Tasmanian Heritage Honeymoon

As I’ve recently come back from yet another lovely trip to Tasmania, I thought why not check out some of the stunning luxury accommodation the state has to offer. On researching, I stumbled upon the gorgeous and bespoke Red Feather Inn. This inn is located in Hadspen, approximately 18 mins from Launceston, Australia’s third oldest city and 14 mins from Launceston airport.

This exquisite heritage listed sandstone inn is absolutely breathtaking. Built with convict labour in 1842, it is full of old world charm. Think French provincial and Georgian dancing but with today’s modern-day luxuries.

You have the choice of either a suite or room, 7 in total. All of which are appointed with a gas log fire and state of the art bathroom. Each room overlooks the stunning French inspired garden.

Not only do they offer luxury accommodation but also a unique dining experience. Serving local Tasmanian produce and an abundantly stocked cellar with local and mainland wines.

If you enjoy cooking or would like to improve your cooking skills, Red Feather Inn also offers a cooking and lifestyle school. Ensure your stay coincides with one of the cooking school dates, these can be viewed on Red Feather Inn’s website.

The local area offers guest plenty to see and do. There are many historic buildings and gardens to meander through, cute markets to browse, world-class restaurants for the palate, snow fights/skiing at Ben Lomond (season permitting), ziplining through the tree tops at Hollybank or maybe a trout fishing adventure would be more up your alley, there is bound to be something you’ll both enjoy.

While all times of the year are stunning in Tasmania, my favourite time to visit is Autumn. The colours of the gardens and surrounding country are just magical and the temperature is perfect for a nice red by the cosy fire.


Red Feather Inn isn’t just a whimsical honeymoon destination and cooking and lifestyle school but they can also hold small to medium weddings.
