We can arrange to provide you with fresh food from the farm to compliment your meals during your stay. Stay for a few days to make the most of the experience.

Eagle Park is well located for all the attractions in the North East and Tamar Valley and only 26 kilometres from the city of Launceston. We are a few minutes from the friendly and well-serviced village of Lilydale where you will discover artists, crafts and local history.

Adventure on the farm too - our facebook page 'cherry top accommodation' has details of activities we can facilitate on the farm.

Within a half hour drive you can visit some of the best cool-climate wineries in Tasmania and Bridestowe Lavender Farm. Enjoy a gentle bushwalk at Lilydale Falls or tackle the more challenging Mount Arthur. And for those seeking action adventure experience the exhilaration of the Hollybank Treetops Adventure, Trees Adventure Underwood! and the Mountain Bike park.

Your hosts John and Lesley look forward to meeting you and helping you make the most of your stay. Group tours can be arranged for a small fee Farmtastic!

If you choose to bring your pet it is very important that you contact us for terms and conditions before you make your booking. There are additional charges for pets.

Sorry - messed up the review rating - I meant to say - Lesley and John are very welcoming hosts. Our two children loved helping to collect fresh veges from the garden and eggs from the chooks, and we all enjoyed the honey from the bees. The views across the valley are picture postcard. Eagle Park is great if you like the idea of an organic lifestyle, but dont want to rough it.
