Located in an extensive private habitat reserve, these award winning tipees are set in an extensive eco-retreat amongst Tasmanian native forest. Solid timber and canvas construction, with fully carpeted floor, wood fired heater, double sofa bed. Each tipee is in its own private forest clearing. With easy access to 5km of interpreted walking tracks through rainforest, to a hidden waterfall or a mountaintop, you will not miss internet or television here. Your tipee has 12 volt solar electricity. The shared campground facilities include camp kitchen, an eco-friendly composting toilet, showers and a private outdoor bath. Our tranquility is protected by 4km of winding gravel road, steep in places. There are native animals on the road so drive slowly.

About the neighbourhood
This is an eco-resort, with nature based activities onsite and nearby: Right onsite is the Mount Misery Walk. Enjoy a 3 hour return walk through oldgrowth and rainforest, sub alpine heathland, to a mountain and a small waterfall. The track is well constructed and zigzags through the sometimes steep terrain. Interpretive panels describe the Aboriginal, early European and current uses and environmental practices. Just 50 minutes drive from Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania. We are and central to all the attractions of the Huon Valley: 10 minutes to Home Hill Winery or The Apple Museum, 20 minutes to Franklin Eco_cruise, 60 minutes to Hartz Mountains National Park and Tahune Airwalk, 80 minutes to Hastings Caves and Ida Bay Railway.
Getting around
Best to have your own or rental car. Public bus Hobart to Huonville 5 times daily, then taxi to Huon Bush Tipees.
