Base Camp Tasmania
BCT is a rural retreat in a quiet, secluded and peaceful bush valley. Located in Glenfern high above New Norfolk in the Derwent Valley, less than sixty minutes from Hobart, this architect-designed facility is the ideal getaway if you're seeking a sublimely peaceful place to relax and unwind.
Accommodation choices range from our self-contained cabin (for up to six guests) with private facilities, a clean and cosy dormitory (for up to ten guests) with rucksack storage, to our campsites. All guests have access to the communal facilities including free laundry and barbecue, and all facilities are designed to minimise their environmental impact using natural materials, recyclable waste systems, energy efficient power and a natural water supply.
Discover a variety of unique Tasmanian animals, birdlife and flora on our 41 hectares, or take an easy drive to some of Tasmania's World Heritage wilderness areas and National Parks close by. Fish for trout in the Plenty and Derwent Rivers; visit the Salmon Ponds; marvel at the forest giants in the Styx Valley; explore the Port Arthur penal settlement; sample some of the excellent wines of the Coal River Valley; or join us for a guided bushwalking tour with Tasmanian Wilderness Experiences.
