If you want the peace and beauty of the Australian bush, very well appointed accommodation, genial and generous hosts and a well researched connection to the fascinating heritage of the Chinese tin miners of North East Tasmania then Tin Dragon Trail Cottages is the place for you.
My partner and I stayed in Chin Tock Cottage for two nights at the end of April and found it the most relaxing and enjoyable experience. Christine and Graham told great stories about the history of the original Chinese mining leases on their land as they introduced us to the simple but fully appointed cottage.
Fresh farm eggs complemented the ample breakfast supplies and a wallow in the outdoor spa followed by a glass or two of port provided a mellow end to a day walking the well marked bush tracks.
We loved it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We offer romance, seclusion and privacy in fully self-contained two-bedroom and studio spa-cottages each with river views - situated on a 36 acre bush alpaca farm. Each cottage has a private outdoor dining area with bar-be-que and the studio cottages have an outdoor heated spa. Principles of ecological sustainability are combined with the comforts of a luxurious retreat. Your only disturbance might be from the occasional inquisitive pademelon or soaring eagle. This stretch of the Ringarooma River is favored by fly fishermen. Chinese heritage is celebrated with an interpretation centre, landscape art and walking tracks through historic mining and water races. ... more less
