Flinders Island Exclusive Eco-Comfort Camps

Sustainable and idyllic beach-side walkers retreat

Enjoy extra creature comforts on our exclusive Flinders Island Walking Adventure, staying at this new Eco-Comfort Camp tucked among a natural coastal setting that includes private access to the beach at your doorstep, where you can enjoy your morning coffee or evening drink. 

Sleep under the Tasmanian night sky, in a spacious two-person safari-style tent which is elevated on a platform with an entrance deck to allow for a clean sleeping space, and somewhere to sit and enjoy the peace. In the same unique and innovative design as the sleeping tents, a permanent kitchen and undercover dining area allow for a panoramic spot - a perfect place for a chat about the day’s events and a hearty evening meal with your fellow trekkers.

Enjoy a hot shower in the rustic bathroom facilities, after a long day of hiking across the island.

This innovative, comfortable Eco-comfort Camp features:

Flinders Island is one of the most remote – yet accessible – destinations in Australia, packed with diverse walking trails and colourful wildlife, and is rich in Indigenous Australian history.  Take your Flinders Island walking experience in Tasmania to a whole new level by enjoying the full benefits of our stylish new Eco-Comfort Camps, set in an idyllic coastal location and exclusive to our travellers.  Our scenic and private seaside camp will come complete with upgraded safari-style tents and raised beds; as well as a new dining and communal platform where you can relax and enjoy a delicious meal, a drop of wine and some good old banter with your group in a cosy atmosphere.  Like all our guided active holidays, you'll enjoy full-service camping value; and now with extra creature comforts on Flinders Island, you'll be even more refreshed for the next day's walk.

Flinders Eco-Comfort Camp features & facilities

COMMUNAL AREA

The innovative triangular structure functions as a multipurpose living, kitchen and dining area. It also offers three unique hexagonal weatherproof areas that provide comfortable spaces for meals and relaxing in any conditions. All decking is made from sustainable, recycled composite timber decking to minimise impact on the environment.

It's a perfect place to get to know your guides and fellow trekkers. Similarly to the sleeping tents, the communal area features a clear roof to admire the Tasmanian night sky.

After relaxing on comfortable raised stretches with thick sleeping mats in the safari style tent, take a seat on the elevated entrance deck and enjoy the peace and quiet of Flinders Island coastal wilderness - followed up by a 50m stroll through your private beach access to swim in the crystal waters of Flinders beach.

Food is mainly sourced from local providers and carefully selected, stored and transported so as to maximise freshness and quality. 

Provided we are advised in advance of your departure we are able to cater for vegetarian diets and can assist with medically recommended diets (allergies and intolerances).

SHOWER TENTS

The hot showers give trekkers a welcome way to wash away the sweat of a good days walk across the Island. Hot water is heated using a “Donkey” hot water boiler - an efficient hot water system and an economical way to warm water. 

Trekkers have a 9 Litre bucket of warm water to use in our shower tents, which allows for warm-hot showers that run for 2 – 2 1/2 minutes.
