A c.d. player and radio is provided, accommodation is TV. free. You will be surrounded by wildlife of all sorts, including birds, mammals, arthropods and reptiles. Water comes from natural sources and can be tannin coloured to varying degrees at different times of year. Tannin is the same natural chemical that makes tea brown.

BUTTONGRASS RETREAT: 308 Lune River Road, Ida Bay, Far South Tasmania 7109
The southernmost accommodation in Australia, this self contained eco cabin is set in a native grassland with stunning views in two directions. 15 minutes from Dover, 90 minutes south from Hobart. A great base for exploring Dover, Southport, Hastings Caves, Ida Bay Railway and Cockle Creek. If staying at BGR, be sure to phone us 03 6264 2233 at least 24 hours before arrival to get your key code.

HUON RIVER COUNTRY COTTAGE: 4156 Huon Highway Castle Forbes Bay, Tasmania 7109
Overlooking the Huon River, between Huonville and Geeveston, Tasmania, is a comfortable little farmhouse. Huon River Cottage offers convenience and privacy. Immersed in a pretty cottage garden in a rural landscape with views through the native treeline to the Huon River below. The adjacent pastures are dotted with farm animals by day and native visitors by night. If staying at HRC , be sure to phone us 03 6264 2233 at least 24 hours before arrival to get your key code.

Huon Bush Retreats and Buttongrass Retreat are eco-responsible. Electricity is from renewable sources and stored in batteries. Although there is plenty for sensible use, if you totally waste it (such as leaving lights turned on all day), the batteries will be exhausted until the next sunshine. If your idea of a great holiday is to needlessly add to the CO2 pollution of the planet by leaving your lights on all day, you might prefer a non-eco-responsible city hotel.
