As anybody who’s been to Tasmania’s beautiful Freycinet National Park will attest, it is one of the most visually stunning places on Earth for an escape to the great outdoors. Freycinet Lodge, one of the region’s best tourism operators, runs Coastal Pavilion in Coles Bay, on the east coast of the Apple Isle: a retreat from the city which perfectly incorporates creature comforts into the forest-by-the-sea setting for which this national park is so renowned.
With just the right amount of space, a king bed, huge deck (with the coolest hammock we’ve ever seen) and outdoor bath, privacy is a given due to its remote location, allowing guests to immerse themselves for as long as necessary, and take in the birdsong coming from the thousands of surrounding trees.
The coastal bush of Freycinet National Park is a wonder to see and experience firsthand as it is, let alone the convenience of having killer digs while you soak up the serenity. Pavilions here are nestled amongst the trees; take our advice and spring for a Bay View Coastal Pavilion if you want access to water views.
