CAPE CRU­SADE

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - News -

The first pri­vate lodges in Tas­man Na­tional Park, in Tas­ma­nia’s south-east, are mod­els of low-im­pact beauty and eco-ar­chi­tec­ture: Tas­ma­nian hard­wood, so­lar and wind power, state-of-the-art re­cir­cu­lat­ing show­ers. But all eyes are on the great out­doors. “We wanted to cre­ate lodges that had all the com­forts of a bou­tique ho­tel,” says Tas­ma­nian Walk­ing Com­pany co-owner Brett God­frey, “but the star at­trac­tion had to be the wilder­ness it­self.” God­frey and busi­ness part­ner Rob Sher­rard have added the Three Capes Lodge Walk to their port­fo­lio, which in­cludes the Bay of Fires Lodge Walk, Wine­glass Bay

Sail Walk and Cra­dle Moun­tain Huts Walk. Lodge walk­ers with guides tackle the 46-kilo­me­tre Three Capes pub­lic track by day and spend nights at two pri­vate lodges, de­signed by Syd­ney ar­chi­tect An­drew Burns. Com­forts in­clude Tas­ma­nian wines and treat­ments in a re­lax­ation pav­il­ion with an out­door bath. The four-day Three Capes Lodge Walk op­er­ates year-round and costs from $2,790 per per­son. taswalk­ingco.com.au
