Stay in a luxury romantic gypsy wagon at Heimat Chalets, on 100 acres of picturesque farmland in the heart of Derwent Valley, north west of Hobart. This gorgeous little hideaway with an ensuite attached was built locally, and is located on a farmstay property with many animals such as friendly alpacas, sheep, cows, a miniature donkey and goats. Cook sausages in the very rustic communal BBQ hut, while you enjoy a glass of chilled wine, or a couple of lagers.
There is much to see and do around New Norfolk, Tasmania's antique capital. Try some seasonal trout fishing - permit required - or visit the nearby Salmon Ponds, a heritage trout hatchery, gardens and museum. Take some cooking classes at The Agrarian Kitchen, a sustainable farm based cooking school. Take a whiskey tour at the nearby Redlands Estate. Visit Russell Falls or the fabulous Styx Forest, and see the tallest trees on earth.
