Where you’ll be

Lorinna, Tasmania, Australia

Lorinna is a small community of people with alternative ideals , we are mostly owner builders and endeavour to be self sufficient , there is no mains power supply in Lorinna and every household use solar , water or wind for their power supply . Situated on Lake Cethana ( a hydro dam ) a generous 14km long body of water , great for swimming , canoeing or fishing . The area is remote and secluded and borders the Cradle Mountain National Park . It is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of urban living , ideal for those wanting to rest and rejuvenate. Or there is the option to meet the locals at the co-op for coffee any Saturday afternoon or go for a swim in the lake , a 5 minute walk , below the cabin or at the local lakeside spot ,a short walk or drive away .


We are located a beautiful 50km drive from Cradle Mountain, a 50km drive to the Walls of Jerusalem and the King Solomon and Maracoopa Caves are less than an hours drive away .
Sheffield , our nearest shopping centre ,is 30minutes away.
The Mt Roland ,three peaks walking track starts just 15 minutes away .
Lorinna has a picturesque 6km trail meandering about lake Cethana , this is our old access road and is a peaceful meandering walk suited to adults and children alike.
The cabin is situated just 5min. from Lake Cethana , we offer a rustic walking track to it ,suitable footwear is required. Children will need supervision and the very young ones carried on parts of the track. There is also a short circuit nature walk beyond the cabin that is well signed.
Since Lorinna has a new access we have a scenic through road , a 9km gravel road winding above Lake Cethana meeting the sealed LEMONTHYME Road .,
We are remote but offers guests a wonderful experience of bush rural life with up close nature experience.
Nevertheless guests have all the modern ammenities when staying with us , the cabin has internet and phone reception on Telstra 4G .o
