Gumleaves Bush Holidays offers a unique experience for the backpacker. Far from the dark, dingy and crowded backpacker hostels that are found throughout the world, Gumleaves offers affordable, clean and relatively private accommodation set in a 400-acre bushland setting on the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania.

We are located 115 km from Hobart and 175 km from Launceston – midway between Swansea and Orford. We are also conveniently located 15 minutes from the ferry to Maria Island and 90 minutes south of iconic Freycinet National Park.

Rates are kept low, meaning you can stay for an extended period at Gumleaves and share experiences with fellow travellers in the campers kitchen and shared activities area.
