Hawley House Details 

Overview

Hawley House (c.1878) offers guests quintessential Northern Tasmanian hospitality, hosting wedding receptions, intimate conferences and overnight guests, in a unique and spectacular seaside setting, at Hawley Beach via Port Sorell, a short drive East of Devonport. Hawley is the original homestead of the 150 hectare Rubicon Estate, which has been the Houghton family's home for three generations. Hawley unashamedly embraces the patina created by her 130 year history, and the idiosyncrasies that come with being first and foremost a family home, not least of which is her unique rooftop bath.
Guests are accommodated in a range of spacious and individually appointed rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms and breathtaking views, eclectic original artworks and furnishings. Homegrown produce is featured in the daily dining experiences, accompanied by estate-grown wines or a selection from our extensive wine cellar. Tailored menus and function packages cater for Wedding Receptions, Conference functions, family celebrations and Corporate Events for up to 150 guests, if you are interested in hosting an event, please contact us.
Hawley is a veritable nature lover's paradise, and pets are welcome by arrangement. The property is home to a vast array of endemic animals, including nearby fairy penguin and muttonbird rookeries, It is a short drive to the famous wombats of the Narawntapu National Park, and the shy Wedge-tailed eagles, and Tasmanian Devil pawprints can sometimes be sighted when exploring kilometres of nature trails that meander through our extensive wildlife reserve of coastal heathland and peppermint forest.
Easily accessible from the 'Spirit of Tasmania' or Devonport and Launceston airports, why stay in town when you can experience the true wonders of Northern Tasmania at Hawley Beach? The seaside village of Port Sorell, known as the Port of Golden Beaches, is a popular place frequented by locals for its wide offerings of water-based activities, including wading to the islands at low tide, collecting oysters or fishing, or even bring your own yacht!
Located just 20 minutes from Devonport, Hawley House is an ideal stop for your first or last night in Tasmania if you are traveling on the Spirit of Tasmania, or from the Devonport Airport.
