Hepburn’s Woodcraft and Private Fishery is located at Nunamara in north-east Tasmania.
Hepburn’s Woodcraft features the work of owner Andrew Hepburn who creates timber products from Tasmanian specialty timbers. Andrew’s work has been featured at the Tasmanian Craft fair, and you can make a selection from the range of pieces onsite.
You can also visit the property’s private fishery to fly fish for rainbow trout. Enjoy an affordable half-day’s fly fishing here; rod hire and fly-fishing tuition are available and no license is required. The fishery has a bag limit of two fish per person and bookings are essential.
