This bright and cosy traditional Tasmanian coastal holiday house has magnificent views, as it is the highest house on the south side of the Arthur River.

In October 2013, the Cottage was substantially upgraded. It was redecorated throughout, all floor coverings replaced and some new light fittings installed. The bathroom was renovated and a dishwasher and reverse cycle air conditioner installed in the main living/dining/kitchen area.

The 2013 upgrade of the Cottage has greatly enhanced the amenities and appeal of the Cottage. The interior is now fresh and bright and, importantly, those dishes can now get washed by machine, not by you.

The northerly outlook from the Cottage gives not only a magnificent, elevated view, but also plenty of warm sun, to be enjoyed inside or on the large raised deck, looking out over the river, sea and surrounding wild Arthur- Pieman Conservation Area. This is truly a panorama. The cottage is set well back from the road, in its own garden. There is plenty of room for your boat if you want to bring it along.

The spacious main room, a recent addition, looks out over the view, from east through north and to west over the sea. This room, now heated and cooled by the reverse cycle air conditioner, has dining and living areas with a DVD player and TV which has an extensive choice of satellite-delivered channels. The fully equipped kitchen has ample storage, a gas stove with full size oven and a large fridge. This main room adjoins a second living area which has a slow -combustion wood stove, for which wood is supplied.

There are 2 main bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with 2 bunks and a single bed. Part of the second living area, which has a double sofa bed, can be curtained off to serve as a third sleeping area. The WC, laundry (with washing machine and dryer) and bathroom, are all separate. The well-heated renovated bathroom has a new shower/bath.

An enclosed entrance patio/sunroom has a transparent roof and is large enough for meals or sitting. It has a dining table, chairs and a gas barbecue.

Experience being sandwiched between the Tarkine Forest and the wild West Coast of Tasmania where Tasmanian devils and diverse wildlife still abound.

The Arthur River village is the only easily accessed Tasmanian West Coast settlement that is right on the shores of the Southern Ocean. It straddles the mouth of the wild and undammed Arthur River, which traverses the Tarkine Forest. Many Tasmanians who live in the northern part of Tasmania head to Arthur River for their relaxation.

The village is surrounded by the extensive Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area, which encompasses the Tarkine Forest and teems with wildlife. The animals treat the village as part of their home. Wombats have burrows in many places within the village and, along with wallabies, are seen frequently. Spotted quolls and Tasmanian devils live within or walk through the village and are most likely to be seen at night.

Apart from people living on the North and West Coasts of Tasmania, the Arthur River area is little known for its fishing. It is, in fact, a great destination for the fisherman, as there are trout in the river and good rock and beach fishing.

The coast just north of Arthur River is famed for its surf, so that each year there are major national surf and wave-sailing events.

The wild coast of sweeping beaches, rocky outcrops and coves on either side of the Arthur River mouth is easily reached on foot from the village. More distant parts of the coastline to both south and north can be accessed at multiple points by road.

Roads connect the village to the Tarkine Forest inland, which can also be visited by taking a boat for up to 15km up the river and much further in a canoe. Bring your own vessel which you can launch into the river from the boat ramp just down the road. No boat? Then hire a boat or canoe in the village from the Boat Hire. If you do not want to be your own skipper, you can catch an Arthur River Cruise on the George Robinson, which runs up the river virtually every day, apart from mid-winter. This characterful boat leaves just across the river from the Cottage. Book early.

There are many other attractions within a 100km radius, including pretty, historic Stanley and the huge dairy and wind farm at Woolnorth, right on the top left corner of Tasmania.

The main road that enters Arthur River from the north is well-engineered and sealed. The scenic Western Explorer road continues south from Arthur River to Corinna, from where it is easy to reach Strahan and all of Southern Tasmania, so that it is possible to do a loop around much of the Tasmanian coast. The Western Explorer that leads south from the Village has just been sealed for about 20km. The sections of dirt that remain further south are well-maintained and suitable for an ordinary 2 wheel drive car, driven carefully.


We have received positive feedback about the property from guests who stayed before the 2013 improvements:

"The cottage is in a delightful location, is very well appointed and comfortable. We were able to take our pets with us who also really enjoyed their stay in beautiful Arthur River." Jenny April 2012

"Spacious property just like a real shack well set up sunny and warm." Fiona January 2011.

The following comments were made after the renovation

"Thank you for a lovely stay. A beautiful location with magnificent beaches" Gixxx family Jan 2015.

"Delightful place, very comfortable. Thanks. Views are great" H&J October 2014.

"Amazing part of the world! A great adventure to add to our list of experiences! The wild of this place is alive! The sea eagles and wedge tail eagles. For the record, I am claiming first person to ride an electric skateboard to the Edge of the World" B & D May 2015.


It is important for you to know that if you come to stay at the Cottage, that the Arthur River village has only a small food shop which also prepares good take-away food. Fuel for vehicles or boats is not available for sale in the Arthur River Village..

There are larger general stores to the north of Arthur River at Marrawah (14 km) and near Redpa on the highway (17 km). Both of these stores have fuel bowsers.

The nearest supermarket and general shopping is 65 km to the northwest, at Smithton.
