My husband and I stayed in the Fon Hock spa cottage on our last two nights of our Tasmanian Honeymoon. It was exactly what we needed after 2 weeks of camping. The cabin was cosy and after big days on the blue derby tracks we loved coming home to fish in the river before wrapping up the day with best...

My husband and I stayed at Tin Dragon Trail Cottages for two nights and really loved this place. It is a beautiful secluded retreat. We loved sitting in the spa watching the alpacas in the sun during the day and watching the stars at night.

Such a gorgeous setting! Babbling water, lowing cattle, rolling pasture and bush trails. The cottages are thoughtfully appointed and generously provisioned. The owners were friendly and welcoming. And who can go past a beautiful outdoor bath - utter relaxation!

We stayed 3 nights and it was wonderful. The cottage was very clean, quiet and fully self contained. Our breakfast was in the fridge with eggs from their chooks, bacon, bread,coffee, tea.... The place is a heaven on earth with welcoming owners. Graeme was very nice and told us about his settling in the area, the tin mine history and...

We were absolutely spoilt with the amount of provisions here, bacon, eggs, choccies, wine, beer, fresh baked bread on arrival, it was all so good - too much to mention: Definitely spring for the indulgence package. There is no way you could be cold, the heating is amazing, the space cozy but not cramped, just perfect for two. The amenities...

Well what a find. We stayed at Ah Ping cottage with one Queen bed and two singles. Excellent facilities and a small but nice supply of breakfast provisions. Wonderful grounds to roam and meet the fauna including resident alpacas and chooks. The river had just been in flood so unfortunately couldn't use the the kayaks - maybe next time. Owners...

We stayed here for two nights with our 3 active children - and it was a great place for us. The kids loved the creek and the animals and there is some wonderful scenery, walks and waterfalls to discover. Definitely worth making the trip around the waterfalls and stop in at Pyengana Dairy/Holy Cow Cafe - yum! If your kids...

Have stayed here twice. First was an anniversary in the luxury cabins mid winter last year. While it was lovely we discovered the 8 person cabin with full kitchen option and couldn't wait to bring the kids back to ride the trails at Derby. Returned in March with the kids and some friends and had an awesome holiday. Campfire in...

Hey Martin! Thank you for your review. This is our first review of the Settler's Hut, which we set up for MTBers and bush-walkers. The Blue Derby trails are amazing and truly world-class, so we are not surprised you had a first-class adventure experience. Of course the hut is set up to accommodate six, but we are pleased we were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We offer romance, seclusion and privacy in fully self-contained two-bedroom and studio spa-cottages each with river views - situated on a 36 acre bush alpaca farm. Each cottage has a private outdoor dining area with bar-be-que and the studio cottages have an outdoor heated spa. Principles of ecological sustainability are combined with the comforts of a luxurious retreat. Your only disturbance might be from the occasional inquisitive pademelon or soaring eagle. This stretch of the Ringarooma River is favored by fly fishermen. Chinese heritage is celebrated with an interpretation centre, landscape art and walking tracks through historic mining and water races. ... more   less
