At Flinders Island Gourmet Retreat at Cooma House (FIGR) you have a hidden treasure in Tasmania
A total experience, not just a room! Choosing to stay at Cooma House, you are offered an indulgent retreat in one of Tasmania’s wild and untamed places.
Stretch your legs along the paths down to the sea. Immerse yourself within our jewelled labyrinth or find a bush ‘chapel’.
Smell the beach and the salt-wet rocks. Feel the air move - and watch the eagles fly. Slow right down.
We have five bespoke rooms each with en-suites, art works and best quality beds.
Your room is private, snug and comfortable and you have a smart TV served by satellite. Your en-suite is bright and private. Enjoy our little reading nook, browse our library and sit in a chair together with a N’Espresso coffee.
Inside, we have two small meeting spaces; there’s a sheltered outside studio providing seaside views, a north facing courtyard for cafe or bbq and long tables with chairs on the eastern veranda.
The creation of our cooking schools at FIGR fulfils a lifelong ambition to present the wonderful produce of Flinders Island and we enjoy having our guests experiencing garden-to-kitchen-to-plate. We can supply some lovely wines and cordials to complement the meals.
There are opportunities to see the Ramsar sites, or book scenic flights, play golf, charter fishing, bushwalking or history and other tours of the island.
It is easy to make round trips, starting from FIGR at Cooma House for sight-seeing or be part of the wild-ness, the adventure of the whole island, including the necklace of islands in the Franklin Sound.
You are wished many blessings during the time you are in attendance at FIGR at Cooma House - and ever after.

My passion is sharing Flinders Island life, hosting guests, telling the stories, valuing and creating meals from Flinders Island to honour the environment, the seasons, and most importantly, my guests.
With your room you have full access to all the common spaces such as the reading room, the Parish Sitting Room and all the outdoor spaces.
We have created different rooms with bespoke furniture and art works. We hope to cater to your needs and tastes.

In my cooking experience I have worked with some of Australia’s leading chefs and developed my own approach. I offer a taste of Australia’s origins at my cooking schools as we have access to game. With our seasonal garden produce, we aim to give an authentic experience. I am influenced by a fusion of French and Asian cooking styles which have evolved into our uniquely Modern Australian cuisine. Go to the cooking school page.
