After enjoying the sites of Hobart, one of Australia’s hottest visitor destinations, why not drive an hour or so due east for a couple of days’ rest at Brockley? Brockley Estate, our historic country property, famous for its unspoiled Colonial atmosphere and delicious food and wine, is perfectly placed for the white sand beaches of the East Coast and for an unforgettable day on Maria Island.
Set in the midst of a 10,000 acre Merino wool property, only an hour`s drive away on Tasmania`s lovely East Coast, Brockley homestead dates from 1841 and is furnished, like Corinda, with priceless original antiques. Famous for fine dining and magnificent local wines, the property is perfectly located for Maria Island, home to the unique Tasmanian Devil.
Brockley Cottages, equally comfortable, are only a few steps away from the historic 1841 homestead. The Old Dairy has a sitting room with kitchenette and wood-burning stove, a cosy double bedroom and shower room. The Shearers’ Cottage is bigger, with two bedrooms, a shower room and a large front room for sitting, eating and cooking, also with a cosy wood-burner.
Guests in Brockley Cottages are welcome to share evening meals with house guests when available and the house is not exclusively booked. Prior bookings are essential.
