Huon Bush Retreats
Eco-friendly place to stay
When you make it up the steep dirt road to this well-thought-out eco retreat, co-owner– manager Paul Dimmick may well meet you with an orphaned pademelon or other animal in his arms. The owners are dedicated wildlife carers and conservationists (they bought the place to protect it from loggers) and have set up Huon Bush Retreats on a private 11-square kilometre nature reserve among towering swamp gums, sassafras and dogwoods. There is a range of secluded solar-powered cabins with composting toilets, and two intimate, carpeted tepees, as well as a few campsites with some of the best amenities you will find anywhere. There are no TVs or hairdryers to destroy the peace, and each cabin (and the camping area) has its own, completely private outdoor bath, where you and your loved one can snuggle under the stars and watch the wildlife watch you. The retreats are in the Huon Valley, some 50 minutes drive south of Hobart.
