In the far south of Tasmania, the forest parts to reveal a spectacular open buttongrass plain. Your modern two bedroom self-contained cabin is a comfortable eco-experience with 12-volt solar electricity and hot water, wood heating and is free from distractions like television and in-room phones.
We offer exclusive occupancy; just one guest accommodation in a 20 hectare private reserve. Comfort and wildlife make Buttongrass Retreat the perfect place to base for exploring the natural beauty of Tasmania’s far south.
This habitat is home to a unique range of flowers, birds and animals, a community found nowhere else. The view to the Southern Ranges is spectacular and sometimes snow capped.
About 1 3/4 hours drive from Hobart (just past Dover and Southport) this is a great base to explore the nearby Ida Bay Railway, Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs, or a short drive to Cockle Creek then walk to the southern-most place in Australia.
Important: Buttongrass is a place to escape from the technology hassles of modern life for a few days. There is limited 240-volt electricity, enough to charge a mobile phone or camera but not sufficient to run a laptop computer for more than an hour a day.
