Overview

About the property

A quaint country setting with its own native animal wetland.

Full kitchen,.Pot belly and electric heat. Cosy and romantic.300 metres to pure white 10 klm long untouched beach.

Location

Centrally located on Tasmanias East coast.One of the few truely untouched places left on earth.Situated right on the coast about 10 kilometres south of Scamander along the coastal road, turn off the main road into the quiet little seaside town of Falmouth. Home to a small number of local residents and holidaymakers. Grants lagoon flows out to sea at Falmouth and is a great place for swimming, surfing or a canoe paddle

Small boats can be launched here to access the lobster and flathead fishing grounds in the area. As well as friendly locals.

The East Coast offers by white beaches, secluded, sheltered bays and spectacular headlands. It is Tasmanias sun coast, edged by crystal blue waters and clusters of holiday homes that have tied generations of families to annual bouts of rest and recreation. And the East Coast beckons you to explore beyond the shore and beneath the sea to giant kelp forests and caves, or even further to the continental shelf, where the big game fish run.

All along the coast, bright beaches blaze, and the distinctive blue-green East Coast sea washes the shores. Grey-green sheoak trees dapple the ground with cool shade. In the ocean beyond, whales follow ancestral migration routes, dolphins frolic and sea birds wheel on the wind. Inland, rainforest clings to steep mountain passes, and the steep rock buttresses of Ben Lomond frown over the rich farmlands of the Fingal Valley.

Each place has its own surprises - sapphires panned from old mines near Branxholm and Derby; farm cheese at Pyengana; skiing and walks on Ben Lomond’s craggy heights; echoes of a mining heritage at Derby and the Blue Tier; a desert of golden sand dunes at St Helens; rough-cut local granite in the towering Eddystone Point lighthouse; sweeping views of forests and farmlands as the Mathinna road descends to Fingal Valley.

Noted surveyor, John Helder Wedge, first explored the area including Scamander in 1825. The present township is at the outlet of a large river, which proved a real barrier to early travellers, especially Wedge. Originally it was named Borthwick; then Hansons Creek; and finally the Scamander River, its official name today.

Douglas -Apsley National Park

Situated in the middle of the East Coast, Douglas-Apsley National Park is Tasmanias newest park. Spectacular river gorges, waterfalls, tranquil pools, large stands of dry eucalypt and pockets of rainforest combine to make a visit to the park a memorable experience.

Local Attractions

Fishing like you wouldnt believe. Amazing views of North and South Sisters and St Patricks Head.Tennis ,golf and pristine white private beach all close by.

Quaint, cosy & cute

Very cosy and cute. At night you could hear the waves from the beach and the frogs from the lagoon. Very recommended.

Great place for a relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in February 2017, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The bungalow itself is clean and well-equipped, and its decor has a quirky charm. Falmouth itself is an excellent spot to get away from the 'rat race', whilst still remaining close enough to the region's many tourist attractions. Highly recommended.

Gorgeous Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Woolly Butt Bungalow, gorgeous tranquil surroundings. Great location, a short drive to some of the best beaches in Tassie.

Our dogs loved it too.

Will definitely return.
