A fully self-contained, luxury, eco-friendly, on-farm retreat.
A special place with a quiet and meditative ambiance that imparts connected detachment.
Luxury Accommodation Tasmania
Aquila Barn is ideally located as a central base from which to discover the secrets of Tasmania’s magnificent and diverse North-West. Tulip season brings a spectacular symphony of colour to Table Cape, followed by the no-less spectacular flowerings of iris and lilies. The entire region, always a dynamic matrix of colour, then excels as pale pink opium poppies and intense white pyrethrum crops bloom, blanketing the fields in tumbling swathes of colour.
Wynyard has an extensive network of scenic walking trails, from gentle river walks on the banks of Inglis River, where the not so elusive, platypus frolic, to foreshore strolling pathways, and headland cliff trails to the lighthouse – a sentinel to the tulip field of Table Cape.
Radiating out to the country hamlets such as Elliot, Yolla, Waratah one is assured a genuine country hospitality. A sense of welcome is similarly assured in the charming historic, coastal settlements such as Boat Harbour, Sisters Beach, Stanley, or east to the Port of Burnie and from there to Ulverstone and the quaint Penguin – all have their own intrigue.
The Tarkine is a rich tapestry of natural and cultural diversity, wild yet accessible. A vast emotive region of the last expanse of temperate rain forest in the world today. The rugged and tumultuous coastline echoes a formidable shipwreck history. Forest windfall timbers are carried down in the inky black, tannin rich, flood waters of the Arthur and Pieman rivers – rivers that reflect the antiquity of their forest canopy.
One can venture out and explore Tasmania’s iconic treasures – World Heritage Wilderness Regions, and pristine National Parks. An easy day trip to Cradle Mountain National Pack. Rocky Cape and Circular Head are within easy reach as is the evocative Tarkine, the magnificent isolation of the West Coast, returning invigorated at days end to the comforts of the Barn’s luxury accommodation. Tasmania will surely seduce you with its beauty.
On both the Arthur and Pieman Rivers daily cruises venture into the forest depths and there are many guided or self drive/bike/kayak/walking option to explore. Extensive information is also available to help plan a weekend, a month, or be seduced – a life-time of discovery, through Discover Tasmania. Wynyard also has its own visitors centre.
