Unlike any other glamping experience in Australia, The Cove Tasmania is redefining the idea, melding the best of luxurious resorts and high-end campgrounds into a unique, adults-only location. The fresh scent of salt spray greets you as you step onto your private deck to meet the morning – if you’re lucky, you’ll also spy whales frolicking off Cheviot Beach or little penguins coming ashore. Built sensitively on a wind-buffeted basalt cliffside, The Cove is a unique Slow Stay where conservation and luxury sit comfortably together. From the comfort of the 13 villas, chalets and A-frames that sit gently on this working family farm, you can explore the duality of this wild landscape at your own pace. Join a farm tour to see ducks, chickens, Highland cows, alpacas and mini goats roaming across the hillside pastures and small-scale crops. Strap on your boots and walk the 15 acres of farmland and coastline, where you’ll see a plethora of wildlife amongst 3000 native trees – all part of a tree planting program. Or you could head out on an adventure with The Friends of Lillico Penguins to meet the enigmatic wee birds, before a private chef whips you up a gourmet feast. Perfect for couples or retreat groups that don’t want to forsake luxurious touches, The Cove also offers spa services and access to the lodge-like Alexander Centre. After days spent exploring Tassie’s stunning North West, gather by the fire as you sip something from the well-stocked honesty fridge.
