Feel worlds away from everything with a stay at Ettrick Rocks, a luxurious retreat overlooking the great Southern Ocean, on King Island’s wild coastline. Three stunning self-contained retreats are positioned to ensure maximum privacy while enjoying jaw-dropping ocean views from floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows. From every room in your retreat, you will be treated to some of Tasmania’s most sublime coastal landscapes – with a pair of binoculars provided, so you can gaze out at distant fishing boats or soaring birdlife. Feel at home cooking up a storm in the kitchen, complete with state-of-the-art appliances and a mirrored splashback reflecting the rugged surrounds. Gather for meals around the dining table, watching as wallabies hop across the scrub right outside your window, and wake up to the sounds of the ocean, visible via a stunning picture window in your bedroom.
It will be tempting to spend the whole time inside your retreat, but just outside your door, the wonders of King Island await. An array of secret sandy coves and rockpools, including Ettrick Beach and Millers Bay, are just a hop and skip away. Golfing enthusiasts have two world-renowned courses to choose from – Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes – while foodies can’t pass up a visit to King Island Dairy (only a 20-minute drive away). Meanwhile, iconic attractions including Seal Rocks, Calcified Forest and Cape Wickham Lighthouse are all within easy driving distance.
