Forest Walks Lodge - Jackeys Marsh

Book your stay



Forest Walks Lodge offers comfortable and affordable guesthouse style accommodation on the edge of the Tasmanian World Heritage Area near Launceston and Deloraine.

A stay at the lodge combines the comfort of a modern solar designed house with the ability to walk out the door into spectacular wild forest. Take a guided walk with one of Tasmania's well known forest ecologists.

You can also dine in with restaurant quality meals. All meals are offered in house using local and organic ingredients where possible.

Two spacious bedrooms are available with stunning mountain views. Tea and coffee is available to guests at all times as well as between meal snacks.

We have free WIFI.

While staying at Forest Walks Lodge you can take a guided walk, do some fishing on Huntsman Lake or take some of the great walks in the Meander region. At Forest Walks Lodge we are dedicated to the enhancement and protection of the natural environment and the promotion of the best that Tasmania has to offer.

Through our guided walks we improve our guests' understanding of the evolutionary history and ecology of Tasmania's forests. We have built our ecolodge in the beautiful valley of Jackeys Marsh adjacent to some spectacular old growth forest which we encourage our guests to visit. Many of these forests have been protected for their conservation and natural heritage values.
