cable station technician’s cottage

Stay and dine at the Cable Station, formerly a tele-communications centre c.1936 connecting Tasmania to the rest of the world with the first ‘submarine cable’ telephone link. 

The Technician’s cottage has been superbly renovated to provide comfortable and stylish fully self-contained accommodation with a touch of history.  Luxurious bedrooms, each with their own private en-suite, a separate lounge with log fire, and an outdoor BBQ entertaining area make this cottage suitable for up to 4 couples travelling together as a group or the perfect ‘romantic getaway’ for 2 in the Post Master General Suite with it’s free-standing spa bath.

A complimentary ‘maxi-bar’ is included in your room rate and is the perfect solution for guests wishing to sample all that the region has to offer the ‘gourmet traveller’. Hosts, Charlotte & Don aim to ‘over-deliver’ on anyone’s expectation with the ‘all-inclusive’ locally sourced product offering. On arrival, travellers are welcomed with a fully stocked fridge from the Cradle Coast ‘tasting trail’ including Sparkling from Lake Barrington; local wines and beer; award winning Tasmanian 10 year old whisky and specialty vodka. A showcase for breakfast, light snacks and dinner include local cheeses, & farmhouse butter; sourdough bread (gluten free option available too); free range eggs; locally produced bacon and traditional English sausages; fresh salad ingredients, chocolate truffles; hot smoked baby

salmon; fresh from the dairy a selection of full cream milk and goats milk yoghurt. And if that doesn’t suffice check out the freezer for the ‘restaurant ready’ meals provided that include locally grown scotch fillet steaks, salmon burgers; local seafood marinara and a Kashmiri lamb curry.

Located 5 minutes from the historic fishing port of Stanley and its ‘Nut’, with the ‘Tarkine’ (the world’s largest cool temperate rainforest) just 45km away, the Cable Station Technician’s cottage is true to the unique offering of the NW Coast of Tasmania.
