At our exclusive rainforest camp, Tiger Ridge, you will feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine, or looking across the deeply forested valley, it’s impossible not to be captivated by the Tarkine’s magnificent story. Below you the myrtles, ferns and burrowing crayfish go on as they always have.
Everywhere you look there is life, but life seems very far away. Join us at Tiger Ridge for some remote rainforest rejuvenation and a four-day experience in a world somehow parallel to our own.
The emphasis for this journey is on enjoying the wilderness in comfort. We spend the days exploring some of the Tarkine’s nearby
landmarks including the surrounds of the magnificent rainforest, the untouched Huskisson River and a unique waterfall at the gateway to the Tarkine. These day walks are completed at a leisurely pace to suit the fitness of the group, carrying only your own lightweight day pack. Enjoy our warm water Japanese-style washroom upon your return to Tiger Ridge at the end of each day. It’s like camping, but with little luxuries.
And food? Our dining table, set among the ferns, transport nightly into a platter of fresh local foods and outstanding Tasmanian wines and spirits. Accompanied by some Tarkine yarns from your guides, it is the perfect way to end a day walking amongst the ancients.
- A unique chance to glamp in the wilds of the Tarkine.
- Stay among the ancient trees and experience luxurious accommodation and food.
- Take daily walks to waterfalls and along secret creeks.
- Participate and contribute to important devil conservation work.
The base camp we have built at Tiger Ridge is truly the jewel in our crown. In the designing and building of this camp we wanted to make sure that we were not taking away from one’s ability to immerse themselves in the rainforest. We felt it was extremely important not to create a hotel atmosphere too similar to our everyday lives.
Tiger Ridge allows our guests to truly get back to nature and escape the unavoidable hustle and bustle we now endure on a daily basis. Tiger Ridge is very comfortable but remains humble, sitting perched upon a beautiful ridge line overseeing the Tarkine.
We would describe our base camp as very luxurious camping. The long house (pictured) is where we all gather for delicious breakfasts, hearty dinners, a few laughs and some interpretation from our guides.
Complete with a gas kitchen, specially designed wood fire, a large dining table and a balcony hanging out over the ridge, the long house has created many memories since its creation.
A large amount of our relaxation time is spent at the long house. However, you are free to retire at any time to your accommodation. Designed to let you feel as much a part of the rainforest as possible, your sleeping quarters are twin share, large, double-room canvas tents spread throughout the rainforest.
Complete with wooden-frame beds and mattresses designed for back support, our regular feedback is that our guests have never had such a good night’s sleep!
All the tents are a very short walk from the facilities, including our Japanese washroom.
We consider our base camp at Tiger Ridge to be as close to being one with the rainforest as is possible while still having little luxuries along the way. It has been designed to be extremely environmentally friendly and to allow our guests to access some of the most remote and untouched landscapes left remaining in the world.
