Newcomer’s to Tasmania’s Accomodation List
In the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age in the Traveller section of the newspaper on March 7, 2008, James Stewart wrote about the new accommodation on offer in Tasmania. His special report featured D’Entrecasteaux at Howden; The Peninsula Tas at Dover; Red Feather Inn at Hadspen; The Priory at Bothwell; The Winged House at Table Cape, and Corinna Wilderness Experience at Corinna.
Here is what James wrote about Corinna:
…last year’s upgrade ofthis old mining settlement in the Tarkine rainforest has transformed a stop–off en route to Strahan into a bonafide destination in its own right. Alongside snug ccommodation in cute miners’ buildings, new solar-powered cottages provide the sort of queen-size beds and modern-rustic living the gold prospectors from days of old could only have dreamed of. Similarly, the ramshackle charm of the rebuilt Tarkine Hotel belies a city-style menu. Yet the focus of the location remains the Tarkine wilderness. The largest temperate rainforest in Australia is now accessible by kayaks and boardwalks as well as by cruise on the historic Arcadia II riverboat. And Cradle Mountain and Strahan are only a day trip away, Corinna’s managers emphasise. Who are they kidding? With no televisions or newspapers and do mobile phone reception without an arduous 20 minute ascent up a hill, who wants to rejoin the real world?
James has captured the mood that visitors are taking advantage of in increasing numbers. An escape to a remote wilderness to rejuvenate or explore, is resonating with people from Tasmania, the mainland and from overseas.
