Overview

About the property

Bay of Fires Eco Hut is an off-the-grid holiday experience at Binalong Bay on the Bay of Fires, Tasmania. The Eco Hut is back from the road on a few acres of bush, but just a short walk to one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches. You will feel tucked away, hidden from the world – unless you want to emerge for your morning coffee, which you can get at the quality restaurant just down the road.

The Eco Hut is deliberately simple. Power is solar, major appliances are gas and water is rain water from a tank. With a nod to the camping experience, the ‘loo with a view’ is just behind the hut and the shower is outside on the back deck. While it may be daunting at first, once you have showered under the stars with no one in sight, you may be transformed. There is no internet or Wi Fi (unless you have a mobile device linked to Telstra), no TV (bring your laptop if you need it) and, as in most of Tasmania, the only phone service provider is Telstra. The one concession is a blue tooth-enabled or plug-in portable speaker for you to link to if you just can’t live without the music!

If you haven’t been put off yet, be advised that the hut is stylish and extremely comfortable. You’ll have instant hot water and a modern caravan-style fridge – both gas-powered. For cooking, there is a stovetop, a microwave (for warming food only) and a Weber Q on the deck. All kitchen items are supplied. We provide commercially laundered, top-quality linen, but only for the double bed. For the other guests, we provide mattresses, but you’ll need to bring your own sleeping bag or bedding. Soft towels and face cloths are provided for all guests. To keep you warm and cosy, there is a woodstove with split wood ready and waiting for you to light it up

Excellent self contained Eco Hut

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Eco Hut. Great location and self contained - it had everything we needed and more.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. The Eco Hut is very unique. I believe the only property in Binalong Bay on such a large bush block, and yet so close to the main Beach and Restaurant. One of a kind!

Everything as promised

Absolutely will be back. Everything that was promised was delivered.

Off grid, secluded, quiet, close to the beach.

Completely unwind from life. A real treasure.

This is a place to relax and enjoy yourself with lots of places to walk and see.

At night the best thing to do is turn out the lights sit by the windows and look at the stars.

Fantastic setup with solar power and gas.
