Awaken to the ever-changing glorious pre-dawn light. Crimson, red, purple and orange colours wash the sky and Great Oyster Bay. Watery greys look equally majestic from Avalon. Look out for the white bellied sea eagle that passes every morning.
Enjoy the delightful breakfast provisions and plan your day or don’t plan your day – just let it evolve. You can simply sit and read the interesting books from the Avalon collection, swim at the secluded beach at the bottom of the path, go fishing, walking, collect shells or – head to Swansea or Freycinet to enjoy the splendour of the east coast.
As the dance of the evening sky unfolds cook yourself up a storm in Avalon’s beautiful kitchen using your own goodies. Or embark on creating a memorable meal using our ‘Wursthaus’ gourmet mini bar provisions; luscious eye fillet steak, cheeses, olives, crusty bread, pasta and sauces all ready for you to prepare.
Light the fire, pour a glass of selected Tasmanian wine and watch the moon rise over the Freycinet Peninsula or gaze at the stars. You can watch a DVD from Avalon’s library or just snuggle up on her lichen inspired orange couch. Sleep in the Stuart Houghton made Tasmanian oak beds, dream the evening away and awaken to the glorious pre-dawn light. Surrendering yourself to the Avalon rhythm is a unique experience

We had a wonderful time enjoying the view particularly in the evening, sitting in front of the fire which warmed the whole living area. The facilities were excellent, particularly the kitchen and the larder was so well stocked. We really liked the art work.
Just returned from a fabulous two night stay at Avalon and cannot recommend it highly enough. From the moment we arrived we knew that this was going to be a special experience and it did not disappoint. Our interstate guests took advantage of its proximity to the world renowned Freycinet National Park and wine tasting at local vineyards while we delighted in staying put soaking in the views and strolling along the private beach, coming together to cook up a storm in the well appointed kitchen and lounge round the open fire in the evening. It was a magical location for seeing the full moon rise over the Freycinet Peninsula and waking next morning to the glorious sunrise. It is impossible to leave without a lingering sense of serenity!
So here we are almost a year from when we stayed and the memory is still etched in our minds as if it happened yesterday. This was more than a holiday. I promise you will never appreciate this review until you open the door yourself to this amazing place; you will simply nod your head and smile realising what we said. The moment we walked in we were taken by the scenery. Immediately we were in another world and never wanted to leave. The retreat is the most amazing place to cook, talk and relax as a family or with friends. Bring nothing but a high expectation, every need is catered for. The property is the most wonderful place to explore. It is now on our agenda to stay each year and we just cant wait till the next time!
An amazing house perched on top of the cliff with superb views across the ocean. The house is tastefully decorated and very cleverly equipped. Everything you could possible need is provided, from DVD's to the wetsuit for a swim at the private beach! Full breakfast is provided and ready to be cooked and some frozen meals and a good range of beverages are provided at reasonable prices so you don;t have to leave Paradise while you are there! It is easy 1 1/2 drive from Hobart and can't be missed as it is directly off the main road. Traffic does however not interrupt the serenity of the place. We unfortunately only stayed one night but loved every second of it!
