A unique Tasmanian art and architectural experience.

Cantilevered over stunning rugged coast at Table Cape, 10 minutes from Burnie-Wynyard Airport serviced daily from Melbourne with interstate connections.
Winner of ASI design, creativity, innovation and Institute of Architects' awards.
The ASI citation reads: "To get to The Winged House, you drop off Tollymore Road, leaving behind the striped tulip fields of Table Cape.
Your first view is of a plane or bird - or maybe a giant silver moth - perched halfway down the giant precipitous slope and poised to take off.
As you drive closer, it stays and waits: becoming more house less bird.
Then you enter and are suspended, not just by the grandeur of the view beneath your feet, but by this moment of arrested flight. You are inside this bird/plane: you feel you really could take off, over the cliffs, sliding through the gently buffeting airs rising above the sun-polished sea.
Flying off and away - and this feeling is the essence of 'holiday'.
The brief was to create a holiday retreat - a place to get away from the complexity of city life with its daily froth of news, politics and social events. A place to uplift the spirits from the dense memory of work; a place that would quietly insist on a sense of peace and, as a work of art, seek a continuing and deeper response".
Australian Steel Institute 2008 Design Award.
Highly commended: Innovation and creativity.
The Winged House is fully serviced luxury accommodation (two double bedrooms plus extra futons) with complimentary Tasmanian wine, gourmet kitchen, Japanese bath and broadband internet.
The Winged House is at the gateway to Tasmania's World Heritage-listed wilderness and a short drive to the Tarkine, now one of the island's hottest eco-tourism destinations.
Accredited by the Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania, the house has been internationally acclaimed in Conde Naste Traveller, U.K. and Australian Vogue and the architectural and design press.
