We only stayed one night in a brand new cabin with 2 bedrooms, living, dining and kitchen space and good bathroom with washing machine in a very pleasant farm setting in a pretty valley about 20 mins away from Hobart airport. Everything was provided and a good continental breakfast basket was delivered at the time requested. It contained fresh bread,... More

We stayed in the new rooms, the facilities were great! Breakfast, with still warm bread, delivered in the morning was lovely. The animals were great, especially Nelson the alpaca. Animal feeding the morning was fun for the little one.

The four of us rented the Sugarloaf Apartment. Despite our late check-in, Tara was very kind to wait up for us. The farm tour was educational and exciting with the variety of farm animals available. We met Daisy (duck), Charlie (sheep), Flossie (horse), Mika & Nelson (alpacas) and more. Our favourite was Blackie (dog), who would sit at our door... More

It was night, we had eaten at the pub in Richmond before making our way out to Tara's and when we pulled in through the front gate in a state of slight confusion measuring up where to park, when out came Tara with a big grin and right arm waving us towards the visitor car parking.

We stayed for 2 nights, Tara is so friendly and we got a wonderful tour of the farm including getting to feed the animals. A lovely breakfast basket was waiting for us each morning including freshly baked bread. The accommodation was clean and spacious. Only 5 mins out of Richmond we really enjoyed our stay
