What to Do in Tasmania
We know it is hard to travel with equipment these days so fishing gear is provided. If you would like to borrow our canoes, bikes, and discs for the nearby disc golf course, please let us know.
On or adjacent to our properties are swimming in the Derwent, fishing, boating or just walking in the parks. If you bring a bike you can use it! If not use ours!
The Derwent provides opportunities for white water canoeing or jetboating further upstream at the historic town of New Norfolk or enjoy a more relaxing time playing golf or bowling at local clubs.
Cadburys, Moorilla, MONA, Richmond, Salmon Ponds, Alpenrail and Bonorong Wildlife Park are all family favourites and close by. There is an RSL, golfing and bowling clubs less than a couple of km away.
Tasmania is endowed with every activity possible from jetboating to skiing, from mountain climbing to some of the best walking in the world. Snorkelling or surfing, fishing or just snoozing on a beach are all within an hour or so of our properties. For those who like dining, nightclubing or gambling, Hobart's inner suburbs of North Hobart and Salamanca are just a 15 minute drive away and Australia's first licensed casino, Wrest Point is just a 20 minute drive away. Salamanca market is a must on Saturday, MONA and Moorilla winery is very close to spend the afternoon listening to jazz and tasting their wares. If history and old buildings are your interest, Richmond is only 35 minutes away.
