Platypus Riverside Cottage

1658 Gordon River Road Westerway Australia


The Platypus Riverside Cottage offers self-contained accommodation right on the river at Westerway, a 55-minute drive from Hobart and just a five-minute drive from Russell Falls and Mt. Field National Park. The Platypus Riverside Cottage is a self-contained fully equipped two bedroom cottage on the Tyenna river. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and overlooks the river just metres away. There is a second bedroom with two single beds. Enjoy alfresco dining on the back deck listening to the babbling Tyenna River where you may spot one of the resident platypus. Fish one of the best trout rivers in Tasmania, or just enjoy the unique experience of being 'by the river'. Whether you've been wine tasting, browsing the local craft galleries, enjoying the eateries, walking the beautiful forests and mountain tracks of nearby Mt Field National Park, viewing the wild scenery of the South West World Heritage Area and Lake Pedder, gazing at the world's tallest hardwood trees in the Styx Valley, watching the local wildlife and waterfalls, the Platypus Playground offers a warm and welcome haven. All linen and cooking facilities are provided. Next door is The Possum Shed offering great breakfasts and lunches.
