This vacation rental’s impeccable location beside the coast and amid nature, at the edge of the splendid Tarkine Forest makes it abundant in entertaining outdoor activities. The apartment has absolute river-frontage to Arthur River on its north, sunny side.

The river offers a wide array of aquatic possibilities. Guests can try their luck at reeling in a big catch or set off up-river deep into the magnificent Tarkine Forest in a hired kayak or outboard motorboat to explore the area from a different perspective. Also, catered half day guided boat tours depart from the Arthur River Village daily for a 10 mile journey up the river on the characterful "George Robinson" except in the winter.

For a change of scenery, visitors can soak up some sun on the warm sand of a nearby beach and then take a refreshing swim to cool down. The coastline is also a premier location to catch a big wave and ride it to the shore or to observe local birds.

Glampers exploring the area should definitely not pass up the opportunity to visit the Edge of the World, which is conveniently located under a five-minute drive from the property’s grounds. Here, guests can marvel at the dramatic rugged landscape and impressive crashing waves against the shore. Moreover, nature enthusiasts can take their pick of a myriad of state reserves and conservation areas nearby. As they take a leisurely stroll along the scenic walking paths while being fully immersed in nature, their stresses will simply melt away. It is also an opportune moment to witness the emblematic Tasmanian devil, as well as other diverse wildlife that inhabit the zone.
