qualia (pronounced kwah-leea) is located on the northern most point of Hamilton Island and offers sixty chic guest pavilions.

However the elegance of its interiors and fittings and the excellence of its amenities and services places it among the best international resort experiences.

Days 4 & 5 – Hobart to Saffire

The Freycinet Peninsula extends south-eastwards from Tasmania’s coastline and is a gazetted National Park that includes the internationally acclaimed Wineglass Bay. Freycinet’s landscapes are soft and warm pink granite mountains, white sand beaches, grey-green casuarinas and seawater blue as sapphire!

Saffire is located on the inside of the gentle curve of sandy coastline that joins the peninsula to mainland Tasmania and overlooks the wide expanses of Great Oyster Bay, where migrating whales and dolphins come to play. Local farms produce fresh, succulent oysters in some of the world’s cleanest waters; and fishing boats and trawlers bring in their daily catch of crayfish, scallops and deep sea fish, dripping and salty-sweet straight from the ocean.

The Signature Suites offer an open plan living area, an outdoor relaxation area and an ensuite bathroom. They have been furnished in an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary, with locally made timber pieces alongside mid-century classics.
