Trevallyn on Gorge - Launceston

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Spacious three-bedroom, two-bathroom Federation home in the leafy artists' precinct of Launceston. Trevallyn on Gorge boasts extensive views of the Tamar River. Minutes away from cafe culture and the wilderness trails of Cataract Gorge.


Trevallyn on Gorge, built in 1900, is a majestic property set high on the hill, commanding outstanding views over the Tamar River to the north and Launceston city and surrounding mountains to the south-east. It is about 1.5km to the heart of Launceston and less to Cataract Gorge, for all of those nature enthusiasts.

The space consists of three large bedrooms (2 queen beds, and 2 king single beds - all linen is supplied.) There are two bathrooms, one with a large spa bath (towels supplied). Each bedroom has plenty of storage space for guest use. There is also a fully-equipped laundry with both washing machine and dryer.

The spacious lounge area has a bay window that looks out onto the tiered front garden, which displays beautiful greenery and colour all year round. The lounge room boasts 12 foot ceilings, making it reminiscent of a time long ago when Ladies and Lords invited city folk into their parlours. A lovely place to sip on tea, read a book, listen to some great music.

The house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen and dining area, with magnificent views over the city and river. Note the quality Bosch kitchen appliances; a chef's dream (or so my husband says!) Guests also have access to the upstairs verandah and an outdoor entertaining space with gas barbeque. A great place to enjoy an afternoon apertivo with your friends and family.

The established gardens are something out of a 1900 Dickens or Bronte novel! Our caretaker (and artist-in-residence) tends the gardens weekly, ensuring that fruits trees do their job and the rose garden blooms in its full glory. Work will be undertaken soon to commence a community garden below where the guest parking is.


Guests have access to the full upstairs house; 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large lounge room, wraparound verandahs, kitchen and dining, laundry, outdoor entertaining area and all gardens (front and back). Guests will have access to a two-car parking space to the right of the house on the concrete landing pad (caretaker owns spot immediately in front of house, to the left of the guest car parking spots.)


We may not be on site to greet you but our caretaker lives in the apartment below. She will be more than happy to assist with any queries during your stay. We will also be contactable by phone, text and email at all times.


Trevallyn on Gorge was not built with universal access in mind but, depending on mobility challenges, guests may find it suitably accessible. From the carpark there is a slight decline to the front of the house, two steps down and then four steps up to the front verandah. The verandah and hallway can accommodate a wheelchair easily. Both bathrooms have showers for easier access as well. There is also a shower stool. There are no stairs within the house. Access to the outdoor entertaining area is down two stairs and up one stair. Access to the back garden area is by steps and uneven path; it is not suitable for wheelchair access.

Registered Canine Assistance Animals (eg, 'guide dog') are permitted to stay in the house provided this is necessary for the welfare of the owner/handler (per C'th DDA 1992/2005). There would no additional cleaning fee. Whilst not set up as a 'pet-friendly' property, the back yard is securely fenced and gated to contain a well-trained dog. Guests are asked to appropriately dispose of all animal waste from the yard; leaving animal waste in the yard may result in loss of security bond. Please call us ahead of your visit if you plan to bring a Registered Canine Assistance Animal. Pet animals are not permitted on the property.


Trevallyn is the precinct for local creators - artists, wood turners, photographers. The views have inspired many landscape artworks over the last century.

We are just a short walk downhill to Kings Bridge which leads you to the start of the boardwalk to Cataract Gorge. We are only about 1.5km from town - a good walk downhill but a bus or taxi back up unless you're fit (or want to get that way)!

6 doors up you will find the Trevallyn shops (see photos for more details). At Trevallyn Shopfront (also online), you will find quirky treasures and trinkets for discerning home owners and ladies with fashion sense and style. The deli and grocer offer wonderful local food and wine, and you can find good coffee and great breakfast and lunch options at the cafe. The shops also include a gourmet bakery, a pharmacy, post office, and a hairdresser. Something for everyone!


Metro buses travel to the city of Launceston in less than 8 minutes. The Metro Bus stop is less than a minute walk just down the hill. Tickets can be purchased from various outlets or you can buy a Green Card and top it up online or at the nearest Metro Bus outlet. We'll send more details in our supplementary guest info pack, once a booking is confirmed through Stayz

Great holiday house

  • 4 of 5

So close to everything, a great house to stay with children as it has two seperate living areas. Lovely period home, modern where it needs to be and yes, the kitchen is great. The views from the dining area made for a great start to the day. Communication with the owner was excellent. Thank you.

Yesterday revived

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after a fabulous four night stay at Launceston. From the moment we layed eyes on this house we were captivated and upon entering the front door, well, wow, it has to be seen to be believed. Everything was pristine and clean and welcoming, even a little noticeboard welcoming us to the house. The house is perfectly set up for the most relaxing of stays, and the views were magnificent. Next time we visit Launceston we know exactly where we are staying, thankyou very much Phillip and Anne for your hospitality.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to have stayed here and loved the house. It is old and loaded with all the charm and character of its era. Yet bathrooms and kitchen are modern and extremely well equipped. There is nothing left wanting in this home. It has it all from the vast collection of CD's, DVD's, plush bedding, reading material to a kitchen loaded with every mod con you could possibly need. Add a wonderful garden with river and city views with a perfect deck to enjoy it all. I hope we will be lucky enough to stay here again one day.
