Le logement
Cataract Gorge Retreat is the closest house to the Cataract Gorge Reserve. The front door is actually closer than some of the carparks for the reserve! We think it is the best location in Launceston and it is a great spot for people-watching during the day and wildlife watching at night.

This newly renovated apartment has one spacious bedroom, a fully appointed kitchen, a bathroom and european laundry. This apartment is part of a larger house. It has a separate and private entrance, patio, and garden around the side. You will have your own dedicated parking space just outside the front door. Upstairs there is a separate three-bedroom Airbnb (which also is available to book for groups on a separate listing).

For sleeping you will enjoy a king-sized bed. We provide luxury linen/bedding and towels to make your stay lavish and comfortable. A port-a-cot is available (please let us know if you require this set up).

The stylish kitchen is brand new and features quality appliances as well as an espresso machine with inbuilt conical grinder. We provide ethically sourced and locally roasted coffee beans as well as basic tea and coffee supplies, salt and pepper. The kitchen also features a dishwasher, microwave oven, rice cooker, blender and sandwich press. If you can’t be bothered cooking or barista-ing at home then the Basin Café is a stone’s throw away or The Gorge Restaurant is a short stroll through the reserve. We also provide a guest information guide with some tips on where to dine and how to get there.

The apartment features NBN Wi-Fi and USB power points are available so you can charge devices easily. You can enjoy lounging on the leather couch which is perfect for relaxing, watching Netflix on the large smart TV, or simply reading a book. You will also find board games and books about the local area to enjoy.

The North-facing patio catches the sun and features outdoor seating with views of the reserve bushland and carpark. This is a great place to people-watch during the day as there is a constant stream of cars and people accessing the reserve. At night the street front is very quiet and the patio is a great place to watch the wildlife. The peacocks nest next door in the bush as well as native wallabies, paddy melons, spotted quolls and tawny frogmouths. The brush-tailed possums will visit the front yard every night scavenging for food (please don’t feed them as human food is harmful to the marsupial animals).

There is a reverse cycle air conditioner (known in Tassie as a “heat pump”) on the property that keep it cool in summer and cosy warm in winter. All you have to do is push a button and decide how warm or cool you would like the space to be.

The bathroom is newly renovated and kept sparkling clean. Quality soap, shampoo and conditioner are supplied. The European laundry features a new front load washing machine and clothes dryer. Washing powder is supplied. Guests also have access to ironing equipment and some basic cleaning amenities should you require.

For your security and safety, the house is fitted with external security cameras. These record arrivals and departures to the driveway as well as the boundary with the reserve. They do not view or record the patio and there is no internal surveillance.

The other space downstairs at this house is a large garage which is not available to guests. The space above this apartment is the kitchen and living area of the three-bedroom Airbnb. The floors are structural concrete and sound from your apartment generally does not carry up. Some sounds from upstairs can be heard below (such as chairs being tucked in) but sounds such as TV and conversation are generally not audible.

The side garden is a work in progress and we are planning on planting it out with bird attracting native plants. We are very excited to watch this space grow and attract even more of the fantastic Tasmanian bird life to this area.

Où se situe le logement

West Launceston, Tasmanie, Australie

Cataract Gorge Retreat is the closest house to the Cataract Gorge Reserve, with some amazing short walks and wildlife literally at your doorstep. The reserve features a spectacular outdoor art-deco pool, which is free and maintained for swimming during the warmer months of the year.
Wallabies and possums frequent the private garden and can be seen at night. Native birds including the Superb Fairy Wren and Scarlett Robin frequent the garden and peacocks live in the reserve on the other side of the fence.

The area is busy with car and pedestrian traffic during the day and generally very quiet at night.

There are lots of cafes and restaurants within walking distance or a short drive/Uber/taxi away.

I live and work in Launceston and enjoy spending time with my young family. I love the native bush land nearby and the bird life that comes to visit our garden.
