Where sea thermals dance and eagles soar, Aquila Barn is a truly unique expression of Tasmanian hospitality. A fully self-contained, luxury, eco-friendly, on-farm retreat. A special place with a quiet and meditative ambiance that imparts connected detachment.
Set high on the plateau fields, a century old, elegantly proportioned hay barn has imbibed new life in an award winning, innovative transformation to become a warm and sophisticated destination.
Perfect for a secluded, romantic interlude – a sojourn for two.
Aquila Barn embraces an emotive landscape both gentle and dynamic – calm and tumultuous – ancient and renewed. As an echo of an ancient past the farm foreshore abounds with fossils, and the beautifully assembled ancient Aboriginal stone fish traps etch a timeless past.
The tumbling fields are swathed in colour as poppies burst into bloom – and companionable cows graze – while the surrounding hills celebrate a verdant matrix of seasonal diversity and productivity.
A place for all seasons, whether cocooned from an exhilarating, tempestuous storm or lazing in the last rays of a spectacular sunset on the outer deck, a personal peace resonates.
Aquila Barn is ideally located as a central base from which to explore and discover the secrets of Tasmania’s magnificent and diverse North West. From the neighbouring tulip fields of Table Cape, the gentle river walking trails where platypus frolic and the surrounding beauty of Wynyard’s hinterland and reserves – radiate out to the charming historic coastal settlements of Boat Harbour, Stanley and Penguin – venturing on to the enchanted forests of the Tarkine, the mist enshrouded peaks and crags of Cradle Mt NP, and rugged isolation of the West Coast.
Just minutes from the Burnie/Wynyard Airport where frequent REX flights throughout the day link Wynyard to Melbourne (1hr) and the world beyond. [The major Car Hire firms operate from the Burnie/Wynyard Airport] & The Spirit of Tasmania berths daily at Devonport – 50 minutes away.
