We fell in love with the lush green Ringarooma valley and its clear-flowing river and in 2001 purchased an amazing 36 Ac farm nestled in a bend of the river. You will love this place too! We have taken ten years to build the five brick and stone cottages which now sit looking out over the Ringarooma River. The former degraded cow paddock has been transformed to give each cottage its own private native garden with outdoor bar-be-que setting.

All cottages are self-contained. Our two-bedroom cottages suit couples travelling together, or small families, while our studio cottages with outdoor heated spa are perfect for a short romantic getaway. Our Settler’s Hut is great for small groups—specifically set up with mountain bikersand bush walkers in mind.

We provide a complimentary breakfast hamper. A packed picnic basket can be ordered and an appointment with an in-house massage therapist can be made, too.

We are close to the East Coast and northern beaches and sensational golf courses at Ringarooma. Moorina, Scottsdale, Bridport and Barnbougle.If fresh Tassie foods are your passion, you’ll be pleased that Tin Dragon Trail Cottages is close to vineyards, award-winning cheese-makers, hops-fields (and micro-breweries) and farm-gate and road-side fresh produce stalls. Of course there is a local country market most weekends, too.

Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails

Derby in North East Tasmania is poised to become a world class mountain biking destination with an 80km network of single track MTB trails in and around the old tin mining town. By this Christmas there will be at least 50km of track completed. Tin Dragon Trail Cottages is your ideal location for a great mountain biking experience in North East Tasmania. In fact we have opened a budget-priced group accommodation for up to six on our property—The Settler’s Hut—just for small groups of cyclists and bushwalkers!

Eco-friendly Accommodation

Rain is harvested to supply clean chemical-free water and a micro-hydro powers the cottages. Waste water is recycled back onto the farm. You are welcome to collect eggs, pick vegetables and fruit from our organic garden and catch your own trout for the BBQ.
