Banksia Cabin is nestled behind the dunes of Dolphin Sands, with direct access to the ocean beach and stunning views of the Hazards and Freycinet Peninsula. It is the perfect location for a rustic retreat from the hectic pace of life. Stroll the golden sands of Nine Mile Beach, watch the weather roll by, gaze at the starry skies, enjoy cosy evenings cooking with family and friends, and fall asleep to the sound of waves on the shore. Swim in the sea or the warmer waters of the Swan River.

The space
Banksia Cabin is actually several cabins. It's charming, creative and cosy, reminiscent of childhood holidays and simpler times. The Main Cabin houses the living, dining and kitchen with a bathroom.

There's a gas heater inside and at the flick of a switch it looks just like a wood fire, without the hassle of firewood.

The Sleeping Cabin is situated a couple of meters along the deck from the Main Cabin, with shutters and portholes, and is divided into 2 areas and ideally sleeps 2-3, either in the sublimely comfy queen bed or double.

A bathroom with a toilet and a cast iron bath is situated inside the Main Cabin. The other bathroom is accessed via a timber decked walkway from the Main Cabin and contains a shower, toilet, washing machine and trough sink.

So please note that there are no en suites and that a trip to the toilet in the night involves leaving your cabin. You will be blown away by the stars so it's really quite nice.

The kitchen area is compact but there are good quality pots and pans, utensils, cutlery and crockery. The range has gas hobs and an electric convection oven. There is a long wooden table for lazy lunches and candles in bottles for cozy dinner conversations. A toasted sandwich maker is great for a quick snack and there is a toaster, stove top espresso pot and a vacuum for little messes. Fridge space is adequate but not huge, so a midweek shop for week long stayers might be a good idea.

The design of Banksia Cabin is to maximise your relaxation by interaction with the outdoors, a comfortable step up from camping.

If you need to do a load of washing, feel free. Washing powder is provided and there's an inside clothes rack for smalls and a Hill's Hoist clothes line outside.

Where you’ll be

Dolphin Sands, Tasmania, Australia

Situated on Nine Mile Beach, long beach walks are essential, as is swimming in the surf on the main beach and in the Swan River, only a couple of hundred metres from your door. There's a fishing rod provided, so we suggest you pick up some bait in Swansea and head for the river mouth for Bream, Flathead and Cocky Salmon. We've provided some deck chairs and an eski, so take these along. When the surfs up, Nine Mile Beach is great for boogie boarding. For serious surfers, the reef beyond the sand bar is a famous surf spot when conditions are right. The rural township of Swansea is 20 minutes away for shopping, a meal out and the golf course.

Local vineyard cellar doors, such as Milton, Devils Corner, Springvale and Gala are close by on the Tasman Highway.

As this is a 5 acre block, the nearest house/camping is a long way away so you will have complete privacy. Most of the time you will be the only people on the beach. The beautiful Freycinet Peninsula and National Park, that you can see from the beach, are close as the crow flies but are about an hour away by car and make an excellent destination for a day trip.

Oyster Bay Seafood in Swansea does great fish and chips as well as fresh oysters and crayfish in season.

Melshell Oysters are available to purchase off Yellow Sand Banks Road in season.
Springvale Vineyard, just a bit further north, has been hosting a pop-up seafood restaurant in Summer and it has been extremely popular.
