Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I booked an economy room for an overnight stay but was pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to the Lakeside cabins. Reception was closed but I was emailed instructions including information to bring food as everything is closed. I arrived at the estate on a very wet day, reception building to pick up keys was easy to find and my cabin was heated which was much appreciated. The cabin is spacious and clean. It has a full kitchen, separate lounge, bedroom and bathroom. There was a reverse cycle ac in the kitchen/ dining area and a wall panel heater in the bedroom. Free bottled water is supplied. Bed is comfortable. I had a walk around the estate the next morning and took some photos of the highlander cows on the paddock in front of the cabin. The estate is well maintained and lovely. I couldn’t find the start of the eagle or quoll walking track but the Tarraleah falls track is just past the bridge from the hydroelectric lookout and is well signed and maintained. Overall I had a fantastic time at the estate and would recommend it to others.

We’ve had two stays in the Engineers' cottages at Tarraleah Estate and loved it both times. The cottages comfortably accommodate up to six adults in three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the living/dining areas are cosy, well equipped and functional. But it is the overall ambience of the place that is memorable - nicely landscaped grounds, attractive buildings and a bar/restaurant that serves surprisingly good food.
Covid has obviously had some impact - the restaurant menu was limited when we visited but the meals were top rate. We wished we’d had longer to play a bit of golf and do some walking. Best of all is the peace and quiet and the deep dark nights with a fire but no TV.

Campground is on the estate, amidst pastures,cottages and a lake.
There is a shower/ toilet/ laundry block,no kitchen,space for campervan is spacious and on grass. U can walk around the estate, check out the cottages and feed the longhorn cattle.
The shop offers a range of more high end souvenirs, esp beautiful leather bags, but no food or supplies. Bring whatever u need. There is a cafe, closes 4pm, and a restaurant, though.
We really enjoyed it. U can have a look at those huge water pipes running down the mountain.
There is a trek to tarraleah falls, which takes a bit of a search to find the sign. It is also not too well maintained.
That's maybe the only downside. There is no proper sign for the trails and also coming from the main road, all it says is , tarraleah estate,. So we doubted for quite a while, driving into the estate, that it was the right way

Myself and my wife were looking forward to staying here when in March 2022 the then manager Angie from guest Services upgraded us to one of the cottages on site see below
27/03/22
I have upgraded your booking to the Pavillion cottage at no extra cost as per our discussions.
See you in Feb 2023.

Tarraleah Estate
When we arrived the NEW receptionist (or maybe guest services manager) advised me that the Pavillion Cottage had been taken over by staff in September 2022 yet I had not been contacted and advised or offered another cottage on site. I did find out later that the Receptionist and her partner were living there.
This was not an ideal start to my wife and I staying at the location
We were then allocated back to a studio room in the scholars house (that was booked back in March 2022) which stated on the Booking.com site as "Entire Unit wheelchair friendly" which was not the case.
Only the ground floor with the queen bed and bathroom could be accessed with going up 2 flights of stairs to sit in a loft area with tea and coffee and fridge provided up there.
There was nowhere to put the suitcases in such a small area.
I have attached photos to show the small studio room which was not ideal for an senior couple with sore legs.
There was also NO wifi on site and for the price you pay to stay there you would think that would be included.

For the record I was advised by the receptionist that there were no other cottages available and I couldn't be moved yet when I went for a walk not many of the cottages along the main road were occupied by anyone.

If I could take a positive out of the experience it was the highland cows and the meal at the Highlander restaurant.

Our accommodation was one of the Engineer Cottages. It brought back many memories of our family home which was built in the early 1950's. It was a lovely warm welcome on a cold day - the heat pumps around the home were on and the wood fire was set to light and the dinner provided was bubbling away emitting yummy aromas. It was a warm, comfortable stay. The Estate was lovey to walk around with a range of ducks roaming around and the Highland Coos were very friendly. Can't wait to return.

We camped here. It has well distanced and generous camping sites, and great bathrooms, but unfortunately there is no camp kitchen. All sites have power and there are many animals and birds around the park. Our problem was that the distance from Tarreleah to Lake St Clair and other places we wanted to visit were just too far to make our stay viable for the number of days we booked. The staff are lovely and service great.

We stayed in the Tarraleah Highland Caravan Park in the Estate. The Estate is the hydro village which was built in the 1930s, really well maintained grounds that you can walk around. Lovely camping area with trees between the sites, power but need to boil water before drinking. Amenities are getting old but are clean with hot showers. The estate sits above the hydro station and at the entrance are the penstock pipes and part of the hydro station. There are 4 shorts walks, we did the Tarraleah Falls and Quoll Walk, both are lovely walks. There is a cafe on site (didn't try the food, but it looked nice) and the Highland Arms pub which we did try and it was VERY! nice, had the Sweet and Sour Chicken and the Duck Pancakes with a serve of chips. The Tarraleah Apple and Cherry Cider is also very nice. Lots of wallabies and possums around the area, as well as some geese and other birds.

My husband and I decided to stay at Tarraleah to break up the drive from south of Hobart to Strahan and were so glad we did. Loved the tranquility, and history of the place (my grand father worked for the Hydro, so a family connection for me) . We chose a Lakeside cabin and found it spacious (had a separate living room), warm, and very quiet - just the amusing resident geese and some night time critter activity. The restored cottages looked lovely, and would be great for a larger group. Could easily have spent another day here, relaxing and doing some of the walks around the estate.

Our accommodation was in the Scholars House; a duplex. The building was barn like and the room had high ceilings. Novel for us. It was cold and I found an extra quilt in the hallway "bedbox" which was lucky. There is proficient heating in the room. The keys were awkward and we helped another couple to turn theirs. Just as well we did because there is no-one on duty over the weekend after Saturday lunch time and so there is a feeling of nobody looking after the place. There was a wood fire but we didn't know how to use it and no-one to ask. There are tables and chairs and a kitchen to cook food. There was a laundry room which was excellent. We went to the Highlanders for dinner which was nice and had a walk the next morning in the local forest next to the dam. The forest smelled lovely and although the waterfall was low the walk was the highlight of our stay.

I recently stayed here as part of a tour group. I did not enjoy my stay and I wouldn’t return. I didn’t give a 1 as your grounds are so pretty and picturesque.

No phone reception, no wifi was very confronting but dealt with it. My room had a weird smell, my bed was sunken inn the middle and had no proper blinds on the windows. A very average continental breakfast supplied..

Restaurant was average and overpriced. Staff not friendly and had attitudes. Food wasn’t very nice or had any great taste. Limited wine selection. You’re stuck as there is nowhere else to eat.

The only good thing going for this place are the grounds are just lovely, and lots of wildlife.
