About This Trip

Escape to the Tasmanian countryside for a cellar door short break with a difference, stay in a unique, insulated luxury dome. Tasmania has long been celebrated for its outstanding natural beauty, it's time to take a break from the day-to-day and disappear into the incredible Tamar Valley for a delightful short break.  

 

Situated on the Swinging Gate vineyard, your unique geodesic dome. This fully insulated, entirely private dome gives you the ultimate in closer to nature experiences. Soak up the views from your private outdoor bathtub, with your complimentary bottle of wine to hand and afterwards roast marshmallows in your firepit. Leave the roof of the dome exposed so you can sleep under the stars, while staying cosy and dry.  

 

We will whisk you away on a wine and cheese tour of the Tamar Valley, exploring wines from at least four of the world-class wineries with your expert guide. With some award-winning fizz, sumptuous rieslings and refined pinot noir, the Tamar Valley combines outstanding flavours with the incredible natural beauty that surrounds you.

highlights

When we look for short breaks, we want to offer you something different, something that you can’t get anywhere else. The luxury geodesic domes you stay in on this short break are so distinctive that you will always remember your stay in them. 

 

With a completely opulent look and feel to them, you will be able to relax and feel so entirely close to nature. Sit in your outdoor bath, a glass of wine in hand and stare out at the distant mountains. Sit by the firepit, polishing off that free bottle of wine before retiring to the night to lie and stare straight up at a sky packed with stars. Total bliss!

 

We also want to make sure that when you take a short trip, you get a bit of in-depth understanding for the region you are visiting and this is why we have your outstanding hosts taking you out on a local time tasting in the Tamar Valley. You will meet the people who live and work here, chat about their lives and their wines and explore all the hidden gems of this enchanting region.
