Drink in the beauty of a lesser-known pocket of Launceston at this charming heritage cottage with Cataract Gorge, South Esk River and the beautiful Tassie bush just moments away. Steeped in history, FLAX at Duck Reach sits at the end of a row of blue stone cottages built for the workers of the Duck Reach Power Station in 1895. The interiors, with input from Cocoon Designs located in nearby Penguin, are a sumptuous blend of original pieces from the building’s era, along with flax linen bedding, vintage rugs, original artworks, and furniture created from re-claimed local timbers (we love the striking bedhead – once a partition wall in a Launceston bank). Designed for couples, honeymooners, bushwalkers and nature lovers, nest in the comfort of these charismatic rooms or spend your days exploring nearby walking tracks, including the Duck Reach Trail directly at your front door. FLAX at Duck Reach is the ideal place to reconnect with yourself, each other and Mother Nature.
