Our hosts Julian and Chaxi took great care of us, providing delicious homemade food, local knowledge and conversation in the grand surrounds of the Buckley estate. Walking along the old convict road besid the river was easy, and worthwhile. The Sea Eagle lording it over the weir was the highlight.
We plan on going back and tasting the dinner menu.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Time spent at Brockley Estate is an experience entirely different from what you expect in conventional so-called ‘colonial’ accommodation.The 170-year-old sandstone and convict brick homestead blends seamlessly into its traditional Tasmanian landscape surroundings, with generous verandahs, ancient English trees and hawthorn hedges stretching down to the wide Prosser River.Inside, mellow antique furniture, textiles, pictures and ceramics exude an atmosphere of effortless elegance and good taste that would be almost impossible to replicate in a purely commercial context.With food and wine of a quality rarely encountered in a private house anywhere in Australia, this is genuine colonial country life as it really was and, one hopes, always will be if you know where to look.Now that you are indeed in the know, why not come and share it with us? ... more less
