Forest Walks Eco Lodge is located on the edge of Tasmania’s World Heritage Area near Deloraine. The splendid mountain views from all rooms come with comfortable accommodation, good food and wine, and excellent walking opportunities. We offer accommodation and dinner packages.
Situated in the hidden valley of Jackeys Marsh on the Great Western Tiers in Northern Tasmania it is a short drive from Launceston and Devonport airports and the historic township of Deloraine, renowned for its art and crafts.

The Forest Walks Lodge experience brings you to a natural area on the edge of the wilderness. The lodge is surrounded by native animals, most of which are nocturnal but can be seen at dawn and dusk. There are also many birds, both large and small in the surrounding forests and grasslands. The clarity of the night sky is amazing.
In keeping with our sustainable ethic the food we serve is either grown on the property or sourced locally. We deal directly with local suppliers where we can. The food is cooked fresh each day and we can cater for a range of special diets and produce up market restaurant quality meals.
The solar passive design of the guesthouse ensures it is warm in winter and cool in summer and we source all our water and energy on site.
The interior is designed with your comfort in mind and it is great place to relax with family and friends.
The Great Western Tiers provides a wide range of walking opportunities for guests. Walk from the door into pristine rainforest during a 2 hour walk from the Lodge or drive to the base of the Tiers and ascend into the alpine wilderness areas on top. There are walks for children, octogenarians and adventure seekers. Two of Tasmania’s most visited waterfalls are close by, Meander Falls and Liffey Falls.
The streams in the valley of Jackeys Marsh contain brown trout and plenty of opportunity for experienced fishermen and women to try their skills. There are also larger rivers and lakes within a short drive. We can arrange for a guide if we have enough notice.
Every evening we prepare a three course dinner for those of our guests who decide to dine in. We source the ingredients for our meals from our own garden and from the many local producers of lamb, venison, fish and free range pork. We preserve fruit in season and use it to prepare delicious deserts all year round. Meals are $60 per person.
