I had a fabulous stay at Huon Bush Retreats for my quarterly personal retreat. It was amazingly quiet & peaceful - just what I was looking for ! The outdoor kitchen & lounge area was really useful for me as I was in a tent. I just chilled on the couch by the fire most of the day. The easy access to the bush walks was amazing.

Felt very welcome. Pamela and Michael were very friendly and helpful. Site felt very private nestled in the bush. Birds and other wildlife in abundance. Great walks. Great place “to charge one’s batteries”.

Camping in unspoiled bush
We absolutely loved our time at Huon bush retreat. Both Pamela and Michael are gracious hosts, thank you for sharing your beautiful spot. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in Tasmania. The outdoor bath was the cherry on top as were the numerous bush walks. Highly recommend. Having wallabies with joeys and pademelons also with joeys sharing our space was an experience in its self. Seeing a masked owl flying through was also amazing.

Site 2 - Self-Contained Studio Cabin
The check in process was easy with just picking up a paper map and no key exchange. We found our cabin on the beautiful property after the steep drive in. And we stayed in the big tree cabin. It is such a cosy cabin and the view across the landscape and trees is really relaxing especially if you are relaxing in the bathtub. The place is made super special with all the apparent wildlife surrounding you and also the soothing sound of the waterfall/creek and the walks that start from the property. It feels like you are a world away from hobart city which is actually only 30 minutes away. Theres also a woolworths not far and cooking facilities at the cabin, so stop by and come prepared so you dont have to leave.

Site 2 - Campervan Site
The property was beautiful. There are a range of walks of varying distances available at your doorstep, and wildlife that comes to visit at night. We stayed at a campervan site which was nice and level, surrounded on three sides by bush and was and convenient to the toilets. Pamela and Michael were lovely to deal with, and we really enjoyed the gourmet platter they put together for us. We would stay again and have already recommended it to a friend!

Beautiful space, great amenities!
First, I'd like to say that the space and location is beautiful. It's a truly spectacular part of the Huon Valley and the work you have done on the trails and campground is top notch. The amenities are also excellent (best composting toilet system I have seen to date). That said, I believe the Hipcamp booking system is a bit misleading. Below is the image that is used to advertise the camp sites. I have also attached an image of the campsite location that I chose through the booking system. Hipcamp lists this as 'campsite 1'. The "across from the kitchen spot" is not listed anywhere (this is where we stayed). I was told on leaving that this spot is considered 'overflow'. I feel this spot is disappointing at best; every other spot is secluded in the bush with natural views that don't include that camp kitchen. Privacy is advertised and this spot does not offer it. It's also a challenging spot because between the swing and the kitchen, we are only able to rest around the hours that others will let us. We're up with the first banging of pans and can sleep when all the diners have cleaned up. Yes, I made a mistake with booking for one guest, but I sorted it out when addressed. Ultimately, it feels like best practice to advise someone when you are allocating them a less-than-advertised overflow camp site. This also may just be a limitation with the Hipcamp booking system. Again, aside from the individual spot we were given, the Huon Bush Retreat is a wonderful space.

Private, unpowered camping.
This is a beautiful place to camp. Hosts Michael and Pamela where great. Our site was very private, with loads of visiting pademelons, little birds and possums. We absolutely loved the the thought and sincere recognition to our First Nations Peoples. The walk to Mt Misery, was well maintained and well worth the effort. We also enjoyed an outdoor hot bath. As an added bonus Michael’s interest in Aura Australis.

Wonderful bush retreat
A wonderful location and exceptional hosts. We lived our tent licstii, nestled in a stunning location, without another camper in sight. Pamela and Michael were wonderful hosts. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were excellent. We can't wait to return.

Great spot
Excellent location. Clean and tidy amenities. Quiet and peaceful sites with lots of privacy. Didn't use the kitchen much but was very well set up. Everything within walking distance. The walks were an added bonus. Beautiful Bush Bath.

Awesome place. Its like being in your own personal forest setting with a variety of walks right on your doorstep. Good clean facilities, including showers that were hot all times of the day. Peace and quiet to the max. Loads of wildlife to see. Perfect. Highly recommend.

Site 1 - Campervan Site
Absolutely loved our stay, the host was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a campervan site in our rooftop tent, the area was private, great place to have a fire, plenty of space & the area was very clean. The host is very passionate about his business and will accommodate you well. 5/5! Thanks
