YOUR OWN HIGHLANDS RETREAT
This charming weatherboard cottage set in the old hydro village at Bronte Park is the perfect retreat. Bronte Park, the geographical centre of Tasmania was first established in the late 1940's to support the Hydro-electric scheme in Tasmania's Central Highlands and became home to hundreds of European immigrants who settled here to work on the "hydro". The cottages became a popular tourist destination once the workers moved on as the region became known for some of the world's best fly fishing and now a piece of Tasmanian history is available for you to call your own.

One of around 20 cottages remaining, Cottage 4 has been updated with a new kitchen and bathroom, double glazed windows and new flooring throughout.
The three bedrooms are generous in size, the current owners have their 3rd bedroom set up as a home office as well as additional visitor accommodation. The cottage is heated with a Saxon wood heater. The large covered front deck offers the perfect spot for summer BBQ's, as well as for lounging and watching the local wildlife at play. You will find wallabies, possums, echidnas and wombats all playing in their natural environment. The yard is fully fenced and a single lock up garage includes great storage.

Offered fully furnished and ready to move in, this home is connected to mains power, water and sewerage and has satellite phone and internet. The small private village of Bronte Park has hosted the World Fly-fishing Championships and offers wild trout fishing unrivalled in Australia. The local shop, just a stone's throw away, is extensively stocked with everything you need including fishing gear.
