SEA STACKS, East Coast, Tasmania  Since 2019

Imagine a place where you don’t wish to be anywhere else, when you don’t wish for anything more than what you have at that moment.  There is just peace.  This is what a  SEA STACK experience is – a simple moment that feels special and relaxing.  It’s not about being fancy, or styled, contrived or being in the best circumstances.  It’s about being present enough to see how great a simple moment is and be able to give that moment a name…… SEA STACKS.

The end of one journey is the beginning of another...

Forged over 400 million years ago the unique Granite outcrops along the Tasmanian East Coast are responsible for the iconic white sandy beaches and pure aqua waters. As the granite slowly erodes it transforms into sparkling white sand.  The orange lichen covered boulders create the stunning beaches and coastline, as the white granite sand reflects the ocean in a kaleidoscope of colour. 

Similarly, what gives Granite its strength is the relationship between the minerals that create this stone, Feldspar, Mica and Quartz.

SEA STACKS stand in honour of the everchanging coastal environment, giant sentinels rising above the coastal grasses, guarding over the tranquil rivulet. Buildings that become part of the environment, blending in to become an intimate part of the landscape.

A SEA STACKS experience is an emotional presence, a sense of isolation without loneliness, becoming immersed in the surrounding environment and not dominating it. It is an experience that pays respect to the landscape and opens a peace that comes from being within nature.

A self-contained accommodation like no other...  these individually curated buildings create curiosity, a taste of an experience, challenging you to define your own emotion by opening the door, emerging from the safety of the timber lined cocoon and experiencing the natural wonder of the environment. 

 

SEA STACKS is an organic experience, just as the buildings will change and age over time due to the elements and environment so too will every individual experience. This is a tactile living vessel and every moment shared is imprinted on the buildings evolution and history.

So throw away convention, be vulnerable and immerse yourself in this moment of tranquillity.

 

“….years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.  So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore. Dream. Discover”  Mark Twain
