About us

Relax Explore Experience Nature

“Look deep into nature & you will understand everything better” - Albert Einsten. 

Nature is essential. Time spent outdoors nurtures our well-being, opening our hearts, inspiring our minds and lifting our spirits. At Huon Bush Retreats we value these things, and want to share them with you.

We embrace the role of caring for this unique environment, and strive to be as sustainable as possible. We wish to create a space that you can relax and recharge, regardless of race, sexuality or beliefs. You are welcome here.

We live cooperatively with the native animals whose home we share. We ask that you also appreciate that this place as their home, drive slowly on the roads and do not feed them human food.

Huon Bush Retreats was set up in 2004 by a group of conservationists passionate about preserving land for nature. In 2021, Michael Brill and Pamela Black fell in love with the nature reserve, and are privileged and humbled to became its current custodians.
