When it comes to nature, Tasmania is the gem in Australia’s proverbial crown. An island of breathtaking beauty, Tassie hosts some of the most pristine landscapes in the country, flexes world-class fine dining, and almost single-handedly carries the nation’s art and culture scene, headlined by the famous MONA in Hobart.
But if you truly want to experience all the island has to offer, your best bet is to pack up the whip and get as far away from civilisation as possible (which isn’t hard to do in Tasmania).
Seek out the ‘SOS Only’ zones in the rugged wilderness and shack up at some awesome hotels and mountain getaways for a true digital detox. Here are our picks for the coolest luxury Tasmanian cabins worth checking out next time you plan a trip down south.
Piermont Retreat, Swansea
Set on a massive 230-acre property, Piermont Retreat is an ecologically-sustainable sanctuary on the wild east coast of Tassie. Run by the same family for 25 years, each cottage is made from stone walls and timber-slate roofing, and is appointed with a fireplace, full kitchen, spa baths, and beachfront decks. As well as being an idyllic getaway, Piermont offers a number of unique experiences for the adventurous. Take a helicopter ride to MONA, visit the nearby wineries – or take a mountain bike ride through the glorious surroundings.
