Nestle yourself amongst the wildlife in the beautiful retreat which overlooks the South Esk river - the longest river in Tasmania, it winds its way across Tasmania and ends up in the famous Cataract Gorge. Magnificent views of the river and wildlife are from both bedrooms, the living area, and the gorgeous deck, you'll forget you are just 15 minutes from Launceston city centre. Relax whilst you watch the myriad of birds which visit the deck, and watch more wildlife on your TV via the infrared cameras in the backyard which pick up the wildlife antics of an evening. Complimentary Wi Fi, movies, I Pod, parking and a huge balcony to relax on. A beautiful base for exploring the north of Tasmania, within a 15 minute drive you can visit, the famous Cataract Gorge, museums, wineries, golf courses, towns extensive restaurants and Tamar cruise, within an hours drive you may like to visit more wineries, caves, wildlife parks, beaches, national parks, lavender farm, Tamanina's food trail, Devonport, Deloraine, Sheffield the town of Murals, Liffey Falls and the famous Derby off road bike tracks, within 2 hours enjoy Cradle Mountain, Barnbougle golf course and more water falls and walks.
It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the retreat. I have worked in the tourism and hospitality market for 40 years and moved to Tasmania in 2009 and love my home and am happy to share a a piece of this paradise with the guests. As time goes on the garden is being changed to work with the Australian flora and fauna. The garden is now registered as a garden for wildlife. I am trained as a wildlife rescuer and keep an eye out for all the visiting wildlife. There is times that there is not much food in the bush for the wildlife therefore I provide the wildlife with some food at these times, having guests helps me to do this, so thank you. My motto is welcome guests but say good bye to friends.
Blackstone Heights in an upmarket outer suburb of Launceston, all properties are on large blocks and it has the longest river of Tasmania running through it called the South Esk River which ends up in the famous Cataract Gorge in town of Launceston. Blackstone Heights gives you the feel you are in the bush yet you have the convenience of the centre of town being just 12 mins away. We do have the Country Club Casino, golf club and hours riding just 5 minutes away. Blackstone Heights has a walk along the river, duck pond and park for children with a playground and BBQ area.
