Self Catering Facilities at Button Grass Retreat: Enjoy nature in Far South Tasmania

Important note: A place to retreat to nature:

Buttongrass retreat is a place to escape from the hassles of modern life for a few days. Get away from television, phones and 240 volt electricity and enjoy some peace and quiet. 12 volt solar electricity operates the lights and music. There is usually limited 240 volt electricity, enough to charge a mobile phone or camera but not sufficient to run a laptop computer for more than an hour a day.

Well Equipped Kitchen

  • Full gas range with oven
  • Additional wood fired oven
  • Quality utensils, pots, pans, knives, stirers, baking trays etc ( but no 240 volt appliances)

Spacious Living Area

Eco-Responsible Features

  • Limited 240 volt electricity runs CD and DVD players. You can charge phones, computers etc but you cannot run hairdryers, sleep machines etc. Overloading the electric system will blow the fuse and you will have no 240 volt power for the rest of your visit.
  • Hot water is principally from solar and wood heating. There is gas backup incase of extended cloudy periods.
  • Cooking is by the gas hotplate/oven
    or on the wood hotplate/oven
