The space
The Burrow is our home away from home - this is where we come to get away and we like to think it is quiet, clean, comfortable and cosy.
Please note the wood fireplace is not in use.
We have it family friendly and that includes having our fur-baby Luna travel with us. We have both the small back yard and the front yard fully fenced for this reason. We understand how important our pets can be and will consider other pets staying at The Burrow (outdoors) - so please ask.

Where you’ll be

Waratah, Tasmania, Australia

Waratah is a picturesque town midway between Burnie and Cradle Mountain. The town features a number of historical buildings including Philospher Smith's Hut and The Bischoff Hotel and is well worth exploring. With the main street only 300m away it is an easy walk past the lake.
The Roadhouse is prominent on Smith Street as you drive in or out of town. It is open 7am - 6pm 7 days per week and can supply all your basic needs, including take away food and petrol.
Further along this road you will find the Waratah Museum, The Athaneum, the Post Office, the Stamper Mill and also the top of the waterfall. If you continue along past the old post office you will find the perfect location to view the waterfall across from the Bischoff Hotel.
While you are there stop in at The Bischoff Hotel for a drink or stay for dinner - they do a Monster Chicken Schnitzel that my son LOVES!
Just up from the hotel is The Mushroom Cafe - a great place to grab lunch and a coffee.
Wander around the lake - it's a nice easy stroll and keep an eye out for Platypus - they do exist and are best spotted at either Dusk or Dawn.

I live on the NSW central coast at beautiful Lake Macquarie with my little man Christopher and fur baby Luna the Bulldog. It was my love for photography and travel that first led to exploring Cradle Mountain and eventually resulted in searching for our own little holiday home nearby. That is how we first came across "The Burrow" at Waratah - It truly was a labour of love turning it into something we are proud to call our own and happy to share with others. So nice we did it twice...... When presented with the opportunity to buy the adjoining unit we couldn't resist. Again it was time to roll up the sleeves and do some work and so "The Wombat Burrow " was born. This was our chance to create a holiday home that offered us the flexibilty to do solo travels, family trips or share our adventures with our extended family and friends . We are pleased to be able to share this with you and we hope you enjoy your travels in wonderful Waratah as much as we do.
