The space
Pimelea and Ettrick Rocks is not just a destination, it’s an experience and here’s why?

Situated in one of the most unique locations on King Island the homes you will be staying at have been designed by award winning architects, using large expansive glass throughout the rooms to showcase the magnificent rock formations and the dynamic activity of the great Southern Ocean.

This ever changing spectacle together with the wildlife activity abounding the property, produced and directed by Nature herself, will be enjoyed up and close no matter the room you are in.

Comfortable seating, large chaise lounge, quality and luxury bedding, private ensuite with rainfall shower and cantilevered window seat in each bedroom are all there for you to just unwind, relax and take it all in.

The site favoured by fishermen whether on boats, diving or snorkelling or from the safety of land is just meters away from your stay. Binoculars, although at times not needed, are provided to get a closer view, during the early hours, of the fishing boats pulling up their nets or lobster pots directly in front of the property.

Sea Eagles and other birdlife can be seen hovering or swooping for their catch right in front of your accommodation. At dusk the wallabies gather around each of the homes amusing our guests who at times are seen jumping for joy from one end of the house to the other to get a closer look at these wonderful and innocent creatures.

Food on King Island is abundant and its produce prized and sought after by culinary chefs and connoisseur’s of good food from around the world. The site has an abundance of edible plants, seaweed and crustaceans to forage and to help enjoy these delights there is a well stocked pantry in a dream kitchen that is bound to get those creative juices into overdrive.

There are a number of walking tracks, sandy and sheltered coves, plenty of vantage points; to capture that prize winning photographic moment, that artistic scene with the drama that is associated to the shipwreck tragedies of King Island, that ideal catch of the day for the BBQ and for that moment of tranquillity to share your joy with loved ones!

Come, stay with us and experience the marvel that is King Island and Ettrick Rocks.

Where you’ll be

Nugara, Tasmania, Australia

Pimelea is located in a truly remarkable location on King island. Just 50m from the shore line and adjacent to the river Ettrick to the south and Miller's Bay to the right, the view is far reaching and uninterrupted.

The location is a key monitoring site for Birdlife Australia for spotting some unique and rare bird species that are endemic to the island and for those migratory birds that use King Island as a vital stop over after having crossed the distant stretches of the Great Southern Ocean between Argentina and King Island. Binoculars are provided at the retreat to get a closer glimpse of the bird activity in the area. It is a must see spectacle.

Just 15 minutes drive to the main township of Currie, allows our guests easy access to the main shopping hub and local restaurants.

Two world class golf courses rated amongst the best in Australia and in the top 20 in the world provide an awe inspiring challenge to both amateurs and professionals. Cape Wickham golf course is open to the public and has a restaurant for breakfast and light lunches and included as a prominent destination in your tour guide.

Touring the island fully and visiting all of the major locations of interest will take anywhere between 2-4 days depending on your pace and activities you wish to participate in whilst touring, for example King Island has some of the best surfing breaks in Australia and is frequented by professional surfers that wish to have time for themselves. King Island lobsters are amongst the best in the world and are highly sought after and if you have diving experience and an appropriate fishing license there is plenty to bring back to the retreat for a delightful BBQ enjoyed on the large and opened deck.

There are a number of river estuaries including one adjacent to your retreat that are easily accessible and provide opportunities to explore and study the local fauna and wildlife.

King Island although has many rugged and attractive landscapes, it also has many beautiful sandy white beaches that stretch for miles. Bring a pair of good hiking boots, covering for all weather and swimwear during those sunny days and you will be wondering why you had not visited King Island earlier.
