Hawthorn Lodge has been welcoming guests since 1869. The tradition of hospitality started by the Shoobridge family the original owners continues with David and Marie who took over Hawthorn Lodge in December 2015.
As seasoned travellers we understand needs and our aim is to provide memorable experiences and excellent value accommodation.
Hawthorn Lodge is a heritage listed with original gardens and highly productive fruit trees and vegetables we use where we can for dining. And homemade jams for the Lazy Teas and Breakfast.
Bushy Park is a good location to base yourself for Southern Tasmania being 40 minutes from Hobart and very close to Mt Field one of the main Tasmania attractions. Day drives in all directions provide plenty of diversity and interest.
New Norfolk the main town in the Derwent Valley is 10 minutes.
For those without a car or bike we are able to meet and drop in Hobart or Hobart airport and transfer to Mt Field and other locations. We also offer a number of weekend and mid week packages where we include transport.
If looking for something more active consider joining Marie for one of her Running Weekends or have fun with your camera with David.
