About the Property
The property was originally prime pasture, as part of a bigger property, which has been developed over the past 9 years with the design of the paddocks, building various sheds, the farm-stay house and the main Homestead. This dream home has been uniquely designed to blend with the landscape and capture the amazing views from each and every room. The decore of the homestead gives a sense of simplicity, luxury and relaxation.
Having spent the past 28 years in an office behind the scenes, managing a very busy business, Julie now enjoys the opportunity to manage Highland Getaway, meeting people face to face and sharing her passion for Highland Getaway, the Huon Valley and her amazing animals.
Julie’s childhood dream, was to have her own zoo and become a vet, so she’s on her way with the animals at Highland Getaway and the need to learn about animal behaviour and their needs. This city girl has flourished as a host and a farmer and is loving sharing her passion and new found knowledge.
Imagine a beautiful place, where the only sounds are birdsong, a distant river, wind sighs and your heart telling you to stay here forever.
Imagine staying in a luxurious suite on the flanks of the Huon River; within easy reach of Huonville with its amenities and shops but far enough away to have panoramic views of rolling countryside and perfect peace whilst enjoying your exclusive hot tub spa or private cinema, while easing your cares away.
Go on a fascinating farm tour to meet the docile Highland cattle, feed the alpacas and chickens whilst learning first-hand about Tassie’s rural life. Imagine a perfectly provided breakfast and the chance to BBQ your perfect steak under a star-filled sky.
We stayed at Highland Getaway, should have stayed longer, spoilt rotten by Julie and it really should be on your bucket list as a Tasmanian ‘must do’. But don’t just imagine. Experience one of the best stays of your life. We did.
