The hosts at Tin Dragon Trail Cottages have given a lot of thought to the needs of their guests. They provide a hearty breakfast hamper (which includes their own fresh eggs), and have stocked the self-contained kitchens with a wide range of staples. With so much gourmet food in the region, visitors can explore, purchase fresh produce and then whip...

Tin Dragon Trail Cottages are a great idea and the owners are executing it with passion and commitment. The location is gorgeous and the cottages are tidy and clean with lots of fabulous homey touches. The downside for us is that they weren't that kid friendly with poor indoor outdoor flow and a bit dark when it is cold. I...

Our explorations took us around the trail and we had a wonderful experience - some storm damage did make the path a little diffcult to follow and at one stage almost turned back - however we go there tripping over a couple of Blue Tongued Lizards across our path. The cottage was a 'wow' on arrival - so beautifully presented...

Stayed at Tin Dragon Trail Cottages for 2 nights 24th & 25th April. A fantastic place to stay, tucked away in a lovely part of Tasmania - a little piece of paradise. We stayed at Fon Hock Cottage - very well appointed. Even though it was a wee bit cool, we tried the outdoor spa and it didn't disappoint -...

We stayed at Tin Dragon Trail Cottages for 3 nights in February, and it was the best place by far we stayed in Tasmania. Everything was perfect, Christine and Graham have created a wonderful place, and nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed in Chintock Cottage, which had a fabulous outdoor spa, with wonderful views and the alpacas...

We had chosen to spend three nights (wish we had spent longer) at Tin Dragon Trail Cottages during our two week tour around Tasmania. Information about the accommodation we found through "Trip Advisor". As we live in the "concrete jungle" of Hong Kong, we were looking for something calm, relaxing, and which would bring us back to nature. We have...

It's hard to add to the previous comments. The cottage (studio style) was large, beautifully furnished and well-stocked. The setting is delightful. We got up at 07h00 and walked down by the river - saw my first platypus in the wild and watched for about 10 minutes as it cruised around. Feeding the alpacas is great family fun - the...

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
