Coastal Pavilions open at Freycinet Lodge

Coastal Pavilions at Freycinet Lodge
The first element of our major investment in tourism on Tasmania’s east coast opens on 15 March 2018. The Coastal Pavilions at Freycinet Lodge are designed to immerse guests in an elegant yet grounded, natural experience.

The pavilions project has been led by well-known Tasmanian tourism developer Brett Torossi, with beautiful design from Liminal Architecture and masterful consutruction from Cordwell Lane.

Group Chief Executive Harvey Lennon said he was delighted with the final product that had added a new premium option for visitors to the region.

“All our research pointed to the fact that they were looking for a unique accommodation experience in a natural, wilderness setting,” he said.

“The newly opened pavilions deliver this option for our members and visitors to the state.

“With their unique design, including floor to ceiling glass windows to take in the natural surrounds and an outdoor bathtub designed to allow guests to immerse themselves in the natural wilderness area, the new Coastal Pavilions are sure to be a hit with both locals and visitors."

Mr Lennon said the new Coastal Pavilions are just the first stage of our Freycinet Renewal Project. Our focus now moves to stage two – the Hazards View rooms and the addition of an accessible suite in the main Lodge building, as well as the completion of the interior refurbishment of the Lodge.

“We believe Tasmanian tourism is going from strength to strength and the addition of the waterfront pavilions at Freycinet Lodge will be another drawcard for the East Coast region and Tasmania as a whole.

“We are especially delighted to have been able to bring this vision to life through the support of local Tasmanian businesses.”

The RACT received grant funding of $1 million from the Australian and Tasmanian Governments through the Tasmania Jobs and Investment Fund.
