Award Winner: Rocky Hills Retreat

Shared by

Looking for the perfect place to spend a honeymoon getaway, with amazing scenic views of the bay? Then you can't go wrong by booking a stay with Tasmania's Rocky Hills Retreat, nestled in acres of bush in Swansea.

The retreat was recently announced as a gold winner of the Unique Accommodation award at the 2012 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, and it's not hard to see why with the intimate hideaway sitting up on a hill that overlooks the spectacular Great Oyster Bay and Maria Island on Tasmania's immaculate east coast.

Indulge in a touch of luxury amongst the sprawling wild nature of the island, watching the sun rise from the morning deck as you tuck into King Island yogurt, fresh fruit and muesli for breakfast.

If the night is warm and balmy, take advantage of the gorgeous Huon Pine bath tub located out on the evening deck!

Pour yourself a glass of Tasmania's signature cool-climate wine and climb into the welcoming warm presence of the outdoor bathtub – and did we mention you can get optimal sea views from here too?

Other indulgences of the retreat include seclusion and privacy among 250 acres of Tasmanian bush, a fully equipped Art Studio located only a few seconds away, a bathroom equipped with a skylight so you can look up to the treetops while you shower, a luxurious king size bed, gourmet provedore and mini bar, and much more!

The Rocky Hills Retreat offers an amazing experience of Tasmania that any visitor must treat themselves to, capturing all that makes the island great.

You can also visit some of Tasmania's other treasures, such as Kate's Berry Farm located nearby, offering outstanding cool-climate berries and supplying a number of creations including jams, chutneys, jellies, sauces, marmalades and special handcrafted chocolates.

Pop in for a bite at Kate's Just Desserts Cafe to treat yourself to hot crisp Belgian waffles served with poached berries, freshly baked hot scones with Kate's signature jams and freshly whipped pure cream and fabulous fruit pies with fresh local fruit.
