  • Award-winning Blue Penguin Wines
  • Cradle Coast Farmers’ Market at Ulverstone on Sunday mornings
  • Mount Gnomon Farm which raises rare breed pigs & other livestock ethically
  • Extensive walking trails with spectacular views from mountains to the sea
  • Within half an hour’s drive are the major towns of Ulverstone, Burnie and Devonport, Wings Wildlife Park, Leven Canyon Reserve, Gunns Plains Caves, and many more attractions – see http://www.centralcoast.tas.gov.au/page.aspx?u=598

Further afield but still within an hour or two’s drive are Cradle Mountain, Stanley and the Circular Head area, the Arthur River, the Tarkine, the Tamar Valley and Launceston, the Western and Central Tiers, and flights to King Island. Some participants may wish to take a longer break and explore more of our beautiful island state.
