A Protected Area on Private Land (subject to a Conservation Covenant), Base Camp Tasmania abounds in native Tasmanian wildlife (we are registered Wildlife Carers) including Pademelons, Bennetts Wallabies, Echidnas, Wombats, Spotted Quolls, and Brushtail Possums. We offer accommodation for a range of budgets and comforts for families, couples, groups and singles. Whilst staying with us, try your hand at trout fishing in the Plenty and Derwent rivers; visit the nearby Salmon Ponds; visit the wonderful waterfalls at Mt Field National Park; marvel at the forest giants in the Styx Valley; journey into the past and explore the Port Arthur convict prison on the Tasman Peninsula; or sample some of the excellent wines amongst the vineyards and wineries of Coal River Valley.

great place to stay if you're spending time bushwalking around Tasmania. the facilities (showers, full kitchen, laundry) are great, and Alana and Steve are friendly and helpful hosts. the abundance of wildlife on the property (mainly pademelons and wallabies) is a lovely experience. overall a great place to base yourself while exploring the south and east of Tasmania

Steve was a great host, helpful and showing animal feedings etc… I would definitely recommend. Access was a bit tight but manageable. Stunning location

Beautiful sanctuary
Steve and Alana are terrific hosts and their property is a beautiful and peaceful sanctuary for animals and humans alike. The shared facilities including kitchen/dining/lounge, laundry, showers are excellent and clean. We were tent camping so didn’t use the family cabin or dorm cabins but on inspection they looked great. Steve and Alana are passionate about their sanctuary and our kids enjoyed talking to them and helping to feed the resident wallabies and pademelons there. Would stay again. Recommended.
