Lufra Hotel and Apartments

Eaglehawk Neck’s ‘Lufra’, overlooking Pirates Bay, situated in the South East of Tasmania is said to have ‘the best coastal view in the world’. We provide accommodation, meals, entertainment and an ideal base for travelers to the iconic Tasman Peninsula and the world renowned Port Arthur historic region of the State.

We can accommodate well over 100 guests through a variety of 3 and 4 star apartments, family rooms, and the original hotel rooms in the late 1940s Post Modern/Art Deco hotel.

Lufra is proud to be a forerunner in providing electric charging facilities for visitors to the region. Charging is provided at no cost to customers of the Hotel, whether that be as overnight or extended stay guests, or those that attend any of our events or regular dining offerings.

We can also boast the first EV competitors ever in a Motor HillClimb event in Tasmania; the Lufra to Lookout Motor Hillclimb. Thanks to our EV charging facilities, both Teslas and other EVs charging needs are met (Tesla HPWC for the Model S and two 15 amp sockets.  This fits well with the hotel's eco-sustainable operations, having since inception been totally self-reliant of water and liquid waste management on site.

Our dream is to one day being able to power the hotel through solar and alternative energy sources and to continually improve self-sustainability factors of running an operation of this type.

The walks close to the Hotel are fantastic, the ever popular Tessellated Pavement, Pirates Bay beach walks with great surf, and the Game Fishing base for southern Tasmania. Other local features include the Dog Line, Blowhole, Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen and Waterfall Bay, just one of the cliff top walks for which the whole Tasman Peninsula is famous.

And within 20 minutes; the Port Arthur Historical site, Tasman Island Cruise, the Devil Park, McHenry’s Distillery, Federation Chocolate Factory, Port Arthur Lavender Farm or just enjoy all nature has to offer at the Tasmanian Devil UNZOO, and the newly opened Three Capes.

Lufra is situated just 60 minutes from Hobart; ideally situated for a recharge!
