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.

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.

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.

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.
