Couple stayed for 4 nights during winter. Views are fantastic. House needs attention. One of the reasons for selecting here was the mention of an open fire. This had been boarded up prior to our arrival - too many incidents with previous occupants. Premises has...More

About the neighbourhood
On or adjacent to our properties are swimming in the Derwent, fishing, boating or just walking in the parks. If you bring a bike you can use it! If not use ours! The Derwent provides opportunities for white water canoeing or jetboating further upstream at the historic town of New Norfolk or enjoy a more relaxing time playing golf or bowling at local clubs.

Cadburys, Moorilla, MONA, Richmond, Salmon Ponds and Bonorong Wildlife Park are all family favourites and close by. There is an RSL, golfing and bowling clubs less than a couple of km away.
Getting around
Tasmania is endowed with every activity possible from jetboating to skiing, from mountain climbing to some of the best walking in the world. Snorkelling or surfing, fishing or just snoozing on a beach are all within an hour or so of Derwent Vista. For those who like dining, nightclubing or gambling, Hobart's inner suburbs of North Hobart and Salamanca are just a 15 minute drive away and Australia's first licensed casino, Wrest Point is just a 20 minute drive away. Salamanca market is a must on Saturday, MONA and Moorilla winery is very close to spend the afternoon listening to jazz and tasting their wares. If history and old buildings are your interest, Richmond is only 35 minutes away.

How to get there
Airport: Hobart Airport: 30.0 km
Ferry: Devonport: 261.0 km
Find your way onto the old Main Road and follow it north or south as the case may be to Austins Ferry. Austins Ferry Road is opposite the stone gates to historic Roseneath Park between two groups of shops. Turn down Austins Ferry Road towards the yacht club. Go over a rail crossing. Stay on Austins Ferry road and keep going to the yacht club and then turn left into the car park. Drive through the car park, a short way across the park and then up a slight hill and to the right and you are there. Note that there is room for parking up to two or three cars at our properties.
