Step out of your comfort zone without sacrificing the comfort!
Like a 5 Star Hotel under canvas, this is the camping that you do when you want to pretend to be roughing it!
Situated on the banks of the Derwent River just 39 km from Hobart, Truffle Lodge feels like it is a million miles away!
Created in one of Australia's first truffieres, Truffle Lodge boasts absolute river frontage and views to the mountains.
Styled to resemble an Aussie Bush Camp, it sits comfortably in its Australian landscape, with a fun overlay of Tales of the Arabian Nights meets Steampunk .
Our Rooms are tents ... huge, luxurious, African Safari Tents!
All sleeping accommodations are at least 81sqm, large safari tents furnished with ceiling to floor drapes, canvas, leather and recycled wooden furniture, deep luxurious beds, large decks looking out over the river, and separate en suites fitted with handmade wooden bathtubs.
In the Lodge is the Bar and the Dining Room where Breakfasts & Dinners are served. Guests are free to choose communal or separate tables. The Lodge also has a luxurious fireside lounge, decks and a fire pit, and is connected to the tent rooms by a boardwalk.
Signature amenities and bespoke details have been chosen with great deliberation to provide every comfort and care. Furniture and furnishings have been selected with an emphasis on luxurious comfort, and an eye for an elegant rustic design concept reflecting both world-class standards and Truffle Lodge's unique Australian Bush Camp character, but always keeping in mind that this is a rural property requiring practicality and functionality.
We have chosen to leave Truffle Lodge TV-free. Complimentary wifi , games, movies & players are available in The Lodge. There is mobile connectivity throughout the property.
