Stay high above the Tasmanian wildernessGoulds Country, Tasmania
Reach new heights in the Tasmanian wilderness at The Keep. This Scottish-style fortress sits on top of a 650-metre-high rocky pinnacle with 360-degree views of the Blue Tier Forest Reserve. Check in here, and it’s just you and the curious wildlife.
Fill the huge granite bathtub set into boulders as the sun sets and watch for shooting stars or the beams from the Eddystone Point Lighthouse as you lie back and soak. Walk to Tasmania’s largest myrtle tree just 10 minutes away, have a picnic at a nearby creek or stoke the outdoor fireplace, grab a deck of cards and just relax.
The stone dwelling, originally built in the early 2010s but recently refurbished to completely update the interiors, is set in a hundred hectares of bush, about a 45-minute drive from St Helens. Mobile reception is patchy, as well, all of which means this is the place to escape to for a few days if you want to retreat from the world and completely relax. Pack a book, fill the esky, lace up your hiking boots and get back to nature.
