***Things to see and do***
We are located on a small farm, which guests are welcome to explore at their leisure. Children are welcome, and will enjoy exploring the farmyard and interacting with the farm animals - sheep, chickens, ducks, pony etc. Admire the 360 degree views over the paddocks to Mount Wellington and surrounding countryside or relax and enjoy the peace and restful atmosphere.
Stay around Christmas time and feast on raspberries that you can pick yourself from our large berry patch, or from February look for lovely peaches and plums in our orchard. Other times of the year we may be pruning, working with the sheep, tree planting or cutting hay.
Just 3 minutes drive away is Richmond village, with its historic bridge and rich history. Feed the ducks near the river or hire a small boat and explore Richmond from the water. Visit Old Hobart Town, the Richmond Gaol (Jail) or Zoo Doo and see all sorts of native and exotic animals, plus feed the kangaroos. The Coal Valley is also renowned for its multitude of vineyards and local produce in season, including cherries and apricots.
Further afield you can take a drive through Hobart, up Mt Wellington and see amazing views, or visit the Tahune Airwalk, Salmon Ponds, Mt. Field or Port Arthur. A few hours drive will take you to Wineglass Bay or Launceston.
