Plovers Ridge is a great central location to visit the North East of Tasmania, the Tamar Valley, Launceston and surrounds. 

Plovers Ridge is within a 20 minute radius of Bridestowe Lavender Farm, Launceston and beautiful beaches. It is only a 5 minute drive to Hollybank Tree Tops Adventure, Hollybank Mountain Bike Trails and Lilydale Falls. We are on the East Tamar Wine Route and not far from the vineyards on the West Tamar.

We are surrounded by beautiful country with rolling hills and grazing cattle and the display of stars at night is awe inspiring. For bush walkers, a satisfying day can be had reaching the summit of Mt Arthur.

Make yourself at home and spend some time exploring Tasmania’s north from Plovers Ridge Retreat. 

Remember to make some time to relax and wander our land, or just watch the sunsets!
