A combination of garden, indoor areas and our veranda allow for a range of functions and events. We have hosted weddings, business meetings, presentations, Christmas parties, dinners, high tea parties, hen’s night and more.
We have a range of spaces to suit your needs. Please give us a call or visit and we would be very happy to help and advice.
We are located 40 minutes from Hobart and 15 minutes from New Norfolk.
Our philosophy is to offer traditional country hospitality and excellent value.
At the back of Hawthorn Lodge is the Hop Pickers Tea Room. This original wooden building dates to 1869 and is very rustic in nature. A wedding party of around 30 can be seated comfortably and room to dance as well. The venue can be set up for more formal meetings or as a lecture style. And in a more decorative style for those wanting to celebrate with a High Tea.
The veranda is perfect for cocktails, teas and where smaller tables will work. The veranda is often used in conjunction with the Hop Pickers Tea room.
The gardens offer plenty of space for weddings, or for small displays or a product launch.
Inside the house, we are able to manage smaller groups in our tea rooms.
If you are looking for a business retreat for a small group where we provide accommodation as well this, we are very pleased to do. Our combination of bedrooms and meeting areas are ideal for a small business team meeting. We can as part of any business retreat provide transport and fun activities like kayaking on the Derwent River.
Very popular are High Teas for groups and offer excellent value.
