first_imgSet to open in September 2018, Tasmanian Walking Company has announced the official commencement of bookings for the much anticipated Three Capes Lodge Walk. TWC is the only commercial operator entrusted with providing private lodge accommodation, supporting guided walking experiences in the Tasman National Park.“Three Capes Lodge Walk is the next step forward in our quest to create the most innovative and environmentally sustainable lodges in the world,” said Brett Godfrey, Co-owner of Tasmanian Walking Company. “The lodges will be a reflection of the iconic and remarkable landscapes providing the opportunity to be immersed, educated and of course guided safely through our natural environments.”Focusing on ecological preservation, TWC has scoured the world for best practice environmental technologies and this development will be the largest investment in the company’s history.In a quest to blend seamlessly with nature, the distinctive, high quality split-level construction comprises separate skillion roofed structures that follow the contour of the existing landscape to minimise bulk and height. The lightweight modular sleeping pods are pre-fabricated, with each component positioned beneath the tree canopy by helicopter and will also feature locally-sourced environmentally friendly wall insulation, and Australia’s first recycling showers. The innovative off grid renewable energy system has PV solar panels bolstered by Archimedes wind turbines, which are intrinsically safe to birdlife with no rotor tips. Birdlife is further protected through clever use of operable external timber screens to prevent birds striking windows.Predominately constructed with non-reflective Tasmanian materials, the lodges will feature suspended floors to ensure minimal ground disturbance. Trees removed during construction will be incorporated into the joinery design and replaced with new trees planted nearby. All servicing systems, water tanks and battery store will be hidden in a sub floor beneath the main level of each building with open lower decks also functioning as a helipad for supply drop-off and removal of all waste.Heath Garratt, General Manager added, “Demand exhibited for the Three Capes Track to date gives us great confidence in this new project. If our other walks are any guide, our guests will arrive as walkers but leave as advocates for our National Parks.”Bookings can be made at tasmanianwalkingcompany.com.au or call +61 (0)3 63922211 australiaecolodgesSustainableTasmanian Walking Companylast_img
