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.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in September (2018), it was ideal for a peaceful and relaxing stay and lived up to expectations in every respect. We found our hosts, Sean and Rosemary, very welcoming and good company, they are both excellent cooks, the food and wine were delicious including fresh produce from their own garden, and the conversation fascinating. We had the end room furthest from the dining area; it was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well furnished, with a small patio and a view down the valley to distant mountains. The lodge itself is an interesting building; architect-designed to ecological standards. Sean is an ecologist with an extensive knowledge of the local environment which he and Rosemary have campaigned tirelessly to conserve, without them and their fellow campaigners it would have been destroyed years ago. Our walk with him in the very beautiful local forest and his detailed explanation of its ecology was one of the highlights of our trip. There is good birding in the surrounding woods and fields, and pademelons (like small wallabies) can be seen by day, possums by night and there are wombats in the forest. Jackey’s Marsh is a beautiful place – long may it remain so.

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.

Can’t wait to repeat the experience in March 2019. Already booked.
