5 amazing places to stay in Tassie

As we are now looking closer to home for our holiday destinations, it’s time to unearth the hidden gems in our own backyard. Located on Tasmania’s pristine peninsulas these spacious lodgings are perfect for groups of friends and family.

Low Head Beach House, Low Head, TAS

Low Head Beach House, Low Head
Located on Lagoon Beach at Low Head, about 40 minutes’ drive from Launceston Low Head Bech House features uninterrupted views of the beach and historic Low Head Pilot Station, Café and Museum. The house sleeps six in three king bedrooms with bathrooms. Guests can pre-order produce, including local seafood and Tamar Valley wines, or arrange a private chef experience around the stringybark dining table. It’s a great base, too, for golfers heading to Barnbougle’s The Dunes and Lost Farm links courses just 45 minutes’ drive away.

The Granary, Cressy, TAS

The Granary, Cressy
A 20-minute drive from Launceston, this convict-built stone granary from the early 1800s has been transformed into stylish self-contained accommodation sleeping up to six. Pick fruit from The Granary’s orchard, and stroll its formal and cottage gardens flanked by old oak trees and a hazelnut grove. Or head further afield – follow the Tamar Valley Wine Trail, go fly fishing in the central highlands, explore the nearby convict-era farming estates of Woolmers and Brickendon, and hunt for antique treasures in northern Midlands country towns.

Satellite Island, D’Entrecasteaux Channel, TAS

Satellite Island, D’Entrecasteaux Channel
No roads, no shops, no other guests, no wifi. Just your own 34-hectare island to explore with friends, a fire pit, and a handful of wild deer. Accommodating up to 12 people in the three-bedroom beach house, the two-bedroom boathouse or a queen-size bell tent for summertime glamping you need to bring essentials but otherwise raid the pantry and spirits cupboard for local treats or head to the vegie patch or chook house.

Thalia Haven Great Oyster Bay, TAS

Thalia Haven, Great Oyster Bay
A retreat set on a private peninsula surrounded by the clear waters of Great Oyster Bay and five kilometres of secluded coastline, Thalia accommodates up to ten people in four stone cottages set around courtyards flanked by olive trees. Relax on the private beach, head further afield to the national parks of Freycinet and Maria Island or explore the East Coast Wine Trail.

Dales at Derby, Derby, TAS

Dales at Derby, Derby
If mountain biking is your thing, then Dales is your place. On the banks of the Ringarooma River and close to the town centre, Dales of Derby is the perfect post-trail party pad. Built to a sustainable and award-winning design, the Dales sleeps up to 24 friends and family members in self-contained comfort, with space to gather in a big kitchen and lounge and around campfires outdoors. Just over an hour’s drive north-east of Launceston, the friendly former tin-mining town of Derby is the launchpad for Blue Derby, a network of 125 kilometres of mountain bike trails, and a hub of ventures catering for riders. The town’s main street is lined with bike shops, bike hire, shuttle services and bike workshops, with plenty of rider-friendly accommodation and meals.
