Bushy Summers has been designed purely to nurture you and feed your creative soul.

Resting on the shores of Lettes Bay, Tasmania, Bushy Summers is the most private shack in the bay. It is simple and cosy with stunning views to help you unwind and feel inspired, as you disconnect in nature and reconnect to self.

This is truly a magical place, and the perfect retreat for one to two people.

The space
Feel nurtured at Bushy Summers.

Your day will gently unfold as you wake up to the sound of birdsong or the quack of the resident ducks as they wander up and down the bay and close-knit community of neighbouring, historic miner shacks is what makes Lettes Bay so special.

Nurture your mind:
Completely relax as you curl up with a pot of tea and book in the comfy double bed, or soak in the luxurious cast iron claw foot bath and glimpse the gum tree tops.

Nurture your body:
Cook your favourite meal in our simple, little kitchen or take a long stroll along the shoreline and explore nature.

Nurture your soul:
Sit out on the deck with a glass of Tasmanian wine and read, write, paint, make... feel inspired.

Where you’ll be

Strahan, Tasmania, Australia

The serenity and close-knit community of neighbouring, historic miner shacks is what makes Lettes Bay so special. As do the constantly changing weather and enormous skies. The bay is more alive during the summer months but the winter is also very special. Rug up and get out for long walks, take a steam train ride or explore Macquarie Harbour and take a Gordon River Cruise.

For supplies, the local IGA (grocer) is a 10 minute drive. They stock most things you will need. The best coffee is to be found at the Coffee Shack and they sell good homecooked treats. There is a liquor store in Strahan, along with a petrol station and laundromat.

The West Coast Wilderness Railway is only a 5 minute drive from the cabin and the Gordon River Cruise terminal is less than a 10 minute drive.
