Ten years ago, a big vision was quietly pursued in sleepy Coles Bay. Now crowned as one of the best luxury lodges in the world, Saffire Freycinet has welcomed nearly 20,000 guests in the last decade from near and far. But it’s not just indulgent dining, jaw-dropping architecture or fine linen that has created its success… it’s our Tasmanian community, and the Tasmanian way of life.

As we turn ten, we reflect on the perfect synergy it takes to create such a unique and iconic experience. Our guides, our producers, winemakers and oyster farmers are the ones creating the magic every day. Their dedication to creating meaningful experiences for our guests results in powerful connections to place, and memories that last a lifetime. We can’t thank them enough.

So we’re celebrating together, this year, as people. No matter what’s in store for our next ten years, we know the collaboration, cooperation, determination and pure passion of our Tasmanian people are what will stand the test of time. We pass on our deepest gratitude to everyone who’s played a part in the dream of Saffire Freycinet, and hope you share our joy and pride in recognising this special birthday.

10th birthday open day


For one special day, Saffire is welcoming our locals inside for the first time in history.

Tickets strictly limited, and are a 100% donation to the Wildcare Tasmanian Devil Cause.

We’ll show you around, cook you lunch, and introduce you to the Saffire experience… and you’ll leave knowing you’ve helped our most iconic endangered species.
