Poppies On The Beach and The Outrigger offer self-contained accommodation on Bruny Island, south of Hobart.
Poppies On The Beach and The Outrigger are absolute beachfront bush retreats for two, or a great place for gatherings of friends or family. Poppies On The Beach has one queen-size bed and two single beds, and The Outrigger has one double bed and two single beds.
The grounds include a very private safe sandy beach with a hammock. Enjoy swimming, beachcombing or collecting oysters (without getting your feet wet).
Gaze over the peaceful D’Entrecasteaux waters while feasting on seafood cooked on the barbecue or relax on the veranda deck. Let all your cares waft away as you listen to the abundant bird life and wander through a hectare of native landscaped garden. Swing in the huge hammock and contemplate the sunset. If it gets chilly, move inside to the glowing warmth of a wood heater.
Bruny Island has plenty to explore; South Bruny National Park, Cape Bruny Lighthouse the third oldest Commonwealth lighthouse in Australia, Bligh Maritime Museum, and nearby at The Neck, at dusk you can see fairy penguins come ashore from their day of fishing.
