Things to do:

The gardens at Wirreanda Estate Enjoy a relaxing evening in our pleasant gardens. The property is Wirreanda estate but don't be fooled by the name, there are no wine grapes or a winery here, but a great comfortable place to stay and wile away the time while relaxing in our tranquil and extensive garden and bush land. Wirreanda means the place of trees; we have an ongoing planting program in place so as we can live up to the name Wirreanda.

The chalet is set amidst both natural bush and parkland type gardens, which are available to guests for their relaxation and of course a Bar-B-Q. With seating and relatively private and spacious areas, visitors will have a measure of privacy in which to indulge in the selection of beverages which are available from the reception area, along with pre-packaged Bar-B-Q packs of meat and fish.

Camellias, Rhododendrons, and Azaleas grow well in Tasmania's cool climate and a garden displaying these beautiful flowering shrubs is being developed at this time.

The best time of the year to see these wonderful flowering shrubs is in the spring to early summer.

For the energetic person there is the climb up to the top of the property where you can view the surroundings. The early morning riser may also catch a glimpse of some of the native fauna that abounds the property.

The water features are well into development and give the visitor that beautiful and restful sound of trickling and falling water .

Local Attractions:

Touring near the Oyster Cove Chalet VISITING SOUTHERN TASMANIA When visiting southern Tasmania a must see, must do and of course must explore, is the magnificent D'ntrecasteaux Channel from Taroona through Kettering to township of Cygnet.

Bruny Island shelters this magnificent water-way and it is said, that it has to be equal and right up there as one of the best in the world for spectacular scenery, sailing and boating, with wonderful bays, hidden beaches,jetties and small villages along the way.

The Channel is such a great place to spend two or three relaxing days; exploring and browsing the art and craft shops and for the sports lover, there is fishing, swimming, diving, golfing, bowling, boating, sailing and canoeing,

Lets not forget the food lovers who will love the many premier eating places around this magnificent waterway. We have all this and much much more in and around this stunning, but sometimes forgotten stretch of water and part of Tasmania, which has great historical significance to the European history of Tasmania.

A stay of 2 or 3 days is a must if you want to take in the ambience and environment of this special place which extends from Taroona just out of Hobart, via the Sandy Bay Road, where one will find the historical shot tower, through villages like Margate, Snug and Kettering to wend your way eventually to Cygnet and thus to Huonville via some of the most spectacular and accessible seascapes in southern Tasmania.

The Channel Highway (B68) continues from the Shot Tower through to where you will see the historical fort and gun placements which have a commanding view of the entrance to the Derwent Estuary and of course the famous Iron Pot light.

Kingston has a beautiful 18 hole golf course and a multi purpose sports centre. Kingston is the areas largest commercial centre with shops like Big W, Cole's and Woolworth's.

For wonderful swimming beaches, a side visit to Kingston Beach and around to Blackman's Bay is a must and starts your journey looking over Storm Bay and down the Channel.

The Tinderbox marine reserve is a diving paradise, with a myriad of sea life and of course the graceful weedy see-sea horse.

Continuing from Tinderbox to Howden, we again join the B68 or Channel Highway, adjacent to another 18 hole golf course overlooking North West Bay. We pass "Inverawe Native Gardens,"an open Gardens and the Margate train and just a little further on is the Channel Lawn Bowls Club where every one is welcome. Margate is a thriving village and the Margate Train has craft shops, antique stores, and of course pancake and coffee.

The Brookfield Vineyard is another great place to pause for a glass of wine, lunch or coffee. There is also the local Hotel, Pear Ridge restaurant and other great places to wander around, but if a picnic in on the agenda, drive down to Dru Point Bicentennial Park for a Bar-B-Q under the trees.

Further south you come to the little town of Snug.Snug was devastated by the fires in 1967 with a great loss of life and property. It has a lovely beach for swimming and fishing off the rocks, along with a caravan park that is adjacent to the beach If you are fit enough and would like a bush walk, then a visit to the Snug falls or Pelverata falls is essential.

In between the towns of Snug and Margate there is great fishing off the Margate jetty, a very popular fishing spot for many of the locals, but you may have to ask directions from "Merediths Fruit and veg shop" just out of Margate.

After leaving Snug another side trip to Conningham is where you will come across a magnificent little beach with its cute boat sheds and safe beach for swimming. A stroll along the track or the beach and you will see the beautiful sand stone rocks formations. Drive back over Old Station Rd, and drop down into lovely Oyster Cove, a beautiful, sheltered Cove ideal for fishing, boating and of course Photography. This is a historical Aboriginal site and an education centre has been built at the head of the cove and was once the home of Traguni.

Travel left into Manuka Rd towards Kettering and you will get some fantastic views of the Channel and Bruny Island.

Kettering is "the Gateway to Bruny Island." It has a marina for yachts and is a working fishing port. The Ferry to Bruny Island departs from here but stop for a drink at the hotel and see the great wood carvings around the car park which were done by one of the locals, or enjoy a coffee at the Mermaid cafe at the ferry terminal. Sea Kayaking is also based here at Kettering and this is where you catch your boat for the exciting Bruny Island venture tour, a must to do when in Tasmania.

Carry on down the Channel and you will come to Trial Bay,another great place for a barbeque and a cuppa. Trial Bay has a boat ramp public Bar-B-Q and toilets. Continue further on and over the hill you will see more outstanding views looking straight down the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and over to Bruny island. Apple orchards abound on the way to quaint Woodbridge, where you can wine and dine, over looking Peppermint Bay in the stunning new Peppermint Bay hotel.

Finish you trip by calling into Cygnet and enjoy an afternoon tea at one of the many coffee shops or maybe a tipple at one of the 3 hotels.
