The Experience
Situated in the short walks capital of Tasmania, and located minutes from world heritage-listed wilderness, Cedar Cottage Meander is a hand-built eco cabin perfect for couples and small groups.

With a chef’s kitchen, fire pit and grill, plus exclusive access to an organic kitchen garden, Veg Mahal, you can enjoy fresh Tasmanian produce exactly how you like it.

Unwind in the cedar hot tub on your private deck overlooking the mountains and watch the stars blink into life. Experience slow living at its finest.

The Cottage
Furnished with warm Tasmanian speciality woods like deep red myrtle and black-hearted sassafras, Cedar Cottage Meander is a unique and beautiful space.

You’ll find an appreciation of craft everywhere you look, from the old mortice and tenon joints, to the hand-made Huon pine kitchen, the post-and-rail fences made from hand-split hardwood, to the block-printed cushion and yukata robe fabrics.

We’ve decorated the cottage with relaxed comfort in mind, using natural materials like wood, linen, cotton, jute, down and wool. There’s a little bit of quirk and a whole heap of style.

Enjoy the guest library with a focus on contemporary Tasmanian authors, as well as coffee table, art and hardcover books, including publications from the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). We also have plenty of books to appeal to foodies by authors such as Analiese Gregory, Sarah Glover and Matthew Evans.

We haven’t scrimped on technology, this might be the bush, but you can still enjoy fast unlimited WI-FI, smart lock entry, multiple USB charging points, a BOSE bluetooth speaker, smart TV with complementary streaming, and programmable electric blankets.

Things to see and do
Located an hour’s drive from both Launceston and Devonport, Cedar Cottage Meander sits at the foot of kooparoona niara / the Great Western Tiers in Central-North Tasmania. Known as the “mountains of our spirits’ to the local Pallitorre people, this area encompasses wild wilderness like the virgin rainforests found in the Meander Forest Reserve, to the alpine moorland gardens on the escarpments above.

We are close to the Central Plateau Conservation Area, the Walls of Jerusalem National Park, the iconic Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park, the Mole Creek Karst National Park, tulampanga / Alum Cliffs and Liffey Falls. Enjoy fly fishing, bush walking, river sledding, horse riding, canyoning, caving, cultural tours and other adventures.

Food lovers have plenty of choice to stock up at Launceston’s famous Harvest Market, the Cradle to Coast Tasting Trail and the Deloraine-Latrobe Produce Loop, with fresh Tasmanian produce, cheese, ethical meat, smoked salmon, craft beer, cider and boutique wineries and distilleries at your fingertips.

Deloraine with its cafes, arts, crafts, and village charm is 15 minutes away by car. We recommend the Deloraine Deli, Frank & Lotti, and Found in Earth for great coffee and treats. The Bush Inn, Red Brick Road Ciderworks and Distillery, and The Empire Hotel are great spots for a drink and a nibble.

Further afield, there’s the Wandering Trout Crafty Ales Bar & Grill and Hazelbrae Hazelnuts.
