My place is between Hobart and Port Arthur. You’ll love my place because on sunny days the wrap-around deck offers a perfect spot for relaxing at any time of the day, or enjoy a barbecue with stunning views over Frederick Henry Bay to Mount Wellington and across Norfolk Bay towards Port Arthur. When summer’s over and it’s chilly, there’s a cosy wood heater in the spacious open plan living area where you can while away the hours in comfort.
Things to do.
Enjoy a short stroll to the beach and corner store with takeaway food and a 3 min drive to the boat ramp. Within walking distance is the RSL club where you can relax for a cold drink and on Friday, Saturday nights and Sunday lunch have a counter meal.
The house is aprox 45 mins from Hobart CBD and 25 mins from the airport. Only a short distance drive to the historic town of Richmond, wineries, restaurants and the Port Arthur historic site.
The fishing town of Dunnalley (10 mins via the back road) has a 9 hole golf course, a beautiful pub on the water front for great meals and a fresh fish market with oysters straight from the farm or you can arrange for a fishing trip.
Don't miss the Tasman Arch, Blowhole, Devils Kitchen, Remarkable Cave, Tessellated pavement and the Tasmanian Devil park. What about an eco-cruise or a wilderness and wildlife tour. For the adventurous there's plenty of rock climbing spots.
After all that you might just want to relax at home and watch the rosellas at the bird feeder in the back yard. Keep your eyes peeled for the passing dolphins sited from the deck. You may even get to see the echidna if he/she visits during your stay.

Brett and I live in Townsville Queensland and have a very comfortable shack (as the Tasmanians call it) at Primrose Sands. We have lots of family living in the Hobart area and go to visit once a year. We fell in love with Primrose due to its laid back, relaxing ambience and never want to leave when we go down. When we retire we plan to spend the summers at the Shack.
