Hosts David and Penelope and dogs, Bob and Champ.
Cleburne Homestead is a jewel of authentic Colonial architecture, hidden in a loop of the East Derwent Highway only fifteen minutes from the Hobart GPO. It is registered with the National Estate and the National Trust. The sandstone Barn, Cottage and Homestead cluster round a tree-sheltered courtyard on four acres of grounds where peacocks stroll and alpacas graze. Each suite is unique but all have original colonial features that contrast with modern furnishings for your comfort. 12 mins drive
Tasmania's beauty was so seductive we moved here from Melbourne in 2002. David has worked in theatre, education and journalism and now, when not working at Cleburne, writes poetry and plays. After careers in education, the visual arts and hospitality, Penelope is actively involved in Green politics. Owning Cleburne is a delight and having four and a half acres has given us the opportunity share our home with alpacas, sheep, geese and peacocks. We also have two Hungarian Pulis, Bob and Champ, and our two cats Go-go and Di-di. We both enjoy sharing the delights of Cleburne and Tasmania with our guests.
Cleburne Homestead makes a convenient base from which to explore Southern Tasmania. The city centre is only a fifteen minute drive, MONA the exciting Museum or old and new art is just across the river. Historic Richmond Town is ten minutes away and the beautiful Coal River Valley dotted with wineries makes a pleasant afternoon drive. Closer to home, just across the Bowen Bridge is the Derwent Entertainment Centre, the Royal Hobart Showgrounds and the Elwick Racecourse.
