Your Host Maree Jenkins welcomes you to the Tarkine Wilderness Lodge. By developing the Tarkine Wilderness Lodge we believe we are helping to protect this piece of Tasmania by sharing its endless beauty with you. The Tarkine Wilderness Lodge started construction in 2003.
It was an ambitious undertaking by the owners Maree Jenkins and Richard Summers, one they painstakingly worked through to create this magnificent structure. With all the big timbers used, the angles at which it was all put together one can say resembles a jigsaw nightmare, but this is what sets this Lodge apart from others, its uniqueness.
"Having lived in Phantom Valley on the edge of the Tarkine for over 20 years, we have become very in tune with its magical surrounds. We look forward to sharing this beautiful wilderness with our guests and visitors. To us the Tarkine Wilderness Lodge is all about, sunsets, serenity, stars, rainforest, wildlife and local produce.
Rain water (some of the cleanest in the world!) is collected from the roof and supplies all internal taps, showers and vanities. Dam water is used for the surrounding garden and all toilets in the Lodge. The Lodge utilizes Solar Power as its main source of electricity, it is renewable and silent and also reduces our green house emissions. A gas powered generator is used as back up. We are proud to promote our Lodge as eco friendly and have achieved our Advanced Eco Tourism Certified with Eco Tourism Australia.
Instead of planting trees which take 25-30 years before half the carbon emissions are actually offset, we have invested in renewable energy, such as the solar array which offset your carbon emissions straight away. Rather than try to offset the carbon emissions from food we have a policy of buying as much of our food & wine from local suppliers and growers as well as growing our own organic produce on site which guests will enjoy in their evening meals.
The Lodge all to yourself
Imagine a superbly appointed Lodge, constructed from beautiful Tasmanian timber, nestled on 200 acres of privately owned land within this majestic wilderness. Guests are offered complete seclusion from the outside world and can choose from a range of experiences. Whether you want to spend a luxury weekend, with fine Tasmanian produce and wines, where we cater to your every whim, or want a wilderness adventure where you cook your own meals, we can personalise your stay to suit your needs.
The Tarkine Wilderness Lodge offers guests the exclusive use of the Lodge and facilities including 3 luxurious suites with ensuite and beautiful vistas of the surrounding rainforest. Tarkine Wilderness Lodge understands privacy therefore our guests will never share the Lodge with other guests. Your Host Maree, resides a short distance from the lodge and is always available to cater to your needs.
