Myself, My Husband and my elderly mother in law stayed at Carinya for two nights in Feb/Mar 2017. First of all as we approached the property we saw the most AMAZING View of Mt Roland. I thought it was Cradle Mountain and in my humble opinion the view is actually better than Cradle Mountain. Then we met our hosts Gary...

We went in mid-January 2017 and stayed for 2 nights. Thanks Garry gave us a fresh baked bread with self-produced jam and butter as it was warm and tasty. We have a lot of discussion with Garry regarding the set up of the farm and the room decoration. The room is perfect for a couple. Very nice view and clean...

We love everything in Carinya farm including the friendly and amiable hospitality, welcoming by a lot of animals (a cute cat, a smart dog, some funny roosters and lovely sheeps). We defintely love the taste of homemade bread, jam and farm produced eggs. It's the best place in Tasmania for vacation, relaxation and getting away from the hustle! We'll be...

Stayed only for a couple of nights but its one of the best places to stay in Tasmania if you're visiting Cradle Mountain. The hosts were such lovely people and who couldn't fall in love their farm animals, esp Minty the lamb. Would love to go back there again one day :)

We were a family of 3 adults traveling to Tassie from Singapore. It was out first trip to Tassie. We work so we couldn't stay as long as we wanted. So it was only 2 nights here for us because we wanted to see as much as we could. Carinya Farm is really close to Sheffield so it was easy...

Our stay at Carinya was accidental, but a very happy accident. We came on spec and they welcomed us in. Chris & Garry have a lovely farm with a beautiful outlook over Mt Roland, and have built 2 very comfortable units within an old farm building. The rustic setting, hand made decorations plus their warm hospitality makes this a 5...
