Description

Our place is near Cradle Mountain National Park, on 100 acres with a creek with platypus, natural springs and native alpine rainforest. The landscape is incredibly beautiful, with an abundance of wildlife and serenity.

The house is one of the only properties in this area where one can self-cater. It suits two couples or a small group or family unit. One room has a double and two single beds, the other has a queen bed, as well as a short daybed with trundle that could sleep two small children. The house has a new bathroom, with a deep cast iron bath, a new shower, a separate WC on new septic and a solid Tasmanian oak basin by renowned Tasmanian furniture designer Laura McCusker

It has taken us six years to restore this highland house . We are very proud to be able to share it now. When we found the shack in 2010, it was in a poor state, virtually derelict. Its original single room had been extended to add two rooms; it also had a series of corrugated sheds nearby. The timber shingle roof had been covered in corrugated iron. Despite at least 70-80 years’ intermittent habitation, it had no power, kitchen or bathroom when we started.

Our aim was to restore and adapt it for modern use, but also to preserve its unique appeal and integrity as a High Country shack. Where possible, we have re-used materials demolishing then rebuilding much of the shack, or used recycled materials like corrugated iron and timber, the mid-century kitchen and the bathtub from elsewhere.

We use it as a family house, and we enjoy cooking and walking. We have a lot of DVDs and games some very old-fashioned for wet weather, and the Tassie Barrell wood stove means stews can be slow-cooked and marshmallows roasted
