At Tasmania’s Forest Walks Lodge there’s no television, but who needs it with this cinematic view? In every direction there’s bush, mountains and hills. Step from the property and you’re almost immediately into World Heritage-listed forest.

One of northern Tasmania’s most prominent mountains, Quamby Bluff, rises behind the lodge, and through the windows there’s a western – the craggy line of the Great Western Tiers – that plays every day.

These three days of life have been joyous. We’ve had fantastic weather, fantastic hosts, fantastic food, and great conversation – lubricated by lovely Tasmanian wines. What more could we want

This experience has it all, including the most delicious home baked bread. An essential. The food is truly amazing, and even more incredible is when Sean says the bacon on the table is from the paddock next door.

Looking at photos from our wonderful girly reunion at forest walks lodge has reminded me how spectacular this place is. I highly recommend it as a place for beautiful views, amazing food, peace and relaxation.

The section of Jacky’s Marsh Creek that flows through the open fields out the front of the Forest Walks Eco-lodge is one such gem. This is small-stream flyfishing at its best. Tight corners, deep meanders and a clear, freestone bottom make this a joy to fish with a 3-4w rod, and the rewards for precision and stealth are trout in double figures. And while its easy to cover a couple of kilometers, with so many tight meanders, you’re never far from the lodge, where Sean can cook up your catch to perfection. I’ll be back!
