We put family-friendly Tassie under the microscope in this issue and visit sensational Hyams Beach on the NSW South Coast.
Country Club Villas Tasmania is just a 10-minute drive from Launceston CBD and sits within 120ha of rolling parkland, lakes and paddocks. The accommodation shares all the amenities of the Country Club Tasmania, which is just a complimentary shuttle bus away.

All villas are air- conditioned and the bathrooms have a shower, as well as a spa bath or a bathtub, and there is also a kitchenette and ironing facilities. The kitchenette gives the flexibility of preparing your own meals, if you decide not to dine at one of the many restaurant options.
The gorgeous parkland location offers great family activities – and superb 18 hole golf course – so there’s something for everyone. Choose from tennis and squash, horse riding, a fitness centre, pools and more, plus the benefit of the use of resort facilities at the nearby Country Club. Kids will love the playground, which is perfect for 4 to 12 year olds.
Food & Beverage
Bolters Pizzeria, Bar and Grill can be found at the centre of the Country Club Villas and is perfect for a casual, family- friendly bite to eat.
Or take the complimentary shuttle over to the resort and dine at one of the five restaurants or enjoy a drink at one of the bars. The breakfast buffet is fantastic and you can watch the kids in the playground, while you take your time over a second cup of coffee.
Why we stayed
To experience the magic of Launceston – this compact city offers great dining and plenty of activities to keep the whole family happy.
Take a drive to the renowned Tamar Valley Vineyards just 25 minutes away ... the scenery is gorgeous and the Tasmanian wines are delicious!
And the horse riding here is wonderful. The stables offer gentle horses to suit all abilities. Maximum six people per ride, for children over eight years (adults must accompany children.) Book a pony ride for the younger ones.

Cataract Gorge is a superb wilderness area, and just minutes from the city. The suspension bridge is an amazing experience and offers great photo opportunities from panoramic lookouts, along walking and hiking trails, in the beautiful gardens and from the world’s longest single span chairlift and the inclinator. There’s also a café and kiosk, and peacocks wandering about, showing off their astonishing plumage.
