Forest Walks Eco Lodge is a small intimate guesthouse located on the edge of Tasmania’s World Heritage Area near Deloraine. It is surrounded by forests, birds and wildlife. The splendid mountain views from all rooms come with comfortable accommodation, good food and wine, and excellent walking opportunities. We offer dinner, bed and breakfast packages as well a guided walks.
Situated near the historic town of Deloraine in Northern Tasmania it is a short drive from Launceston and Devonport airports. Located on the Great Western Tiers there are many varied walking trails for all ages. As well, the pristine waters and rich agricultural soils provide the clean, green produce for the meals cooked specially for guests. “Its like having your own personal chef”, an often expressed sentiment.

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 meals, for those of our guests who decide to dine in, with local produce from the region. We grow most of the vegetables and source venison, pork, fish, eggs and lamb from local farmers and fish outlets. Fruit for breakfast and deserts is eaten fresh in season or alternatively preserved in season. Bread is made daily on the premises and homemade jam and local honey is available at breakfast. We believe in slow food and share a philosophy with many others of sourcing food with low food miles.
