Livable Works of Art in Eastern Tasmania

You Can Just Call Them Your Beach Shacks

By Hadley Tomicki ·

2020 is right around the corner.

By all estimates, it should be a period of relative calm with no drama whatsoever.

That is, at least while you’re staying inside a palace of serenity on Tasmania’s east coast.

You’re off to see Sea Stacks Shacks of the Denison, a starkly beautiful trio of cabins woven into the coastal grasslands where the Denison River meets the ocean, now booking escapes in the Tasmanian beach town of Bicheno.

They say “shack” more as an ode to their local beach culture. And less to refer to the minimalist work-of-art you’ll be staying in. A small fortress of smooth woods, mid-century furniture and giant windows-for-walls built seamlessly into the environment so you can spend your time staring at your heavenly surroundings without anything getting in the way.

Not that it’s all idle time around here. A white sand beach is a short walk away. And Bicheno is celebrated for its seafood restaurants. And you can always do stuff like river and lagoon tours. Or book a fishing trip or surfing lesson. Among other stuff.

Plus you’ll be only seven minutes from an 150-acre natural park that’s home to wombats, raptors and Tasmanian devils.

You really can’t go all that way and not see a single Tasmanian devil.
