Location + Surroundings
This 19th-century country cottage is located on the central northwest coast of the Australian island of Tasmania. Nestled on a 500-acre pastoral property along a river, the property is within hiking distance of magnificent waterfalls, unique wildlife, and enchanting landscapes. It is only a 15-minute drive from Leven Canyon with its awe-inspiring view from the cliff-face, as well as near to the Penguin to Cradle Trail, which provides a spectacular view of the coastline of Tasmania from the sea to some of the tallest mountains on the island.
A 45-minute drive away is Black Bluff, and a climb to the top, at 1339 meters (4393 feet) above sea level, gives an immense view of the land below. Cradle Mountain is an hour drive away and is home to an expansive natural park with three lakes. There are several charming coastal towns to discover such as Ulverstone, which is 30-40 minutes away by car. It is a laid-back town where glampers can bird watch, have a scenic picnic, or swim at the family-friendly beaches.
For city-inclined glampers, Launceston is an hour and 45 minutes away, which is home to art museums and galleries, lush parks, and gardens, and the Cataract Gorge with its famous chairlift for glampers to experience sweeping panoramic views. In addition, the capital of Hobart is three and a half hours away. This delightful city sits along a river and is set against the towering Mount Wellington. It is host to many historic areas, including Salamanca Place, with its old sandstone warehouses that have been converted into galleries and cafes, and Battery Point, with its colonial-era cottages.

- Bird watching
- Wine tasting
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. This is an exclusive opportunity for glampers to see these animals in their own environment. 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. Glampers can also take a scenic drive to Woolnorth, a coastal area with an option to tour a historic dairy farm. In the spring, Table Cape, which is just over an hour away, blooms with hundreds of bright, colorful tulips. There are many charming fishing villages and breathtaking natural areas within driving distance as Tasmania is a relatively small island at 68,401 square kilometers.
