Second time at this property for our family, great location and facilities. Property is maintained to a very high standard. The hosts are very helpful if needed (thanks Loretta). Leave your iPads at home there is more than enough to keep everyone occupied both at and near the property.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave. 4 of us had a wonderful time spread out in the house - made use of the BBQ, fire pit, walked the beach and generally had a great time. Home away from home. Loretta was extremely helpful and patient with all my questions prior to our arrival. Definitely will recommend the property. Fab location !

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our son, his wife and two small children recently stayed at Retreat 101 for three nights. Our booking was very last minute and Loretta could not have been more helpful. This property was perfect, a great location, 100 metres to the beach, very quiet, great deck to sit and enjoy the view, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and well equipped. Living areas were huge, one downstairs and one upstairs. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Other Activities:

Freycinet National Park

There is so much to fit in to such a short space of time.

It's roughly 1hour 47min drive to Swansea from Hobart, the same distance from Launceston to Swansea, so it makes a great base.

From Hobart depending on your time frame, there is a wildlife park on your way situated at Richmond called Zoodoo (620 tea tree rd Richmond). Best attractions are monkeys, white African lion, Bengal tiger and you can even pre book a tour and hand feed them.

From Launceston you will pass through Campbell town circa 1821 population roughly 772. Top sights to see while travelling through are the The Red Bridge built by convicts & the Abel Tasman Memorial

Coming into Swansea from Hobart way, one of the most beautiful and scenic restaurants is Piermont estate ph (62578131) just ring in advance for opening times and availability.

Next is Kate's berry farm on your left (no booking needed) great home grown berries and pancakes and home made ice cream.

Spiky bridge is a great heritage attraction also on the left coming into Swansea from Hobart.

A short walk to do in Swansea is Waterloo point right near the golf coarse from September to march it is home to nesting shearwaters which migrate from the northern hemisphere each year.

In Swansea there are 2 small supermarkets, a chemist, visitor information center, post office/ news agency, ATM inside corner store, community bank (Bendigo) online access center at the school/library, May Shaw health center/medical center and the Bark Mill tavern, with bakery, bottle-shop and restaurant, it has great wood fire pizzas eat in or take away ph 036257 8094.

From Retreat 101 It is a 5 minute drive into Swansea and a pleasant 20 min walk along the beach. It is best to time your walk along the beach with the out going tide as there is an inlet that connects Nine mile beach and Swansea just to make sure you make it across, or you may get we feet.

Coles bay freycinet is approx 57mins (58km) from Swansea and the wineglass bay walk is a must. For the less energetic, a pleasant walk up to the light house will give you the most spectacular view or even make sure you do both.

Bicheno is a 35min (43.1km) drive from Swansea and every second weekend have a market.

Just a reminder that Tasmania has strict quarantine regulations and does not allow fruit and vegetables and some fish/meats into the state. For a complete list please go to the travelers guide to Tasmanian bio security.

Hope this helps with your decision making on your holiday or adds to the coin tossing as to what to do first.

We Look forward to you staying.
