Tarraleah – Luxury in the wilderness with great food and wine
When you are looking for a place to go that lets you appreciate the wilderness at its finest, the Tasmanian Highland Tourist Route can be just the thing that you need. When travelling the route to Strahan from Hobart or Launceston, call in to Tarraleah on your way. Surrounded by mountain lakes and ancient forests, Tarraleah Village is a great place to stop along the way. The Village offers many opportunities for fishing, kayaking and seeing the unique wildlife in their natural habitat.
Once you realize that the beauty that surrounds you is worth a longer stay, Tarraleah is a great place to make your bed for the night. Not only will you find a choice of accommodation for the evening from 5 star luxury of the Lodge to the Art Deco experience of the Cottages, but you can enjoy the modern bistro style menu in the Highlander Arms Hotel. Relax in The Reading Room with one of the local boutique beers or chat to the locals in front of the fire over a glass of wine. Wake up in the morning and enjoy the sunrise over coffee on an outdoor terrace, and welcome the day with a round of golf.
Although you may start your tour with the intention of simply enjoying the scenery, there is so much to do on the way and with such high class accommodation to stay the night there is no reason that you should not take advantage of the stunning lakes and forests that surround you. Trout fishing can keep you busy for hours, and dinner at the Highland Arms can be a treat filled with great food, friendly company, and stories that go back many years.
From the moment you begin your drive you will begin an experience that you will never forget and getting lost in the wilderness might just be the best part of your holiday if you find your way to Tarraleah.
