In 1996, they named the property ‘Partridge Farm’ after the free range partridges and started holiday accommodation. First was The Bungalow which is bed and breakfast accommodation. The Bungalow overlooks deer and sheep paddocks and has good views of Franklin Sound and outer Islands. The Bungalow has a double bed and spa.
After a few months they built The Retreat. It is a self contained studio unit with a king size bed and also overlooks Franklin Sound and is close to the large eucalyptus forest. They have a large vegetable garden, many different varieties of fruit trees and an olive grove.
They also cater for house guests on request and food is sourced mainly from Partridge Farm, cooked by Lorraine with meals delivered to the houses. Partridge Farm has a liquor licence and in each house is an extensive wine and beer supply, featuring local wine from Unavale Vineyard & a large selection of tasmanian wine. There is an enclosed bbq area with a wonderful brick pizza/bread oven.
Partridge Farm has a Rav 4 available for hire, so you can see the island at your leisure.
Partridge Farm has been on Getaway with Geoff Watson, Discover Tasmania with “Fast Eddy”, YouTube on Famous Tasmania’s with Cam Tapp and Gourmet Farmer – “the long table” with Matthew Evans.
