from the top of a huge hill. Every thing you could ever want from complimentary ingredients to make a rustic soup to hats and aeroguard to wander along the roads. Access to an old Church turned into a art studio to express your inner self which unfortunately didn't have time to complete some art. Thank you thank you thank you, we will be back next year. Shhh, don't tell too many people about this gem of a place

Weekend Away

Took the wife up to Rocky Hills for a weekend away. Amazing location, secluded and private. The house itself is phenomenal, with all glass walls along 3 sides, open layout and perfect facilities. The old chapel turned art studio will be right up your alley if you want to spend some time producing artwork or chilling out on the lounge. Otherwise you can spend some time in the main house, reading from the large library, handing out on wonderful couches, or in the huon pine bath on the deck. A great and relaxing experience.
