Of all the six places we stayed on our Tasmanian holiday, this was the best. It originally seemed a long way from Hobart as a base, but the 40 minute drive is well worth it, plus you are only 10 minutes from the nearest supermarket at New Norfolk. Perched in the hills with fantastic views, Heimat Chalets was more like a resort, a destination in itself. The kids did not want to go out in the morning as there was so much to do. There is a great, safe playground that the kids had to themselves. There are lots of farm animals that the kids got to feed such as goats, alpacas, donkeys and calves as well as Sienna the cutest dog you will ever see. The chalets are well appointed, warm, clean and modern spread over two levels. There is a well equipped BBQ hut full of detail and character, good laundry facilities and we even found a dunny with stunning views ( which I had to explain to the kids what it was for). Thank you Linda and Frank for an excellent stay.
