The perfect retreat for my wife and 10mth old for our 1st year wedding anniversary. Great Teepee set up in secluded and peaceful bush setting. Wildlife in abundance and the host are respectful and very welcoming. The property is respectful of the environment and great to see the conscious thought shown when respecting the traditional owners of the land and...

Hi SNP, Thanks for staying in our deluxe teepee at Huon Bush Retreats. We are glad that appreciated the eco-friendly facilities and the Aboriginal aspects of our interpretive information. When setting up the property, we engaged with the local Aboriginal community. They asked that we avoid a few specific areas and they shared a few traditional stories with us. These...

Thank you for a relaxing stay high up in the mountain. Very peaceful and quite. Wildlife come to visit at night, very cute. Driveway a bit steep but just take it slow. Our stay was a bit cold so the fireplace was perfect. Upon our arrival the fireplace was prepared for lighting. Thank you

Hi SALLYANN, At 350 metres above sea level and at the very end of the valley, the journey to Huon Bush Retreats creates a wonderful sense of arrival and seclusion. So glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thanks for the 5 star review :) Paul D

We stayed with Paul and Michael for 3 wonderful days in September. The facilities are lovely, the environment is natural and peaceful. We saw lots of wildlife, which was a highlight for us. This is a gorgeous untainted part of Tasmania. We had a fabulous stay.

Stayed in Teepee. A great relaxing retreat in the bush surrounded by sometimes rather cheeky and inquisitive marsupials and birds. There is even a 3ish hour return bush walk from the property. Really nice stay. Glamping at its best. A fire in the teepee with lots of wood to keep warm.

Perfect place to relax and unwind from day to day pressures. The cabin was nestled in amongst a totally private bush setting with all the basic comforts of home, lovely wood heater, comfy bed and 2 x lounges to sprawl out on whilst taking in the rain forest view. Same view from the shower..... The bath on the deck was...

Hi Basil, Yes, winter is a great time to relax in front of the wood fired heater. I reckon the waterfall would have been flowing nicely after the recent rains. We look forward to seeing you again next year, Thanks for your visit and review, Paul D

My partner and I stayed in the streamside cabin over the long weekend. It was beautiful and quiet. Being able to disconnect and reset was exactly what we were after. We took the walk up to mount misery which was worth the journey.

This is an amazing place to stay! The drive up the hill takes you further and further into the bush and then you arrive at the retreat. The cabins and tipees are also hidden in the bush - you have no neighbours! Our tipee was fantastically designed and built and the owners had the woodfire prepared for our arrival. There...
