Getting There:

As you approach the Burnie city area, from the Launceston direction on the Bass Highway, stay in the left hand lane, look for overhead signs, the one you want is the sign for Ridgley (Cradle Mt) (Strahan) on the B18, this is a LEFT hand turn. Follow the B18 towards Ridgley.

100 m before you get here you’ll see a road sign “CREST” on the left hand side of the road, you are close now, turn on your right indicator and start to slow down.

We are at the very crest of the slight rise ahead of the crest sign and there you’ll see a blue Tourism sign “Hide-away Cottage Retreat” pointing to our entry on the RH side. There is a slip lane on your left, so it is safe to pull into the centre to turn.

If you are using a GPS system please enter your destination as 500 Ridgley Highway Mooreville.
