The Lazy Prospector

Swing away your worries on our rustic handmade bed
Unwind in our deep soak bath with your choice of bespoke Australian Native bath salts or oils.
We’re called The Lazy Prospector for good reason  so stretch out and relax
A plush queen bed with scrumptious linen bedding.
Watch the sun rise over Mount Dundas from the swing bed on the back verandah.
Depending on the  weather, Mount Dundas may be shrouded in mist, snow capped or even glowing pink
Light some candles and create magic on the back verandah of The Lazy Prospector
An ideal central base for two to explore Tasmania’s rugged west coast, and the perfect place to relax after a day of hiking, biking or sightseeing. Full of craftsmanship, The Lazy Prospector is a celebration of yesteryear, with all the modern conveniences. Beautifully restored 130-year-old barn wood features add a rustic charm that calm and soothe. To ensure your stay is comfortable and memorable, enjoy a plush queen-size bed; a sofa large enough for two adults to stretch out in front of the wood fire heater; a deep soak bath; a fire pit and a back verandah with views across to Mount Dundas. You may even be serenaded by local kookaburras, or see wallabies feeding near the cabin at dusk and dawn. Our minimal kitchen has a bar fridge, an induction plug-in cooktop, a convection microwave oven, slow cooker, kettle, toaster and a basic pantry. While the west coast itself is remote, The Lazy Prospector sits on the outskirts of Zeehan and enjoys the company of neighbours. In town, you’ll find an IGA, two pubs and the esteemed West Coast Heritage Centre. If you have the inner callings for adventure, but love your creature comforts, The Lazy Prospector is for you. And after a day of exploring, and a couple of nights of deep sleep, you'll feel refreshed and ready to take on the world.
