In addition to the sheep and cows on the farm itself, there is abundant wildlife for glampers to discover in the surrounding nature, including varying species of bird, platypuses floating along the river, the famous Tasmanian devils, and wallabies.

There are varying lengths and difficulties of hikes that glampers can choose from, with features such as cascading waterfalls, deep-seated canyons, and lofty mountains.
Car trips around the area also give glampers numerous options for activities. They can indulge in the wine culture of the region or sample the fresh produce from the local farms.

In the spring, Table Cape, which is just over an hour away, blooms with hundreds of bright, colorful tulips.
