1. Blackfish Cottage (from USD 150)

This Airbnb vacation rental is minutes away from some of the scenic spots and attractions such as the Great Lake, Liffey Falls, and Brumbys Creek. Set in the midst of lush greenery and along the harboring banks of a rivulet of Palmers, Blackfish Cottage is part of a farmhouse in Cressy, Tasmania. It is about 40 minutes away from the pristine lakes on the Central Plateau and serves as an excellent base for trout fishing.

Guests can drift off to a peaceful slumber on the cozy beds after an eventful day of exploration. A platter of seasonal fruit, herbs, trout, and chicken eggs can be savored the next day from the orchard.

The fireplace lets you stay toasty and snug on chilly evenings when you can curl up with coffee by the comforting embers. A well-appointed kitchen also awaits should you want to fix meals when hunger strikes.

Ben Andrews

Hello, You found me. First of all i am a father of three healthy adventurous boys and a happy wife. The love and passion for adventuring was installed in me by my patients. They gave me a diverse experience all over the world, from extensive bushwalking adventures, cultural immersion, education and relationships . This has taken me to many explorations amongst the tourism industry, outdoor education, instruction and awareness for cultural needs, international and local professionalism and being a good listener. Having worked for big business here in Tasmania and around the world, i am now very privileged to share and recognise the need for small private experiences within this industry i love, tourism. The guests and i can achieve great depth of story and experience, leaving with exception experiences, memories and many times friendships. I believe in constant lifelong learning within my industry space and stay relevant to our profession, also supporting the community which i live. This community is a small town outside of Hobart, Tasmania. Which allows for a diverse, healthy involvement in outdoor adventures with family, friends and visiting guests. Over the years i have developed a love for History, Flora and fauna, photography and local community. Building relationships with providers and producers.. This has allowed me to share our unique space, community and Tasmania, delivering great balance to a day or multi day experience with exception networks in industry.
