Wildlife

We have one request when staying, please take your shoes off inside the cottages. Why? We have such an abundance of wildlife outside the door, including Platypus, Wallabies, Pademelons, Potoroos, Bandicoots and Possums amongst others, as well as a myriad of birdlife, all of whom leave small traces behind them! 

Platypus

We are extremely fortunate to have several platypuses in our pond just a step from the restaurant and cottages. You should be able to spot these beautiful creatures after a leisurely dinner in the restaurant or before breakfast in your cottage. (Please note that the Platypus are most active from October to May, but tend to be elusive during the winter months).

Birdlife

Tasmania has twelve species of bird which are found nowhere else on Earth…..

In this area you will be able to spot scarlet and dusky robins, the superb blue wren, the pink robin, green rosellas, yellow-tailed black and sulphur-crested white cockatoos and yellow wattle-birds among many others.
