Roosters Rest is situated on the outskirts of Port Sorell amid attractive gardens and surrounded by five acres of natural bush land. Wallabies and bandicoots can be seen in the evening and love some apple and carrot for a treat. Whether your holiday includes bushwalking, cycling touring, fishing or walking on the beach Roosters Rest is a great place to base your stay to explore the picturesque North West of Tasmania. You can start the Food and Wine Trail at Ghost Rock Winery and visit Anvers Chocolates, Ashgrove Cheese, Spreyton Cide to name but a few the region has to offer. Cradle Mountain is only one and a half hours drive and Launceston an hour. Both ideal for a day out! There is a lovely Barbeque area so you can relax outside under the shady trees or just chill out on your own verandah. Roosters Restblooks forward to,your company.
