The Roundhouse is located in a place of spectacular beauty, with views of Quamby Bluff and the Great Western Tiers on all sides. The property is surrounded by World Heritage Rainforest which is a result of the protracted Jackeys Marsh Forest Protests. The fresh air, crystal clear water, abundant wildlife and pristine environment are all environmental values prized by the people of Jackeys Marsh. We would now like to share our unique heritage with the rest of the world.

The space
The Roundhouse is a self-contained home set apart from the other buildings on the property. It gives you the privacy and independence to do your own thing. The interior is warm and comfortable with extensive windows to highlight the amazing views of the mountain valley of Jackeys Marsh.

The Roundhouse is full of architectural features. From the handmade stonewall basement, through the curved wooden features of the main floor, to the onion top cupola that caps off the building. It is a truly unique property that continues to create special memories for all who visit.

"People respond to the shapes that I make. They enjoy the playfulness and freedom of line, and see the resemblance of natural forms in the designs. They appreciate the skill required to make such shapes from straight timber, following Nature's design rules."
Kim Clark - Curved Wood Creations ( search this name to see website.)

Guest access
Our guests will have exclusive access to the entire house, and are welcome to explore the rest of the property, including the self-guided walk to the old Nut Garden and into the rainforest.

Guests are asked to respect the privacy of the other buildings on the property. Guided tours are available on request.

Other things to note
The Roundhouse is entirely off the grid. All electricity comes from a combination of solar power and micro hydro. While this is perfectly sufficient for most regular applications such as charging laptops and watching TV, the system cannot sustain high power items such as hair dryers, irons, or anything that generates heat.

Location

Jackeys Marsh, Tasmania, Australia

Jackeys Marsh has a small community of approximately 80 people scattered throughout the valley. Most of the valley is heavily forested with small farms occupying the clearings. Because Jackeys Marsh is off the state energy grid, it attracts those who seek an alternative and more independent lifestyle.
