I tried to put up a review on Maydena Country Cabins a few weeks ago but it seems to have gone into the ether. So, as we really enjoyed our stay there, I thought I would send in another review.
The cabin we stayed in is a small 2 bedroom self contained cabin on a beautiful alpaca farm with glorious views over the valley towards Mount Field National Park. There is a second cabin on the property. Our cabin was very nicely fitted out although there is little storage space for luggage because the rooms are small (but quite adequate).
Anthea, Derek and the Alpacas are very welcoming and know the area very well. They are informative and caring hosts. The bread and butter pudding on arrival was scrumptious!
There is so much beautiful country to see in the area, and it's only 1 1/4 hrs from Hobart! Nearby, there is the whole of Mount Field National Park with the iconic Russell Falls at the base and great bush walking including the famous Tarn Shelf at the top. Maydena is an ideal place to stay to see Lake Pedder. But the most startling and impressive sights are the giant 400 year old trees and old growth forest of the Styx and Florentine valleys which are within 20 km of Maydena. Many of the trees are between 80m and 90m high and they are the largest living flowering plants. Download the Wilderness society guide for the Styx at http://www.wilderness.org.au/campaigns/forests/styx_walking_guide which will tell you exactly where to go and what to see.
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
