The beautiful Channel

Heading home to Kettering on the ferry from Bruny yesterday afternoon, we were treated to this spectacular play of light on water. The Channel region is a lovely part of Australia and is easy to miss if you visit Tasmania. Spend a little time driving south from Hobart … take the meandering Channel Highway from…

Winter is coming

Well winter is finally on its way and the arrival of robins back into the landscape heralds its imminent arrival. These little birds, known as Scarlet Robins,  migrate to higher ground during the warmer months. They are inquisitive and often provide company whilst we are working in the gardens, hopping around pickup up anything good…

Unexpected surprises

The beauty of this region is the number of tucked away treasures that are only discovered by getting out and exploring. I recently got out on the road early one beautiful morning with my camera and headed south across the Woodbridge Hill, ending up at Hartzview vineyard where this pic was taken. Really worth the…

Parnella Kettering – “Great spot”

We stayed in the 1 bedroom Bloomsbury Cottage. It was lovely. It is in a quiet spot not far from the main road and an easy commute to Hobart 20-30 min. and a short drive 5-10 min from the Bruny Island Ferry. The bed was super comfy, the heater was warm and the bathroom big, modern and clean. A nice touch was a knee rug for extra cosiness. Would definitely stay again and will recommend to anyone traveling in this area.

Parnella Kettering – “Blissful couples retreat.”

My bride and I stayed for 3 nights in Parnella Kettering’s “Bloomsbury Cottage”…absolute bliss. Sue and Jon ? Take a bow. Your service is excellent. Great bed …soft pillows…large fluffy white towels…( there were 2 spare towels as well!!) and self catering was a breeze due to some thought being applied to the provision of an extensive range of utensils…as well as a BBQ which was clean and in working condition. All of the wish boxes are ticked here!! delightful sunny deck …absolutely private without being isolated … and there’s more !! We stayed in 14 locations over Tasmania in 52 days and our yardstick was simple…”would we stay there ever again?”
Emphatically ” Yes”

Parnella Adventure Bay – “Sublime Location”

This was one of the loveliest holiday homes we have stayed in. Equal to anything overseas. Brilliant communication with the owners made it super easy to settle in quickly. Extremely well appointed, very neat home, with quality furnishings, beautiful linen, a kitchen that had everything, laundry facilities, spa, and very cosy to boot with the added bonus of spring flowers, incredible birds and wildlife, the white wallaby and the cute sheep. We explored a huge portion of Bruny and, on the suggestion of the owners, we took a couple of the quite amazing walks. The cottage is within walking distance to the beach, it was easy to stroll down the road and enjoy the peace of those blue waters. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will recommend it highly and hope that we can come back again soon.

Parnella Adventure Bay – “Great little cottage!”

Would highly recommend this cottage. The place was spotless, cozy, and quiet. Exactly what we were looking for. Enjoyed having the wallabies hanging out in the back yard. Kitchen had all the equipment we needed. The bedrooms were nice, and beds very comfortable. Enjoyed taking the fishing rods down to the jetty and catching squid. Worked well for a weekend away, and we would stay again.

Parnella Adventure Bay – “A peaceful retreat we didn’t want to leave”

Bruny Island is such a special place and now we have discovered Parnella! This cottage had everything we wanted and more for our stay. A comfortable cottage with everything you need for self-catering. So much to appreciate in the cottage grounds from bird life to the ever present Bennetts wallabies and to our delight the white wallabies every day of our stay. We have stayed in Adventure Bay before this trip but not at Parnella. We will definitely be hoping to stay at Parnella again.
