Introducing Jemma Louise

Jemma is a Hobart based Yoga Teacher, Artist and Massage Therapist. As a practitioner of Hatha Yoga for the last 10 years, she has been learning about the body holistically through the introspective nature of Yoga and quiet power of present-moment awareness. Her love of the outdoors drew her to Tasmania 5 years ago, where she lived and worked remotely on the east coast. It was here that she developed a deep relationship between Yoga and the natural environment. The ever-changing moods of this wild island inform Jemma’s Yoga and art practice, with the intention to live more fully in our bodies, bring clarity to the mind and honour the healing qualities that nature presents us with. Jemma’s teaching style is gentle, seasonal and focussed on the needs of the individual.

The Quiet Nature of Yoga

Scheduled around the daily walks, Jemma's intention is to bring our awareness from the chatter of our inner dialogue into the presence and knowledge of our bodies. Through witnessing the senses, we can focus our attention and gently encourage stillness of mind. Many of our lives are filled with decisions, demands and distractions of the modern world. By contrast, nature, by-nature, is slow, providing the perfect antidote to busy-ness.

Jemma brings with her the experience of teaching Yoga for all levels with a focus on listening to the body and deepening our relationship with the world around us. She will provide you with the opportunity to wash away the stresses of life and create space to tune into the cycles of nature amongst the sea-sprayed vistas of the Tasman Peninsula. All Yoga and meditation practices are suitable for beginners.

Day 1: Hobart - Crescent Lodge

Approximately 2 hours walking

Upon arrival at Stewarts Bay, we will make our way down to the jetty where a private boat will be waiting to depart for our short trip across to Denman’s Cove at 1.15 pm. Cruising with views back to Port Arthur, aside from the possible seal and dolphin spotting, some of the highest dolerite cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere come into view, an indication of the drama to come.

In Denman’s Cove, we’ll fuel you with local produce for lunch, in preparation for a gentle walk through coastal woodland to the rocky refuge of Surveyors Cove. At this point, if the Southern Ocean begs, head for a dip before a gradual incline up to the lodge.

Crescent Lodge is perched high, with far stretching views across Crescent Bay to Cape Raoul, with guest rooms spilling into the gully. Settle in with a warm shower as your guides-come-chefs prepare a three-course feast of local fare. Post dinner, take your Tassie pinot to a quiet deck for your own private sunset.

Day 2: Crescent Lodge - Cape Pillar Lodge

Approximately 5 hours walking

Wake to the silence of Crescent Lodge and wander down to the stunning dining room for a hearty breakfast to start the day. From here, head due south with views across Safety Cove and Maingon Bay to Bruny Island. Climbing Arthurs Peak, 300 metres above sea level, is worth the oceanic vista. In these parts, White Bellied Sea Eagles soar in the thermal currents, so be sure to look skyward. Lunch isn’t far away, an easy downhill descent to south-facing cliffs where pelagic seabirds are plenty - albatross, petrels and gannets. Here, there’s nothing between you and Antarctica.

Following lunch, skirt the edge of Tornado Ridge before heading south toward Cape Pillar Lodge, your base for the next two nights. Your pace might quicken in the knowledge there is a massage, facial or relaxation bath on offer at Cape Pillar Lodge.

Day 3: Cape Pillar Lodge return

Approximately 6 hours walking (optional)

This is the most adventurous day of your journey. Today you’ll walk through silver gum forest (Eucalyptus Tenuiramis), a species endemic to the area, out to the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. There’s little wonder Cape Pillar has been afforded other names - Hurricane Heath and Desolation Gully. A side trip to The Blade is a must, with staggering views across to Tasman Island.

Lunch is served at Chasm Lookout - with Tasman Island’s weathered lighthouse in sight. It’s then a direct return journey home to Cape Pillar Lodge where the relaxation pavilion, three-course goodness and ocean views await. By now, walking strangers might just have become firm friends. Unlace the boots, read a book with sea breeze in your toes.

Those with a penchant for pampering can forego today’s walk and spend the day at Cape Pillar Lodge. Enjoy one of our relaxing treatments ranging from 30 to 60 minutes and immerse yourself in the enchanting surrounds.

Cape Hauy

Day 4: Cape Pillar Lodge - Fortescue Bay

Approximately 6 hours walking (Cape Hauy side trip optional)

Time to farewell Cape Pillar's safe forest haven. From here you’ll cross Retakunna Creek (local indigenous dialect for creaking trees) en route to a patch of rainforest. Breathe it in - lush mosses, ferns and vibrant greens. Next mission is the peninsula’s highest peak, Mount Fortescue, climbing some 490 metres above sea level. Enjoy lunch with leafy-framed ocean views overlooking The Monument.

Take the side trip and enjoy the majesty of Cape Hauy - or simply remain with the group for a final cliff-walk descent onto the cool white sands of Fortescue Bay. This is your chance to drop the pack and sink your toes in pristine sands or perhaps take a celebratory dive into the crystal clear waves. We will then travel back to Hobart via the airport. We will finish in Hobart with a glass of celebratory bubbles.
