    Moon River Retreat is lovingly and immaculately presented. Mon is the best host one could wish for. We booked the retreat as it about 5km from the Gourmet Farmers restaurant. Mon offered us transport to and from Fat Pig Farm which allowed us to...

Moon River is a spacious, luxurious semi-detached villa just 45 minutes south of Hobart in the stunning Huon Valley, close to the village of Cygnet. With spectacular, 180-degree views over the beautiful bay and the surrounding hills, Moon River has a sophisticated, relaxing interior, which makes it an ideal get-away for one or two couples travelling together. Sleeping up to four comfortably, with one Q and one D bedroom, it’s the perfect base from which to explore the attractions of the Huon Valley, or somewhere to just relax and reconnect with a loved one.
Hi prospective guests. I live on the property in an ajoining semi-detached house with two small dogs, Mitzi and Scruff, having moved down from NSW six years ago having fallen in love with Gardners Bay, Cygnet and the Channel! My son, Matt, also lives on the property, in the Studio. We hope your stay here will be just what you want it to be - I can guarantee the hospitality, but unfortunately not the weather! Looking forward to hosting your stay!
Moon River is just a 5-minute drive away from the charming local village of Cygnet, which is well known for arts, music and boating. You’ll find everything you need here including a supermarket, bank, post office, newsagent, petrol station, pub, churches, organic food outlets, bakery and chemist as well as cafes and art galleries. There’s also a great community growers’ market in the village held on the first and third Sundays of the month. Local attractions If you plan on exploring a little further afield, you’ll be amazed how much there is to do in the local area. Here are our top picks: Bruny Island Tahune Airwalk Verona Sands (beach), Drip Beach Franklin - Historical village and Wooden Boat Centre - lunch on the water or at nearby cafes Huon Trail Hartz Mountains Hastings Cave Numerous vineyards with winetasting and restaurants
