Opossum Bay is located on the South Arm Peninsula approximately 42 kilometres from Hobart by road. Opossum Bay is on the public transport route.

The South Arm Peninsula is well known for its spectacular beaches and good fishing grounds. The beautiful Opossum Bay beach offers safe swimming and fantastic surf beaches are only a five minute drive from Opossum Bay Retreat. The Opossum Bay boat ramp/jetty makes boating and fishing activities very accessible.

Just four kilometres away is another seaside town, South Arm, which has a RSL and Community Club offering meals, Sunday luncheons and a bottle shop. Behind the Club is the Iron Pot Nine Hole Golf Course with a challenging water hazard but a welcoming nineteenth hole.

Well presented holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Walked into the house and immediately felt comfortable. The main room is light with modern decor and has fantastic views across the Derwent, even saw a cruise ship sail past. The house was very clean as we're all utensils, Jan the owner contacted us with a few tips and general info and really made us feel welcome. We would recommend this home to anyone that is looking for a nice quiet stay.
