Forest Walks Lodge offers comfortable and affordable guesthouse style accommodation on the edge of the Tasmanian World Heritage Area near Launceston and Deloraine. Take a guided walk with one of Tasmania's well known forest ecologists. A stay at the lodge combines the comfort of a modern solar designed house with the ability to walk out the door into spectacular wild forest. You can also dine in with restaurant quality meals. All meals are offered in house using local and organic ingredients where possible. Two spacious bedrooms are available with stunning mountain views. Tea and coffee is available to guests at all times as well as between meal snacks. We have free WIFI. While staying at Forest Walks Lodge you can take a guided walk, do some fishing on Huntsman Lake or take some of the great walks in the Meander region.
At Forest Walks Lodge we are dedicated to the enhancement and protection of the natural environment and the promotion of the best that Tasmania has to offer. We offer delicious 3 course meals accompanied by hand picked Tasmanian wines. Through our guided walks we improve our guests' understanding of the evolutionary history and ecology of Tasmania's forests. We have built our ecolodge in the beautiful valley of Jackeys Marsh adjacent to some spectacular old growth forest which we encourage our guests to visit. Many of these forests have been protected for their conservation and natural heritage values. We have a small library of natural history books and lifestyle magazines. Wi Fi available.


Forest Walks Lodge is less than an hour from Launceston and Devonport airports and the Spirit of Tasmania ferry terminal. From either Launceston or Devonport you drive to Deloraine. From Deloraine follow the signposts to Meander, 16kms, and turn left at the Meander township sign. Turn right at the next turn onto Jackeys Marsh Rd and follow this road into the valley. Take the second turn left which is the continuation of Jackeys Marsh Rd and follow the signs to Forest Walks Lodge.
