Where you’ll be

New Norfolk, Tasmania, Australia

New Norfolk is the last major township before the world class trails of Maydena Bike Park. The unit has a paved yard with a small shed, external water supply and hose pipe which provides a suitable area for cleaning and sorting out bikes.

It is five minutes walk to the award winning Agrarian Kitchen restaurant and a variety of other eating venues including pubs, cafes, a Chinese restaurant and a number of fish and chip shops and takeaways.
There are a number of scenic walks which can be accessed from the unit including a walk along the rivulet to the riverside walks where you can take a refreshing swim in the river on a hot summer day, or up into the green hills,of nearby Lachlan. Tynwald Park is approx 10 minutes walk and houses children's playgrounds, barbecue areas, playing fields and outdoor exercise equipment. For boating and fishing enthusiasts, the nearest river boat ramp is approx. 5 minutes drive from the unit. The town centre of new Norfolk is famous for its many antique shops, bric-à-brac centres, cafes and quirky little shops - all within five minutes walk of the unit.

The wonderful Museum of New and Modern Art - MONA - is about 15 minutes drive from New Norfolk and another 15 minutes on will find yourself in the city centre of Hobart, with Mt Wellington, Salamanca, the Wharf, the Museums and all the attractions that this picturesque city has. Any direction out of Hobart will lead you to amazing long sandy beaches and little bays as well as scenic drives through rolling hills or you can choose from many wine tours that meander through the wine regions past many popular vineyards.

If you head north from New Norfolk you will drive past many hop and fruit farms before quickly entering the ancient forests, lakes Anne wilderness areas of Central Tasmania. Boating and fly fishing are very popular in the Central; Highlands with a large number of lakes and rivers to choose from. It is possible to book guides and adventure tours to provide guided access to some of the more unusual areas and the activities they offer but there are also many bush walks and trails which support the more adventurous in accessing these areas themselves.

Please remember that the Tasmanian Wilderness can be forbidding and dangerous to those not well prepared due to sudden weather changes and potentially harsh conditions. Make sure your trips are well planned and that you are well equipped if being more adventurous and always sign yourself in and out from the more challenging bush walk in the record books provided at the beginnings of the walks.

We are sure you will have a fantastic time in Tasmania and hope that you will find our little unit comfortable and relaxing as you explore the area.U

We moved to Tassie from the UK 19 years ago and love every bit of this beautiful island. We have travelled extensively around the globe with our kids and have friends spread around who we love to catch up with. Airbnb is a great platform through which we can both rent accomodation ourselves and let our own little holiday unit in Tasmania. We love music and art and more of our family work in healthcare than other fields - boring I guess but suitable professions for people who travel a lot! We are really enjoying meeting both our hosts and our guests through Airbnb :)
