  • Description


    We have a 15 acre farm in southern Tasmania close to a town called Huonville; right in the centre of the cherry and apple farming district.
    My husband, daughter and myself live on the property along with our cat and many farm animals! We have sheep, turkeys, chickens, ducks and quail. We are walking distance from public transport which is very convenient. There is a superb local bakery called ’Summer Kitchen’ a short walk from our home and the Huon river is also walking distance. My daughter is always happy to be a bit of a tour guide! You will have three meals (+ morning and afternoon tea) and your own room in our house. We look forward to having you come stay!
