Three Capes Lodge Walk unveiled in Tasmania

The Tasmanian Walking Company (TWC) has announced  the official opening of the much-anticipated Three Capes Lodge Walk; a four-day, 46km fully-guided experience on the Three Capes Track. 

The experience is the newest addition to the Great Walks of Australia collection.

The walk uses private lodge accommodation within the Tasman National Park.


Co-owner Brett Godfrey said the new walk was a "an important milestone in Australia’s walking landscape and a new era of conservation-based tourism".

"We are thrilled to open Australia’s most innovative and environmentally sustainable lodges, and offer this unparalleled experience of the Three Capes,” he said. “The opening signifies the next phase in our pursuit to redefine the current perception and raise awareness of Australia’s exceptional walking destinations and associated product offerings.”

Andrew McEvoy, chairman of Great Walks of Australia said: “Tasmanian Walking Company has set a new benchmark not just for Australian walking experiences, but for great experiences in general. Three Capes Lodge Walk is world class, with the star of the show being the Tasmanian wilderness.”

The lodges are a reflection of the Tasmanian landscape.
 

Primarily constructed with non-reflective Tasmanian materials, the buildings feature suspended floors to ensure minimal ground disturbance, and separate roof structures that follow the contour of the existing landscape. 

"Lightweight modular sleeping pods are positioned beneath the tree canopy, with all servicing systems, water tanks and battery store hidden in a sub-floor beneath the main level of each building. Advancements include Australia’s first recycling showers. The Swedish design filters and recirculates five litres of shower water and requires 80% less energy consumption.

The innovative off grid renewable energy system has PV solar panels bolstered by Archimedes wind turbines, which are intrinsically safe to bird life. 

The lodges feature 7 double/ optional twin rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and lodge menus have been designed to feature Tasmania’s food and beverage offering, including fine wines and beers, as well as seasonal dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. 

Guides prepare three-course feasts at the end of the walking day, whilst guests settle on a suitable outdoor perch taking in the magnificent sunset with a glass of Tasmanian wine.
