It's a picturesque 10 minute walk through the light bush and along the cliff top coastline to the neck beach or just five minutes walk down to the sea cave. The main house where we live part time is on the property, but you still have your own space and privacy. Dogs are subject to pre-approval but must be kept under control if our horses or dogs are on the property. The property boundary is fenced so there is plenty of exercise space.

Quoll Hideaway - Bruny Island Bush & Beach camping

1 site · RV, Tent3 acres · Apollo Bay, TAS
"Quoll Hideaway - Bruny Island Bush & Beach Camping" is our slice of paradise and we are looking forward to sharing it with you. The plot is nearly 3 acres and is earmarked conservation land and surrounded by neighbouring conservation land. This is your perfect lunawuni/Bruny Island escape! It is tucked away from the no-through gravel road and surrounded by Australian bush and wildlife with filtered water views of D'Entrecasteaux Channel and 100 m from the beach. It's a tranquil heaven yet so close to all the famous Bruny sites and must dos: Bruny oysters, beer and cheese (why not bring some to the campsite to enjoy?) The Neck, Truganini Lookout + penguins! Cape Queen Elizabeth Track and other hiking trails Adventure Bay and white wallabies, South Bruny, and the Light house When you book our site, you have it all to yourself! Except for sharing it with the wildlife, of course. As the name suggests, there is a family of quolls living on the land and you are very likely to see them! Once dusk arrives and the stars start lighting up the sky, the quolls usually come out to say hi before they start their night activities. Joining the quolls, are the potoroos who are not afraid to come up close and sniff your feet in curiosity. If you are yet to see a quoll and a potoroo in the wild, this is your campsite! Other wildlife includes the endangered Forty Spotted Pardalote and critically endangered Swift Parrots. To access the beach, simply walk through the property to the end of the plot and follow the path. There is an echidna living near the road so keep an eye out for her. The campsite is a perfect spot to see wildlife, and birds, and for photography. On the campsite is a large outdoor kitchen with two sinks. Wait... is there a bathtub? Yes! The bathtub is great for a bush shower (byo solar shower) as the taps are not connected. You must bring your own toilet. Rainwater is available too, we have two tanks! Campfires are allowed but you cannot collect firewood on the property. Please bring your own firewood or add it at the time of booking and we will provide you with firewood for your stay. The land is a conservation area and quolls are known to live in up to 5 nests. They live under the logs and it is an important habitat for the species. We love the quolls and know you will too so please do not disturb their homes. The site is excellent for stargazing once nightfall arrives. Simply BYO a hammock (we have prepared the setup!) and lie down to watch the stars with a glass of red or a hot chocolate. We recommend campervans for the site and it's only suited to self-contained campers leaving no trace behind. Available on-site and free to use are also a director's chair and a table. The kitchen is also equipped with a double sink, dish rack, two buckets, BBQ tools, cutlery, and a dustpan. There is also a cleaning kit with biodegradable spray, hand sanitizer, and soap. There are also a set of caravan/van leveling ramps and chocks for you to freely use. The site is perfect for those wishing to find privacy amongst an otherwise busy Island. Escape the tourists and experience Bruny Island like a local. Questions? Please reach out!

Vegan/Vegetarian Nala Pakana

3 sites · RVs, Tents79 acres · Garden Island Creek, TAS
Nala Pakana is a 79-acre vegetarian/vegan property nestled in native Australian bush roughly one hour's drive from Hobart Tasmania. A wildlife refuge where love and care for the natural environment are of high priority. Verona Sands beach is located at the end of the road, the ferry to Bruny Island half an hour away, and there are ample opportunities to see black cockatoos, wallabies, paddymelons, echidnas, faery wrens and wedge-tailed eagles and so many more, a twitcher's paradise. The small wooden home is off the grid, built by hand over forty years ago with timber from the property and no power tools. There is an extensive permaculture garden enclosed by a corrugated iron fence built from recycled materials. The resident companion animals are three dogs, a cat, four bunnies, three roosters, six chickens, and two goats. Nick and Theresa have one eight year-old daughter who follows a natural learning approach to education, so no school. We spend our time gardening, building from recycled materials, and cooking. Nick is a fantastic bush builder and can mend, and renovate anything out of scraps. Theresa is a very experienced Ayurvedic vegan cook and gardener. Nick spent many years as a school teacher and canvas maker Theresa taught meditation, mindful living, and cooking. Both Nick and Theresa share a great love for the natural world, natural living, and a life informed by intuition. Theresa, Nick, and their daughter are all vegans and Nala Pakana is a vegetarian property that welcomes good dogs who don't need fencing and won't kill the wildlife.
