Saffire Freycinet
Contemporary indigenous artist Mick Quilliam leads the freshly minted Connection to Country Walks at Saffire Freycinet, an exclusive 20-suite retreat on Tasmania’s eastcoast. This part of Australia was once home to the Paredarerme people—at one time, the largest Aboriginal tribe on the island—and Quilliam escorts guests on a complimentary coastal walk to discover their heritage and culture. You’ll learn about native flora and fauna and Paredarerme foraging traditions, check out ancient hunting and cooking tools, and visit centuries-old middens of oyster shells.
