Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Tasmania / Bruny Island / Alonnah / Forestvale Design Centre
Thank you for checking us out. We are located on South Bruny Island Tasmania an hour total drive and a 15 minute ferry ride south of the city of Hobart.Arrange your visit to Forestvale Design Centre and discover more family-friendly attractions in Bruny Island using our Bruny Island online tour planner.
We are situated on 100 acres of beautiful covenanted forest and grazing land. The views are stunning and the fresh air is sweet and crisp. Our unpolluted skies provide fresh drinking water and its very soft to shower in. We have vegetable gardens and a blueberry and fruit tree orchard.
We have a 220m² gallery, a full wood working shop, naturally lit spaces for painting and a large shed for the boat building and wood working activities.
It’s really quiet here and only occasionally can you hear a far off vehicle. The forest can, however, roar as the southerly brisk wind blows in from the Southern Ocean all the way from Antarctica. The night sky is spectacular and free of light pollution and the space shuttle passes over frequently at night. A ‘night sky’ application on the phone is worthwhile.
Our property has an abundance of wildlife and is a bird watchers paradise. Endangered species such as the forty spotted pardalote, swift parrot and white goshawk are all present. Not to mention the flame robins, European goldfinches, new Holland honey eaters, skylarks, hawks and eagles and heaps more. We also have a resident white wallaby and deer are seen occasionally passing through.
Come see us and for a remote, unique experience.
