Beautiful cabins in bush setting with open fires, full kitchen for cooking meals, comfortable beds and plenty of room. Plenty of bushwalking available, river is clean and wild, just a short walk away. Best of all is the nighttime wildlife, Tassie Devils and Quolls coming right up to the cabin to feed.

Wooden cabins with an authentic fire place. There is no phone reception for miles but it is full of nature all around. We were lucky to see quolls and Devils within the first 2 nights, and it seemed both pretty much visit the compound each night (just depends when and where you are looking!). Our hosts were friendly and very...

The food is great and the hosts are genial, but you may have to set your expectations a bit for the rest. The keyword is "wilderness," so this is not some upscale ecolodge. The cabins are worn but clean and the decor is funky. But you also don't care because there are Tasmanian Devils and all sorts of wildlife right...

We stayed at this magnificent wildlife refuge about 4 years ago and have talked about it ever since. It is such a beautiful location on the Leven River with so many wild native animals, a roaring fire (pre-prepared for us), cold crisp fresh air, stars and such wonderful welcoming hosts. Watching quolls, devils and a host of other animals just...

We spent 2 nights in April 2016 and the wildlife was exceptional with wild Tasmanian Devils, Spotted-tail Quolls and Pademelons just outside the cabin windows and Platypus swimming in the nearby river. On damp days you might possibly acquire a leech, so take the usual precautions if this would be a problem for you. The accommodation is a bit dated...

Spent 2 nights at Mountain Valley mid December. As very keen wildlife enthusiasts we were really looking forward to our visit and it did not disappoint. Len was welcoming and gave us plenty of information and tips for giving ourselves the best chances of seeing as much as possible. Just before dusk we took a short walk with him down...

If you want to see Platypus, Devils, and Quolls, this is the place to visit. The cabins are quite rustic but clean and comfortable. The small kitchens are well equipped for self catering and the beds are comfortable. The best attraction is the wildlife and birdlife around the property. We stayed in the Blue Wren cottage which was perfect for...

My son was overjoyed with the opportunity to see Tassie Devils in the wild. We could not have had this experience anywhere else. Our host was tremendously knowledgeable. It is quiet and off the beaten track. Cottages are original and built in about the 1970's. Our was quite spacious and had an open fire. Bring your own food as there...

We stayed here for 2 nights the last week of February, 2016. This was the best adventure we had during our trip around Tassie. I stayed in a family cabin with my husband, parents, and our 10 month old. The cabin was large enough for all of us, had a cosy fire and everything we needed. It's a bit rustic...

My husband and I stayed here with our infant daughter in December 2015. If you love remote locations with stunning scenery and abundant wildlife, this is the place for you. We saw quolls, Tasmanian devils, platypus and more. The Leven river is currently warm enough to swim in (due to low water levels). This was a really fun experience. You...
