Hawthorn Lodge was built in 1869 by Ebenezer Shoobridge, he settled in the Styx valley and began growing hops. Over the next twenty years he made Bushy Park the largest producer of hops in Australia and, reputedly, in the Southern Hemisphere.
Bushy Park, 10 minutes from New Norfolk,the hop capital of Tasmania. A pleasing, little village where 19th century houses, deciduous trees and hopfields merge to give an extremely English feel.
The beautiful garden provides a great variety of fruit, including mulberries, apples, plums and almost anything you would expect in a Tasmanian heritage property.
Two old Canadian Sequoias trees over 100 years old, stand proud at the entrance along side, old oak trees providing this momentous living memory of an stately era gone by.

I am a writer, public speaker, running coach and fitness consultant
For 18 months I traveled on a book and motivational speaking tour across Australia, the UK, USA and NZ and I stayed Air Bnb all the way- I had the most amazing experience and met some wonderful people.
I decided when I got back to my hometown of Brisbane, that I would love to host guests the way I was hosted on my epic journey. I had a lovely old Queenslander and I was very busy for two years hosting some lovely people from all around the world.
Just recently David (my partner) and I purchased the lovely Hawthorn Lodge in Bushy Park, Tasmania- we are now operating this Heritage Listed home on Airbnb, and we love it.
Not only is it a charming place to stay, but we are also operating the Lazy Tea Rooms, where we will be serving traditional cream teas on weekends. We also have a gift shop with lots of local handmade and home grown bits and pieces and we offer transfers and local tours as well.
Looking forward to meeting you at Hawthorn Lodge in the Lovely Derwent Valley.
