Escape to Baragoola Retreat, a secluded hideaway nestled amidst the eucalypts of South Arm Peninsula, an area of great natural beauty known to locals as Paradise Peninsula. This private sanctuary offers stunning water views from every room and peeks of the iconic Mount Wellington in the distance. Surrounded by natural beauty paired with deluxe amenities, Baragoola Retreat is the perfect place to take some time out to reset and reconnect with Mother Nature.
Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the sparkling tidal bay and surrounding forests, with a backdrop of the open ocean and southern mountains. The open-plan living space, with high ceilings and bifold doors, is the perfect spot to enjoy a spectacular sunset. On winter nights, enjoy the warmth of a crackling log fire and lose yourself in a book from the library. Sip on a complimentary glass of cuvée, savour the delicious local shortbread, or brew your choice of loose-leaf teas.
The bedrooms at Baragoola Retreat are a seamless blend of modern comforts and natural elements. Enjoy the embrace of a heated blanket in the king room, pick your perfect profile from the library of pillows, and listen to the distant crashing waves. Step onto the balcony to greet the morning and indulge in a cup of freshly brewed coffee while taking in the panoramic scenery. A portion of the deck provides shelter, allowing you to enjoy the landscape and stay warm and dry even when it’s raining.
The surrounding bushland is brimming with wildlife. You’ll likely hear the light tread of possums on the deck or catch the expectant gaze of a magpie. The resident bandicoot family is quite audacious, too. There have even been seals hauled out on the beach, visible from the deck. Meander along the tranquil Tangara Trail, directly accessible from the retreat, accompanied by soothing sounds of lapping water and birdsong. Tasmania’s abundant and diverse nature is what makes us so unique, and there’s a bounty of it here.
Our southern state boasts some of the purest air on Earth. This lack of pollution creates a canvas of the deepest black, framing a magnificent nighttime display of vivid stars. Goats Bluff lookout is just a two-minute drive from the retreat, a renowned vantage point for the Southern Lights, aka the Aurora Australis.
Discover the villages of Lauderdale, Cremorne, Clifton, South Arm and Opossum Bay. Picture this: charming local cafés serving up decadent treats, secluded white sand beaches begging to be explored, vibrant Sunday markets packed with delights. The Hill Street Grocer in Lauderdale is a Tassie treasure trove of fresh seasonal produce, gourmet cheeses and deli goods.
Imagine all this serenity only 30 minutes’ drive from Hobart. The historic town of Richmond is just 35 kilometres away, and the celebrated Coal River Valley winery region is closer still. At Baragoola Retreat, you can truly have it all.
