The Freycinet Peninsula is surrounded by some of the most pristine waters in the world, with ancient granite mountains rising from the sea, sprinkled with native bushland and home to a variety of wildlife, and ringed by vast stretches of sandy beaches relatively untouched by man.
Saffire Freycinet overlooks the Hazard Mountains and the Freycinet National Park. The luxury resort has 20 suites. From each of the rooms guests have an enviable view across Great Oyster Bay to the Freycinet Peninsula and beyond. Freycinet Lodge features 60 cabins nestled in bushland, within the National Park.
These eco-accredited cabins have one or two rooms and there are also exclusive couples’ retreats. The Lodge provides an opportunity to learn about the local environment, how to conserve by using resources wisely and help local communities. There is also a range of tours for guests to book through the Lodge, from sea kayaking, offshore cruises, scenic flights, quad bike adventure rides and local food and wine tasting. Freycinet Lodge has been recognised as one of Australia’s leading and most innovative ecotourism projects, with Advanced Eco Certification from Ecotourism Australia.
