Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in St Marys
Heritage walks, convict credentials and stunning scenery.
Heritage accommodation is a beautiful base for discovering St Marys' past
‘Hamlet’ is the perfect way to describe St Marys in Tasmania. Unlike other well-travelled stops along the East Coast, St Marys doesn’t sit on the coast at all. This is a small, inland township and although forests, valleys and mountains surround it, coast-seekers shouldn’t fret – the beach is only a short drive away.
In its old life, St Marys was a convict working station and visitors can ramble the main street to check out the town’s historical builds, including the original railway station that has been transformed into an eclectic museum housing local relics. Another option for history-buffs is to drive to neighbouring Cornwall to see the Coalminer’s Heritage Wall and Heritage Walk. Of course when you're looking to soak up the town's past, booking a heritage stay for your St Marys getaway is a no brainer. Luckily there are beautiful B&Bs and historic guesthouses scattered throughout the area.
Walkers can chalk up their steps around St Marys. Those impressed by tumbling falls can take the easy path to Grey Mare’s Tail waterfalls, or travellers wanting a snap for their next Facebook upload can visit South Sister lookout. Keen for a challenge? Hike up to the summit instead, or climb St Patrick’s Head for a panoramic view across the valley and coast. Chances are you won't be content with just seeing the coast from afar however, so bundle into the car and search out your own patch of pristine East Coast beach. Head to Lagoons Beach Conservation Area or Chain of Lagoons for sand that you might have all to yourself
While you're out and about, pencil in a visit to Scamander or Four Mile Creek - both are a 20-minute drive from your accommodation in St Marys.
