Moon River Retreat is a 45 minute drive south of Hobart and a 7 minute drive to the small township of Cygnet, home of the popular TV Series 'The Gourmet Farmer'. Ideally suited for one or two couples travelling together, with privacy assured. We are self-catering but do provide Continental Breakfast Provisions. We also provide FREE Wi-Fi.

Set on 3 acres of land with stunning views you can sit by the large floor to ceiling windows and watch the yachts sail by or in winter snuggle up by the wood fire and gaze at the snow-capped Hartz Mountains. Enjoy a glass of local wine on your private verandah and be amazed by the myriad of stars on a clear night. Collect your own fresh oysters from the bay nearby, which you can then prepare in your large fully equipped kitchen. Or just simply relax and read a book or magazine from the library.

Moon River Retreat enjoys a very high level of repeat business.

We can't guarantee the weather but we can guarantee our hospitality!

Buy your own fresh produce on 'The Gourmet Trail' or visit local cafes, restaurants & wineries.

"Just perfect, totally fault free."

This is a very special house, it's construction by the owner is a work of art and the house is presented in a perfect manner. I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and they do not reach the standard of this lovely cottage. I had to tear myself away.
