The stunning natural beauty surrounding Freycinent Lodge in Tasmania is now paralleled by the addition of luxurious and modern pavilions, rooms and suites

Following the recent completion of the first stages of the Freycinet Renewal Project, Freycinet Lodge has unveiled three new accommodation spaces, elevating the long-established lodge in one of Tasmania’s most beautiful – and popular – regions. Coastal Pavilions, Mountain Terrace rooms and the Lodge King suites have been added to the lodge’s accommodation offering, while the receptions areas, lounge, bar and dining areas in the main Lodge building have also been updated.

The new Coastal Pavilions seek to draw the spectacular surrounding wilderness in while maintaining the highest quality of comfort. The buildings themselves are inspired by their location, with natural timber finishes and curved walls (there aren’t any corners in the rooms), paying homage to the weathered pink granite of the Freycinet Peninsula.

The updated Mountain Terrace rooms are contemporary, spacious, and filled with natural light. The king size bed, leather lounge and outdoor bathtub set the scene for relaxing and taking in the view and surrounding bushland, while the rooms’ double-height glass walls offer glimpses of The Hazards mountain range’s pink granite peaks. In a conscious effort to update the lodge with an ecologically-friendly focus, the Mountain Terrace rooms also include improvements to water storage and reuse, while the Coastal Pavilions were constructed off-site and then transported to Freycinet in order to have minimal impact on the environment.

The Lodge King is one of Freycinet Lodge’s most spectacular suites, boasting views of Great Oyster Bay and The Hazards mountains. Located within the main Lodge building, this spacious, contemporary room offers guests their own private balcony, a king bed, large ensuite bathroom and skylight to ensure natural light.

RACT developer and tourism entrepreneur Brett Torossi worked with the innovative Tasmanian-based design and architecture team Liminal Studio to design and carry-out the Freycinet Renewal Project. With a brief to pay homage to the character of the National Park the lodge nestles into, the architects drew inspiration from the forms of coastal granite rock formations.

Freycinet Lodge is located within Freycinet National Park on Tasmania’s eastern coastline on the water’s edge overlooking Great Oyster Bay. The region is known for its spectacular beaches, including Wineglass Bay, its many nature trails and its abundant gourmet food and cool-climate wine.
