Overlooking the magnificent Hazards Mountains and the Freycinet Peninsula in eastern Tasmania, Saffire Freycinet is a stylish sanctuary of 20 low-rise suites and pavilions. Guests can immerse themselves in a wealth of guided experiences in these rich surroundings, donning waders at an oyster farm in the wetlands, extracting honey from the hives of a nearby apiary or visiting a free-range Tasmanian devil enclosure to observe the island's most famous species. Back at the lodge, go kayaking in the waters of Muirs Beach wetland, fishing off the shore or perhaps slow the pace with some pampering treatments in the spa.
Saffire’s restaurant, Palate, is considered one of the finest in Australia, so dinner here is a real event. Local produce - mussels from Great Oyster Bay, grass-fed beef, seasonal vegetables – feature strongly on all menus, and nightcaps can be enjoyed by the fire in the lounge, gazing out at the inky night sky.
