Located on the East Coast of Tasmania and offering a range of accommodation options for families, backpackers, schools groups and large groups of 100 and more, Gumleaves is set on 400 acres of natural bushland where you can enjoy a host of activities.

Some of the activities you can enjoy at Gumleaves include:

For those that just want to take the family away for the day, Gumleaves offers Family Park Passes. This Park Pass allows access to our onsite activities and facilities – including barbecue sites, adventure playgrounds, mini golf, lake and tennis courts. Family Park Passes are also available for purchase for guests in the camping and caravan parks. This Pass will allow access to all on site activities for your group or family – you will only need to purchase a single Park Pass to cover access for the duration of your stay.
School Camp Activities
We have put together a 'School Kit' booklet that is helpful when planning a camp at Gumleaves. You can find a copy on our Guest Information page. It contains suggested activities, worksheets and other useful bits and pieces to assist you in planning a camp.
There is a short orienteering course available for use by any visitors to Gumleaves. You will need to bring your own compass and a copy of the relevant course forms, which are available to print off from our Guest Information page.
Water Based Activities
Gumleaves has a handful of row boats and canoes as well as life jackets available for your use. For larger groups, or where you need group members to have matching watercraft, we would recommend bringing your own watercraft – there is vehicle access to the lake, and permanent jetties. In the warmer months, (for the braver visitors!) you may wish to go swimming in the lake. Please note that Gumleaves do not provide life guards, so it will be a requirement of your group to provide appropriate supervision.
If you run out of things to do on site (which we doubt!), you can also use Gumleaves as a base from which day trips can be organised. Coles Bay and Freycinet National Park is just over an hour to the north, and the ferry to Maria Island National Park is just 20 minutes to the south. Visits to either of these National Parks will give your group a wonderful opportunities to learn about Tasmania’s past, to get physical and get back to nature. For more nearby attractions click here.
