Instead of throwing a camp shower bag over a tree branch in the midst of nature, soak up the beauty of Tasmania’s wilderness in one of these rugged bathrooms.
You can’t swan up to Bay of Fires Lodge on the remote north-east coast; you’d need to trek there – as part of an exclusive four-day guided walk with Tasmanian Walking Company that includes kayaking the Ansons River and swims in the ocean. It’s highly recommended that you book a massage at the lodge’s hilltop spa and soak in the tub on its private bathing pavilion (above) with a bird’s-eye view of the surrounds and surf.

Inside each of the eight (by March 2018) river-fronting safari glamping tents at Truffle Lodge (main photo) is a luxurious bedroom for two, bringing to mind an exotic 1950s Arabian Nights film with modern trappings (minus a TV and Wi-Fi). The en-suite bathroom (above), in a polymer rain tank, is a pleasant surprise: a steampunk fantasy of brass taps and exposed copper piping, with a handmade wooden sitting tub. Perfect for relaxing after a hard day kayaking while looking for platypuses, or exploring wineries and farm-gate producers in Derwent Valley.
