The Trig on Mt Arthur – Lilydale
Dine on the deck on fine Tasmanian gourmet and organic produce. Enjoy amazing views across the rolling farms and bushland to the Tamar River and Bass Strait by day and spectacular sunsets and starry skies by night. Awake in the morning to the sounds of birds and watch the native wildlife grazing at your doorstep. Take a short bushwalk on the property or continue up Mountain Rd to follow the Mt Arthur track to the summit (5 hrs return). Curl up in front of the wood fire with a book, DVD or music. Perhaps indulge in a glass of local wine while bathing in the outdoor tub on the deck.
|The Trig at Lilydale just out of Launceston is a great location for experiencing local day trips and with the TT Line arriving and departing from Devonport (1½ hours away) also makes it perfect for your first and last night stay in Tasmania.
