Buttongrass Retreat

Retreat to nature and escape from the hassles of modern life.

The southernmost in all Australia. Social distanced accommodation, no crowds here, just you and your friend or family. Self contained family accommodation in this comfortable eco-cabin. Set in a wide open buttongrass moorland, the huge deck has spectacular views to the sometimes snow-capped Adamsons Peak and Mount La Perouse. Enjoy the spectacular starscape or maybe even the Southern Aurora. The perfect base for a couple, small family or two singles for a few days to explore Hastings Caves and Cockle Creek.

Important note: This is a place to retreat to nature and escape from the hassles of modern life for a few days. Get away from television, phones and 240 volt electricity and enjoy some peace and quiet. 12 volt solar electricity operates the lights, music and fridge. There is usually limited 240 volt electricity, enough to charge a mobile phone or camera or run a laptop computer. CPap machines have been found to run successfully but as each machine is different, we make no guarantee that your machine will operate all night.



Located in Ida Bay, close to Hastings Caves, Cockle Creek, Southport Tavern. Under 2 hours from Hobart.
