Day Trips

Our luxury farm stay accommodation is ideally located to explore Tasmania’s North West Coast. The seaside town of Penguin is only 8kms, and has lovely cafes, restaurants and of course our Big Penguin, all overlooking the beach. You will also find all the conveniences you need, such as a supermarket, chemist, bank, antique shops and Tasmania’s biggest undercover market.

If you are exploring further why not make your break a lot less stressful and extend your stay with us, thus not having to pack everything into your vehicle everyday and move on. We are centrally located for easy day trips across the north west, and only 30 minutes to the Spirit of Tasmania terminal, making us the ideal first or last stop of your adventure. We offer amazing discounts for stays of 3 nights or longer. Check out our tariff page or contact us for a quote.

Bush Walks and Wildlife

There are numerous bush walks in the area ranging from small easy walks around the farm and our bushland area, to an eight day walk to Cradle Mountain on the Penguin Cradle Trail. Other interesting walks are Thornsby’s Tunnel, a 30 min return walk through stunning bush following a trickling creek to an old silver mine with glow worms. There are walks to Mount Montgomery, Tall Trees, Leven River and Mount Duncan, all around 1-2 hours return. A fantastic area for photography and birdwatching, and discovering the flora and fauna native to the area. At night take a walk around the property with torchlight to see the wildlife in its native habitat, and enjoy the moon and stars in an endless sky.
