Welcome to Aquila Eco Retreat – a unique luxury rural escape in lutruwita Tasmania. Set amongst the picturesque Coal River Valley wine country, Aquila offers indulgent sustainable off-grid accommodation for those wanting to reconnect with nature, take some time to disconnect from the outside world, and re-discover the simple pleasures that come with our stunning natural surroundings and beautifully appointed accommodation.
“Be in the moment, just you and this place,
let the sounds of stillness wrap themselves around you.
Be refreshed. Be indulgent. Be unplanned.”
Aquila and beyond
Step onto your private deck and sink into the clawfoot bath. Pop the bubbles and gaze out over the rolling hills to kunanyi/Mt Wellington. Enjoy a picnic among the grapevines and watch the ladybirds, and as the sun goes down, slip into the wood-fire sauna and melt into the heat. Cozy up around the firepit and watch the stars twinkle.
Or if a little bit of exploring is more your thing, be adventurous and discover some of the unique experiences and places you will find tucked away in Richmond and around the Coal Valley.
the place and the people
Welcome to our patch of paradise. We’re Alice and Jason and our family has been farming this piece of Tasmanian bushland for decades. Aquila is named after the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle (Aquila audax fleayi), which we often see soaring over our land. We are deeply passionate about this land and the natural resources the earth and sun provide. It’s our pleasure to share these values through off-grid glamping and eco experiences that offer ultimate luxury and comfort in a unique country setting of space and freedom.
