28 gates was originally a stables and grain lofts built in 1936 (unfortunately we don't have any photos) and then shearers quarters. We did a major renovation which took about 2 years and opened in November 2011. We are a 6th generation family owned business dating back to 1862. The farm has diversified in many areas and there is plenty for guests to see and explore. We welcome all ages and cultures and hope we can share our little piece of luxury in the country with you all. We are hands on and want to make your experience unique and special. Our main goal is to hopefully have guests leaving refreshed, revitalised and relaxed when they leave 28 gates.
We are a family owned business and decided to renovate the building which is now 28 gates Luxury Farmstay & Fishery, as we want to have guests experience our piece of luxury. We knew we had something special here, as we are only a 1 hours drive from Hobart but 10kms off the main highway so you feel remote. It is very private and so guests have the place to themselves. Please ask us any questions and we are more than happy to answer them. We had never been involved in Tourism, so it was a new venture which has been wonderful with a few ups and downs!. We enjoy meeting people and showing them our property. We have 3 children between the pages of 13 and 18 who all love the farm. It is such a wonderful life to grow up on and we really enjoy having children at 28 gates for them to experience farm life, animals, space, fresh air and of course privacy. We are so pleased that we took the big step into Tourism, we so enjoy what we do and hope we can share our piece of luxury with you all.
Our property is 5000 acres and so there is plenty of experiences to do here including, fishing, walking, farm tour, native wild life tour, feeding our pets, picnics, photography tuition, fly fishing tuition and of course relaxation. In the area: Mt Field National Park is only a 45 minute drive from us. This is a beautiful area with many different wonderful walks for all ages. In the Winter you will more than likely see snow. Salmon Ponds is only a 40 minutes drive and is the oldest hatchery in the Southern Hemisphere with a interesting and informative museum of the history of fishing. You can feed the fish, have a bite to eat in the cafe or even have a picnic. We are fortunate to have 2 incredible cooking schools only 40 minute drive from us including The Agrarian Experience and Sally Wises cooking school...highly recommend both! Tassiebound Kayaking experience is a wonderful activity to do with family or friends on the beautiful Derwent River. There is even a late afternoon platypus tour. There are plenty more experiences in the area...we can give you lots of ideas.
