The Post Office is a 1913 heritage-listed post office that has been lovingly restored and transformed into a luxury escape for couples but accommodates up to four guests. Located directly across the road from the Waratah Waterfall there are expansive views from every window.
With many of its original features intact, such as 4.2 metre high pressed tin ceilings, arched sash windows, the original cedar post office counter, brass fixtures and walk in bank safe, The Post Office’s varied and rich history is evident for guests to interact with and enjoy.
The space has been designed to be sympathetic to the era with comfort in mind. Filled with a curated collection of antiques, oil paintings and unique pieces. The wood pellet fire is the centre of the living area with exposed brick fireplace to the ceiling. The cosy feather filled extra long sofa and custom velvet bench seat are perfect for curling up with a book or with your morning coffee and overlook the ever changing views of Happy Valley and Tarkine rainforest.
The main bedroom is located in a private corner of the open plan living area. The layout, designed with privacy and comfort in mind, features a floor to ceiling velvet curtain and purpose-built half wall to successfully separate the living and sleeping quarters.
The cosy second bedroom boasts a bed nook, with a cast iron bath. The layout, warm colour palette and lighting has been purposefully designed to create a romantic space, into which guests can retreat.
The main bathroom has underfloor heating and a large, level access shower and toilet.
The original post office counter has been re-purposed into an island bench in the kitchen which takes centre stage in the main living area.
We have a full kitchen that includes a 5 gas burner ILVE oven and a large SMEG fridge, freezer and microwave, which are perfect for novice and avid cooks alike that choose to bunker down, extend your stay and really explore the breadth of Tasmania’s west coast.
