DOLPHIN LOOKOUT COTTAGE Overlooking Binalong Bay

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

SPECIAL - Book 5 nights, and only pay for 4. Offer applies for stays during October and November only.

Dolphin Lookout has prime position perched above the village of Binalong Bay, with sweeping views along the famous Bay of Fires coast to Eddystone lighthouse. Surrounded by native bushes and birds, the view from all angles is simply stunning. All comforts are provided, from CD/iPod/MP3 stereo, DVD, microwave, quality coffee machine, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful hand-crafted oak dining table, designer chairs, and quality commercially laundered linen. With three bedrooms, you can fit up to three couples comfortably, or alternatively, enjoy a cozy, luxury stay for one couple. You could sit here all day admiring the lookout and watching for dolphins, or take off for many walks and adventures in the local area. FREE HI SPEED WIFI NOW AVAILABLE.

We have made some recent renovations to make Dolphin Lookout even better. The master bedroom now has its own tiled ensuite bathroom. There has been a large modern main bathroom built, so the property now boasts two bathrooms. Not only that but all three bedrooms have been recarpeted, and two are fitted with brand new beds, and bedside tables. The third bedroom has been enlarged.


Best of all - we have enlarged the deck - with comfortable outside quality furniture for your enjoyment. From the deck you have wonderful panoramic views right from Grants Lagoon, Binalong Bay Beach, as well as the whole of the Bay of Fires - right up to Eddystone lighthouse. With native plants growing right up to the deck, the birdlife is amazing. And it is all very private and exclusive to you.


Dolphin cottage sits just above the white sand beaches and red rocks of Binalong Bay. Combining a sense of remoteness with access to nearby amenities in St Helens, with its supermarkets, charming bric a brac and antique shops, and the best fresh fish on the East coast. Further afield are Pyangana cheese factory next to the famous Pub in the Paddock, impressive waterfalls in lush rainforests, the historical tin mining site with world class mountain bike trails, the Eddystone Point lighthouse, the spectacular 'Gardens' - rocky outcrops of the Bay of Fires - and a myriad of beaches, inlets and lagoons to explore.

You can even walk down to the nearby "Gulch" and take a boat ride with Bay of Fires Eco Tours, which will have you looking at dolphins, whales in season, and seals, as well as the famous isolated Bay of Fires - best seen in its entirety from the water. Or walk to Lichen Restaurant, less than 50 meters down the hill and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner - or even takeaway pizza or fish and chips - to enjoy back on the deck

Just Awsome

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best place we have ever stayed in. The views from the balcony were breathtaking, just magic, loved it, never wanted to leave.

The place itself was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. Jan was very helpful with directions and tips on what to expect with regards mobile coverage on the east coast. All in all we had a magic stay.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your time at Dolphin Lookout. The new deck is certainly proving popular, such a relaxing spot. Mobile coverage is really just Telstra, but Optus can be picked up about 5 minutes away. However with free hi speed WIFI at the house you don't have to worry!

Fabulous family holiday experience

  • 5 of 5

Extremely happy with our stay at Dolphin lookout. Everything was great couldn't make one complaint. The kitchen is well equipped for people like us who cook all of their own food making life easy. Hadn't been on a family break for some time and we definently weren't disappointed. Can't wait to be back again.

Owner's Response: Great to hear the family enjoyed their stay. It is good when you have full cooking facilities, even a brand new WeberQ on the deck! See you next time

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't be happier with our stay! We arrived to easy access, warm house and essential supplies. We were incredibly lucky to have a beautiful day and it just made our stay so much more enjoyable! Location is so conviently close to the beach and boat tours (which we did) and it was all hassle free. The pictures are excatly as posted and it was excellent coming to excatly what we paid for. Well worth the $$$. The nlg thing I would love to see is a gas heater for the cool nights. Thankyou for having us and I would love to come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review Alice. I'm glad the house was nice and warm for your arrival - we always try and put the heater on if guests are checking in on cold evenings. As the house has reverse cycle air conditioning or as Tasmanian's call it, a large heat pump, we believe there is adequate heating in the Cottage. Look forward to meeting you on your return visit!

The best view ever.

The best position in a beautiful part of North East Tasmania, and a comfortable cottage to see it from. What more could you ask for? Dolphin Lookout is great.

Owner's Response: Dolphin Lookout does have an amazing view. And with the new renovations happening, the opening doors out onto a huge new deck - what a place to enjoy it from!
