We are a respectful, friendly couple who love nurturing the land, bringing up our daughters, valuing all of life's experiences and sharing its' bounty with others. We love laughing, watching a great sunset, eating good food & spending time in nature. We are advocates of simple living, regenerative land practices and chemical free growing. If home, you'll see us working the land and animals on our farmlet and if touring, we'll be sitting back enjoying the views. We show deep gratitude for the land and the habitat we are part of and hope to share it with others who will also enjoy the humbling experience it is to simply 'be'...
Why Owner chose Penguin
Penguin is in our opinion the most beautiful coastal town with the friendliest community in the North-West of Tasmania. The Penguin Hideaway is perfectly nestled between the ocean and the mountains with only a 10 minute drive to Ulverstone and a 15 minute drive to Burnie. We are a popular first & last night choice of accommodation for those traveling via The Spirit Of Tasmania, being a direct 30 minute drive from Devonport. We are also a popular, affordable accommodation for tourists wishing to spend a full day exploring Cradle Mountain. This is a 1hr 20min drive (80km away) from The Penguin Hideaway, we highly recommend the lovely drive to Cradle Mountain from Turners Beach/Forth B19.

Lovely and good value
Was clean and beautiful with lots of sweet little personal touches that showed thoughtful attention to the possible needs of guests. We also loved going for a stroll up the street and looking at all the animals. Would recommend to friends or come and stay again.
Great place, great people
Owners really helpful. Comfortable, (romantic even) cottage. Close to a delightful village. The rural views were particularly inclusive. We'd certainly stay again.
