Douglas River Accommodation

The Douglas River is part of a national park in Tasmania's East Coast. The area rests 149 km northeast of Hobart, near the township of Bicheno. Having only been declared a national park in 1989, the Souglas-Apsley area is still fairly new to tourism. The possibilities for fun from the home base of an East Coast accommodation are nearly endless. With the Apsley River and Denison Rivulet running nearby and a very mild climate, the entire area is great for a relaxing, fulfilling hike in nature.

Why Douglas River?

Douglas River holiday rentals are essentially the perfect combination of scenic natural beauty and a steady connection to the benefits of civilization. When you have a great place to stay, you don't have to worry about lugging around endless kilograms of camping gear; you can just head home after a spot of bird watching or a long day's stroll. If exploring a deep gorge sounds like a fun challenge, this entire area is built for you. Another great reason to visit the East Coast is for the bird watching.

What To See Here?

The entire area around Douglas River is the perfect site for a hike. Since you're already off the beaten path, you can explore an almost endless stretch of natural beauty where it feels like there isn't another person for a thousand kilometre. BirdLife International even declared this area as one of its Important Bird Areas because of the 11 species of bird that only live around here. You can see Pink Robins, Swift Parrots and Flame Robins, as well as numerous others.

Another interesting site are the red rocks that cast beautiful shadows and create a stunning contrast against the aquamarine skies. Covered in distinctive lichen that is perfectly adapted for the coast, this is a rare sight and yet another unusual feature that makes the area great to explore and relax in.

Top Local Attractions

There are heaps of local birds to check out if you have an eye for the sky. But if you're more inclined to take to the water, kayaking and surfing are equally fun ways to enjoy the surrounding area. There is a lot of great surfing at nearby Douglas Point, and from your East Coast accommodation you can make it there quickly if the urge strikes you. With the availability of fresh fish in the area near Bicheno, you can grab your rod and take to the shoreline for a relaxing afternoon. You can even head over to the Little Penguin colony on Diamond Island that is situated close by.

Why Stay In Rentals?

When you stay in a rental home, you can enjoy space, privacy and independence as if you lived here. Why would anybody stay in a small hotel room when you can spend the same amount of money to live in a larger, better furnished home? If you want to get away from it all, renting a home in the bushland near the Douglas River is a great option.

The views are amazing! Nightly walks to the beach to see the penguins is another highlight. We'll definitely be back!
