CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (COVID-19)
At Freycinet Lodge, the wellbeing, health and safety of our guests and our staff is our first priority.
On an ongoing basis, we operate to a very high standard of cleanliness and environmental health at Freycinet Lodge. We’ve extended our already high standards and have put a number of additional initiatives in place for the safety of our guests and staff.
If you are unsure of whether prior to arrival in Tasmania you may have visited anywhere determined to be 'high risk' and should therefore adhere to Tasmanian public health protocols, please visit the Tasmanian Government's travel alerts page.
