Sometimes, the simplest pleasures in life are the best. This sums up Cloudy Bay Cabin; an unpretentious and welcoming little timber cottage surrounded by South Bruny National Park and just metres from the shores of beautiful Cloudy Bay, Bruny Island.

Cloudy Bay Cabin Accommodation

x 6

x 6

It may be simple, but the cabin is very comfortable, with modern, quality furniture and luxurious linen. To maintain the unspoiled nature of the area, Cloudy Bay Cabin relies on solar power and bottled gas to provide the means for most modern conveniences (but not a washing machine).

The cabin has two bedrooms and sleeps six (master bedroom: king bed; second bedroom; two double bunks; fold-out couch: double bed) – with room for more to camp on the expansive grass recreation area outside.

The clean and practical kitchen has views out through the covered veranda to the beach beyond. A rustic eight-seater dining table provides the perfect spot for lunch, dinner or a family Scrabble challenge.

Floor Plan


Cloudy Bay Cabin is situated at the southern end of Bruny Island.

Located just 50 metres from the beach, Cloudy Bay Cabin is well located for families with young children keen to splash in the shallows – or teenagers prepared to walk to the nearby surf break.  Walkers will be delighted too, with kilometre after kilometre of beach to explore, as well as 350 acres of private bushland to share with no one but the local wildlife.

This unspoiled seclusion is located more than 30 minutes from the nearest store, so it is recommended visitors to the cabin bring their own provisions to make the most of the beautiful setting.

Address: South Bruny National Park, 970 Cloudy Bay Rd, South Bruny, Tasmania Australia 7150

Loved the seclusion and absolute beachfront location-idyllic. Appreciated the cosy old cabin with an eco touch and funky-eclectic furniture touches plus the comfy bed and quality linens. Loved the birds-Button quail, Oyster catchers, Sea Eagles, Robins etc. Saw dolphins our first morning, exciting! Love to return.

Location location..... Pristine wilderness. One of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. Relaxed, comfortable accommodation with the most spectacular views. Amongst the most beautiful wilderness possible. Was just a stone’s throw away from Cloudy Bay Beach. Peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. The most amazing view of Cloudy Bay. Accommodation isn't fancy but is very comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen. We couldn't BELIEVE the location when we arrived. We will be back again for sure.

What a wonderful part of the world! Loved the cosy cabin and the beach was very safe for the kids to play in. Spotted a sand octopus. The highlight was the bush walk to Beaufort Bay! Thanks for a lovely time.

5 out of 5 by John on Hotels.com Posted Jan 24, 2018 Amazing place. We have been all over Tasmania but this was as good as it gets. Perfect weather. The water was warm, surf was good, beautiful walks. One of the best places on earth.

We've just returned from a wonderful week in Tasmania and without a doubt, the highlight for us was the few days spent in Cloudy Bay Cabin. The drive to the cabin, through pastures, forest and dunes is a delightful experience on its own, and provides just enough distance from civilisation to feel private without feeling isolated. The cabin sits on a grassy hill at the edge of forest, and looks across miles of beach to to the other side of Cloudy Bay and the distant mountains of south-east Tasmanian mainland. We spent most of our days exploring Bruny Island, all of which can be reached within no more than an hour's drive from the cabin. However we made sure we left plenty of time to return in the evenings, walk along the beach, and then watch pademelons emerge from the bush and graze on the grass beneath the porch. Inside, the cabin has a large combined living area including kitchen, dining table and living area - with plenty of windows facing the beach. Then there are 2 bedrooms (one for a couple and the other with 4 bunks), and a laundry, shower and separate toilet. As long as you're well stocked up on groceries (available from the general store on Adventure Bay, or the Bruny Island Cheese and Beer Co.) you'll have everything you need here to enjoy what we found to be a completely enviable and unmissable life-style.

Our booking at the Cabin was made last minute and what a great decision. The cabin was immaculately clean and well kitted out and the location is amazing. Ben was super helpful both with the booking and then helping us out the next day with a stay at Cloudy Bay Villa which is another amazing property, it is great to meet someone who is so obviously enthusiastic about their job. Overall I could not recommend either property enough.
