Eco-conscious accommodation in Freycinet Peninsula

Architecturally designed and built using almost 100% Tasmanian-grown timber, with custom joinery created by Swansea’s Danny Morrison, Still at Freycinet sleeps up to 10 guests perched on the dunes of Sandpiper Beach. This eco-stay epitomises Scandi luxe, but its architectural lines belie a cosy heart. The pared-back Nordic aesthetic is applied with a deft hand across three generous bedrooms (all with ensuites) and open-plan living areas, where warmth and slow intentionality meet calm minimalism. The soul-filling cosiness continues in every corner of the lodge, from sinking into the charcoal bath to gathering around the fire pit. Or doing the “Nordic cycle” between the sauna and outdoor shower – just as part of the ‘sauna ritual’.

This eco-conscious haven offers various activities for adventure seekers and those looking to unwind. Explore the Freycinet Peninsula’s rugged beauty through guided hikes, kayaking along crystal-clear waters, or stargazing under the Southern Hemisphere’s brilliant night sky. Or stay in and relax with yoga, meditation and sound bath sessions, massage treatments, or simply lounging on the private beach. Private chef-prepared meals and pop-up picnics are also on the menu.

A Life Unhurried

It’s the latest addition to Life Unhurried, part of its curated edit of Slow Stays. The online platform features Slow Stays from Australia and New Zealand. It will soon add overseas stay to its collection of boutique accommodations handpicked for their design aesthetic as much as their sustainability ethos. Alongside slow travel inspiration and conversations with people living unhurried lives. A book of the same name – where you’ll find 50 of the best stays – focuses on off-grid, sustainable and slow luxury properties in some of Australia’s most underrated destinations.
